Open Spectrum Communication Systems and Optimized Downlink Beamforming

This paper addresses the problem of transmit beamforming in open spectrum communication systems. In these scenarios, the operator or the data communication provider delivers a set of base stations to the final users under no radio planning strategy. In order to deal with such an uncoordinated communication system, this paper presents a centralized algorithm for calculating the optimal precoding strategy the via semidefinite relaxation technique. The problem to be solved is a novel design of minimum norm beamformers under QoS and received power constraints. Numerical results will show the performance of the method.
