Abstract:
Femtocells provide an efficient solution to overcome the indoor coverage problems and also to deal with the traffic within Macro cells. The possibility of localizing femtocell subscriber stations based on the timing ranging advance parameter (TRAP), obtained from E-UTRAN (Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network), within the network signal internals is challenging and is studied throughout in this paper. The principle approach to localization based on Euclidean distances from multiple base stations is outlined.We investigate the specifications of the timing parameters or TRAP used for air interface of 4G network as they relate to calculating the subscriber distances. Computer simulation is used to demonstrate the localization accuracy using multiple base station networks when estimating likely locations of femtocell subscribers stations on a twodimensional coordinate mapping system. However, we further extend our simulations to demonstrate expected location accuracy of subscriber stations, for multiple base station networks, on a three dimensional coordinate mapping scheme. The possibility of of error-fixes shows eight times greater accuracy than in previous results is expected to achieve by applying timing advance techniques to Global System for Mobile communications networks, by using a two-dimensional coordinate mapping scheme. We later compare our study with the effect of global positioning system (GPS) by using a three-dimensional coordinate mapping scheme, which is predicted to give an 72.4 cms accuracy of subscriber station location. © 2012 IEEE.
