Throughput Optimization for MISO Interference Channels via Coordinated User-Specific Tilting
Journal article, 2012
In this letter, we propose a novel framework to enhance the throughput in multiple-input single-output (MISO) mutually interfering channels via selecting the tilt angles at all base stations (BSs) in a coordinated fashion. In the proposed framework, multiple BSs adjust their tilt angles jointly to maximize the sum throughput of the scheduled users, denoted as coordinated user-specific tilting. Assuming the availability of location information of the scheduled users at all BSs, accurate analytical expression for user ergodic rate is provided, which enables a decentralized deployment of the proposed framework at each BS. Simulation results show that the proposed coordinated user-specific tilting scheme outperforms the conventional schemes employing a fixed tilt angle at each BS.
