In order to execute a handover processes in a Radio Access Network, each cell has a configured list of neighbors to which such handovers are made. Rapid re-configuration of the neigh-borhood list in response to network failures and other events is currently not possible. To address this problem, this paper suggests an autonomic approach for dynamically configuring neighboring cell lists and introduces a decentralized, three-layered framework. As a key element of this framework, a novel probabilistic protocol that detects and continuously tracks the coverage overlaps among cells is presented and evaluated. The protocol, called DOC, maintains a distributed graph of over-lapping cells. Due to using Bloom fillers and aggregation techniques, it exhibits a low traffic and computational overhead. A first series of simulation studies suggests that DOC is scalable with respect to network size and the number of terminals.
