Abstract

See full text

Techniques for managing interference in a wireless network are described. A base station may receive enhanced pilot measurement reports from user equipments (UEs) and may make an interference management decision based on the received reports. The base station may select a serving base station for a UE based on an enhanced pilot measurement report received from the UE. The base station may determine resources with a low target interference level at a neighbor base station and may avoid scheduling a UE for uplink transmission on the resources. The base station may also determine whether to reserve resources for a neighbor base station based on data performance of the neighbor base station, whether the neighbor base station observes high interference from UEs served by the base station, or whether UEs served by the neighbor base station observe high interference from the base station, which may be determined based on the enhanced pilot measurement reports.
