Cache-aided cooperation with no CSIT

Jingjing Zhang
Petros Elia


This work explores cache-aided interference management in the absence of channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT), focusing on the setting with K transmitter/receiver pairs endowed with caches, where each receiver k is connected to transmitter k via a direct link with normalized capacity 1, and to any other transmitter via a cross link with normalized capacity τ ≤ 1. In this setting, we explore how a combination of pre-caching at transmitters and receivers, together with interference enhancement techniques, can a) partially counter the lack of CSIT, and b) render the network self-sufficient, in the sense that the transmitters need not receive additional data after pre-caching. Toward this we present new schemes that blindly harness topology and transmitter-and-receiver caching, to create separate streams, each serving many receivers at a time. Key to the approach here is a combination of rate-splitting, interference enhancement and coded caching.
