Benefits of Multiuser Diversity with Limited Feedback.
(Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications),
June 15-18 2003.
This work studies the effects of utilizing multiuser diversity in
realistic settings with limited feedback and uncertain traffic
A simple optimal method for setting rate
quantization levels is derived and it is shown that an added
benefit of multiuser diversity is that channel feedback can be
heavily quantized without performance loss. In the limit as the
number of users goes to infinity, even the most severe rate
quantization ($2$ levels) does not reduce throughput at all from
the case with unlimited rate resolution. Some important
implications for the joint utilization of multiuser diversity and
multi-antenna techniques are addressed.
Further, a throughput-optimal scheduling policy for uncertain and
bursty traffic loads is derived. An approximate policy is given
with attractive computational complexity.
