The cell association is of a paramount effect on the operation of cellular network. In Ultra-Dense Networks (UDN), different types of small cells are deployed with extremely large densities. This comes with a great advantage of dense reuse of spectrum. In this paper, we investigate the downlink association of a given user equipment (UE) to multiple small cells, which we termed multiple association. In multiple association, a user connects to M ≥ 1 small cells forming what we call MultiCell… CONTINUE READING
