Reuse 1 in WiMAX Networks With Beamforming
Source: Telecom ParisTech
In this paper, the authors examine the performance of adaptive beamforming in connection with three different subcarrier permutation schemes (PUSC, FUSC and AMC) in WiMAX cellular network with frequency reuse 1. Performance is evaluated in terms of radio quality parameters and system throughput. The authors show that organization of pilot subcarriers in PUSC Major groups have a pronounced effect on system performance while considering adaptive beamforming. Adaptive beamforming per PUSC group offers full resource utilization without need of coordination among base stations.
