This paper presents an overview of radio interface technologies for cooperative transmission in 3GPP LTE-Advanced, i.e., coordinated multi-point (CoMP) transmission, enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) for heterogeneous deployments, and relay transmission techniques. This paper covers not only the technical components in the 3GPP specifications that have already been released, but also those that were discussed in the Study Item phase of LTE-Advanced, and those that are currently being discussed in 3GPP for potential specification in future LTE releases.
