Heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets)—conventional macro base stations overlaid with low-power nodes—are being deployed for reasons of improved spectral efficiency, economy, and scalable network expansion. To optimally realize the benefits of HetNets, it is crucial to factor deployment aspects such as cell association, transmission power, spectrum allocation, and deployment density. This paper presents comprehensive dynamic system level simulations based on the 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE… CONTINUE READING
