LTE-A present deployment strategies are likely to overcome the User Equipment (UE) performance degradation, in certain parts of the topology incorporated with coverage block holes, due to the presence of high rise buildings. It also promises to serve the increase of high user density, which otherwise results in capacity exhaustion of the macro cells. LTE-A addresses these challenges with new features such as small cell and femto cell in its recent releases. Small cell is a low-cost alternative

In contrast, Heterogeneous network with its ubiquitous coverage can deliver high-speed data. In this paper, several LTE Key performance indicators e.g. average UE throughput, average area throughput, spectral efficiency, fairness index are analyzed between small cell network and Heterogeneous network in close loop spatial multiplexing mode (CLSM). Besides, we also emphasize on the point to find out the best suited network architecture for overpopulated and densely urban region under proportional fair scheduling algorithm.
