The dynamic time division duplex (TDD) system has been proposed as a way to meet today's asymmetrically and dynamically changing traffic demand. However, this approach causes cross-link interference, because neighboring base stations and user elements transmit in opposite directions. In this paper, we investigate and analyze the characteristics of cross-link interference in dynamic TDD systems. Based on this observation, we propose an aligned reverse frame structure to utilize and cancel the cross-link interference. Mathematical analysis and numerical results verify that the proposed scheme achieves performance enhancement in terms of capacity compared with conventional dynamic TDD systems.
