Abstract

Femtocells being small low powered base stations provide sufficient increase in system capacity along with better indoor coverage. However, the dense deployment of femtocells face the main challenge of co channel interference with macrocell users. In this paper, this interference problem is addressed by proposing a novel downlink power control algorithm for femtocells. The proposed algorithm gradually reduces the downlink transmit power of femtocells when they are informed about a nearby macrocell user under interference. This information is given to the femtocells by the macrocell base station through a unidirectional downlink broadcast channel. Simulation results show that the algorithm causes the macrocell to accommodate large number of femtocells within its area, whereas at the same time protecting the macrocell users from any harmful interference.
