Abstract

Abstract—Femtocells offer an attractive solution to locally improve the data rates and coverage of mobile networks, however interference issues may rise when they are deployed to nearby non-subscribed macro users. Power control and radio management are the most prominent ways to tackle the problem. In this work, we provide a simulation framework that is capable to simulate the behaviour of femtocells deployment over Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) macrocells networks. With the help of the tool, we evaluate several available interference mitigation techniques for femtocells, when applied in Inter-Cell Interference Cancellation (ICIC) macrocell environments.
