This paper discusses load balancing in cellular networks. We compare the performance of both static and dynamic allocation policies for a simple model of two base stations with overlapping cells. In particular, we investigate the performance of the policy obtained by the first step of the policy iteration algorithm (FPI policy). When starting with a static policy, the two base stations can be modeled independently as Erlang loss systems, for which we can easily determine the relative costs in… CONTINUE READING
