Claim of US Patent No. 10,251,185

1. A method of assigning transmission resources by an access node, the method comprising:allocating first transmission resources to a first device;
allocating second transmission resources to a second device, wherein the second transmission resources partially, but not completely, overlap the first transmission resources, and wherein an amount of overlap between the first transmission resources and the second transmission resources is based on a target error rate for decoding transmissions received from the first device and the second device and/or a signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) of transmissions from the first device and the second device;
calculating an actual error rate for decoding the transmissions received from the first device and/or the second device; and
adjusting the amount of overlap between the first transmission resources and the second transmission resources in response to the actual error rate.
