Squeezing the Most Out of Interference: An Optimization Framework for Joint Interference Exploitation and Avoidance
Interference is widely regarded as the fundamental impediment to throughput performance in wireless networks. There is a growing interest in exploiting interference (rather than avoiding it) to increase network throughput. In particular, the so-called Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) scheme appears very promising, due to its ability to enable concurrent receptions from multiple transmitters as well as interference rejection. Although SIC has been extensively studied as a physical layer technology, its research and advances in the context of multi-hop wireless network remain limited.
