Outage Probability for Cooperative Multicarrier MIMO With Statistical Channel Knowledge

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper some preliminary results of power allocation strategy in downlink cooperative MIMO applied to multi-carrier cellular systems are addressed and evaluated. The system model considers multi-antenna base stations communicating with single-antenna terminals simultaneously and the outage probability is evaluated for a given target rate tuple. Besides, optimal power allocation over the carriers is performed based on knowledge only of the channel statistics at the central station, which is a more realistic assumption and requires small additional backbone capacity. The results show that the proposed algorithm is able to minimize the system outage probability by exploiting the frequency diversity gains.
