A Review of Heterogeneous Resource Allocation in LTE-A based Femto cell Networks with CQI Feedback


Background/Objectives: The Long-Term Evolution- Advanced (LTE-A) based heterogeneous networks focus on the Femto based cell deployment. These Femto cells will benefit the customers and service providers in term of network coverage and spectral efficiency. In such networks, optimal means of resource allocations is the major concern. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This paper reviews a detail study of resource allocation in Femto cell based LTE-A networks. In addition, a resource allocation strategy is suggested by means of Heterogeneous Channel Quality Index (CQI) based Scheduling Techniques (HCBST). It makes use of an indexed adaptive modulation and coding technique by referring the various CQI parameters. Findings: The HCBST algorithm is implemented by analyzing various scheduling technique at Femto and Marco base stations. The proposed resource allocation strategy is implemented by means of two scenarios, namely, Femto without node mobility and Femto with node mobility. Application/Improvements: The proposed HCBST system with modified largest weight delay first with CQI at Macro cell and Exponential with CQI at Femto cell (ML-EXP-CQI) based scheduling display 1.1879% and 2.85% better in term of throughput and spectral efficiency, respectively, as compared to existing scheduling algorithm..
