In this paper, the authors present a hybrid deployment model in order to investigate the path loss behavior of a LTE-femtocell in a residential suburban scenario. The proposed model places the femtocells in a fix grid to calculate path loss for each femtocell. The path loss is used to deduce the received power. The SINR is consequently calculated from the received power which is then used to estimate the overall capacity of femtocell. The recent deployment of LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks ensures a convergence of most existing wireless mobile communication networks into a universal platform though some shortcomings of previous generation networks are still persistent.
