Abstract

In this paper, we propose new beamforming techniques based on virtual signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (VSINR) for weighted sum-rate (WSR) maximization in coordinated multi-cell transmission. In earlier works based on the VSINR maximization, the parameters which control the interference power and the noise variance were set to fixed values regardless of channel realizations and the signal-to-noise ratio level. In order to obtain an improved WSR performance, we propose a method which adaptively adjusts the parameters after establishing a connection between the WSR and VSINR. Our proposed method can be applied to the cases of various coordination levels among base stations. To address practical implementation issues, a decentralized implementation of the beamforming techniques is also proposed based on local channel state information. Numerical results confirm that the proposed centralized schemes provide near-optimal WSR performance and the proposed decentralized methods show a negligible performance loss compared to the centralized algorithms with reduced system complexity.
