An Approach to Capacity Analysis of Coarsely Coordinated Low Power Multiple Access Systems

Abstract

Conference paperWe consider multiaccess problem in low power systems, where we allow each user to select its own data rate and transmit power locally and independently from other users. Here, every user has a set of low power codebooks, labeled a <i>policy</i>, which accomodates a range of small spectral efficiencies, while treating instantaneous data rates of other users as an unknown compound parameter. Even with such coarse user coordination, multiuser detection enables a system which is superior to any classic orthogonal division system. First we fully characterise the set of achievable policies, after which we demonstrate that in multiantenna systems, policies are be viewed as awarding protected receiver spatial dimensions to each user.Noki
