Autonomous Component Carrier Selection for 4G Femtocells — A Fresh Look at an Old Problem

Abstract

This paper addresses the interference management problem in the context of LTE-Advanced femtocells. Due to the expected large number of user-deployed cells, centralized network planning becomes increasingly less viable. Consequently, we consider an architecture of autonomous decision makers. Our main contribution in this paper, denominated Generalized… (More)
