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 study the problem of joint transmission (JT) in coordinated multipoint (CoMP) networks from a new point of view where the system performance is optimized via frequency allocation for 5G small cells. Moreover, we investigate the implementation of hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ), as an efficient scheme facing the feedback load problem(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 set(More)
Coordinated Multi-Point transmission is a promising technique to improve the performance of the users at the cell-edge. To achieve this, in case of a centralized approach, users need to unicast the quantized channel state information (CSI), typically to the anchor base station (BS), and then each BS forwards this information to a central coordination node(More)
Joint processing between base stations is a promising technique to improve the quality of service to users at the cell edge, but this technique poses tremendous requirements on the backhaul signaling capabilities. Partial joint processing is a technique aimed to reduce feedback load, in one approach the users feed back the channel state information of the(More)
Coordinated multi-point (CoMP) transmission has received a lot of attention, as a way to improve the system throughput in an interference limited cellular system. For joint processing in CoMP, the user equipments (UEs) need to feed back the channel state information (CSI), typically to their serving base stations (BSs). The BS forwards the CSI to a central(More)
There are few analytical formulas that can be used for calculating the block error rate (BLER) in block fading channels. Thus, an estimate of the BLER is often obtained using numerical methods. One such method is the threshold method which assigns 0 or 1 to the instantaneous BLER given the signal to noise ratio (SNR) level. It has been shown that utilizing(More)
Coordinated multipoint (CoMP) schemes have been identified as one of the key technologies for mitigating inter-cell interference (ICI) in future communication systems [1], [2]. Under this framework, both coordinated beamforming/scheduling and the more advanced joint processing between base stations (BSs) are included. In the downlink, coordinating BSs to(More)
A centralized coordinated multipoint downlink joint transmission in a frequency division duplex system requires channel state information (CSI) to be fed back from the cell-edge users to their serving BS, and aggregated at the central coordination node for precoding, so that interference can be mitigated. The control signals comprising of CSI and the(More)
