Abstract

Mobile traffic is increasing consistently, and mobile carriers are becoming more and more hard to meet this ever-increasing mobile traffic demand by means of additional installation of base stations. To overcome this problem, heterogeneous networks, which can reuse space and frequency by installing small cells such as femto cells in existing macro cells, were introduced. However, existing macro cell users are difficult to increase the spectral efficiency without the cooperation of femto owners. Femto owners are also reluctant to accommodate other mobile stations in their femto stations without proper incentive. In this paper, a method of obtaining the optimal incentive is proposed, which adopts a utility function based on the logarithm of throughput of mobile stations, and the incentive is calculated to maximize the utility of the entire network.
