Maximizing the signal to leakage ratio in downlink cellular networks
A transmission scheme is developed for the downlink frame of cellular networks. While the mobile stations (MSs) maximize the signal power from the serving base station (BS), each BS aims at balancing the signal power of its users with the interference caused at the MSs of the neighboring cells, based on an approximated performance metric. A closed form solution for the beamforming vectors of the BSs and the MSs is derived. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme achieves substantial gains for different antenna configurations, outperforming well-known schemes in the literature. © 2013 IEEE.
