QoE loss probability based game-theoretic approach for spectrum sharing in heterogeneous networks
With the rapid development of wireless communication and mobile devices, heterogeneous networks have emerged as a promising paradigm to enable users' data services. However, it lacks an experience blocking theory to optimize data services. Furthermore, due to the limited resources of spectrum, the spectrum sharing based on the quality of experience (QoE) in heterogeneous networks becomes a new challenge. Therefore, to tackle the above challenge, we present an experience blocking (EB) ratio based game-theoretic approach for spectrum sharing in heterogeneous networks where the small cell can lease the spare spectrum from macro cell. Specifically, firstly, a novel EB ratio based model is proposed to evaluate the efficiency of spectrum usage in a cell. Then a Stackelberg game is employed to formulate the interaction between macro cell and small cell according to the EB ratio. Finally, an EB table is given to evaluate the blocking status of a cell and simulation results show that the proposed scheme can improve the efficiency of spectrum sharing better than other schemes.
