For wireless forward link data services, the proportional fair algorithm (PFA) incorporating opportunistic scheduling was originally designed to maintain service fairness among users as well as to exploit channel fluctuations in fading environments. The operation of PFA necessitates throughput monitoring for each user, in general through exponentially(More)
In cellular networks, wireless service coverage improves through partly radio coverage overlaps between neighboring base station transmitters (BSTs). For wireless forward link data services, the overlap provides virtual soft handoff opportunities, but also introduces significant intercell interference which reduces feasible service data rates.

We investigates the performance of movement-based location update in multitier wireless networks with sparsely correlated low-tier microcells. The topologies are considered to have random overlays of different microcell cluster sizes, with distributions spatially of two forms: homogeneous and nonhomogeneous.
