The implementation of femtocells introduces many technical challenges that must be solved in order to fully exploit their potentials. This deliverable primarily focuses on control procedures for radio resource management addressing the most critical issues. To utilize radio resources of femtocell efficiently, a novel routing of data among user s served by the same femtocell is proposed. Furthermore, spectrum-efficient technique for power control, scheduling (both at radio side and backhaul side and multicast/broadcast services transmissions are designed. Additionally, novel authorization approaches and femtocells’ identification technique are proposed while taking in consideration the scalability of the system. This document designs and specifies the control plane procedures to ensure effective coordination among femtocells and macrocell designed in WP3. Finally, cross-layer optimization issues are addressed here by means of optimal femtocells’ power allocation derivation using the Game Theory framework.
