This paper investigates the concept of Mobile Femtocell with considering the feasibility of deploying Mobile
Femtocells in public transportation vehicles such as trains, buses or private cars that form its own cell inside vehicles to
serve vehicular and mobile User Equipments. This study is the launch of cell-edge mobile users who have always suffered
degradation in the Quality of Service (QoS). Therefore, an investigation on the performance of LTE cell-edge mobile
User Equipment e.g. users’ throughput, SINR, SNR, SIR, spectral efficiency and Handover performance, have been
considered with deploying Fixed Femtocells and Mobile Femtocells in Long Term Evolution network. Two scenarios
have been proposed in this study; Fixed Femtocells with mobile users and Mobile Femtocells with mobile users. More
scenarios maybe considered in the case of Mobile Femtocell’s handover procedure. MATLAB simulation has been used
for the purpose of simulating the designed scenarios and implementing the integrated mathematical equations. The
simulated results have demonstrated the benefits of having Mobile Femtocells over the Fixed Femtocells in terms of
mobile User Equipments’ performance.
