Motivated by the ongoing discussion on coordinated multipoint in wireless cellular standard bodies, this paper considers the problem of base station cooperation in the downlink of heterogeneous cellular networks. The focus of this paper is the joint transmission scenario, where an ideal backhaul network allows a set of randomly located base stations, possibly belonging to different network tiers, to jointly transmit data, to mitigate intercell interference and hence improve coverage and…

Cooperative retransmission in heterogeneous cellular networks
TLDR
Numerical evaluation shows that in the high coverage regime spatiotemporal cooperation outperforms joint transmission with no retransmissions and that the gains extend to all regimes if the user has MRC capability.
Spatiotemporal Cooperation in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
TLDR
It is shown that retransmissions always yield time diversity, while channel state information at the transmitters is required to harvest spatial diversity via joint transmission.

TLDR
A stochastic geometry model for studying spatiotemporal base station cooperation in a cellular network is presented, and the best performing scheme is shown to be the Alamouti code, when only two BSs cooperate.
Performance analysis of multicell coordination in cellular wireless networks
TLDR
An adaptive coordination scheme for energy-efficient resource allocation has been developed for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) cellular networks and offers insight into the resource allocation and scheduling problems within multicell coordination framework.
Load-aware coordinated multipoint joint transmission in dense heterogeneous networks: Downlink coverage and throughput limits
TLDR
Numerical results validate the accuracy and correctness of the analytical results and demonstrate the huge gains of the coverage and the ergodic link throughput exploited by the proposed load-aware JT-CoMP scheme.
Base Station Coordination Scheme for Multi-Tier Ultra-Dense Networks
TLDR
The study of the NEE performance reveals that not only the RRLP-based CoMP scheme is more efficient than conventional non-CoMP transmission scenario, but also its NEEperformance improves with the average number of cooperating BSs.
The SIR Meta Distribution in Poisson Cellular Networks With Base Station Cooperation
TLDR
The meta distribution provides fine-grained information on the signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) compared with the SIR distribution at the typical user and the worst-case user and insights on the benefits of different cooperation schemes and the impact of the number of cooperating base stations and other network parameters are gained.
Unified Analysis of Coordinated Multipoint Transmissions in mmWave Cellular Networks
TLDR
The analysis demonstrates that parameters of blockage have a significant influence on the network performance for the three CoMP schemes, and finds that the FRC scheme makes more users achieve the given link reliability for the scenario with a low density of BSs, while the IAC scheme provides better performance.
User-Centric Cross-Tier Base Station Clustering and Cooperation in Heterogeneous Networks: Rate Improvement and Energy Saving
TLDR
This paper considers BS cooperation in the downlink HetNets where BSs from different tiers within the respective cooperative clusters jointly transmit the same data to a typical user, and focuses on the optimization of the energy efficiency performance.
2-to- $M$ Coordinated Multipoint-Based Uplink Transmission in Ultra-Dense Cellular Networks
TLDR
The proposed CoMP-based uplink transmission scheme can significantly improve outage probability and ergodic capacity of mobile users and is compared with that of the non-CoMP scheme.

A Stochastic Geometry Framework for Analyzing Pairwise-Cooperative Cellular Networks
TLDR
Stochastic geometry is used to analyze cooperation models where the positions of base stations follow a Poisson point process distribution and where Voronoi cells define the planar areas associated with them, focused on a case of limited information based on Willems' encoding.
Downlink Coordinated Multi-Point with Overhead Modeling in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
TLDR
A novel analytical framework is developed which includes the impact of overhead delay for CoMP evaluation in HCNs and is applied to downlink CoMP zero-forcing beamforming (ZFBF), and shows that CoMP ZFBF does not increase throughput when the overhead channel delay is larger than 60% of the channel coherence time.

TLDR
This paper proposes a tractable model for downlink heterogeneous cellular network and based on that, the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) distribution and accordingly the coverage (or equivalently outage) probability for a randomly located mobile user in this network can be derived.
Centralized scheduling for joint transmission coordinated multi-point in LTE-Advanced

A centralized MAC scheduling approach for joint transmission coordinated multi-point (JT CoMP) is proposed and several cluster strategies are investigated as well, focusing on schemes that add only low complexity to the existing 3GPP LTE Release 8 system.
Local Base Station Cooperation Via Finite-Capacity Links for the Uplink of Linear Cellular Networks

This work studies a scenario where base stations are connected only if in adjacent cells, and via finite-capacity links, and sheds light on the impact of codebook information, decoding delay, and network planning on the performance of multicell decoding as enabled by local and finite- capacity backhaul links.

TLDR
Numerical results show that the average achievable rate with interference coordination as well as the mean loss in rate with equal-bit partitioning increase with increasing average cluster size and increasing number of antennas at the transmitter.
A Tractable Model for Noncoherent Joint-Transmission Base Station Cooperation
TLDR
A tractable model for analyzing noncoherent joint-transmission base station (BS) cooperation is presented, taking into account the irregular BS deployment typically encountered in practice, and the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) distribution with cooperation is precisely characterized in a generality-preserving form.
A Tractable Approach to Coverage and Rate in Cellular Networks
TLDR
The proposed model is pessimistic (a lower bound on coverage) whereas the grid model is optimistic, and that both are about equally accurate, and the proposed model may better capture the increasingly opportunistic and dense placement of base stations in future networks.
Average Rate of Downlink Heterogeneous Cellular Networks over Generalized Fading Channels: A Stochastic Geometry Approach

An analytical framework to compute the average rate of downlink heterogeneous cellular networks is introduced, which avoids the computation of the Coverage Probability (Pcov) and needs only the Moment Generating Function (MGF) of the aggregate interference at the probe mobile terminal.
