In this paper, we investigate the effect of channel estimation (CE) error on the performances for the ultra-dense small cell networks. Specifically, we examine its effect on the distribution of signal to interference and noise ratio (SINR) and trend of spectral efficiency (SE), and outage probability. From these, we found out that the SINR degradation due to the CE errors becomes larger, as the density ratio of small base station (BS) to UE increases. We derived the theoretical lower bound of the outage probability, which is the function of CE correlation coefficient. Finally, numerical results demonstrate that the CE errors diminish the increasing scaling of SE, as the small BS density increases.
