* Abstract

This article focuses on the impact of the BTS infrastructure and a possible alternative to improve the Unscented Kalman Filter (UKF) positioning algorithm. This enhancement applies the key idea of the satellite positioning. The analysis of the dilution of prediction (DOP) is realized to obtained the most suitable combination and improving the performance of the positioning algorithm. The BTS infrastructure analysis is based on the performance that several mobile operator give based on the results obtained with the UKF algorithm. First, the influence of the BTS distribution and number of neighbor BTS is discussed. Second, the improvement of the performance based on the DOP is developed. Results for the three mobile operator are compared for each of the defined test scenarios. It is proved that the infrastructure of the BTS has a direct influence in the positioning algorithm. Furthermore, the application of a observable pre-filtering
