  The present invention relates to a communication system including a mobile station apparatus, a base station apparatus that manages a macro cell, and a base station apparatus that manages a home cell, a communication system capable of efficiently adjusting interference with a home cell, an interference adjustment method, and The present invention relates to a base station apparatus and a mobile station apparatus that use the communication system.

  Currently, a base station apparatus for a small number of people in a home or office is being studied. A base station device for a small number of people is typically smaller than a normal base station device, and is connected to a core network via a general network line to expand a communication area, improve traffic, or Used to provide user specific services.

  In the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), which is a standardization project, high-speed communication has been realized by adopting OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing) method and flexible scheduling of predetermined frequency and time units called resource blocks. Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (hereinafter referred to as “EUTRA”) has been studied, and further, advanced EUTRA (also referred to as “LTE-Advanced”), which is an advanced version thereof, has been studied.

  A personal-use base station apparatus is called a home base station apparatus, and in particular, a third generation home base station apparatus defined by 3GPP is called a home node B. A home base station apparatus in EUTRA and Advanced EUTRA is referred to as a home eNodeB. The home base station apparatus manages an area (cell) in which the mobile station apparatus can communicate, and the cell is referred to as a home cell. The home cell is also referred to as a femto cell, a pico cell, or a nano cell depending on the size of an area that can communicate with the mobile station apparatus. Further, when the mobile station apparatus can communicate with a certain base station apparatus, the cell of the base station apparatus is a serving cell of the mobile station apparatus, and the cells of the other base station apparatuses are called peripheral cells.

  A plurality of home base station apparatuses can be arranged in an area (macro cell) capable of communicating with a mobile station apparatus managed by the base station apparatus (macro base station apparatus). Therefore, there is a known problem that interference occurs with the home base station device when the mobile station device communicates with the base station device (Non-Patent Document 1).

  As a typical example of interference received by the home base station apparatus, an uplink transmission signal transmitted from a mobile station apparatus (macro mobile station apparatus) communicating with the base station apparatus communicates with the home base station apparatus ( There is interference on the uplink transmission signal of the home mobile station device. A method for adjusting interference by exchanging interference information between base station devices called inter cell interference coordination (ICIC) as a function for reducing interference of uplink transmission signals of mobile station devices Is adopted in 3GPP (Non-Patent Document 2, section 8.3.1).

Before describing embodiments of the present invention, a physical channel and interference adjustment method according to the present invention will be briefly described.
(1) Physical Channel A physical channel (or physical signal) used in EUTRA and Advanced EUTRA will be described. The physical channel may be added or changed in the future in EUTRA and Advanced EUTRA. However, even if the physical channel is changed, the description of each embodiment of the present invention is not affected.

  Synchronization signals are composed of three types of primary synchronization signals and secondary synchronization signals composed of 31 types of codes arranged alternately in the frequency domain. Depending on the combination, 504 cell identifiers (PCI) for identifying the base station apparatus and frame timing for radio synchronization are shown. The mobile station device specifies the cell ID of the synchronization signal received by the cell search.

  A physical broadcast information channel (PBCH; Physical Broadcast Channel) is transmitted for the purpose of notifying control parameters (broadcast information (system information): System information) commonly used by mobile station apparatuses in a cell. Broadcast information that is not notified by the physical broadcast information channel is transmitted by a layer 3 message using the downlink data channel, in which radio resources are notified by the downlink control channel. As broadcast information, a cell global identifier (CGI) indicating an individual cell identifier, a tracking area identifier (TAI) for managing a standby area by paging, and the like are notified.

  The downlink reference signal is a pilot signal transmitted at a predetermined power for each cell. The downlink reference signal is a known signal that is periodically repeated at a frequency / time position based on a predetermined rule. The mobile station apparatus measures the reception quality for each cell by receiving the downlink reference signal. The mobile station apparatus also uses the downlink reference signal as a reference signal for demodulation of the downlink control channel or downlink data channel transmitted simultaneously with the downlink reference signal. As a sequence used for the downlink reference signal, a sequence that can be identified for each cell is used. In addition, although a downlink reference signal may be described as cell-specific RS (Cell-specific reference signals), the use and meaning are the same.

  A downlink control channel (PDCCH; Physical Downlink Control Channel) is transmitted in several OFDM symbols from the beginning of each subframe. Radio resource allocation information according to the scheduling of the base station device and transmission to the mobile station device Used to indicate the amount of power increase / decrease adjustment. The mobile station apparatus receives a downlink control channel before transmitting / receiving a layer 3 message (paging, handover command, etc.) that is downlink data or downlink control data, and when transmitting, the uplink grant, when receiving, the downlink grant It is necessary to acquire radio resource allocation information called

  A downlink data channel (PDSCH: Physical Downlink Shared Channel) is used to notify paging and broadcast information as a layer 3 message that is downlink control data in addition to downlink data. The radio resource allocation information of the downlink data channel is indicated by the downlink control channel.

  An uplink data channel (PUSCH) mainly transmits uplink data and uplink control data, and can also include control data such as downlink reception quality and ACK / NACK. Similarly to the downlink, the radio resource allocation information of the uplink data channel is indicated by the downlink control channel.

  A random access channel (PRACH) is a channel used for notifying a preamble sequence and has a guard time. The random access channel is used as an access procedure to the base station apparatus by an asynchronous mobile station apparatus whose uplink transmission timing is not synchronized with the base station apparatus, and is used for adjusting a radio resource request and uplink transmission timing. Since other physical channels are not related to each embodiment of the present invention, detailed description thereof is omitted.

(2) Interference adjustment method There are two interference adjustment methods. The first is (a1) dividing the system bandwidth into the frequency bandwidth of the resource block which is the minimum unit of scheduling, (a2) measuring the amount of interference received by the base station apparatus for each frequency bandwidth of the resource block, (A3) A method of generating a table (interference table) indicating the amount of interference in the entire system frequency band for each frequency bandwidth of the resource block from the measurement result, and (a4) transmitting the created table to neighboring base station devices It is.

  The first interference adjustment method is used for the purpose of having a base station apparatus already affected by interference reduce the influence of neighboring base station apparatuses.

  In the second interference adjustment method, (b1) the system bandwidth is divided into the frequency bandwidths of resource blocks that are the minimum unit of scheduling, and (b2) the resource corresponding to the resource block on which the mobile station device at the cell edge is scheduled In this method, a table (interference table) in which identification bits are set for each frequency bandwidth of the block is generated, and (b3) the created table is transmitted to a neighboring base station apparatus that requires interference adjustment.

  The second interference adjustment method is used for the purpose of having a base station apparatus that has predicted in advance the occurrence of interference avoid the influence of surrounding base station apparatuses.

  In consideration of the above matters, preferred embodiments of the present invention will be described below in detail with reference to the drawings. Note that the home base station apparatus can also restrict access other than an emergency call or a user (mobile station apparatus) registered in advance. A home cell of a home base station device that restricts access by users other than registered users is called a CSG (Closed Subscriber Group) cell.

Network information can specify the address of each device on the network such as tracking area identifier (TAI), cell global identifier (CGI), cell identifier (PCI), network color code, Internet protocol address (IP address), etc. Consists of information. The peripheral information management unit 212 provides network information to the network signal processing unit 211 as necessary. The network signal processing unit 211 and the peripheral information management unit 212 are managed by an upper layer. In FIG. 3, the other constituent elements of the base station apparatus 200 are omitted because they are not related to the present embodiment.

  FIG. 4 is an example of a flowchart illustrating the interference adjustment method according to the first embodiment of the present invention. The mobile station apparatus in the figure may have the same configuration as the mobile station apparatus 100 in FIG. Also, the base station apparatus A in the figure and the home base station apparatus A or the home base station apparatus B may differ in transmission power, frequency bandwidth, control information to be held, etc., but the base station apparatus 200 in FIG. The same configuration may be used.

  The mobile station device is communicating with the base station device A. Further, in the macro cell of the base station apparatus A, a home base station apparatus A and a home base station apparatus B are arranged. The base station device A is connected to the home base station device A and the home base station device B via a control station device or a gateway device. In FIG. 4, the base station apparatus A has notified the mobile station apparatus of the measurement configuration necessary for the measurement of the neighboring cell, and the mobile station apparatus starts from the state of measuring the neighboring cell. . The measurement setting is transmitted by being included in the RRC message.

  Base station apparatus A, home base station apparatus A, and home base station apparatus B are operated in the same frequency band. The home cell of the home base station apparatus A is assigned PCI # 1 as the cell identifier and CGI # A as the cell global identifier, and the home cell of the home base station apparatus B is PCI # 1, the cell global identifier. As CGI # B. It is assumed that the mobile station apparatus can measure the home base station apparatus A but cannot measure the home base station apparatus B.

  At this time, the mobile station apparatus transmits an RRC message (measurement report 1) including a measurement result of reception quality of neighboring cells to the base station apparatus A periodically or in an event based on the setting of the base station apparatus A (step S10). The measurement report 1 includes at least PCI # 1, which is the cell identifier of the home base station apparatus A, as a measured peripheral cell, and the measurement result. In addition, when the home cell of the home base station device A is a CSG cell and the mobile station device can identify that the access of the mobile station device is permitted, the mobile station device is the CSG cell of the own station. The CSG identification information (CSG identifier or the like) indicating the presence is set and the measurement report 1 is transmitted.

  The base station apparatus A that has received the measurement report 1 from the mobile station apparatus determines the necessity of interference adjustment in step S11, and sets the transmission destination of a control message for interference adjustment when interference adjustment is required. The additional information request determination process is performed to determine whether or not additional information is necessary. When the base station apparatus A determines that additional information is necessary in the additional information request determination, the base station apparatus A transmits an additional information request message to the mobile station apparatus (step S12). The additional information request message includes at least a cell identifier (PCI # 1 in FIG. 4) of a cell that requires additional information.

  The mobile station apparatus that has received the additional information request message acquires necessary additional information from the home base station apparatus A (step S13). Here, as additional information acquired and reported by the mobile station device, (a) a cell global identifier (CGI # A) of the home base station device A, (b) a tracking area identifier (TAI) of the home base station device A, (C) Cell identifiers of a plurality of neighboring cells having a certain reception quality or higher can be considered.

  The information (a) is obtained from the broadcast information of the home base station apparatus A, and is suitable for identifying cells to which the same cell identifier is assigned. The information of (b) is acquired from the broadcast information of the home base station apparatus A, and is suitable when the home cells have different TAIs. The mobile station apparatus may set the information of (a) and (b). The information of (a) and (b) may require a reception interruption time (gap) for acquisition. When a gap is necessary, the mobile station apparatus temporarily interrupts communication with the base station apparatus A to acquire additional information, and tries to acquire additional information in the gap section. After the mobile station device receives the additional information request message from the base station device A, the mobile station device autonomously generates a gap and starts measurement. The information in (c) does not require gap generation.

  After acquiring additional information from the home base station apparatus A, the mobile station apparatus transmits an RRC message (measurement report 2) including the measurement result to the base station apparatus A again (step S14). The measurement report 2 includes the acquired additional information of the home base station apparatus A in addition to the cell identification information (PCI # 1) of the home base station apparatus A. In addition, if the mobile station device can identify from the received additional information that the home cell of the home base station device A is a CSG cell and the access to the mobile station device is permitted, the mobile station device Identification information (CSG identification information) indicating that the station is a CSG cell of the station is included in the measurement report 2.

  Receiving the measurement report 2 from the mobile station apparatus, the base station apparatus A performs control target base station apparatus determination, and determines a home base station apparatus that performs interference adjustment (step S15). The control target base station apparatus determination method is performed based on the additional information reported in the measurement report 2. In the case of FIG. 4, the base station apparatus A identifies the home base station apparatus A as a control target home base station apparatus based on the measurement report 2. Then, the base station apparatus A transmits the cell global identifier (CGI # A) of the home base station apparatus A to the control message (interference information) for interference adjustment to indicate that the object of interference adjustment is the home base station apparatus A. ) And transmitted to the control station apparatus or gateway apparatus (step S16). In addition, when home base station apparatus A permits access of the mobile station apparatus based on the CSG identification information, interference adjustment is unnecessary because it is sufficient to perform handover.

  In the base station apparatus A, at least one mobile station apparatus is located around the home base station apparatus A, and the frequency band in which the uplink transmission signal from the mobile station apparatus interferes with the home base station apparatus A Is set as interference information. That is, the base station apparatus A generates an interference table in which identification bits indicating uplink resource blocks assigned to mobile station apparatuses located in the vicinity of the home base station apparatus A are set as interference information. The base station apparatus A generates a control message (interference information) including the interference table and at least the cell global identifier (CGI # A) of the home base station apparatus A. The base station apparatus A may include the cell global identifier and tracking area identifier of the base station apparatus A in the control message (interference information) in order to optimize the network path.

  The control station apparatus or the gateway apparatus transfers the received interference information to the home base station apparatus A that is the transmission destination (step S17). The home base station apparatus A that has received the interference information appropriately adjusts interference based on the interference information (step S18). The base station apparatus A may be configured to be able to transmit interference information directly to the home base station apparatus A without going through the control station apparatus or the gateway apparatus. The home base station apparatus A that has received the interference information typically performs interference adjustment by performing scheduling that avoids the allocated uplink resource blocks indicated by the interference table included in the interference information. Realize.

  In addition, when the mobile station apparatus needs to generate a gap for acquiring additional information and the additional information cannot be received from the home base station apparatus A within a certain time, the additional information is received. The base station apparatus A is notified of the failure. Whether the reception has failed or not is determined as a failure when a predetermined time has elapsed since the mobile station apparatus received the additional information request message. This predetermined time may be specified for each mobile station apparatus in the additional information request message.

  Details of the additional information request determination of the base station apparatus A in step S11 of FIG. 4 will be described with reference to FIG.

  The base station apparatus A receives the measurement report 1 that is an RRC message from the mobile station apparatus (step S20). If the reported neighboring cell includes a home cell, it is confirmed whether CSG identification information indicating that the mobile station apparatus is accessible is set (step S21). When the CSG identification information is set (Yes in Step S21), the base station apparatus A determines that interference adjustment is unnecessary (Step S27), and ends the process.

  If the CSG identification information is not set (No in step S21), the reception quality of the home cell is compared with a threshold value indicating a reference that requires interference adjustment (step S22). As a result of the comparison, when the reception quality of the home cell is equal to or higher than the threshold (Yes in Step S22), the base station apparatus A determines that interference adjustment is necessary (Step S23). On the other hand, when it is less than the threshold (No in step S22), the base station apparatus A determines that interference adjustment is unnecessary (step S27), and ends the process.

  If interference adjustment is necessary, the base station apparatus A subsequently determines whether or not the home cell can be specified (step S24). When the home cell can be specified (Yes in step S24), the base station apparatus A determines that no additional information is required (step S25), and ends the process. When the home cell cannot be specified because there are a plurality of home cells to which the same cell identifier is assigned in the macro cell (No in step S24), the base station apparatus A determines that additional information is necessary. (Step S26), and the process ends.

  As described above, in the first embodiment, the base station apparatus 200 is arranged in the vicinity of the mobile station apparatus 100 with respect to the mobile station apparatus 100 in order to notify the home base station apparatus of interference to be given in the future as interference adjustment. Request additional information to identify the home base station device being used. The mobile station apparatus 100 acquires additional information for specifying the home base station apparatus, and transmits the additional information to the base station apparatus 200. The base station apparatus 200 can generate interference information related to interference adjustment based on the received additional information. By using this control, base station apparatus 200 can perform appropriate interference adjustment even when there are a plurality of cells having the same cell identifier.

  As described above, the base station apparatus 200 requests the mobile station apparatus 100 for additional information necessary for performing interference adjustment for interference that the home base station apparatus will receive in the future, and the additional information acquired by the mobile station apparatus 100 By using the information, interference adjustment can be appropriately performed on another base station apparatus 200 (home base station apparatus) that receives interference. Thus, when base station apparatus 200 performs appropriate interference adjustment, it is possible to suppress quality degradation of the uplink transmission signal of mobile station apparatus 100 caused by interference. In addition, the throughput of the mobile station device 100 is improved and the number of retransmissions is reduced, so that power consumption is reduced.

<Third Embodiment>
A third embodiment of the present invention will be described below. In this embodiment, a condition for a base station device that includes a home base station device in its own macro cell to receive additional information necessary for specifying a mobile station device located in the vicinity of the home base station device is set in advance. The present invention relates to a method in which a mobile station apparatus that is set and satisfies a condition autonomously receives additional information from a home base station and reports the received additional information to the base station apparatus. The configuration of the communication system according to the present embodiment may be the same as that shown in FIG.

  FIG. 8 is an example of a flowchart illustrating the interference adjustment method of the third embodiment of the present invention. The mobile station apparatus in the figure may have the same configuration as the mobile station apparatus 100 in FIG. Also, the base station apparatus A in the figure and the home base station apparatus A or the home base station apparatus B may differ in transmission power, frequency bandwidth, control information to be held, etc., but the base station apparatus 200 in FIG. The same configuration may be used.

  The mobile station device is communicating with the base station device A. Further, in the macro cell of the base station apparatus A, a home base station apparatus A and a home base station apparatus B are arranged. Similarly to FIG. 4, the base station apparatus A is connected to the home base station apparatus A and the home base station apparatus B via a control station apparatus or a gateway apparatus (not shown).

  Base station apparatus A transmits an additional information reception condition to the mobile station apparatus using the RRC message. The additional information reception condition is preferably included in the broadcast information or the measurement setting for each mobile station device. The base station apparatus A transmits a cell identifier (PCI # 1 in FIG. 8) of the home cell that requires at least additional information as additional information reception conditions (step S50). Further, the base station apparatus A can include (1) a plurality of cell identifiers and (2) a threshold value indicating the start of reception of additional information as necessary.

  After receiving the additional information reception condition from the base station apparatus A, the mobile station apparatus performs additional information acquisition determination for determining whether or not necessary additional information is received from the home cell (step S51). When it is determined that additional information is necessary, the mobile station apparatus receives necessary additional information from the home base station apparatus A (step S52). Here, the additional information that is acquired and reported by the mobile station apparatus uses the same information as described in the first embodiment. After acquiring additional information from the home base station apparatus A, the mobile station apparatus transmits an RRC message (measurement report) including a measurement result to the base station apparatus A (step S53).

  The measurement report includes at least the acquired additional information of the home base station apparatus A in addition to the cell identification information (PCI # 1) of the home base station apparatus A.

Do.

  Details of the mobile station apparatus additional information acquisition determination in step S51 of FIG. 8 will be described with reference to FIG.

  When the mobile station apparatus receives the additional information reception condition from the base station apparatus A, the mobile station apparatus sets a condition for starting reception of the additional information in advance, and determines whether or not the condition is satisfied by measuring neighboring cells. Based on the result (step S60). If the condition is not satisfied, the mobile station apparatus determines that additional information is not necessary (step S61), and ends the process. On the other hand, if the condition is satisfied, the mobile station apparatus determines that additional information is necessary, receives the additional information from the home cell (step S62), and ends the process.

  Hereinafter, an example of determining whether or not the mobile station apparatus satisfies the condition in step S60 is shown for each condition set by the base station apparatus A. For example, when the mobile station apparatus is notified of only the cell identifier (PCI # 1) of the home cell that needs additional information and detects the cell identifier (PCI # 1) of the home cell, it is necessary. It is determined that additional information is received from the home cell of PCI # 1. Further, when a threshold value indicating the start of reception of additional information is included, the mobile station apparatus is necessary when the reception quality of the PCI # 1 home cell exceeds the threshold value (that is, when the mobile station approaches the home cell). It is determined that additional information is received from the home cell.

  In addition, when a plurality of cell identifiers other than the cell identifier (PCI # 1) of the home cell requiring additional information are included, the mobile station apparatus is notified of the cell identifier (PCI # 1) of the home cell. When all of the home cells having a plurality of cell identifiers are detected, it is determined that necessary additional information is received from the home cell of PCI # 1.

  In this way, the base station apparatus A utilizes the fact that the cell identifiers of neighboring cells that can be measured in the vicinity of the home cell do not change frequently because the cell radius of the home cell is relatively small, By including, the detection accuracy of the home base station apparatus near the mobile station apparatus can be increased.

When the reception quality of the home cells of the plurality of cell identifiers notified as above all exceed the threshold value, it is determined that necessary additional information is received from the home cell of PCI # 1. Note that a plurality of home cell identifiers that require additional information may be specified simultaneously instead of one, and a range of home cell cell identifiers (for example, PCI # n to PCI # m) is specified. It may be.

  As described above, in the third embodiment, the mobile station device 100 sends a measurement report to the base station device 200 twice (measurement report 1 (step S10) and measurement report 2 (step S14) in FIG. 4). There is no need to transmit, and when the condition indicating that additional information received in advance from the base station apparatus 200 is required, the additional information is acquired autonomously, and additional information is added to one measurement report. To the base station apparatus 200. The base station apparatus 200 can perform interference adjustment based on the received additional information. By using this control, signaling from the base station apparatus 200 to the mobile station apparatus 100 can be reduced.

  As described above, base station apparatus 200 transmits in advance a condition for mobile station apparatus 100 to autonomously receive and report additional information necessary for performing interference adjustment with respect to the home base station apparatus. To do. Thus, base station apparatus 200 transmits a condition that requires additional information to mobile station apparatus 100 in advance, so that signaling between base station apparatus 200 and mobile station apparatus 100 can be reduced. In addition, the processing time until the interference adjustment is started can be shortened. In addition, since no gap generation is required, communication is not interrupted in the gap section, and communication quality is improved.

When the home base station device starts communication with the home mobile station device (or when emergency call communication is started with any mobile station device), the home base station device becomes active with respect to the surrounding base station devices. This is notified using a control message between base station apparatuses. On the other hand, when communication between the mobile station device and the home mobile station device is terminated due to an end call or a handover, the control between the base station devices is performed when the own station is in an idle state with respect to the surrounding base station devices Notify using a message.

That is, the base station apparatus determines that interference adjustment is necessary when the home base station apparatus is in an active state and the mobile station apparatus is located in the vicinity of the home base station apparatus. When the control station apparatus or the gateway apparatus manages the status information of the home base station apparatus, the control station apparatus or the gateway apparatus is in the idle state with a control message (interference information) for interference adjustment transmitted by the base station apparatus. It is also possible to perform control not to transfer to the base station apparatus.
