The capacity performance of ICIC has been extensively studied in coordinated multi-point transmissions (CoMP). In practice however, due to limited feedback, the acquired channel direction information (CDI), which is crucial for ICIC, is often partially available. Hence one may question whether the ICIC is able to meet the Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements. This paper considers the optimal partitioning of the feedback bits in CoMP while accounting for the inter-cell interference cancellation (ICIC). In this paper, we adopt a statistical model of QoS in CoMP by using the notion of effective capacity (EC). Utilizing EC we then formulate the system function as an optimization problem with the objective of maximizing the total EC subject to the limited feedback available to the cluster of base stations (BSs). Analytical bounds are then obtained on the EC performance which are then utilized as the base for algorithms that assign feedback bits among the user equipments (UEs) and BSs. Using simulations we then investigate the accuracy of the obtained bounds and highlight practical system designs for dealing with stringent delay requirements. Of crucial practical importance, the findings of this paper also indicates that in CoMP there is an optimal cluster size for a given feedback capacity that maximizes the corresponding EC.
