Time Interference Alignment via Delay Offset for Long Delay Networks
Time Interference Alignment is a flavor of interference alignment that increases the network capacity by suitably staggering the transmission delays of the senders. In this paper, the analysis of the existing literature is generalized and the focus is on the computation of the degrees of freedom for networks with randomly placed users in a n-dimensional Euclidean space. In the basic case without coordination among the transmitter's analytical expressions of the sum Degrees of Freedom (dof) can be derived. If the transmit delays are coordinated, in 20% of the cases Time Interference Alignment yields additional dof with respect to orthogonal access schemes. The potential capacity improvements for satellite networks are also investigated.
