A system and method for backhaul based explicit sounding feedback of 802.11 ap to ap channel state information (csi) so that inter ap interference can be reduced and multiple aps transmissions that can occur simultaneously on the same radio channel. A modification may be made to aps such that they can accurately measure the csi between them that in turn enables their respective beamformer to create pattern nulls toward each other while simultaneously developing pattern enhancements toward their intended station.

Multiple users cooperative communication method, and related device and system


The present invention discloses a multiple users cooperative communication (mucc) method and system. The main idea of the present invention is as follows: through multiple users cooperative communication between aps, data to be sent to a ue by an enb may be sent to a support ap at first, and then the support ap sends the data to the ue; and when the support ap is in a poor network environment, the enb may send the data to other aps near the support ap, and finally forward the data to the support ap through one or more times of forwarding between other aps.
