Abstract

Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) is an efficient method to mitigate Inter Cell Interference in multicellular Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) systems. In this paper, we analyze the downlink worst case Signal to Interference Ratio for FFR schemes. A closed form expression is derived analytically for the worst SIR, outage probability, and Spectral Efficiency (SE). The proposed analytical technique is used to configure a FFR solution for the downlink of OFDMA cellular system. The analysis is performed using two-tiers cellular network with uniform user density and for three different cases of FFR, namely, Frequency Reuse Factor (FRF) = 3, FRF=4 and sectored FFR. The inner radius configuration depends on equalizing the worst SIR for both inner and outer edges of the cell. Numerical results show that sectored FFR yields the highest SE and low outage probability. Sectored FFR highly balances the needs of interference reduction and resource efficiency.
