Abstract

In this paper, we establish the degrees of freedom (DoF) of the two-user single input single output (SISO) X-channel with alternating channel state information at the transmitters (CSIT). Three cases are considered for the availability of CSIT; perfect, delayed and no-CSIT. Each state is associated with a fraction of time denoted by $\lambda_P, \lambda_D$ and $\lambda_N $, respectively. We provide new results for DoF of the two-user SISO X-channel when the available CSIT alternates between these three cases under a certain distribution $\Lambda(\lambda_P, \lambda_D, \lambda_N )$. Specifically, we show that the X-channel with alternating CSIT for $\Lambda(1/8, 3/8, 1/2)$ can achieve $5/4$ DoF. The interesting thing about $5/4$ is that it represents a position of compromise or a middle ground between the channel knowledge that transmitters need to steer interference and the degrees of freedom that the network can achieve. Moreover, $5/4$ is strictly greater than $6/5$ which is the upper bound for the X-channel with \textit{fixed} delayed CSIT.
