The Second International Conference on Advances in Signal, Image and Video Processing - from Sensing to Applications (SIGNAL 2017). 21 to 25, May, 2017, 5Gsignalwave. Barcelona, Spain. —This paper presents a resource allocation algorithm for multi-user wireless networks affected by co-channel interference. The analysis considers a network with one base station (BS) that uses a multiple antenna transmitter (beamformer) to schedule (in a time-division manner) transmissions towards a set of J one-antenna terminals in the presence of K persistent interferers. The transmitter is assumed to employ MaximumRatio Combining (MRC) beamforming with spatially-correlated branches and channel envelopes modelled as Rayleigh-distributed processes. The BS has access to an imperfect (outdated) copy of the instantaneous Channel State Information (CSI) of each terminal. Based on this CSI at the transmitter side (CSIT), the BS proceeds to select (at each time interval or time-slot) the terminal with the highest channel strength for purposes of transmission. This imperfect CSIT is also used to calculate the coefficients of the beamformer that will be used to transmit information towards the scheduled terminal, as well as for selecting the most appropriate modulation format (threshold-based decision). In addition, the transmission towards each scheduled terminal is assumed to experience persistent co-channel interference that will degrade the quality of the information reception process. The main merits of this work are the following: 1) joint analysis of MRC-based beamforming, terminal scheduling based on maximum channel strength, and modulation assignment, and 2) joint modelling of the effects of spatial correlation, co-channel interference and imperfect CSIT. Results suggest that scheduling helps in rejecting co-channel interference and the degrading effects of imperfect CSIT. Spatial correlation could some times lead to better performance than the uncorrelated case, particularly in the low SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) regime. Conversely, uncorrelated branches always outperform the correlated case in the high SNR regime. The use of higher numbers of antennas also improve performance of the system. However, spatial correlation tends to accumulate over the antenna array thus leading to a more noticeable performance degradation and more allocation errors due to the outdated CSIT assumption. info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion
