Adaptive bit partitioning strategy for cell-edge users in multi-antenna multicell networks
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we improve the performance of cell-edge users by applying adaptive bit partitioning for intercell interference cancelation in cooperative downlink multicell systems. The strategy for partitioning quantization bits between serving and interfering base stations affects the performance of the cooperative networks which is quite sensitive to the quality of the channel state information. The existing transmission strategies are based on the maximization of average cell rate which results in a reduced rate for the users in the cell-edge regions. We propose an adaptive bit partitioning strategy to improve the rate of cell-edge users at the same average feedback link rate. We show the performance of the cell-edge users is significantly increased while keeping the same average cell rate. © 2011 IEEE.
