This paper presents the functionalities involved in enabling the use of compartments in wireless access networks for achieving capacity and coverage optimization. Compartments are defined as dynamic medium-term federations of collaborating elements for intelligent organizational purposes. The work presented in the paper uses compartments as a self-management apparatus for emerging wireless access environments and proposes a compartment formation algorithm for achieving self-optimization of the coverage of access points. Facilitation of the compartment apparatus is founded in the synergy of self-management tools and the application of cognition in operations of Future Internet networks. The paper presents the details of cognition managers in access points for localized management by forming compartments and proceeds to the analysis as well as providing results in coverage optimizations of wireless networks.
