With the rapid developing of wireless communication technology and the growing user service, the demand on the system capacity from users is growing. In the LTE network, the uneven load distribution makes that network resource is not fully utilized, which results that the capacity is limited. In this paper, a novel optimizing mechanism of network load balancing based on the network manager is proposed. The eNBs in the network will broadcast the current load status by the way of adapting a new message format with the life cycle bit when the load of the cell is changed, then the serving eNB can decide which part of users in the cell should transfer to the neighboring cells and send a request to the network manager. The network manager will calculate whether the transferred users make the neighboring cell load exceed the threshold. If not, the users can be transferred to the neighboring cell and release the serving cell’s load burdon. Otherwise, the serving cell will search other neighboring cells to transfer the users. The simulation results show that the proposed mechanism will not consume more network resource and improve the network throughput significantly.
