Resource Management in Third Generation Mobile Communication Systems Employing Smart Antennas
— Third Generation (3G) Mobile Communication systems will provide enhanced high-speed data, multimedia, and voice services to mobile users. Beam forming techniques have been proposed to increase the spectral efficiency of the wireless channel. In a commercially deployed 3G system, it is likely that the two techniques will co-exist. Resource management in a wireless system should take care of channel impairements and non-ideal antenna patterns. Mobile users moving from one beam to another give rise to resource reallocation issues. In this paper, we propose a resource allocation and management scheme tailored to systems with smart antennas supporting heterogeneous users. The algorithm works by comparing the received power in each beam. Elasticity of user requirements for data services is exploited to provide adaptive QoS to the users, thereby preventing dropping of a call due to user mobility. Simulation results showing the channel and MAI effects on system performance are presented. T...
