Abstract

Considered as low-powered cellular base stations, Microcells (Femtocells) are found to be deployed in homes and public places. They provide good coverage for very high user data throughputs and operate on licensed spectrum. This paper propose cell reselection transmit beacon (CRTB) transmitted by microcell on the cellular frequency to aid quick discovery of microcell. The performance of microcell discovery is achieved by setting a proximity threshold for the macrocell high enough to impact on mobile user equipment (UE) in the network. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the beacon in triggering cell reselection while impacting little on the macrocell UE throughput and facilitate the handover procedure at the microcell base station.
