We investigate a pricing based approach to control interference from a tier-2 base station (BS) to a tier-1 BS in reversed time division duplex (TDD) multi-antenna systems. The tier-2 BS is being charged for causing interference to the tier-1 BS. Also, the tier-2 BS has to satisfy the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) targets of its downlink users under a maximum transmission power constraint. Analytical and simulation studies are carried out to understand the behavior of the tier-2 BS for different charges and for different power budgets. Observations from the analyses suggest that the tier-1 BS can perform interference control and/or profit maximization without knowing the downlink channels of the tier-2 BS.
