Differentiable Spectrum Partition for Fractional Frequency Reuse in Multi-Cell OFDMA Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

To mitigate Inter-Cell Interference (ICI) and achieve higher spectrum efficiency, Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) has been widely adopted by the next generation wireless systems, wherein different frequency reuse factors are applied to cell center and cell edge zones. In such conventional FFR, a contiguous radio spectrum is partitioned in a fixed fashion across all cells for edge and cell center zones. This approach evidently lacks the flexibility of inter-cell and/or intra-cell resource allocation adjustment and the capability of dealing with traffic load fluctuation and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements variations.
