Abstract

A cooperative spectrum sharing, power allocation and user scheduling method is studied in this work under the framework of LTE self-organizing femtocell networks. Making use of dynamic channel and power allocation, and interference control, all femto access points (APs) in a self-organizing network (SON) can share the channels available to the SON with guaranteed quality of service. Simulation results show that the effective channel usage ratio can reach 75% in average even with no explicit cellular planning inside the service area of an SON. This result supports the feasibility of randomly deploying large numbers of femto APs in metropolitan areas based on the concept of SON.
