Executive Summary

In future Time Division Duplex (TDD)-based broadband wireless systems, it will be possible to exploit the channel reciprocity to implement Channel State Information (CSI)-based Multi User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) techniques, which will ensure highly efficient spectrum usage. To increase the cell coverage while ensuring the Quality of Service (QoS) for all UEs across the cell area, fairness should be maximized as much as possible. This paper presents a novel way to help improving fairness performance in the physical layer, via fair power allocation together with resource allocation, in MU-MIMO precoding scenarios where the common approach of guaranteeing fairness at MAC layer is not feasible.
