  • ABS;
  • and restricted measurement


This chapter does not only describe the fundamental ICIC mechanisms used in LTE, but also describe enhanced ICIC mechanisms such as CA based ICIC and time domain ICIC used in LTE-Advanced. This chapter also provides the rationale why those mechanisms are inevitable in LTE and LTE-Advanced.
