Power control and resource allocation in TDD-OFDM based femtocell networks with interference
Femtocell technology is a promising solution for different dilemmas in cellular networks. In femtocell power control the interference experienced by the network is divided into two main tiers according to the type of network whose signal is interfering with another network. In utilizing the functionality of a two-tier network where femtocell technology is deployed a major challenge is in sharing the frequency resource of a macrocell. This paper proposes an enhanced dynamic algorithm bounded by two constraints to optimize the transmission powers of femtocell users in TDD-OFDM based femtocell networks taking into consideration rate enhancement of femtocell mobile stations. We compare our algorithm with the macrocell guard system which allows femtocells to occupy only the subchannels unoccupied by the macrocell. © 2017 IEEE.
