Background: The most challenging problem in femtocell networks is alleviating the Inter-Cell Interference (ICI) between the macro and femtocells while broadcasting the video streams in the Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets). It degrades the spectral efficacy and throughput significantly. To alleviate this problem, a Joint dynamic Layer, Channel and Power assignment with Further enhanced ICI Coordination (JLCP-FeICIC) method was recommended to assign the resources within every User Equipments (UEs) and enhance the throughput in a two-tier HetNets. Nonetheless, it schedules only the Cell Range Expansion (CRE) UEs of femtocells while the center UEs are not assigned and so the fairness of Resource Block (RB) allocation is reduced. Objective: Therefore in this study, JLCP-FeICIC is further enhanced with the Coordinated Multipoint Transmission (CMT) method (JLCP-FeICIC-CMT) for maximizing the efficiency of the HetNetcenter UEs. Methods: In this method, RBs are assigned by a primary scheduler. Also, the UE is detected in every eNodeBs (eNBs) according to the determination of the interference from the adjacent cells. Then, the Modulation and Coding Scheme (MCS) level is selected in all eNBs for UEs with and without the support of CMT according to the interference-free RB allocation. So, a higher level of spectral efficiency is achieved for corresponding RBs. Findings: Finally, the experimental results exhibit the JLCP-FeICIC-CMT achieves an increased efficacy than the JLCP-FeICIC.The efficiency is analyzed based on the average of Peak Singal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) per Femtocell UE (FUE), utility, monetary cost, and Playback Interruption Rate (PIR).
