Obtaining large spectral efficiency (SE) and energy efficiency (EE) subject to quality of experience (QoE) is one of the prime concerns for the wireless next generation networks, however a major confrontation with its trade-off which is becoming apparent while optimizing both SE and EE parameters concurrently. In this work, an analytical framework for a cognitive-femtocell network is proposed to be dealt with and overcome the situations regarded as unwelcome. Here, the conflict of SE-EE trade-off in downlink (DL) transmission is expressed methodically by Pareto Optimal Set (POS) based on a multi-empirical most effective use of a resource scheme as a function of femto base station (FBS) and macro base station (MBS) transmit power and base station (BS) density, respectively. Then, SE and EE are formulated in a utility function by applying Cobb-Douglas production function to transform the multi- mpirical difficulty into the single-empirical optimization case. Besides, it is analytically shown that the SE-EE trade-off can be optimize through a distinctive universal optimum among the Pareto optimal by fine tuning the weighting metric other than BS transmit power and density, respectively. Simulation results validate that it is possible to obtain the EE-SE trade-off with SINR threshold at different weighting factor.
