*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Method of Configuring a Cell of a Wireless Communication System for Improved Resource Utilization ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 12 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,369,271) developed by Simon C. Borst, Convent Station, N.J., Michael J. Flanagan, Chester, N.J., and Karl Georg Hampel, New York, for a "method of configuring a cell of a wireless communication system for improved resource utilization." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "At least one base station of a wireless network adjusts its access area so as to drive at least one measure of utilization of a resource or resources of that cell toward, but not to exceed, a specified maximum level.
