In this paper, we propose a load-aware and QoS- aware user association strategy that jointly considers the load of each BS and user's achievable rate instead of only utilizing the latter, and formulate it as a network-wide weighted utility maximization problem to reveal how a heterogeneous cellular network should self-organize. This is a nonlinear mixed-integer optimization problem, and its optimum solutions are very difficult to be obtained when it is large scale one. To solve the proposed… CONTINUE READING
