The purpose of load balancing in cellular network is to deal with unequal distribution of traffic load over multiple cells. Load balancing is a major issue in LTE (Long Term Evolution) system. A load balancing problem occurs when available wireless resources are not enough to support the requirements of users. Such a problem may lead to blocked or dropped calls and degrade the quality of service. In this paper, the authors propose a general load - balancing algorithm to help congested cells handle traffic dynamically.
