Distributed Transceiver Design and Power Control for Wireless MIMO Interference Networks
Journal article, 2015
This paper considers distributed transceiver design and power control for K-user multiple-input-multiple-output interference networks. Each source intends to send multiple independent data streams to its corresponding destination where the number of data streams coincides with the degrees of freedom of the network. Each data stream is encoded at a fixed data rate, whereas different streams can be encoded at possibly different rates. We assume that only local channel side information (i.e., knowledge related to channels directly connected to a terminal) can be acquired by each terminal. We propose iterative algorithms to perform both power control and transceiver design. Transmitter beamforming matrices and receiver filtering matrices are designed to maximize signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio corresponding to each stream, and a power control scheme is performed to assign the minimum power to each encoded data stream such that successful communication can be guaranteed. The proposed algorithms exhibit a substantial performance improvement compared with the conventional orthogonal transmission schemes.
