This chapter presents an overview of recent developments of the advanced UE as well as of advanced BTS algorithms. First the different UE receiver versions are introduced based on the work done in different 3GPP Releases for defining advanced UE performance requirements. This chapter then continues with the introduction of the different scheduling solutions in BTS and then continues to cover BTS interference cancellation. This chapter is concluded with the outlook for looking at other aspects of the UE and BTS algorithms, including the latest development of Network Assisted Interference Cancellation (NAIC) being investigated in 3GPP for Release 12.
The first UE implementations on Release 99 were single receiver solutions based on the traditional Rake receiver, as introduced in . Work then followed to cover the following types of receivers:
