CELTIC CP5-026 WINNER+, D1.8 Intermediate Report on CoMP (Coordinated Multi-Point) and Relaying in the Framework of CoMP.
This deliverable is an intermediate report on CoMP (Coordinated Multi-Point) and on Relaying in the Framework of CoMP. It describes the second set of innovations encompassing concepts about promising principles or ideas as well as detailed innovative techniques in the framework of WINNER+ system concept. For each concept, the associated benefits as well as the corresponding requirements on the system architecture and protocols, measurements and signalling, are considered.
Regarding CoMP algorithms, focus is put on schemes with reduced requirements in terms of backhauling considering two categories: “Coordinated Beamforming”, and “Joint Processing”. As for relaying, a relay-assisted interference channel, and a distributed LDPC coding for a Decode and Forward relay are introduced.
