The problem of transmit beamforming to multiple co-channel multicast groups is considered, from two viewpoints: minimizing total transmission power while guaranteing a prescribed minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) at each receiver; and a " fair " approach maximizing the overall minimum SINR under a total power budget. The core problem is(More)
The problem of transmit beamforming to multiple co-channel mul-ticast groups is considered, from the viewpoint of guaranteing a prescribed minimum signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) at each receiver. The problem is a multicast generalization of the SINR-constrained multiuser downlink beamforming problem: the difference is that each transmitted(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 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 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)
—A distributed beamforming algorithm is proposed for the two-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) interference channel (IFC). The algorithm is iterative and uses as bargaining value the interference that each transmitter generates towards the receiver of the other user. It enables cooperation among the transmitters in order to increase both users' rates(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)
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)
In EU FP7 project SAPHYRE, we study the nonorthogonal spectrum sharing scenario, in which multiple operators are allowed to utilize the same frequency band in the same location and time. A major impairment in such a scenario is the interference that the cochannel transmissions create. Assuming that the transmitters are equipped with multiple antennas, we(More)
