Decentralized Interference Management in Femtocells: A Game-Theoretic Approach
Source: University of Rochester
Femtocells are receiving considerable interest in mobile communications as a strategy to overcome the indoor coverage problems as well as to improve the efficiency of current macrocell systems. One of the most critical issues in femtocells is the potential interference between nearby femtocells and from femtocells to macrocells or to mobile handsets. In this paper, the authors illustrate some decentralized strategies for an OFDMA femtocell system, based on game theory, where non-cooperative femtocells self-organize in order to find out the most appropriate access strategy, considering the decision phase and radio access jointly.
