In this paper, we consider a coordinated multi-point transmission (CoMP) scheme used in a cellular system where antenna ports are distributed throughout the cell, instead of using a single base station. Two schemes are considered; either ports can be switched on and off (Binary Power Management, BPM) or their transmission power can be adjusted (Continuous Power Management, CPM). The goal is to maximize the minimum signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) in the network for both schemes.
