Abstract : Topological interference management (TIM) allows studying the degrees of freedom (DoF) of partially connected linear interference communication networks, where the channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT) is restricted to the topology of the network, i.e., a knowledge of which interference links are weak and which are strong. In this paper, we consider TIM for an infinite downlink cellular network in the one-dimensional (1D) linear and the two-dimensional (2D) hexagonal models. We consider uniformly distributed users in each cellular cell, effectively creating a continuous distribution of users, aiming to study user classes based on different interference profiles rather than on actual individual users' positions. We also consider the construction of the TIM network topology by analyzing different interference thresholds. Unlike previous works, we use TIM at the user class level to find the system's DoF independent of the actual user position. Finally, after proposing a fractional coloring scheme that can achieve the optimal DoF solution, a trade-off between DoF and SIR is given.
