Talk Abstract:
Interference Alignment is a new and exciting technique that promises tremendous throughput gains for wireless systems. For a 50 user system, it can improve the throughput by 2400% (25 times) that of current schemes. This seems almost too good to be true. In this talk, we cover both the theory and the practical implementation aspects of interference alignment. We show that alignment can be practically implemented even without channel state information, and a substantial fraction of the theoretical gains can be realized in real-time systems.
