Joint Transmission in Cellular Networks with CoMP – Stability and Scheduling Algorithms

Due to the current trend towards smaller cells, an increasing number of users of cellular networks reside at the edge between two cells; these users typically receive poor service as a result of the relatively weak signal and strong interference. Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) with Joint Transmission (JT) is a cellular networking technique allowing multiple Base Stations (BSs) to jointly transmit to a single user. This improves the users’ reception quality and facilitates better service to cell-edge users.
