Auto-Configuration Downlink Transmission Power Approach For Femtocell Base Station


Sultan Alotaibi


Vol. 22  No. 4  pp. 223-228


Femtocells are being incorporated into heterogeneous networks in order to increase the network capacity. However, intensive deployment of femtocells results in undesired interference, which lowers the system's performance. Controlling the femtocell transmission power is one of of the aspects that can be addressed in order to mitigate the negative effects of the interference. It may also be utilized to facilitate the auto-configuration of the network's conductance, if necessary. This paper proposes the use of an auto-configuration technique for transmission power. The suggested technique is based on the transmission power of macrocells and the coverage provided by femtocells. The simulation findings show that the network's capacity has increased, and the amount of interference has decreased.
