To examine complex cellular networks, system-level simulation is one possible approach used by various radio planning tools. There is thus an opportunity to provide a comprehensive study including building blocks and simulation flow. In this article, the heterogeneous cellular network in downlink transmissions is simulated by means of system-level approach. Not only small cell deployments but also scheduling techniques are investigated in this simulation. The user throughput distribution is evaluated when varying the small cell placement, number of small cells and scheduling algorithms. Due to the use of small cells and proper scheduler, the user throughput could be significantly enhanced.
