A Graph-Based Scheme for Distributed Interference Coordination in Cellular OFDMA Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Wireless systems based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) multiplex different users in time and frequency. One of the main problems in OFDMA-systems is the inter-cell interference. A promising approach to solve this problem is InterFerence Co-Ordination (IFCO). In this paper, the authors present a novel distributed IFCO scheme, where a central coordinator communicates coordination information in regular time intervals. This information is the basis for a local inner optimization in every basestation. The proposed scheme achieves an increase of more than 100% with respect to the cell edge throughput, and a gain of about 30% in the aggregate spectral efficiency compared to a reuse 3 system.
