System capacity evaluation for mobility management in LTE-advanced D2D networks

Received Date:01 May 2020, Accepted Date:22 May 2020, Published Date:18 June 2020


Objectives: This study aims to evaluate the system capacity for mobility management in Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) Device to Device (D2D) networks with suitable handover schemes. Methods: This paper introduces power control mechanisms for 5G based on the distance between D2D terminals. Interference is a major issue which reduces the performance of D2D communication. The proposed system introduces an algorithm based on greedy algorithmic approach for interference mitigation with easy handover for system capacity estimation. The implementation is carried out using LabVIEW platform and results are analyzed. Findings: The existing mobile communication approaches transfer calls through base stations irrespective of the distance between the mobile terminals. User mobility is an important factor for D2D communication and proper selection of mobility patterns that helps in increasing the energy efficiency and throughput by reducing interference. Efficient utilization of these mobility patterns are shown in the proposed method for developing an optimal time efficient mobility aware caching mechanism with lower complexity. In the recent works, less importance has been given for users' contact time duration while they are moving with different speeds. The simulation results show an enhancement in the system capacity of approximately 480 bits/Hz for 50 devices and 290 bits/Hz for 20 D2D users. The simulation results prove that the proposed approach gives better performance than the existing methods.
