Abstract Coordinated multi-point (CoMP) is known to be one of the key technologies for long-term evolution (LTE)-advanced systems. CoMP technology can improve system capacity and the quality of wireless communication services for users in LTE networks. However, in practice, the actual performance of CoMP technology is limited by the switching capacity of the backhaul network among distributed base stations as well as its latencies.» Read the summary
