Recently, the use of LTE in the unlicensed spectrum has gained a lot of attention to address bandwidth crunch. Due to restriction on the transmission power in the unlicensed spectrum, LTE-U/LAA cells will get deployed mostly inside residential and office buildings to provide high data rates for indoor User Equipments (UEs). The UEs with high Signal-to-Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) experience good throughput, but the SINR decreases significantly due to walls and other obstacles that are present in the communication path. The coverage difference of licensed and unlicensed spectrum leads to different SINRs so, efficient placement of LAA Base Stations (BSs) inside the buildings is very crucial for attaining desirable SINR for the indoor UEs. Our primary objective is to find the optimal number of LAA/LTE-U BSs with minimum SINR requirements in the unlicensed band, and the secondary objective is to maximize the minimum SINR inside the building in the licensed band with power control. To do this, we formulate an optimization model (MinLF) to find the minimum number of LAA/LTE-U BSs along with their positions in indoor scenarios which resulted in Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem. Further, to maximize the minimum SINR in the licensed spectrum, we formulate MinLPower model to find the optimal transmission power of each LTE-U/LAA cell inside the building which resulted in Mixed Integer Non-Linear Programming (MINLP) problem. Our proposed models achieve optimal placement with a maximum energy saving of 88% compared to the maximum power scheme.
