Selective Channel Feedback Mechanisms for Wireless Multichannel Scheduling
Opportunistic scheduling can significantly improve wireless network performance by exploiting the feedback information that conveys the underlying channel condition. In emerging multichannel systems, the perchannel feedback induces a substantial amount of feedback overhead and requires high computational complexity. To reduce the feedback overhead, we consider an opportunistic feedback strategy that activates the channel feedback opportunistically according to the channel condition. Then, we combine the opportunistic feedback with the best-n channel feedback scheme where a mobile user chooses the best n channels and transfers this information to the base station. We analyze the throughput and the amount of channel feedback information for proportionally fair opportunistic scheduling under Rayleigh fading i.i.d. channels. The numerical results confirm that our partial feedback schemes achieve a remarkable reduction in the amount of feedback information without a significant throughp...
