Implementation Concepts for Distributed Cooperative Transmission

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Information theory predicts huge performance gains in terms of spectrum efficiency by using cooperative transmission from multiple base stations. Cooperation eliminates inter-cell interference and it enables a higher channel rank. The isolated cell capacity is an upper bound for unlimited backbone capacity, infinite signal processing power and infinite channel feedback. The authors discuss a combined physical, Medium Access Control (MAC) and network layer approach targeting minimal implementation loss while relaxing assumptions. It is based on frequency-selective Channel Quality Identifier (CQI) reports to the serving station selecting the right user(s) on a given resource with best Signal to Interference and Noise Ratio (SINR).
