Title: METHOD FOR RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN A TDD CELLULAR COMMUNICATION NETWORK AND RESOURCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Abstract:
A method for resource management in a cellular communication network, wherein said network includes at least one base station per cell for a plurality of cells that operates in TDD (Time Division Duplex) transmission mode, each base station having a respective coverage area is characterized in that said base stations are operated such that spatial zones exist - overlap areas - in which the coverage areas of at least two of said base stations overlap, wherein UEs within an overlap area utilize UL and/or DL resources from those of the respective base stations that best match their particular traffic demands in the UL and/or in the DL. Furthermore, a corresponding resource management system for use in a cellular communication network is disclosed.
