Mobility Load balance(MLB) is an key technology belonging to self-organization networks(SONs) in Long Term Evolution (LTE) system. In the paper, a high-efficient algorithm is proposed to balance the uneven load between neighboring cells in LTE system. The algorithm adjusts the cell-specific offset between neighboring cells (OCN) adaptively depending on the load difference between neighboring cells. If the load difference exceeds the presetting threshold, then the algorithm will be triggered and adjust the OCN by adding or subtracting an adaptive step-size. Also, a power function is proposed to characterize the adaptive step-size and the step-size will be larger as the load difference between neighboring cells increases. This feature of the power function makes the MLB algorithm more efficient to fit the largely uneven load between neighboring cells. Furthermore, a simulation platform with 7 cell is set to evaluate the algorithm with different power of the function. It demonstrates that the adaptive algorithm can get the lower call blocking rates and handover failure rates because of its high-efficiency in load balancing. It also shows with the small appropriate power, we can get better system performances.
