Title
(EN) REFERENCE SIGNAL FOR A COORDINATED MULTI-POINT NETWORK IMPLEMENTATION
(FR) SIGNAL DE REFERENCE POUR LA MISE EN OEUVRE COORDONNEE D'UN RESEAU MULTIPOINT
Abstract
(EN) A system and method for broadcasting a channel state information reference signal (CSI-RS) is disclosed. A CSI-RS that is orthogonal to CSI-RSs transmitted by each of a first network cell and each of a set of neighbor cells that interfere with the first network cell is identified. In one implementation, the first network cell has a coverage containing a coverage of a second network cell. The method includes transmitting, from the second network cell, the CSI-RS that is orthogonal to CSI-RSs transmitted by each of the first network cell and each of a set of interfering neighbor cells.
(FR) La présente invention se rapporte à un système et à un procédé pour la diffusion d'un signal de référence contenant des informations d'état d'un canal (CSI-RS). Un signal CSI-RS qui est orthogonal par rapport à des signaux CSI-RS transmis par chacune d'une première cellule de réseau et chacune d'un ensemble de cellules voisines qui interfèrent avec la première cellule de réseau est identifié. Dans un mode de réalisation de l'invention, la première cellule de réseau a une couverture contenant une couverture d'une seconde cellule de réseau. Le procédé selon l'invention consiste à transmettre, à partir de la seconde cellule de réseau, le signal CSI-RS qui est orthogonal par rapport à des signaux CSI-RS transmis par chacune de la première cellule de réseau et chacune d'un ensemble de cellules voisines interférentes.
