Analytical Evaluation of Fractional Frequency Reuse for OFDMA Cellular Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) is an interference management technique well-suited to OFDMA based cellular networks wherein the cells are partitioned into spatial regions with different frequency reuse factors. To date, FFR techniques have been typically been evaluated through system-level simulations using a hexagonal grid for the base station locations. This paper instead focuses on analytically evaluating the two main types of FFR deployments - Strict FFR and Soft Frequency Reuse (SFR) - using a Poisson point process to model the base station locations.
