Differential Signaling of Scheduling Information in Wireless Multiple Access Systems

This paper considers the control signaling on the downlink in wireless multiple access systems, with focus on the part of the control signaling that carries information on the user's time/frequency scheduling assignments. A new idea is presented to reduce the amount of channel resources needed for this signaling. The idea is to exploit the fact that provided that only one single user is scheduled on each channel resource, then the different users' scheduling assignments are correlated. This correlation can be exploited by encoding the scheduling information differentially. In order to recover the scheduling information, a user must then decode the scheduling information of some of the others. This is possible, because on the downlink, all users can hear the transmission by the base station so that users with a high SNR may decode the control signaling sent to users with a lower SNR. We present a practical scheme to exploit this idea. Both analytical analysis and numerical examples illustrate that the proposed technique can provide a substantial reduction in signaling traffic.
