Load based cell selection algorithm for Digital Mobile Radio
MetadataShow full item record
Digital mobile radio is one of a digital radio standard for Professional Mobile Radio and it is commonly used for emergency services. The cell selection is very important for digital mobile radio based systems to improve system performance in terms of delay and bit error rate. In this work, we propose an efficient cell selection algorithm for Digital Mobile Radio. In the proposed algorithm, each user selects the base station according to the proposed utility value determined based on both cell load and signal-to-interference-noise ratio. The goal of the proposed algorithm is to balance the distribution of the users among the cells to reduce the waiting time for connection while establishing reliable transmission link. We illustrate the performance results for different scenarios and applications in terms of cell load, signal-to-interference-noise ratio and bit error rate. © 2016 IEEE.
