Abstract

In this correspondence, we consider the problem of scheduling, in closed-loop multiuser MIMO systems, a large set of users with different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements, supplied by a single base station (BS) by means of Zero-Forcing Beamforming (ZFBF). We provide a power-and-bandwidth efficient feedback scheme in which only ZFBF-optimal users feedback their CSI, thereby reducing the number of required feedbacks and the computational burden of exhaustive search for best users at the BS. Afterwards, we show that conventional sumcapacity maximizing scheduling policies fall short to meet the requisites of delay-sensitive applications, and we provide appropriate scheduling scheme for such-constrained users. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed scheduling approach successfully meets both average and instantaneous delay constraints of delaysensitive applications.
