A communication network is dynamically optimized using network operation metrics, such as may be acquired from a network controller such as a mobile switching center, to achieve network performance goals. Operational parameter adjustments, associated with a particular network resource and corresponding network resources, are preferably determined as a function of the network operation metrics. Implementation of the parameter adjustments are modeled to determine if further or different operational parameter adjustments should be determined. Preferably, actual implementation of the parameter adjustments is effected in part through providing the adjusted parameters to the network controller. Additionally or alternatively, the adjusted parameters may be provided directly to one or more network resources for implementation.
