Heterogeneous cellular Network (HetNet) has emerged as a promising technology for the 5th generation mobile networks (5G) that can be used to meet the high demand of data rate and better quality of service (QoS) performance. However, the performance of HetNet will depend on how scarce resources such as frequency, time, power and spatial resource are shared among user equipments (UEs) in the system and also how interference is controlled. In this work, we utilize UE-centric clustering as a tool to effectively determine the interfering BSs that cause significant interference to each UE in the network. These interfering BSs together with the serving BSs of these in...
