The objective of this paper is to provide the methodology and results that is used to evaluate a scalable energy performance comparison of LTE-femtocells and 802.11n with both SISO and MIMO antenna configurations. The performance is derived in a multi-user and multi-cell wireless communication system. A system level LTE-femtocell simulator has been developed and an analytical model to evaluate 802.11n network performances has been proposed. It is shown that 1 Femtocell Access Point consistently… CONTINUE READING
