The combination algorithm for total optimisation (CAT) is a new base-station placement optimisation tool for cellular network planning. The CAT algorithm operates with two external modules, a propagation module and a capacity module that provide the algorithm with the necessary information to solve the base-station placement problem. In this paper new features based on parameters such are delay spread and power control are added to the CAT algorithm to improve its capability. Results are presented and discussed
