Cognitive Interference Management in Heterogeneous Femto-Macro Cell Networks

In this paper, the authors propose a cognitive interference management scheme for heterogeneous cellular wireless networks (LTE-A and WiMAX) with macrocells and femtocells (that operate in a closed-access mode). The scheme presented allocates resources (in time and frequency) and transmission opportunities to the macro/femtocells in the network by considering their potential to cause interference at each others associated User Equipments (UEs). They study the efficacy of the proposed scheme using a LTE-A system level simulator and compare with frequency reuse techniques and no interference management scenarios.
