A 3D-ray tracing tool is a software considering reflection, penetration, and diffraction of the signals to provide accuracy. To provide communication resources effectively, communication standards adopt Heterogeneous Networks (HetNets) that includes small cells. A 3D performance evaluation methodology becomes more and more important since the coverage of the small cell networks is narrower than that of the macro cell networks. It is difficult to directly apply conventional 2D mathematical models due to the complexity of small cell network; since they have many considerations such as topography, placement of buildings and 3D beamforming techniques. In this paper, we introduce an effective performance evaluation methodology for small cell networks using 3D-ray tracing tool. From simulation results, we conclude that new performance evaluation methodologies by using 3D-ray tracing tool is more suitable than conventional methodology for small cell networks.
