  title={Hierarchical Cellular Structures in High-Capacity Cellular Communication Systems},
  author={R. K. Jain and Sumit Katiyar and Nitesh Kumar Agrawal},
In the prevailing cellular environment, it is important to provide the resources for the fluctuating traffic demand exactly in the place and at the time where and when they are needed. In this paper, we explored the ability of hierarchical cellular structures with inter layer reuse to increase the capacity of mobile communication network by applying total frequency hopping (T-FH) and adaptive frequency allocation (AFA) as a strategy to reuse the macro and micro cell resources without frequency…

Allocation of Guard Channels for QoS in Hierarchical Cellular Network
A dynamic guard channel assignment technique based on a two low layer of hierarchical cellular architecture which evaluates the QoS of (LMST) low speed and (HSMT) high speed moving terminals in an indoor area shows that using the optimum number of channels and adjusting dynamically the number of guard channels in each layer, theQoS of LSMT and HSMT are evaluated.
