In this paper, we consider multiuser cooperative multiplexing schemes in cellular networks with fixed relays and address the problem of inter-user interference. We propose two schemes to mitigate the effect of the interference: an interference cancellation scheme and a cooperative precoding scheme. The interference cancellation scheme utilizes the broadcast nature of the signal transmitted to the fixed relay, and is based on a decode-and-forward relaying protocol. We provide a capacity bound for the proposed scheme, and also propose a power reduction scheme for the fixed relay. For the cooperative precoding scheme, we employ a cooperative linear filter at the transmitter to eliminate interference. Simulation results show that both proposed schemes enhance the achievable throughput significantly.
