Precoding, scheduling and link adaptation in mobile interactive multibeam satellite systems
Rights accessOpen Access
This paper deals with the problem of precoding, scheduling and link adaptation in next generation mobile interactive multibeam satellite systems. In contrast to the fixed satellite services, when the user terminals move across the coverage area, additional challenges appear. Due to the time varying channel, the gateway has only access to a delayed version of the channel state information (CSI) which can eventually limit the overall system performance. However, in contrast to general multiuser multipleinput- multiple-output terrestrial systems, the CSI degradation in multibeam mobile applications has a very limited impact for typical fading channel and system assumptions. Under realistic conditions, the numerical results show that precoding can offer an attractive gain in the system throughput compared to conservative frequency reuse allocations.
