Thank you very much for the response;
We initially considered the idea of setting LTE_config.nr_eNodeB_rings=0, but due to;
(1) The simulation requirements
(2) necessary GUI modifications -we placed concentric hexagonal cells around the middle eNodeB (LTE_config.nr_eNodeB_rings=0 makes eNodeB 5 to cover the entire plot region which is not an hexagon),
we couldn’t. Although we would attempt it if there is a way where simulating only the central eNodeB would produce a regular hexagonal coverage region. We would need alternatives otherwise.
Please take a look at:
IWSLS2’16] Paper (Using System-Level Simulation to Evaluate Downlink Throughput Performance in LTE-A Networks with Clustered User Deployments) for a better understanding of the scenario.
Is there any direct or indirect way to turn OFF a specific eNodeB?
+Thanks for the advice, we were using Omnidirectional gain pattern
