Executive Summary

This paper studies an uplink multicell joint processing model in which the base-stations are connected to a centralized processing server via rate-limited digital backhaul links. Unlike previous studies where the centralized processor jointly decodes all the source messages from all base-stations, this paper proposes a suboptimal achievability scheme in which the Wyner-Ziv compress-and-forward relaying technique is employed on a per-base-station basis, but Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) is used at the central processor to mitigate multicell interference. This results in an achievable rate region that is easily computable, in contrast to the joint processing schemes in which the rate regions can only be characterized by exponential number of rate constraints.
