Mahmoud Nagieb, Mona Shokair, Waleed Saad . Studying Optimal Design of Strict Fractional Frequency Reuse in OFDMA Cellular System. International Journal of Computer Applications. 116, 1 ( April 2015), 28-32. DOI=10.5120/20301-2339
The key characteristic of a cellular network is the ability to reuse frequencies to increase both coverage and capacity. Fractional frequency reuse (FFR) is considered to be an efficient inter-cell interference coordination technique well-suited for OFDMA based on wireless communication networks where the cells are partitioned into spatial regions with different frequency reuse factors. In this paper, evaluating strict FFR which represents a type of FFR deployments is presented with four different system models by changing the inner-cell shape for each model. System simulations are used to compare and evaluate the effect of changing the inner-cell shape based on strict FFR performance which performed using dense Monte Carlo simulations. In addition, the effects of some system model parameters are discussed.
