Mining uplink-downlink user association in wireless heterogeneous networks

By Alfredo Massimiliano Cuzzocrea, Giorgio M. Grasso, Fan Jiang and Carson K. Leung


In the current era of big data, wide varieties of high volumes of valuable data of different veracities can be generated or collected at a high velocity. One of the popular sources of these big data is the wireless networks. Nowadays, the use of smartphones has significantly increased the traffic load in these cellular networks. Consequently, system models that are practical in real-life scenario with the significant for increasing traffic load in cellular networks have drawn attentions of researchers. Studies have been conducted to solve the related interesting research problem of user association in this complex system model. Some of these studies formulated this research problem as a many-to-one matching game, in which users and base stations evaluate each other based on well-defined utilities. In this paper, we examine how the traditional data mining techniques-in particular, the frequent pattern mining techniques-help to solve this research problem. Specifically, we examine the mining of uplink-downlink user association data in wireless heterogeneous networks
