Several cellular operators are in the process of deploying femtocells or home base-stations to improve indoor coverage for both voice and data users. Femtocells are seen as a low CAPEX/OPEX, scalable way to improve wireless user experience indoors, and additionally improve macrocell network capacity by alleviating the load on the macrocell network. The authors carried out RL capacity analysis of a network of femtocells assuming that femtocells were deployed on a dedicated carrier. However, frequency spectrum is expensive and scarce and co-channel macrocell-femtocell deployment could easily be the norm. This motivates the need for models to analyze RL capacity for mixed macrocell-femtocell deployment.
