Summary

In this chapter, we focus on CoMP schemes where user data or received signals connected to multiple users are exchanged between base stations for joint signal processing. Such schemes promise larger spectral efficiency gains than pure interference coordination techniques, but typically come at the price of larger backhaul requirements and (particularly in the downlink) more severe synchronization requirements. After Sections 6.1 and 6.2 introduce centralized and decentralized uplink CoMP schemes, respectively, 6.3 and 6.4 focus on the downlink.

Uplink Centralized Joint Detection

In this section, uplink centralized joint detection with infinite or limited backhaul capacity is studied, as already introduced in Section 4.3.1. A cluster of base stations (BSs) sends either raw or preprocessed receive signals from the user equipments (UEs) to a CoMP central unit (CCU), where joint processing is performed to deal with inter-cell interference. The CCU can be a separate entity, or any of the BSs involved in the cooperation. This is practical in systems such as LTE-A employing a flat network architecture. The detection algorithms are applicable to various static or dynamic clustering schemes as described in Chapter 7.

Introduction

When multiple BSs are connected via perfect backhaul links with infinite capacity, uplink centralized joint detection resembles a multiple access channel (MAC) problem, where the CCU is a super-receiver, and the BSs form a distributed antenna system (DAS) [Mol01].
