On Downlink Interference Decoding In Multi-Cell Massive MIMO Systems

  title={On Downlink Interference Decoding In Multi-Cell Massive MIMO Systems},
  author={Meysam Shahrbaf Motlagh and Subhajit Majhi and Patrick Mitran and Hideki Ochiai},
In this paper, the downlink of a multi-cell massive MIMO system is considered where the channel state information (CSI) is estimated via pilot symbols that are orthogonal in a cell but re-used in other cells. Re-using the pilots, however, contaminates the CSI estimate at each base station (BS) by the channel of the users sharing the same pilot in other cells. The resulting inter-cell interference does not vanish even when the number of BS antennas M is large, i.e., M → ∞, and thus the rates…

Performance of Multi-Cell Massive MIMO Systems With Interference Decoding
This paper analyzes more advanced schemes based on simultaneous unique decoding (SD) as well as simultaneous non-unique decoding (SND) of the interference that can provide unbounded rate and studies a much simpler subset of SND which provides a lower bound to SND and achieves unbounding rate.
Uplink Interference Reduction in Large-Scale Antenna Systems
This paper focuses on the uplink and shows that even in the case of a finite number of base station antennas, LSFD yields a very large performance gain, which gives a more than 140 fold increase in the 5% outage data transmission rate.
Massive MIMO Has Unlimited Capacity
It is shown that with multicell MMSE precoding/combining and a tiny amount of spatial channel correlation or large-scale fading variations over the array, the capacity increases without bound as the number of antennas increases, even under pilot contamination.

A cellular base station serves a multiplicity of single-antenna terminals over the same time-frequency interval and a complete multi-cellular analysis yields a number of mathematically exact conclusions and points to a desirable direction towards which cellular wireless could evolve.
Gaussian Interference Channel Capacity to Within One Bit
This work shows that the existing outer bounds can in fact be arbitrarily loose in some parameter ranges, and by deriving new outer bounds, it is shown that a very simple and explicit Han-Kobayashi type scheme can achieve to within a single bit per second per hertz of the capacity for all values of the channel parameters.
Interference Management via Sliding-Window Coded Modulation for 5G Cellular Networks
Detailed link-level and system-level performance simulations are carried out, which demonstrate that SWCM offers significant gains for all users over conventional interference-aware communication schemes.
Optimal Achievable Rates for Interference Networks With Random Codes
A simple simultaneous nonunique decoding rule is shown to achieve this optimal rate region regardless of the relative strengths of signal, interference, and noise, implying that the Han-Kobayashi bound cannot be improved merely by using the optimal maximum likelihood decoder.
Massive MIMO is a Reality - What is Next? Five Promising Research Directions for Antenna Arrays
It is explained how the first chapter of the Massive MIMO research saga has come to an end, while the story has just begun, how the coming wide-scale deployment of BSs with massive antenna arrays opens the door to a brand new world where spatial processing capabilities are omnipresent.
Interference Decoding for Deterministic Channels
An inner bound to the capacity region of a class of deterministic interference channels with three user pairs is presented and is shown to strictly contain the inner bound obtained by treating interference as noise, which includes interference alignment for deterministic channels.
Adaptive Sliding-Window Coded Modulation in Cellular Networks
This paper investigates how the basic SWCM scheme performs for the Ped-B fading interference channel model and proposes several improvements in transceiver design, such as soft decoding, input bit-mapping and layer optimization, and power control.
