Abstract: Most of the LTE (Long Term Evolution) network operators are deploying low power small cells in hotspots like airports, shopping malls and corporate offices to meet increasing data demands. Since users are not deemed to fixed locations in such places, the network experiences uneven distribution of traffic load across the cells which degrades the average user throughput. This problem is even more severe if the deployment of small cells is unplanned. In order to address this, in this work, we propose two variant of small cell ...
