A Proposed Network Balance Index for Heterogeneous Networks
Load balancing and fairness are used in the heterogeneous network literature to describe how the users or user rates are distributed across the network. While quantitative metrics of fairness exist, there is no formal metric for quantifying load balance. In this letter, we demonstrate that a “fair” network may not be a balanced one, since fairness is from a user perspective, while load balance is from a network perspective. We propose a new network balance index (NBI) metric to measure the...[Show more]
