Users located on the cell edge suffer from low data rates due to interference and poor reception. The Coordinated Multipoint technology targets this problem but it imposes over-head on the network, which can result in degradation of the Quality of Service. The Direct CSI feedback to Elected Coordina-tion station architecture minimizes such overhead, resulting in improved data rates. Here, we analyze the performance of DCEC, Centralized, and Distributed control architectures for LTE-Advanced mobile networks in urban areas showing the ad-vantages of the approach.
