In order to analyze the requirement of customer for WLAN, we propose a novel two-stage analysis method: in the first stage, all data points are clustered to several communities by affinity propagation algorithm, and in the second stage, calculating the priority of the central point in community. According to the priority, we sort the central point and select the top central point as the potential WLAN hot point. We evaluate our two-stage method based on the customer requirement data of Lanzhou mobile, and the result shows our method is effective.
