To achieve high capacity in cellular networks, frequency reuse factor of unity is used. However, it suffers from heavy co-channel interference at cell edge regions. This leads to poor Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) and hence poor performance. Fractional Frequency Reuse (FFR) is one of the methods being considered to improve cell edge performance. In this work we present the impact of SINR threshold and bandwidth partitioning on the successful deployment of FFR scheme. We have considered both Real Time and Best Effort traffic. © 2013 IEEE.
