In-band full-duplex communication has a great potential to enhance wireless local area networks, where full-duplex access points can support simultaneous uplink (UL) and downlink (DL) flows over the same frequency channel. This work presents a scheduling and power adaptation technique to manage interference in wireless local area networks with full-duplex capability. The proposed system focuses primarily on scheduling UL and DL clients that can be efficiently served simultaneously. First, we develop a DL client scheduling algorithm that allows for sum throughput gains with the existence of a UL client. Second, we manage the interference resulting from the UL flow via adjusting the UL transmit power to maximize rate for DL clients that are served in a multiuser multiple-input–multiple-output fashion.
