Title:
Dynamic PCI assignment in two-tier networks based on cell activity prediction
Authors:
Zhang, J.; Zhang, X.; Xiao, Z.; Liu, E.J.
Abstract:
Physical cell identity (PCI) is used to identify each cell. However, with the introduction of femtocells, 8 bytes allocation for PCI cannot accommodate a large number of femtocells. The current solution in 3GPP Release 9 is to use cell global identity associated with PCI to resolve this problem. However, this solution may incur higher inbound handover failure. A dynamic PCI assignment based on cell activity level prediction is proposed. The system level simulation showed that the approach outperforms the existing approaches.
