Cell-to-cell interference between femtocells and the macro network not a barrier

Dec 17,2008
A femtocell radio study, conducted by the Femtoforum, found that femtocells have the potential to deliver an order of magnitude more capacity than the macro network alone when used in dense deployments, even when occupying the same radio channel as the macrocells.

It also identified numerous technological solutions that mitigate potential interference with the macro network to remove barriers to wide-scale deployment and maximize the capacity benefits...more
