Inter-cell interference modeling for cellular networks

Wang, Yafeng and Wei, Guoxing and Xiang, Wei (2013) Inter-cell interference modeling for cellular networks. Telecommunication Systems , 53 (1). pp. 99-105. ISSN 1018-4864


We develop and analyze several inter-cell interference modeling methods for various fading scenarios in wireless systems. The models can analyze multiple interfering signals under different fading scenarios. Incoherent addition of multiple interfering signals is assumed. In this paper, we present two approaches, i.e., the approximate and exact analysis methods to calculate the probability density function (PDF) of the power of the interference signals. We propose the use of the generalized Gram-Charlier Series to analyze the error of the reference model. Although the computational complexity of exact analysis is high, it can be used to ensure the accuracy of the approximate analysis method. Hermite polynomials are used to simplify the integration operation into the summation operation, thus reduces the computational complexity of the exact method dramatically. The approximate method is simple although it may lead to increased errors. The methods proposed are useful in designing and analyzing practical systems.
