Title: Intra- and inter-cell interference investigations for broadband radio access systems above 10 GHz, Journal of Telecommunications and Information Technology, 2001, nr 2


Local multipoint distribution systems (LMDS) operating above 10 GHz have a large bandwidth (2–3 GHz) but a very limited range. These systems can provide coverage to a few kilometers only. The size of the macro cells illuminated by the base stations, where line of sight (LOS) exists, is 1 to 6 km. To provide coverage to customers where LOS is not possible, repeaters or passive reflectors may be used. In this paper we present first results of reflection measurements at 42 GHz, and based on that, simple multipath studies, taking into account the beam width of the antennas of both, transmitter and receiver. Secondly, LOS cochannel and adjacent channel interference are assessed for cellular LMDS networks. As suggested in the CRABS report, the maximal spectral efficiency can be obtained with a dual frequency and polarization reuse plan. This frequency and polarization reuse leads to interference. In this paper we have first calculated the cochannel interference (CCI) and the adjacent channel interference (ACI) due to the frequency/polarization reuse schemes suggested in the CRABS report. The effects of the variation of the half power beam width (HPBW) of the receiver, the time percentage parameter p, and the cell radius on C/I are also reported. In the latter part of the paper we propose a simple interference reduction technique based on re-orientation of the receiver antennas. We have also explored the possibility of using trellis coded modulation (TCM) for reducing interference levels. Initial results have been found to be quite encouraging.
