Problem description: Exponential growth of mobile data trafficc is impacting not only the capacity of the network but also the quality of service. Introduction of LTE improved the situation to some extent. As high percentage of mobile data traffic is generating from indoors, LTE operating at higher frequencies cannot really meet the ever-increasing demand of data traffic and reasonable quality of service. This Thesis provides an analysis of the network throughput with LTE technology. In this regard a system level simulation environment was developed that included macro and indoor traffic distribution pattern. Simulation results show that with increasing percentage of indoor traffic the aggregated throughput of the macro network decreases significantly. I am a a high school student and I need lots of money to pay for different stuff. Therefore, I do not try to find very expensive essay papers service. I just need affordable prices for term papers! Lately, two possible solutions emerged to offoad the indoor traffic, by WiFi or Femtocell. A brief overview of the two solutions is presented and the better amongst the two, femtocells, are deployed. The analysis shows the increase in macro network throughput by offoading the traffic via femtocells.

The THESIS was Submitted by Ayaz Khan Afridi in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Network Services and System in Department of Electrical Engineering, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) 2011 Stockholm, Sweden.

The simulation work was done at UNIK-University Graduate Center, Kjeller, Norway with supervision of Professor Josef Noll and Mohammad M. R. Chowdhury during Sep.-Dec. 2010.
