Timing Offset Interference Canceller in Multi-Link Transmission for OFDM-Based Cellular Radio Communications
In next-generation mobile communications, it is important to improve the throughput of the cell edge as well as that of the whole cell. Multi-link transmission from two adjacent BSs has been studied for improving the throughput at the cell edge in OFDM based cellular systems, which are major candidates for next-generation mobile communication systems. In multi-link transmission, an MS at a cell edge receives signals from both adjacent BSs by orthogonally multiplexing those signals in the frequency domain. Therefore, the cell-edge MS can utilize the frequency and power resources of both adjacent BSs, which improves the cell-edge throughput.
