In heterogeneous cellular networks (HCN), which consists of macrocells and picocells, efficient interference management schemes between macrocells and picocells are crucial to the overall system performance. We propose a dynamic cooperative silencing (DCS) scheme for intercell interference control (ICIC). It is a low-complexity, low-feedback and distributed algorithm using only strongly interfered neighboring user information. A system simulation shows that the system performance and in particular the cell-edge throughput is significantly increased with the proposed silencing scheme.
