Modeling and Analysis of FeICIC in OFDMA HetNets with Limited Backhaul Capacity
Paper i proceeding, 2018
Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) with dense deployment of small cells in co-channel manner are recognized as a key solution to boost network capacity. However, in addition to the severe inter-Tier interference, the non-ideal backhaul is also a bottleneck in improving the performance of HetNets. This paper proposes an analytical model of further-enhanced intercell interference coordination (FeICIC) in orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) HetNets with limited backhaul capacity, and further evaluates the performance of HetNets. Stochastic geometry is applied to derive the expression of rate coverage in two-Tier HetNets, while modeling the BS interference in the context of OFDMA. The accuracy of analytical results is validated by Monte Carlo simulation. The superiority of FeICIC for rate coverage of HetNets is demonstrated, and the proper parameter settings are further investigated to provide design guidelines for future dense networks.
