In this study, the authors tackle the problem of carrier aggregation (CA) in downlink of long-term evolution advanced (LTE-A) femtocell networks. They propose a novel approach in a new perspective: namely, user navigation, to improve the CA performance of an LTE-A system in the indoor environment. The proposed indoor user navigation (IUN) algorithm exploits the a priori knowledge of radio interferences between femtocells to build a geometric quality-of-service (QoS) map, which can be utilised to navigate users toward the locations suitable for performing CA to satisfy the QoS requirements. The simulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed IUN algorithm to improve the CA performance in terms of the aggregate throughput for the LTE-A femtocell networks.
