Link Adaptation Link adaptation means the dynamic choice of individual link parameters within a given OFDM-framework. As the question of optimum link adaptation is closely related to the environment of the links, many different options exist. In order to restrict our discussion to a limited complexity, we will focus on a certain application scenario which includes many aspects of general interest.
Transmission efficiency and quality of service are demanded for discussing different aspects of link adaptation. The transmission of live media streams in home environments may serve as such an example. Assuming a typical household in many industrial countries one might assume that a critical network situation is the simultaneous use of different video services by several members of the household. Figure 5.1 shows a typical scenario.
Figure 5.2 shows the levels of system organization. The final goal of link adaptation will be the best selection of parameters for all links such that overall efficiency will be maximized.
Efficient link adaptation requires knowledge about the channel, e.g., transfer function or packet transmission statistics. In order to simulate and discuss the options, a channel model is required to deliver the required information. Figure 5.3 gives examples of typical transfer functions. These have been measured using a channel sounder which provided a radio signal of 100 MHz bandwidth. Measurements have been taken for the ISM bands at 2.4 GHz and 5.75 GHz. One WLAN channel covers a portion of 20 MHz of these bands.
Adaptation of Physical Link Parameters If channel bandwidth, duration of guard interval, number of carriers, and carrier spacing are fixed according to the standard, link adaptation in the physical layer means individual,dynamic selection of the following parameters: transmission channel (within the number of available channels) total transmit power modulation and coding scheme (and thus the physical data rate) transmit power/modulation per carrier
Some of these options can be used within the boundaries of existing standards, others require extensions. 1. Dynamic Frequency Selection
2.Transmit Power Control (TPC) 3. Modulation and FEC 4. Transmit Power/Modulation per Carrier
Link Efficiency as Optimization Criterion we start with the definition of the packet transmission efficiency To obtain the efficiency of a single link, ηP,i is averaged over the N T transmitted packets. This leads to the following definition of link efficiency ηL:
Besides the adaptation of the physical transmission parameters as discussed above, optimization also has to cover aspects of the MAC layer. Typical networks transmit packets containing payload data and overhead for medium access, synchronization, and addressing. Cross-Layer Adaptation
5.2 System Concept for a MIMO-OFDM-Based Self-Organizing Data Transmission Network Introduction Future wireless communication networks will provide numerous different services with user-specific Quality-of-Service (QoS) demands. In cellular networks, the OFDM transmission technique has the additional advantage that all base stations and mobile terminals can be synchronized in time and carrier frequency. The OFDM transmission technique is very suitable for broadband radio channels due to its ability of equalization with low computation complexity. The resource allocation scheme is integrated into the scheduler. Based on the optimization objectives (fairness, capacity,...), the scheduling procedure is organized in a cross-layer approach by taking the QoS parameters of the data link control (DLC) layer as well as the radio channel knowledge of the physical layer into account
Beamforming Concepts Beamforming is an efficient technique which uses appropriate weighting of multiple antenna elements to concentrate the energy in a desired direction. The determination of the weighting is dependent on the channel knowledge.
Fixed Beams Fixed beams are uniquely precalculated without considering the current position of the users inside the cell. The weighting coefficients are generated using the Dolph-Chebychev method to achieve a constant sidelobe magnitude. Zeroforcing Beams Zeroforcing beams are calculated user-specifically. Therefore, full channel knowledge is required at the base station. For zeroforcing beams, ideal channel knowledge is assumed to be known at the transmitter. The calculation of the weighting coefficients wk is given
Allocation of New Resources New resources are requested by new mobile terminals coming into the cellular network. Alternatively, all users who need a higher data rate ask for additional resources. The resource allocation procedure for users is based on the interference power measured by the base station and the mobile terminal. The interference power at the base station is measured continuously in frequency and space on resources during the uplink phase.
5.3 Pricing Algorithms for Power Control, Beamformer Design, and Interference Alignment in Interference Limited Networks System Model We examine a system with K transmitter-receiver pairs (synonymously called users), where each receiver is only interested in the signal from its associated transmitter and all interference is treated as additional noise. Each receiver (transmitter) has M (N) antennas, respectively. The received signal vector of user k is We assume the noise vector nk to be uncorrelated with variance σ2.
Significant CSI Selection Algorithm and Channel Matrix Formalism In order to reduce the computational load of the JD/JT algorithms and the communication load between the BSs, we consider only the significant CSI corresponding to the channels which play a significant role in the system performance. Here we have distinguished the significant useful channels from the significant interference channels for each MS. We obtain the estimated significant useful channel matrix and the estimated significant interference channel matrices as
Impact of Imperfect CSI on Cooperative Communication Based on JD/JT From Fig. 5.25, we can clearly see that with increasing imperfectness of the CSI, the system performance when applying adaptive scheduling approaches that of applying random scheduling.
In Fig. 5.26, taking the upper system performance bound obtained by applying perfect CSI in the whole cooperative transmission scheme as the reference, we can see the system performance degradation caused by the imperfect CSI used in the significant channel selection and JT with partial CSI, respectively. In Fig. 5.27, assuming imperfect CSI is applied in the whole cooperative transmission scheme, both omni-DAS and sector- DAS cooperative communication schemes considering different partial CSI selection strategies with different numbers of significant channels are investigated.
In Fig. 5.28, ZF, SIC, ML, and optimum MF with the ideal assumption of no multiuser interference are considered for JD in the receivers. In Fig. 5.29, ZF, THP, and optimum MF with the ideal assumption of no multiuser interference are considered for JT in the transmitters. In Fig. 5.30 and Fig. 5.31, numerical results show the improvement of the system performance when applying optimum detection as compared to ZF and suboptimum detection where estimated channel coefficients are directly taken as perfect channel coefficients in ML detector.
Advanced Algorithm Based on Statistical Knowledge of Imperfect CSI
The system concept of cooperative communication in multiuser MIMO systems is proposed as shown in Fig. 5.32.
Outlook In future work, various combinations of cooperative communication considering JD/JT, resource allocation, and power control can be investigated to jointly improve the performance of interference-limited cellular systems. Cooperative reception/transmission with only partial CSI is of high interest for practical realization in future mobile radio cellular networks Advanced nonlinear JD/JT algorithms, i.e., SIC with quantization in the UL and THP in the DL, with various significant CSI selection algorithms can be further investigated with respect to analytical and numerical results in future work. Statistical signal processing based on limited knowledge of CSI has also been investigated based on a real-valued two user interference channel model. Its application can be extended to realistic multiuser cellular systems in future work.
