The LTE-Advanced HetNets deployment is meant to address the increasing demand for quality of service (QoS), high data rates, and coverage extension to mobile users especially in hotspot areas. One of the main challenges of the deployment, where different network tiers share spectrum, is how users associate with the cells to achieve load balancing for improving system performance. The importance of joint metrics based cell association is stressed here, by combining channel gain and channel… CONTINUE READING
