In this paper, the performance of homogeneous cellular networks (HMCNs) and heterogeneous cellular networks (HTCNs) is evaluated and compared. The HTCN discussed in this paper consists of three kinds of cells: macrocells, microcells and femtocells. The macrocells are evenly deployed. The microcells are densely deployed in the offices and public areas and sparsely deployed in the universities areas. The femtocells are deployed in the residential areas. And, a user mobility pattern is defined to model real communication environment. Our simulation results show that the HTCN requires less power (in Watt/km2/Mbps) and achieves higher throughput compared to the HMCN.
