Abstract

In recent years, HETerogeneous NETworks (HET-NET) arises as a promising network technique to manage a large number of mobile devices. By using the networks having different coverage size in the HETNET, it enables to increase the network capacity drastically. However, sometimes variations in user distribution causes inhomogeneous traffic load among the networks having different coverage size in the HETNET. On the other hand, Device-to-Device (D2D) communication technologies have attracted much attention as another solution to increase the network capacity. The direct communication between user devices creates flexible networks. Thus, we focus on utilizing D2D communication technologies in HETNET to avoid the inhomogeneous load among the networks having different coverage size. In this paper, a traffic detouring method is proposed and the advantage of the proposed method is analyzed with some mathematical expressions. Additionally, numerical results demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposal.
