In this paper we propose a channel state feedback algorithm that uses multiple feedback thresholds to reduce the number of users transmitting feedback to a minimum. The users are polled with lower and lower threshold values and only the users that are above a threshold value transmit feedback to the base station. We show how this feedback algorithm can be used for any scheduling algorithm and show how closed-form expressions for the optimal threshold values can be obtained for two well-known scheduling algorithms. Finally, we propose a two-step optimization procedure for optimizing the feedback algorithm for real-life cellular standards.
