Abstract

Cooperation among base stations has demonstrated substantial capacity gain in cellular systems. The optimal transmission scheme under full base station cooperation requires all users to transmit simultaneously and a central joint receiver for multi-user detection. We consider some sub-optimal but more practical schemes of orthogonal channel access either within a cell (intra-cell TDMA) or among cells (inter-cell time sharing), which correspond to a partitioning of overall channel resources. The effects of various schemes on the uplink capacity of a cellular system are then compared for a modified Wyner model [1].
