Abstract

It is believed that small cells will play a very important role in future network (e.g.5G) to meet the high user requirements in traffic volume, frequency efficiency, and energy and cost reduction The small cell network is a new paradigm for successful deployment of m-health applications. It can enhance the medical Quality of Service (m-QoS) for the indoor and outdoor end users (e.g. patients and healthcare professionals. This paper investigates the impact of deploying 4G and beyond small cell heterogeneous networks for medical video streaming as an example of m-health application. Furthermore, two different scenarios namely, indoor and vehicular (ambulance) are presented along with their system models and technical requirements. The results show that over all network performance is improved in terms of total femtocells throughput, packet loss and delay of the users who are in the vicinity of the femtocells.
