Improvement of LTE system performance by reducing changes of inter-cell interference levels

23.09.2014

Interference is one of the most performance-limiting factors in wireless communications systems. The standard of 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in the downlink, where orthogonality between different users within one cell can be guaranteed by scheduling simultaneously in frequency and time domain. However, LTE is designed to consider a frequency reuse factor of one between adjacent cells leading to strong inter-cell-interference between adjacent cells. Users especially located at cell edges may experience strong interference by transmissions from neighboring cells, scheduling their users at the same physical resource. Thus, intercell interference coordination (ICIC) techniques are an indispensable and widely discussed topic in the standardization process of LTE. Scientists at the Department of Communications Engineering at the University of Bremen developed a coordination scheme to improve the reallocation procedure of succeeding pre-coding matrices, while avoiding sudden change in the inter-cell interference experienced at neighboring cells. To do so, they use the fact that different matrix combinations exhibit lower variations in the inter-cell-interference than others. The advantage of this approach is that the variation of the interference level is only determined by the two pre-coding matrices of the allocation, and not by further network, mobile devices or transmission specific parameters This will lead to significant improvement on system performance on mobile devices to an edge of a cell or located next to base stations as well of base stations without impact on LTE standard. Besides, network stability is also improved. Up to now, simulations of the computer-implemented method are successful.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
