An Inter-Cell Interference Cancellation for Downlink Layer-1/Layer-2 Control Channels in LTE/LTE-Advanced Heterogeneous Networks

Recently, data traffic is explosively growing in cellular mobile communication systems due to the prevalence of smart phones. 3GPP focuses on Pico-cell overlaid HetNet, in which small-cell base stations (pico eNB: pico-cell evolved Node-B) with a low transmit power, are placed at the hot spots within a macro cell in LTE/LTE-Advanced heterogeneous network… CONTINUE READING
