Reducing Feedback Requirements of the Multiple Weight Opportunistic Beamforming Scheme via Selective Multiuser Diversity
—Opportunistic beamforming (OB) relies on the transmission of Channel State Information (CSI) in the form of instantaneous Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) from Mobile Stations (MSs) back to the Base Station (BS) for scheduling purposes that increase throughput and/or maintain resource allocation fairness. OB is employed in environments of low mobility and low scatter, artificially inducing channel fluctuations that can better exploit Multiuser diversity (MUD). Multiple antennas at the BS are randomly alter the channel’s response and generate peaks in gain where users can be scheduled on, maximising system throughput. Additional gains are achieved by transmitting multiple weighting vectors from the BS, but their use can significantly increase the load of the feedback channel and mitigate MUD gains. Selective Multiuser diversity (SMUD) has been proposed for the original beamforming scheme as a technique that reduces feedback requirements substantially without any significant throughput d...
