Ultra-Dense Network (UND) is seen as a major development trend in the evolution of future networks, due to its ability to provide more capacity to the whole system and meet higher users’ Quality of Service (QoS). Mobility Load Balancing (MLB) is an important Self-Organizing Network (SON) use case in Ultra-Dense Networks. In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm with concurrent MLB among ultra-dense cells. Simulation results show that balancing load among multi-cells by implementing the proposed MLB scheme is compared with the conventional MLB scheme.
