In-house Presentation

Intercell coordination and cooperation techniques are some of the most promising approaches to increase the spectral efficiency of future wireless systems as required by
the forecasted market needs. Among them, intercell coordinated scheduling (ICCS) arises as a near-term feasible solution due to its lower inter-BS communication requirements when compared to full cooperative approaches. In this paper we present our proposed Reservation Information Aware Intercell Coordinated Scheduling (RIA-ICCS) solution which considers application reservation information when constructing an interference graph for ICCS purposes.
Our results shows that i) RIA-ICCS allows to significantly reduce the number of edges in an interference graph for ICCS solutions and its benefit increases as the number of mobile stations grows, i.e., when the system needs it most and ii) the reduced number of edges in the interference graph can be effectively translated to a lower blocking probability using state-of- the-art resource allocation algorithms.
