A Novel Algorithm for Distributed Dynamic Interference Coordination in Cellular Networks

Marc C. Necker
Wireless systems based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) multiplex different users in time and frequency. One of the main problems in OFDMA-systems is the inter-cell interference. A promising approach to solve this problem is interference coordination (IFCO). In this paper, we present a novel distributed IFCO scheme, where a central coordinator communicates coordination information in regular time intervals. This information is the basis for a local inner optimization in every basestation. The proposed...
