Abstract: Femtocells are low power cellular base stations typically deployed indoors in residential and enterprise environments as well as hotspots in order to improve voice and high rate data coverage and provide excellent user experience. The cellular operator benefits from reduced infrastructure deployment costs for capacity upgrades and coverage improvements. While improving performance, femtocells may
cause some interference to other users in the network. However, with the use of proper interference management techniques, this
interference may be well controlled. This paper focuses on uplink (UL) interference management techniques for 3G femtocell deployments.
