Autonomous uplink intercell interference coordination in LTE systems with adaptively-tuned interference limits

The inter-cell interference (ICI) problem in OFDMA wireless systems is a major impediment to attain high rates particularly for cell-edge users in reuse-1 systems. Interference mitigation techniques combat ICI by using proper resource allocation. Centralized allocation is not practical, particularly in heterogeneous networks, as it requires intensive… CONTINUE READING
