Algorithms for Dynamic Frequency Selection for Femto-cells of Different Operators

The self-installation nature of femtocells sharing the same frequency band can lead to harmful femto-to-femto interference levels. The possibility for operators to share its licensed spectrum allows femtocells of one operator to exploit the frequency resources of other operators. In this paper we propose and analyze the performance of two dynamic frequency selection algorithms that permit to the generic femtocell the smart selection of its operating band, among those available from every operator, starting from the measurements of local interference.
The performance of the proposed techniques are analyzed by simulation in terms of outage probability and the achievable Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SIR). It is observed that, in a multioperator scenario this approach offers significant improvement in terms of achievable network capacity and quality of service to customers.
