Abstract -
The Topology and architecture of cellular networks areundergoing a major paradigm shift from voice centric, circuit switched and optimized for coverage towards data-centric, packet switched and organically deployed for capacity. The main drivers for this shift are intense consumer demand for mobile data that has exceeded even the most aggressive predictions of five years enabling features of the newer wireless standards, in particular LTE and relentless software and hardware integration that has enabled the entire functionality of a base station to be miniaturized. One of most interesting trends to that is to be emerge from this cellular revolution are femtocells. Femtocells are small, low power and inexpensive base stations which are generally consumer deployed and connected to their own wired backhaul connection. In these respects, they resemble WiFi access points, but instead they utilize one or more commercial cellular standards and licensed spectrum. This paper survey work being happening in femto cellular networks.
