MIMO Communication for Cellular Networks: Theory and by Howard Huang,Constantinos B. Papadias,Sivarama Venkatesan

By Howard Huang,Constantinos B. Papadias,Sivarama Venkatesan

As the theoretical foundations of multiple-antenna ideas evolve and as those multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) thoughts develop into crucial for supplying excessive info premiums in instant platforms, there's a starting to be have to comprehend the functionality limits of MIMO in useful networks. to deal with this desire, MIMO verbal exchange for mobile Networks presents a scientific description of MIMO expertise sessions and a framework for MIMO approach layout that takes under consideration the fundamental physical-layer positive factors of functional mobile networks.

In distinction to works that target the theoretical functionality of summary MIMO channels, MIMO communique for mobile Networks emphasizes the sensible functionality of life like MIMO structures. A unified set of approach simulation effects highlights relative functionality profits of alternative MIMO innovations and gives insights into how top to take advantage of a number of antennas in mobile networks lower than quite a few conditions.

MIMO conversation for mobile Networks describes single-user, multiuser, community MIMO applied sciences and system-level elements of mobile networks, together with channel modeling, source scheduling, interference mitigation, and simulation methodologies. the most important suggestions are awarded with adequate generality to be utilized to a variety of instant platforms, together with these in keeping with mobile criteria resembling LTE, LTE-Advanced, WiMAX, and WiMAX2. The publication is meant to be used by means of graduate scholars, researchers, and training engineers drawn to the physical-layer layout of state of the art instant systems.
