A Low-Complexity Transmission and Scheduling Scheme for WiMAX Systems With Base Station Cooperation

Executive Summary

This paper considers base station cooperation as an interference management technique for the downlink of a WiMAX network (IEEE 802.16 standard) with frequency reuse factor of 1. A low-complexity cooperative transmission and scheduling scheme is proposed that requires limited feedback from the users and limited information exchange between the base stations. The proposed scheme requires minor modifications to the legacy IEEE 802.16e systems. The performance of the proposed scheme is compared with non-cooperative schemes with similar complexity through computer simulations.
