We first consider a single hop wireless X network with K transmitters and J receivers, all with a single antenna. Each transmitter conveys an independent message for each receiver. The channel is assumed to have constant coefficients. We develop an interference alignment scheme for this setup and derive an achievable degrees of freedom (DoF) region. We show that in some cases, the derived region meets a previous outer bound, and hence, is the (exact) DoF region. For our achievability schemes, we divide each message into streams and use real interference alignment on the streams. Several previous results on the DoF region and total DoF for several special cases can be recovered from our result. Next, we consider a network model, such that each transmitter emits an arbitrary number of messages and each receiver can request an arbitrary subset of all emitted messages. We term this network the X network with multicast. We derive an achievability result for the DoF region of such networks, as well as an outer bound. Our achievability scheme is based on a novel extension of real interference alignment that enables us to achieve more points of the DoF region. This approach allows multiple messages from a single user to be aligned with other users' messages. Finally, we discuss some points on the outer bounds that are not achievable with any of the alignment schemes that we present.
