—The problem of transmit beamforming to multiple cochannel multicast groups is considered, when the channel state is known at the transmitter and from two viewpoints: minimizing total transmission power while guaranteeing a prescribed minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) at each receiver; and a " fair " approach maximizing the overall(More)
We consider the problem of transmit beamforming to multiple co-channel multicast groups. Since the direct minimization of transmit power while guaranteeing a prescribed minimum signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) at each receiver is nonconvex and NP-hard, we present convex SDP relaxations of this problem and study when such relaxations are tight.(More)
In recent years, there is growing interest in hybrid fiber-copper access solutions, as in fiber to the basement (FTTB) and fiber to the curb/cabinet (FTTC). The twisted pair segment in these architectures is in the range of a few hundred meters, thus supporting transmission over tens of MHz. This paper provides crosstalk models derived from measured data(More)
We consider a wireless network comprising a number of mutually-interfering links. We study the transmit power control problem that determines the egalitarian signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio under a novel setup. Namely, we assume that the receivers have multiuser detection capability, which enables decoding and cancellation of the interference, when(More)
A fundamental aspect in performance engineering of wireless networks is optimizing the set of links that can be concurrently activated to meet given signal-to-interference-and-noise ratio (SINR) thresholds. The solution of this combinatorial problem is the key element in scheduling and cross-layer resource management. Previous works on link activation(More)
—The problem of transmit beamforming to multiple cochannel multicast groups is considered for the important special case when the channel vectors are Vandermonde. This arises when a uniform linear antenna antenna (ULA) array is used at the transmitter under far-field line-of-sight propagation conditions, as provisioned in 802.16e and related wireless(More)
In this paper, we study an achievable rate region of the two-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) interference channel. We find the transmit beamforming vectors that achieve Pareto-optimal points. We do so, by deriving a sufficient condition for Pareto optimality. Given the beamforming vector of one transmitter, this condition enables us to determine(More)
— In this paper 1 pilot aided channel estimation (PACE) for OFDM is addressed. For PACE equidistantly spaced pilot symbols allow to reconstruct the channel response by means of interpolation. The optimum minimum mean squared error (MMSE) estimator performs smoothing and interpolation jointly. To reduce the complexity of the optimum MMSE estimator, we(More)
—We consider the two-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) interference channel and the rate region which is achieved when the receivers treat the interference as additive Gaussian noise and the transmitters have perfect channel state information (CSI). We propose a computationally efficient method for calculating the Pareto boundary of the rate region.(More)
