time-division duplexdownlinkbeamformingreciprocity
The use of beamforming is effective for users in limited power environments. However, when it is applied
to the downlink of a cellular system with universal frequency reuse, users near the sector boundary may
experience significant interference from more than one sector. The use of a minimum mean square error
(MMSE)-type receiver may not sufficiently cancel out the interference when a small number of receive
antennas is used. In this paper, we consider the use of inter-sector beamforming that cooperates with a
neighboring sector in the same cell to mitigate this interference problem in time-division duplex (TDD)
environments. The proposed scheme can avoid interference from an adjacent sector in the same cell, while
enhancing the transmit array gain by using the TDD reciprocity. The performance of the proposed scheme is
analyzed in terms of the output signal-to-interference-plus-noise power ratio (SINR) with combined use of an
MMSE receiver. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is verified by computer simulation.
