A leakage-aware Coordinated Scheduling/Coordinated Beamforming (CS/CB) scheme for heterogeneous networks with layered limited feedback is proposed. In particular, all pico cells cooperatively select an optimal beamforming vector for the macro cell within a CoMP cluster so as to minimizing leakage power from the macro cell. Simulations show that the proposed scheme outperforms the conventional non-CoMP scheme with perfect channel state information at teansmitter (CSIT). Furthermore, the feedback amount and scheduler complexity is decreased greatly.
