  Next, the first to fifth embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings. In the description of the drawings in the following first to fifth embodiments, the same or similar parts are denoted by the same or similar reference numerals.

[First Embodiment]
In the first embodiment, (1) schematic configuration of radio communication system, (2) detailed configuration of radio communication system, (3) signal synthesis processing example, (4) operation of radio communication system, (5) action and effect Will be described.

(1) Schematic Configuration of Radio Communication System FIG. 1 is an overall schematic configuration diagram of a radio communication system 10A according to the first embodiment.

  As illustrated in FIG. 1, the radio communication system 10 </ b> A includes a radio base station 11, a radio base station 12, a radio terminal 21, and a radio terminal 22. Hereinafter, communication in the downlink direction (direction from the radio base station to the radio terminal) will be described.

  The radio base station 11 (first radio base station) forms a cell C1 (first communication area) which is a communication area capable of communicating with an arbitrary radio terminal. The wireless terminal 21 is located in the cell C <b> 1 and performs wireless communication with the wireless base station 11 using the communication channel assigned from the wireless base station 11. Many radio terminals other than the radio terminal 21 may be located in the cell C1.

  The radio base station 12 (second radio base station) forms a cell C2 (second communication area) which is a communication area capable of communicating with an arbitrary radio terminal. The radio terminal 22 is located in the cell C <b> 2 and performs radio communication with the radio base station 12 using the communication channel assigned by the radio base station 12. Many radio terminals other than the radio terminal 22 may be located in the cell C2.

  The radio base station 11 and the radio base station 12 are connected to a backbone network 100 configured as a wired network, for example. In addition, the cell C1 formed by the radio base station 11 and the cell C2 formed by the radio base station 12 are so-called adjacent cells that partially overlap each other. In the example of FIG. 1, the wireless terminal 21 and the wireless terminal 22 are located in an overlapping portion between the cell C1 and the cell C2.

  The communication channel assigned to the wireless terminal 21 by the wireless base station 11 and the communication channel assigned to the wireless terminal 22 by the wireless base station 12 are the same communication channel, that is, the same frequency f0 and the same time slot. Since the wireless terminal 21 and the wireless terminal 22 are located in the overlapping portion between the cell C1 and the cell C2, the influence of interference is large.

  Specifically, the signal S transmitted from the radio base station 11 to the radio terminal 21 is received not only by the radio terminal 21 but also by the radio terminal 22. The signal I transmitted from the wireless base station 12 to the wireless terminal 22 is received not only by the wireless terminal 22 but also by the wireless terminal 21.

Further, the signal I received by the wireless terminal 21 from the wireless base station 12 is appropriately referred to as an “interference signal”.

(2.1) Configuration of Radio Base Station FIG. 2A is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the radio base station 11.

  As illustrated in FIG. 2A, the radio base station 11 includes a radio transmission unit 110 and a transmission signal generation unit 111. The transmission signal generation unit 111 generates a signal S for the wireless terminal 21. The wireless transmission unit 110 configures a first wireless transmission device that transmits the signal S generated by the transmission signal generation unit 111.

  The wireless transmission unit 110 includes a delay signal generation unit 112, a delay information holding unit 113, a delay information notification unit 114, a transmission unit 115, and an antenna 116.

  The delay signal generation unit 112 generates a delay signal Sdelay obtained by delaying the signal S according to the delay information Sinfo held by the delay information holding unit 113. The delayed signal generator 112 constitutes a delayed desired signal generator that generates a delayed desired signal (delayed signal Sdelay) obtained by delaying the desired signal (signal S).

  The delay information Sinfo includes a delay time τ1 (see FIG. 4A) of the delay signal Sdelay with respect to the signal S. The delay information Sinfo may include amplitude or phase information of the delay signal Sdelay in addition to the delay time τ1. The delay information holding unit 113 holds the delay information Sinfo in advance. In the first embodiment, the delay signal generation unit 112 applies the same delay information Sinfo to all wireless terminals located in the cell C1.

  The delay information notification unit 114 notifies the wireless terminal 21 of the delay information Sinfo held by the delay information holding unit 113. In the first embodiment, the delay information notification unit 114 constitutes a desired signal information notification unit that notifies delay desired signal information (delay information Sinfo).

  Specifically, the delay information notification unit 114 notifies the wireless terminal 21 of the delay information Sinfo via the transmission unit 115 at the time of negotiation executed when communication with the wireless terminal 21 is started. Alternatively, the delay information notification unit 114 notifies the wireless terminal 21 of the delay information Sinfo by periodically broadcasting (broadcasting) the delay information Sinfo into the cell C1 via the transmission unit 115.

  An antenna 116 is connected to the transmission unit 115. The transmission unit 115 transmits the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay to the wireless terminal 21 using the communication channel (frequency f0) described above. Transmitter 115 constitutes a desired signal transmitter that transmits a desired signal (signal S) and a delayed desired signal (delayed signal Sdelay).

  When transmitting the delay information Sinfo by notification, the transmission unit 115 transmits the delay information Sinfo using a notification channel that is a communication channel different from the communication channel used for transmitting the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay, for example.

  Next, the configuration of the radio base station 12 will be described. FIG. 2B is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the radio base station 12. Note that the radio base station 12 is configured in the same manner as the radio base station 11, and therefore, differences from the radio base station 11 will be mainly described.

  The radio base station 12 includes a radio transmission unit 120 and a transmission signal generation unit 121. The transmission signal generator 121 generates a signal I for the wireless terminal 22.

  The wireless transmission unit 120 includes a delay signal generation unit 122, a delay information holding unit 123, a delay information notification unit 124, a transmission unit 125, and an antenna 126.

  The delay signal generation unit 122 generates a delay signal Idelay that is a signal obtained by delaying the signal I in accordance with the delay information Iinfo held by the delay information holding unit 123. The delay information Iinfo includes a delay time τ2 (see FIG. 4A) of the delay signal Idelay with respect to the signal I. The delay time τ2 is different in time length from the delay time τ1. Note that the delay information Iinfo may include information on the amplitude or phase of the delay signal Idelay in addition to the delay time τ2.

  The delay information holding unit 123 holds delay information Iinfo in advance. In the first embodiment, the delay signal generation unit 122 applies the same delay information Iinfo to all wireless terminals located in the cell C2.

  The delay information notification unit 124 notifies the wireless terminal 22 of the delay information Iinfo held by the delay information holding unit 123. Specifically, the delay information notification unit 124 notifies the wireless terminal 22 of the delay information Iinfo via the transmission unit 125 at the time of negotiation executed at the start of communication with the wireless terminal 22. Alternatively, the delay information notification unit 124 notifies the wireless terminal 22 of the delay information Iinfo by periodically broadcasting (broadcasting) the delay information Iinfo into the cell C2 via the transmission unit 125.

  An antenna 126 is connected to the transmission unit 125. The transmission unit 125 transmits the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay to the wireless terminal 22 using the communication channel (frequency f0) described above. In addition, when transmitting the delay information Iinfo by notification, the transmission unit 125 transmits the delay information Sinfo using a notification channel different from the communication channel used for transmitting the signal I and the delay signal Idelay, for example.

(2.2) Configuration of Radio Terminal FIG. 3A is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the radio terminal 21.

  As illustrated in FIG. 3A, the radio terminal 21 includes a radio reception unit 210 that receives the signal S from the radio base station 11 and receives the signal I from the radio base station 12. The wireless reception unit 210 constitutes a wireless reception device that receives a desired signal (signal S) and an interference signal (signal I).

  The wireless reception unit 210 includes an antenna 211, a reception unit 212, a delay information acquisition unit 213, and a signal synthesis unit 214.

  The antenna 211 is connected to the receiving unit 212. The delay information acquisition unit 213 acquires the delay information Sinfo notified from the radio transmission unit 110 of the radio base station 11 via the reception unit 212. The delay information acquisition unit 213 constitutes an information acquisition unit that acquires delay desired signal information (delay information Sinfo).

  The receiving unit 212 constitutes a signal receiving unit that receives the signal S, the signal I, the delayed signal Sdelay, and the delayed signal Idelay. Based on the delay information Sinfo acquired by the delay information acquisition unit 213, the signal synthesis unit 214 matches the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay received by the reception unit 212 on the time axis, and the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay are the same. Synthesize with phase. Details of such synthesis processing will be described later.

  Next, the configuration of the wireless terminal 22 will be described. FIG. 3B is a functional block diagram showing the configuration of the wireless terminal 22. Since the wireless terminal 22 is configured in the same manner as the wireless terminal 21, differences from the wireless terminal 21 will be mainly described.

  As illustrated in FIG. 3B, the radio terminal 22 includes a radio reception unit 220 that receives the signal S from the radio base station 11 and receives the signal I from the radio base station 12.

  The wireless reception unit 220 includes an antenna 221, a reception unit 222, a delay information acquisition unit 223, and a signal synthesis unit 224.

  The antenna 221 is connected to the receiving unit 222. The delay information acquisition unit 223 acquires the delay information Iinfo notified from the radio transmission unit 120 of the radio base station 12 via the reception unit 222.

  The receiving unit 222 receives the signal S, the signal I, the delayed signal Sdelay, and the delayed signal Idelay. Based on the delay information Iinfo acquired by the delay information acquisition unit 223, the signal synthesis unit 224 matches the signal I and the delay signal Idelay received by the reception unit 222 on the time axis, and the signal I and the delay signal Idelay are the same. Synthesize with phase.

(3) Signal Synthesis Process Example Next, an example of the signal synthesis process executed by the signal synthesis unit 214 of the wireless terminal 21 will be described with reference to FIG.

  As shown in FIG. 4A, the wireless transmission unit 110 of the wireless base station 11 transmits a delay signal Sdelay obtained by delaying the signal S by a delay time τ1 in addition to the signal S. On the other hand, the radio transmission unit 120 of the radio base station 12 transmits a delay signal Idelay obtained by delaying the signal I by the delay time τ2 in addition to the signal I.

  Since each of the signal S, the delayed signal Sdelay, the signal I, and the delayed signal Idelay is transmitted through the same communication channel, the reception unit 212 of the wireless terminal 21 receives the signal S, the delay, as illustrated in FIG. A reception signal in which the signal Sdelay, the signal I, and the delay signal Idelay are mixed is output to the signal synthesis unit 214.

  The signal synthesis unit 214 specifies the delay time τ1 from the delay information Sinfo acquired by the delay information acquisition unit 213, and detects the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay according to the delay time τ1. Here, since the delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2 are set to different time lengths, the signal synthesis unit 214 can distinguish the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay from the signal I and the delay signal Idelay.

  Then, the signal synthesis unit 214 separates the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay from the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay, and makes the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay coincide on the time axis. At this time, since the delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2 are set to different time lengths, the signal I and the delay signal Idelay do not match.

  In the example of FIG. 4A, the delay time τ2 is longer than the delay time τ1. The delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2 are set to a relatively long time in consideration of the propagation delay difference and the phase rotation in the radio propagation path.

  In this way, the signal synthesizer 214 synthesizes the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay with the same phase, so that the received power of the delayed signal Sdelay is added to the signal S as shown in FIG. On the other hand, the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay are inconsistent on the time axis, and when the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay are synthesized in the same phase, the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay are not synthesized. That is, compared with the received power of the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay, the received power of the combined signal S is significantly increased, and the SIR is improved.

  Note that the same processing is executed in the signal synthesis unit 224 of the wireless terminal 22, but the signal synthesis unit 224 synthesizes the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay in the same phase.

(4) Operation of Radio Communication System Next, the operation of the radio communication system 10A will be described in the order of (4.1) operation of the radio base station and (4.2) operation of the radio terminal.

  In step S102, the delay signal generation unit 112 generates a delay signal Sdelay obtained by delaying the signal S in accordance with the delay information Sinfo held by the delay information holding unit 113.

  In step S <b> 103, the delay information notification unit 114 notifies the wireless terminal 21 of the delay information Sinfo held by the delay information holding unit 113. Note that the process of step S103 may be executed before step S102 or before step S101.

  In step S104, the transmission unit 115 transmits the signal S generated by the transmission signal generation unit 111 and the delayed signal Sdelay generated by the delay signal generation unit 112 to the wireless terminal 21 using the communication channel (frequency f0). .

  In step S <b> 201, the delay information acquisition unit 213 acquires the delay information Sinfo notified from the radio base station 11 via the reception unit 212.

  In step S202, the reception unit 212 receives the signal S and the delayed signal Sdelay from the radio base station 11, and receives the signal I and the delayed signal Idelay from the radio base station 12.

  In step S203, the signal synthesis unit 214 matches the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay received by the reception unit 212 on the time axis based on the delay information Sinfo acquired by the delay information acquisition unit 213, as well as the signal S and the delay. The signal Sdelay is synthesized with the same phase.

(5) Operation and Effect As described above, according to the first embodiment, the radio terminal 21 performs in-phase synthesis of the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay based on the delay information Sinfo notified from the radio base station 11. Can improve the SIR. For this reason, the communication channel (frequency f0) of the same frequency can be allocated to the wireless terminal 21 between adjacent cells (cell C1 and cell C2), and the utilization efficiency of wireless communication resources, specifically, the frequency utilization efficiency can be improved. Can be improved.

  According to the first embodiment, the radio terminal 22 can improve the SIR by performing in-phase synthesis of the signal I and the delay signal Idelay based on the delay information Iinfo notified from the radio base station 12. Therefore, a communication channel (frequency f0) having the same frequency can be assigned to the radio terminal 22 between adjacent cells (cell C1 and cell C2), and frequency use efficiency can be improved.

  In the first modification of the first embodiment, the radio base station 11 and the radio base station 12 notify the identification information for identifying the delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2 without directly reporting the delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2. To do. Then, the wireless terminal 21 obtains the delay time τ1 from the identification information notified from the wireless base station 11. The wireless terminal 22 obtains the delay time τ 2 from the identification information notified from the wireless base station 12.

  FIG. 7 is a block diagram illustrating configurations of the wireless terminal 21 and the wireless terminal 22 according to the first modification.

  However, this delay time is not limited to being included in the delay information Sinfo and the delay information Iinfo, and information indicating the amplitude or phase of the delay signal Sdelay and the delay signal Idelay may be included in the delay information Sinfo and the delay information Iinfo.

  In the second modification of the first embodiment, when the delay time τ1 and the delay time τ2 are set to the same time length, and the amplitude or phase of the delay signal Sdelay and the delay signal Idelay are different, FIG. This will be described with reference to FIG. However, overlapping description of operations similar to those in the first embodiment is omitted.

  In the radio base station 11 shown in FIG. 2A, the delay information holding unit 113 preliminarily uses the amplitude ratio between the signal S and the delay signal Sdelay or the phase rotation amount of the delay signal Sdelay from the signal S as the delay information Sinfo.

Also, the delay information notification unit 124 of the radio base station 12 notifies only the amplitude or phase information of the delay signal Idelay as the delay information Iinfo without notifying the delay time τ2.
