In OFDMA femtocell networks, the licensed spectrum of the macro users (MUs) are available to the femto users (FUs), on the condition that they do not spark off notable interference to the MUs. We contemplate wireless data for femto user (FU) / secondary user (SU) in cognitive radio (CR) networks where the frame structure split up into sensing and data transmission slots. Moreover, we consider soft frequency reuse (SFR) technique to improve secondary network throughput by increasing the macrocell edge user power control factor. SFR applies a frequency reuse factor (FRF) of 1 to the terminal located at the cell centre for that all base stations (BSs) share the total spectrum. But for the transmission on each sub-carrier the BSs are confined to a certain power level. However, more than 1 FRF uses for the terminals near to the macrocell edge area. In this context, we conceptualize the cognitive femtocell in the uplink in which the femtocell access point (FAP) initially perceive by sensing to find out the availability of MU after that FAP revamps its action correspondingly. Appropriately, when the MU is sensed to be non-existent, the FU transmits at maximum power. In other respect, the FAP make the best use of the transmit power of the FU to optimize the secondary network throughput concern to outage limitation of the MU. Finally, effectiveness of the scheme is verified by the extensive matlab simulation.
