Abstract—The mobile networks use femtocells as low power nodes to improve indoor coverage and thus achieve a high network capacity. In this paper, we focus on a combination of macrocells and femtocells in Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. To achieve a high LTE network performance, we investigate the influence of power allocated to Evolved NodeB (eNodeBs) and Home Evolved NodeB (HeNodeBs) respectively. Using the Round Robin scheduling, while decreasing the eNodeBs transmit power and increasing the HeNodeBs transmit power, improve the user’s throughput significantly. We further demonstrate, by simulations, that applying other scheduling algorithms under the low eNodeBs transmit power and high eNodeBs, results in a significantly increased performance of LTE network.
