multicell processing finite backhaul capacity superposition dirty-paper coding power allocating
In the scenario of downlink multicell processing with finite backhaul capacity in the case of two base stations and two mobile users, by regarding the channel as a multiple access diamond channel with two destinations, an achievability scheme that sends correlated codewords through the multiple access channel with common data is proposed. By considering the superposition structure, fully correlated codewords can be supported by the proposed scheme, which can benefit the system throughput in the case of a relatively-large-capacity backhaul. First, an achievable region for the achievable theory is given and it is proved from the perspective of information theory. Then, in the Gaussian scenario, a simulation combining dirty-paper coding and power allocating is provided for the achievable region. Simulation results demonstrate that when the backhaul capacity is relatively large, the proposed scheme outperforms the existing achievability scheme without the superposition structure.
