For multi-cell systems employing intra-cell orthogonal communication channels, inter-cell interference mitigation techniques are expected to be one of the key radio resource management functions. In this paper we propose and analyze a simple reuse partitioning technique (with random and coordinated resource block allocation in neighbor cells) that is able to reduce inter-cell interference. We propose a model that is able to take into account that sessions dynamically enter and leave the system. Rigid sessions require a class-specific fixed number of resource blocks, while elastic sessions can enter the system if a minimum number of resources are allocated to them. In this rather general setting (and using the example of a system employing frequency division for multiple access) we analyze the system performance in terms of the expected number of channel collisions, the session-blocking probabilities, the signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR) and packet error rate performance. We present numerical results on the various trade-offs between these measures (including the trade-off between the reuse factor and the SINR performance) that provide insight into the behavior of multi-channel cellular systems and help dimensionalize the parameters of a reuse partitioned system.
