Definitions
Reference Cell
The cell to which you are allocating neighbours

Possible Neighbours
The cells that fulfil the requirements to be neighbours

Intra-technology Neighbours
The cells defined as neighbours that use the same technology as the reference cell
E.g., UMTS-UMTS, GSM-GSM, LTE-LTE

Inter-technology Neighbours
The cells defined as neighbours that use a technology other than the reference cell
technology
E.g., UMTS-GSM, UMTS-LTE, GSM-LTE
