Currently, the networks deployed in the LTE architecture are homogeneous, i.e. all mobile base stations are macro cells. This poses some limitations on user’s connectivity, quality of service (QoS) and data speed which brings out the immense need of Heterogeneous Networks (HetNet). The advantages that are provided by HetNet is wider spectrum, higher data rates, lower latency, eliminates undesirable bandwidth segmentation, flexible and low-cost deployments. HetNet consists of heterogeneous cells of distinct transmit powers which causes interference between neighbouring cells. Therefore, various interference management techniques have been adopted to mitigate the effect of interference.
