Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this letter, a new received power pairing scheduling (PPS) algorithm is proposed for Multi User Multiple Input and Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) systems. In contrast to existing algorithms that manage complex orthogonal factors the PPS algorithm simply utilizes CINR to determine a MU-MIMO pair. Simulation results show that the PPS algorithm achieves up to 77% of MU-MIMO gain of determinant pairing scheduling (DPS) with low complexity.
