    I have some questions about how femtocells in the simulator:

    1) Are the femtocells treated as an entirely separate eNodeB, with their own bandwidth etc? Or are do they share any resources with the eNodeB that they are within?

    2) Is it possible to use the FFR scheduler in conjunction with femtocells? How are the femtocells treated by the scheduler? Are they assigned a PR bandwidth or a FR bandwidth? Or something else?

    Dear Tom,

    In our simulator femtocells are considered as entirely new eNodeBs having their own frequency resources (own Resource Block grid), thus it is not possible to use the FFR scheduler such that it associates the macro and femto resources to Full Reuse (FR) and Partial Reuse (PR), respectively.

    Best regards,
    Fjolla
