    The main contribution of this paper is the insight that the transmitters' knowledge of channel coherence intervals alone (without any knowledge of the values of channel coefficients) can be surprisingly useful in a multiuser setting, illustrated by the idea of blind interference alignment that is introduced in this work. Specifically, we explore five network communication problems where the possib... View full abstract»

    Maddah-Ali and Tse recently introduced the idea of retrospective interference alignment, i.e., achieving interference alignment with only outdated (stale) channel state information at the transmitter (CSIT), in the context of the vector broadcast channel. Since the scheme relies on the centralized transmitter's ability to reconstruct all the interference seen in previous symbols, it is not clear i... View full abstract»

    To meet growing target data rates, future wireless networks will be heterogeneous with macro and pico base stations (BSs). Allocating resources and managing interference between various types of BSs are of primary importance for achieving acceptable throughput in cell edges. In this work, we propose the interference canceling block modulation (ICBM) scheme for interference management in heterogene... View full abstract»

  • Fundamentals of Inter-Cell Overhead Signaling in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks

    Heterogeneous base stations (e.g., picocells, microcells, femtocells, and distributed antennas) will become increasingly essential for cellular network capacity and coverage. Up until now, little basic research has been done on the fundamentals of managing so much infrastructure-much of it unplanned-together with the carefully planned macro-cellular network. Inter-cell coordination is in principle... View full abstract»

  • Sum-Rate Maximization in Distributed-Antenna Heterogeneous MIMO Downlinks: Application to Measured Channels

    In a distributed antenna multiple-input multiple- output (MIMO) multiuser channel, multiple nodes simultaneously access the wireless channel by cooperating to achieve virtual MIMO links, enabling improved exploitation of the channel spatial dimensions. However, practical considerations dictate that in such a system, the transmit power from each cooperating node must be constrained in a per-antenna... View full abstract»

    In order to expand the downlink (DL) coverage areas of picocells in the presence of an umbrella macrocell, the concept of range expansion has been recently proposed, in which a positive range expansion bias (REB) is added to the DL received signal strengths (RSSs) of picocell pilot signals at user equipments (UEs). Although range expansion may increase DL footprints of picocells, it also results i... View full abstract»
