Channel assignment and call admission control for spatial division multiple access communication systems
1996 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The methods for channel assignment and channel reassignment are suitable for SDMA systems that accommodate the dynamically adaptive spatial channel conditions and allow for more frequent reuse of conventional channels. Three methods for uplink channel assignment are described: a cost function method, a predictive method, and a hierarchical method. The cost function method computes a cost function for each conventional channel based on a weighted correlation matrix of spatial signatures (vectors) of active subscribers. A spatial channel is created for the selected conventional channel if it is in use. The predictive channel assignment method predicts the uplink received power and interference-plus-noise for each conventional channel. Either the conventional channel with the minimum interference-plus-noise level or the channel with the maximal SINR is selected and a spatial channel is also assigned if the selected channel is in use. The hierarchical method combines the cost function method and the cost function method. The downlink channel assignment method, when not constrained by the uplink channel assignment, assigns a conventional channel to a new connection by estimating the downlink interference-plus-noise level from a subscriber report, spatial signature and weight vector, and computing a predicted downlink received signal level. Three methods for call admission control include: a cost function method, a predictive method, and a load based channel assignment method.
