Abstract

With the increased penetration of LTE and LTE-Advanced into the telecommunication market, many efforts have been made to increase the wireless coverage and extend it to previously inaccessible environments. Femtocells have been introduced in order to provide such coverage amelioration for regions where connectivity is reduced due to interference and signal attenuation issues. In this paper, we introduce a decision policy that takes into account the mobility aspect by considering the velocity of mobile stations and their cell-residence time in order to lessen excessive handoff and improve the overall network performance.
