Abstract

This paper provides a cross-layer analysis of uplink (UL) performance in femtocell (FC) networks. It characterizes the UL physical interference in FC networks and studies its impact on the delay and the data loss rate of constant-bit-rate (CBR) traffic and on the maximum achievable femto user (FU) throughput. This paper derives data-link layer quality-of-service (QoS) performances as a function of physical layer parameters, thereby establishing key cross-layer relationships that can be useful for designing efficient resource-allocation techniques for FC networks.
