The exponential growth of mobile data usage has brought about the necessity of scalable and manageable network implementations into the current wireless technologies. With the increase in the number of mobile users and better Grade of Service (GoS) demands, current solutions are not sufficient to maintain the transmission quality in heterogeneous Radio Access Technologies (RATs). Moreover, spectrum efficiency in RATs is becoming crucial due to the fixed channel allocation for small cell base stations. In addition to this, ...
