Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel dynamic subchannel grouping (DSG) algorithm to maximize the system capacity considering intended proper outage probability for the downlink of enterprise small-cell networks (ESNs). In the proposed DSG scheme, a local gateway (LGW) which is installed in a building dynamically divides the frequency bandwidth into different numbers of subchannel groups (SGs) based on the numbers of small-cell access points (SAPs) and small-cell user equipments (SUEs) per floor. Then, the LGW assigns the SGs to SAPs and the SAPs allocate them to their serving SUEs. Through simulation results, we show that the proposed DSG scheme is appropriate for the ESNs compared to the conventional small-cell networks in which all SAPs use the number of fixed SGs in terms of the system capacity and outage probability.
