Furthermore, most previous FFR-works [8-14], , [24-26] do not address a severe cross-tier interference at the boundary of cell center and cell edge (referred to here as intermediary region) which could seriously degrade performance of both macro and femto
UEs in this region.
We consider a two-tier Macro femto
HetNet (see Fig.
Further, from the equations (6), (7) and (8), the throughput for macro and femto
can be calculated as follow:
It takes into account the MPC and also the power consumption of the femto
cells: current status and future directions [interaktyvus], International Journal of Next-Generation Networks.
It is also compatible with Micro, Macro and Femto
In the first option, repeaters is used to re-transmit the signal that was sent from outdoor base station with power amplification or demodulation-modulation process, while in the other option, femto
cells are installed to extend the outdoor base station coverage range and accomplish the indoor communication requirement.
This can be done in a couple of ways such as using femto
type solutions if you are on 3G network in a home environment, Wi-Fi, and of course, optimising your own mobile network.
Alcatel-Lucent is trialing with Zain its end-to-end Femto-based 9360 Small Cells portfolio, including the 9361 Home Cell, the 9362 Enterprise Cell, the 9366 Small Cell Gateway, and its best-in-class network management solution which combines the strengths of Alcatel-Lucent's Wireless Management System, Wireless Provisioning System and the Femto
Device Manager from its Motive Product Division.
picoChip's PC333, a System-on-Chip (SoC) device is designed to extend the femtocell into the realm of public access infrastructure such as metro femto
, rural femto
and strand-mounted systems, It is asserted to be the first femtocell chip to support 32 channels (scalable to 64) for simultaneous voice and HSPA+ data, the first to support MIMO, the first to support soft-handover and the first to conform to the Local Area Basestation (LABS) standard.
The Femtocell Industry Awards are organized by the Femto
Forum to recognize outstanding contributions to the industry during the past year.
This is good news for Zyxel, as the firm has been devoted to development of WiMAX and LTE-based devices, including the aforementioned fixed LTE router and WiMAX network cards, modems, IADs (integrated access devices), Femto
cells and Pico cells.
