Long Term Evolution (LTE) is promising standard for data rate and system capacity (coverage) in wirelesses communication history. Inter cell interference (ICI) is a dominate impairment of LTE systems. In interference, modeling and analysis have focused on the first tier only, but considering ICI arises from the second tier is very crucial in communication system standard and implementations too. In this research work interference modeling is proposed and analyzed for the first two subsequent tires under various channel environments. The work is analytically quantified with respect to standard parameters and system models using Matlab and other supportive tools. Thus, link level simulation results demonstrate, ICI beyond the first tier becomes active in urban environment and the smaller cell size increases ICI power in LTE.
