Abstract: Femtocell technology brings extended low-power radio coverage directly in the indoor premises, where propagation loss is typically highest. It also enriches both macrocell wide-area and in-building solutions in terms of coverage & capacity. The integration of femtocells into heterogeneous cellular networks is foreseen as a low-power and low-cost solution to cope with the exponential growth of required data traffic volumes, offload the macro base stations and offer high performance mobile networks. However, the massive and unplanned deployment of femtocells and their uncoordinated operations may result in harmful co-channel interference and cause significant power waste in order to maintain an acceptable user performance. In this work, we survey the technical challenges of femtocells deployment and the available energy control techniques. Moreover, we look into adaptive mechanisms for femtocell technology to cover the way towards green-oriented mobile networks. Our intention is to exam ine how femtocell deployment can share the available radio resources efficiently in order to limit the average power consumption and mitigate cochannel interference. Besides the introduction of the basic ideas for optimizing the spectral and energy efficiency in femtocell networks, typical interference management techniques are discussed too, with a special emphasis on power control methodologies.
