Coverage and Association Bias Analysis for Backhaul Constrained HetNets with eICIC and CRE

Coverage and Association Bias Analysis for Backhaul Constrained HetNets with eICIC and CRE Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) are envisioned as a key solution to address the ever increasing capacity demand in wireless networks. With the deployment of enhanced radio access technologies, the non-ideal backhaul will become a potential network bottleneck. However, the impact of backhaul capacities (BCs) on the network coverage and offloading are not well understood. To address these issues, using tools from stochastic geometry, we propose a tractable framework for analyzing the impact of BCs on the network coverage and the optimal offloading bias in HetNets with cell range expansion (CRE) and time domain enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) techniques. Conditioned on guaranteeing the minimum quality of service (QoS) of serving users, the coverage probability is derived as a function of offloading bias and BC parameters. We show how non-ideal backhaul alters the network coverage and the optimal bias. Compared with the perfect backhaul case, the optimal coverage and the optimal bias exhibit different behaviors in the case of limited BC. Wireless Personal Communications Springer Journals
