uses backhaul over the IP network. It is a promising technology that provides higher data rates for indoor users improves the quality of service and minimizes interference. One of the main challenges for dense femtocell networks is handover between macocell-femtocell, femtocell-femtocell and selection of the optimal neighbor list. Traditional macrocell networks use a central radio network controller (RNC) to manage the radio resources of several macro base stations and femtocells that have been deployed within the macrocell. However, such systems are very challenging to deploy; instead the femtocell network needs to be equipped with SON (self-organized-networking) capability and femotocell access point management.
