Abstract

We introduce an opportunistic interference alignment (OIA) for cellular networks, where a user scheduling strategy is utilized in time-division duplexing uplink communication environments with time-invariant channel coefficients and multi-antenna base stations (BSs). In the OIA scheme, each BS opportunistically selects users who generate the minimum interference to the other BSs. More specifically, each BS broadcasts its pre-designed interference directions, e.g., orthonormal random vectors, to all the users in other cells. Then, each user computes the amount of its generating interference, affecting the other BSs, and feedbacks it to its home cell BS. Note that the proposed OIA does not require global channel state information, time/frequency expansion, and a number of iterations, thereby resulting in easier implementation. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme provides significant improvement in terms of sum rates.
