Multi-Point Coordination and Transmission

Abstract

This chapter discusses different means for multi-point coordination and/or transmission to handle interference in a one-cell reuse system. It covers the more long term interference-coordination (ICIC) being supported since the first release of LTE, as well as the support for much more dynamic multi-point coordination and multi-point transmission/reception introduced in LTE release 11.
