Interference Coordination Strategies for Content Update Dissemination in LTE-A
MetadataShow full item record
Opportunistic traffic offloading has been proposed to tackle overload problems in cellular networks. However, they only address the problem of deadline-based content propagation in the cellular system, given wireless environment characterization. In contrast, we cope with the traffic offloading issue from another perspective: the base station interference coordination problem. In particular, we aim at the minimization of the total transmission time spent by the base stations in order to inject contents into the network, and we leverage the recently proposed ABSF technique to keep under control intercell interference. We formulate an optimization problem, prove that it is NP-Complete, and propose a near-optimal heuristic. Our proposed algorithm substantially outperforms classical intercell interference approaches proposed in the literature, as we evaluate through the simulation of dense LTE-A network scenarios.
