Abstract
The 4G Planning Tool is a simulation tool for 4G wireless communications. This tool is a mobile traffic simulator (MTS) based on multiagent systems, developed using Google Maps and JavaScript programming languages. The simulator uses a multi-agent model and it is used in this research work with updated data to analyse base stations in cellular networks for proper capacity and coverage planning in real scenarios. Nevertheless, it can be used in many other applications, for instance, to model and study the evolution of social events. The planning can be carried out anywhere in the world where Google Maps is available Results from simulations are obtained and analysed, allowing to check whether there is a need to upgrade the cellular network.
