—In this paper, we address the problem of designing a joint scheduling and power control algorithm in a downlink coordinated multi-point (CoMP) cluster supporting CoMP joint transmission. The objective is to maximize the cell-edge throughput under per-point power constraints. By an analytical derivation, binary power control is proved to be the optimal(More)
In this article, we address the resource allocation problem for the downlink of a large network multiple input multiple output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing system with 3-sector base stations. The system is statically divided into a number of disjoint clusters of sectors. A two-step resource allocation scheme is proposed involving the(More)
In cellular communication systems with frequency reuse factor of one, user terminals (UT) at the cell-edge are prone to intercell interference. Joint processing is one of the coordinated multipoint transmission techniques proposed to mitigate this interference. In the case of centralized joint processing, the channel state information fed back by the users(More)
—In this paper, we consider a static cluster of base stations where joint processing is allowed in the downlink. The partial joint processing scheme is a user-centric approach where subclusters or active sets of base stations are dynamically defined for each user in the cluster. In frequency selective channels, the definition of the subclusters or active(More)
