Learning Enhanced Environment Perception for Cooperative Power Control

The vast proliferation of wireless networking devices, coupled with the trend for short-range communications in dense residential environments, imposes new challenges for the efficient addressing of problems resulting from co-existence of heterogeneous devices (e.g., interference) under capacity and energy constraints. This paper proposes and evaluates a cooperative distributed algorithm for power control and interference mitigation based on ad-hoc communication of heterogeneous yet peer networking devices, driven by enhanced situation awareness and learning capabilities; the learning capabilities evolve the way a network element perceives its environment. The gains of this approach are highlighted through its application in WiFi APs.
