User Centric Resource Management for Coordinated Multi-point, with Heterogeneous Back-haul Links

In the evolution of any industry, there are certain turning points which are crucial for the industry to be prepared for them, in advanced. Wireless sector is close to a number of turning points, from technological aspects, emerging operator’s business models, and customer’s diverse demands. From wireless technical point-of- view, in this proposal, we aim at devising novel algorithms/architecture to cover three significant research gaps, namely, lack of network-wide joint interference and quality-of-service (QoS) managements, lack of proper algorithms to realize the gains of coordinated multi-point (CoMP), and lack of accounting for heterogeneous back-haul links. We aim at designing autonomous RRM algorithms that can leverage the potential of CoMP, accounting for user’s experience, operator’s interests, and the interference limitations, in heterogeneous networks (HetNet)s. The results of this research will enable cheaper, faster, and more reliable wireless services, relevant to TELUS mobility, transitioning from 4G to 5G.
