Interference-Aware Radio Resource Management for Local Area Wireless Networks
Interference-aware multiple access is an enabler to cost-efficient and reliable high data-rate local area wireless access. In this paper, the authors propose an interference-aware radio resource management scheme where receivers inform about their throughput, interference, and signal levels by means of broadcast messages tied to data reception. In the proposed scheme, the conventional scheduler is extended to interference-aware operation where individual scheduling decisions are based on estimated change in system-level performance. The performance of the proposed scheme is evaluated in system simulations where it is compared to a conventional scheduler and a centralized scheduler (global optimum).
