Macrocell-assisted small cell concepts, such as "Phantom cell concept" and "soft cell concept", have been proposed previously for interference management, flexible cell planning, and energy saving in dense small cell deployments. These concepts require macrocell involvement to improve links between small cell and user. Since target implementation areas of the concepts are crowded urban areas (e.g. downtown New York City) to satisfy the data need, more realistic simulations are needed to be implemented compared to conventional evaluations. In this paper, as a new approach to urban area LTE simulations, Manhattan grid layout is presented and implemented for mobility performance of Macrocell-assisted small Cell concept. The results show that the macrocell involvement to improve mobility performance gives a great advantage compared to using the conventional mobility solution for dense small cell deployments.
