Abstract: Deployment of Femtocell Base Stations aka Femtos for improving network coverage and data rates in indoors is an emerging practice in cellular systems. However, if Femtos are not placed optimally they do not provide these improvements, thus defeating the purpose of their deployment in indoors in the first place. In this paper, we propose a novel heuristic solution for Femto placement which guarantees minimum Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) using fewer number of Femtos. We define a mathematical model ...
