Interference Cancellation in Co-working WLANs

Summary

Capacity of cellular networks, such as 3G CDMA, B3G HSPA and LTE, are interference-limited. This means that the maximum number of users in each cell and overall system capacity mainly depend on the signal to interference plus noise (SINR) level. Therefore, how to eliminate the interference is one of most crucial issues to be resolved in future wireless networks. The project aims to reduce interference caused by co-working wireless local area networks (WLANs) and WiMax systems. These WLANs can be either non-cooperative or co-operative. The project will focus on improving Physical (PHY) layer and its interaction with MAC layer through the use of cross-layer design, adaptive modulation, coding, adaptive antennas, co-operation between co-working WLANs and interference cancellation.
