In this paper, we consider the problem of joint adaptive beamforming from multiple Access Points (APs), equipped with array antennas, to multiple single-antenna User Equipments (UEs). We derive an iterative algorithm for Multi-Cell Beam-Forming (MCBF) under per-cell power constraints and the constraint that a UE may receive data transmission from a single AP. The scheme is suitable for coordinated beamforming downlink transmission in a Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) cellular network. Simulation… CONTINUE READING
