Frequency-adaptive multiuser scheduling in
OFDM utilizes the
frequency-selective small-scale fading to
allocate subcarriers with
advantageous signal-to-noise ratio to each user.
Due to channel
time-variability and delays of the transmission control loop,
this will in general require channel prediction.
Division Duplex) uplinks pose the most challenging prediction
problem: All sub-bands that may potentially
be allocated must here be
predicted for all involved user terminals, based on pilots
transmitted from all terminals.
This poses challenges with respect
to prediction accuracy, estimator complexity and
This paper explores the design,
performance and complexity
of Kalman predictors used for uplink prediction,
in the context of the EU WINNER project baseline
One conclusion is
that uplink prediction that is useful at
vehicular velocities in
4G systems operating at 3-5~GHz is indeed feasible.
the channel predictability depends crucially on
the local fading environment, so predictors
should be based on models
of the Doppler spectrum for each terminal.
A set of Kalman predictors, each of which
simultaneously predicts the channels from
from a low number of users, using a low number
of pilot-bearing subcarriers as measurements,
provides good performance at reasonable computational
