We study the achievable rates by a single user in multibeam satellite scenarios. We show alternatives to the conventional symbol-by-symbol detection applied at user terminals. Single user detection is known to suffer from strong degradation when the terminal is located near the edge of the coverage area, and when aggressive frequency reuse is adopted. For this reason, we consider multiuser detection, and take into account the strongest interfering signal. Moreover, we analyze a different transmission strategy, where the signals from two adjacent beams jointly serve two users in a time division multiplexing fashion. We describe an information-theoretic framework to compare different transmission/detection strategies by computing the information rate of the user in the reference beam.

Abstract

We study the achievable rates by a single user in multibeam satellite scenarios. We show alternatives to the conventional symbol-by-symbol detection applied at user terminals. Single user detection is known to suffer from strong degradation when the terminal is located near the edge of the coverage area, and when aggressive frequency reuse is adopted. For this reason, we consider multiuser detection, and take into account the strongest interfering signal. Moreover, we analyze a different transmission strategy, where the signals from two adjacent beams jointly serve two users in a time division multiplexing fashion. We describe an information-theoretic framework to compare different transmission/detection strategies by computing the information rate of the user in the reference beam.
