Pilot contamination leads to a dramatic performance loss in massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. In this paper, we propose an advanced- fractional frequency reuse scheme for massive MIMO systems to tackle the pilot contamination problem. We optimize the size of a cell-center region (CCR) to maximize the average throughput of the system… CONTINUE READING
