Cellular planning also called radio network planning is a crucial stage for the deployment of a wireless network. The enormous increase in data traffic requires augmentation of coverage, capacity, throughput, quality of service and optimized cost of the network. The main goal of cellular planning is to enhance the spectral efficiency and hence the throughput of a network. A novel CoMP algorithm has been discussed with two-tier heterogeneous network. Number of clusters has been obtained using V-R (variance ratio) Criterion. The centroid of a cluster obtained using K-means algorithm provides the deployment of BS position. Application of CoMP in this network using DPS approach with sleep mode of power saving, provides higher energy efficiency, SINR and throughput as compared to nominal CoMP. CoMP basically describes a scheme in which a group of base stations (BS) dynamically co-ordinate and co-operate among themselves to convert interference into a beneficial signal. Network planning using stochastic method and Voronoi Tessellation with two-tier network has been applied to a dense region of Surat city in Gujarat state of India. The results show clear improvement in signal-to-interference plus noise ratio (SINR) by 25% and energy efficiency of the network by 28% using the proposed CoMP transmission.
