This paper provides a comparative performance evaluation of various load balancing schemes in cellular packet networks. With respect to traditional schemes, that measure each cell load in terms of number of admitted calls, our schemes use supplementary packet level information, expressed in terms of effective resource consumption of each individual call when retransmission mechanisms are employed. The simulation model adopted is based on a toroidal cellular network topology, to avoid border… CONTINUE READING
