A Statistical Model for Uplink/Downlink Intercell Interference and Cell Capacity in TDD HetNets

Abstract

Time-division duplexing (TDD) systems can allow a dynamic adjustment of uplink and downlink resources according to the time-variant traffic loads. The interference generated by the concurrent uplink and downlink transmission in different cells, brings a new challenge to interference modeling in cellular networks. In this paper, an analytical framework is developed to evaluate the performance of a TDD system in heterogeneous networks (HetNets) which considers a concurrent uplink and downlink transmission in two different types of cells, macro and small cells. Firstly, we derive an analytical expression for the distribution of the interferer location considering all possible interference scenarios that could occur in TDD- based networks while taking into account the harmful impact of interference. Secondly, based on the latter result, we derive the distribution and moment generating function (MGF) of the uplink and downlink inter-cell interference considering a network consisting of one macro cell and one small cell. Finally, we build on the derived expressions to analyze the average capacity of the reference cell in both uplink and downlink transmissions. Monte- Carlo simulation results are provided to demonstrate the accuracy of the derived analytical expressions, in various realistic scenarios.
