Abstract

Effective interference management has been recognized by the industry and standardization bodies as a key enabler for 4G systems. This work is about static Inter-Cell Interference Coordination for OFDMA based cellular networks such as LTE. The majority of previous ICIC studies, both theoretical and simulation-based, have been conducted considering synthetic and/or small cellular layouts. In this work, the performance of static ICIC strategies in non-regular cellular layout is studied introducing some related RRM functions in the methodology. The overall performance assessment gives special attention to the efficiency vs. fairness tradeoff and the elements associated to it. Results show that the design of suitable and effective ICIC schemes for realistic cellular networks can not be done by simply extending classical approaches.
