Summary: 
ICI (Inter-Cell Interference) mitigation schemes at the cell border are frequently dealt with as a special issue in 3GPP LTE (Long Term Evolution). However, few papers have analyzed the outage performance for the ICI mitigation schemes. In this paper, we propose a generalized cell planning scheme termed QBPA (Quality of Service based Band Power Allocation). Utilizing the QBPA scheme, we measure how much increase in channel capacity can be obtained through the flexible control of bandwidth and power in multi-cell forward-link environments. In addition, the feasible performance of the conventional schemes can be evaluated as long as those schemes are specific forms of the QBPA.
