1. A method for minimizing interference in a wireless network, the method comprising:
determining an increase in a number of high-powered wireless devices attached to a serving access node, wherein the increase in the number of high-powered wireless devices causes a corresponding increase in a potential interference to standard-powered wireless devices attached to the serving access node; and
activating a coordinated transmission mode for one or more standard-powered wireless devices responsive to the determining the increase in the number of high-powered wireless devices.
