ABSTRACT

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is a key technology for the 5th Generation wireless communication systems. Joint spatial division and multiplexing (JSDM) method can reduce the cost of downlink training and feedback for CSIT of frequency-division duplexing (FDD) system. In this paper, we studied user grouping and user scheduling problems based on JSDM, and proposed an improved greedy user scheduling algorithm with lower complexity. Numerical results show that the user grouping and scheduling based on the proposed improved algorithm have much lower computational complexity while resulting in only a slight loss in system performance.
