With the rapid development of mobile communication, mobile networks become more and more complex. Self-organizing network (SON) is a research focus. This article firstly gives briefly review on the performance of SONs that without physical backhaul interface, and then introduces a MLB algorithm which meets the requirements of this kind of SONs. Finally, a new scheme to improve the performances of LTE-Advanced network is proposed, and simulation shows that the scheme is of good performance.
