Wireless local area networks (WLANs) are becoming denser and thus interference-limited due to heavy traffic from a number of adjacent access points (APs) and stations (STAs). We propose a novel interference management technique for overlapping basic service sets (OBSSs) in such WLANs, which intelligently applies an opportunistic interference alignment (OIA) concept to WLANs. Each BSS has an AP and multiple STAs, and operates with a carrier sensing multiple access (CSMA) protocol as commercial IEEE 802.11 WLANs. Both APs and STAs are assumed to have multiple antennas. Specifically, the proposed OIA framework consists of physical (PHY) and medium access control (MAC) layer techniques: transmit beamforming and opportunistic medium access, respectively. First, each STA performs transmit beamforming which minimizes generating interference to other BSSs at the PHY layer. Second, each STA sends packets to its serving AP only when its generating interference to other BSSs is smaller than a pre-determined threshold at the MAC layer. Through extensive simulations, we show that proposed OIA scheme significantly outperforms existing schemes in terms of system throughput. Note that the OIA scheme operates with a distributed manner based on local channel state information at each STA and does not require any coordination among BSSs, leading an easier implementation in practice.
