Abstract: LTE (Long Term Evolution)also popular as 4G LTE is the latest mobile technology which uses VOIP technology for communication. There are various limiting factors of wireless cellular technology such as delay, throughput, latency etc, but the most effecting limiting factor is Inter cell Interference (ICI). It can be reduced by using different methods of Frequency reuse techniques. Ns3 supports almost all the popular technologies including LTE, WLAN and Ethernet. LTE module is available to simulate 4G environment by applying different frequency reuse algorithm modules, different handover techniques and much more. In this paper, the different frequency reuse algorithms are presented theoretically for designing 4G LTE topology are discussed and simulated using. The simulation results indicates that the soft frequency reuse algorithm achieves highest system performance in comparison of Soft FFR and Distributed.
