Claim of US Patent No. 9,860,849

1. A method for determining a transmit power level for a wireless device, the method comprising:
obtaining a potential interference of a neighboring sector caused by an increased transmit power level of the wireless device,
the potential interference being based on a reference signal strength of the neighboring sector measured at the wireless device,
wherein obtaining the potential interference is performed upon determining that the neighboring sector is loaded beyond a
threshold; and

when the potential interference is within an interference threshold, setting a maximum transmit power level using the increased
transmit power level.
