The ability to access cellular network serves as the basis of any Key Performance Indicator to be measured. Accessing it allows subscribers to other features or value-added services rendered by the telecommunications operator. The inability to access telecommunication services continues to plunge the performance of the Global System for Mobile Communication network in Nigeria. Most often, when subscribers are denied access, it reduces the overall Call Success Rate (CSR). To this end, network samples were collected during drive test in Enugu State Nigeria, and GSM parameters that prompt blocked calls were extracted from the log-files using TEMS Discovery. The various causes of blocked calls that are software related and their respective solutions were embedded in an Artificial Intelligent system using a Case-Based Reasoning approach to avoid such blocked calls. The log-file was run with the AI system; the result shows that the system accessibility was improved by 5.23%

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
