This paper presents a survey of intercell interference mitigation techniques in long term evolution (LTE) networks and focuses on algorithms which are more relevance with LTE downlink networks. A total of 20 different algorithms are reviewed and a qualitative comparison is done in terms of cell throughput and cell edge throughput. The comparison provided in(More)
Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) are appropriate networks that can be applied to intelligent transportation systems. In VANET, messages exchanged among vehicles may be damaged by attacker nodes. Therefore, security in message forwarding is an important factor. We propose the Detection of Malicious Vehicles (DMV) algorithm through monitoring to detect(More)
This survey paper provides a performance evaluation of some cell selection techniques proposed for picocells in the Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) networks. Picocell is the focus of this study because it can be deployed in areas with high volume of traffic (such as hotspots) so as to improve the overall system capacity. A number of techniques are(More)
The Intercell Interference (ICI) problem is one of the main challenges in Long Term Evolution (LTE) downlink system. In order to deal with the ICI problem, this paper proposes a joint resource block and transmit power allocation scheme in LTE downlink networks. The proposed scheme is implemented in three phases: (1) the priority of users is calculated based(More)
In heterogeneous network (HetNet), the coverage area of picocell is small due to transmission power difference between macro eNodeB (eNB) and pico eNB. As a result, the traffic load is distributed unequally which yields to macrocell overloading. In order to overcome this issue, cell range expansion (CRE) technique has been proposed. However, the CRE(More)
introduction Communications among vehicles is an important field of study for transportation systems. Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) are appropriate networks that can be applied to intelligent transportation systems (Nadeem, 2006). VANET is based on short-range wireless communications among vehicles and is built on-the-fly and do not need any(More)
System level simulations are required to evaluate the influences of cell planning, scheduling, or interference management methods on the performance of the new mobile network technologies. Interference is one of the important challenges when co-channel is used as the frequency deployment for macrocell- picocell scenario. Interference could degrade the(More)
