Femtocell technology is expected to improve both coverage and capacity, especially indoors. Providers of cellular services are increasingly implementing this technology in their networks. However, the decentralized manner of femtocells operation introduces several challenges. This paper presents an overview of the femtocells. It highlights the network requirements for deploying femtocells and discusses the major issues that affect their operation and performance. The paper also describes the key challenges of deploying femtocells and some of the proposed solutions. It then presents the future direction on applying optimization to enhance femtocell performance.
