Downlink Physical-Layer Processing
This chapter provides a detailed description of the LTE downlink physical-layer functionality, including transport-channel processing, downlink reference signals, details on downlink multi-antenna transmission, and control signaling.
downlink reference signals; downlink control signaling; channel coding; downlink multi-antenna transmission; transmission modes
In Chapter 8, the LTE radio-interface architecture was discussed with an overview of the functions and characteristics of the different protocol layers. Chapter 9 then gave an overview of the time-frequency structure of LTE transmissions including the structure of the basic OFDM time-frequency grid being the fundamental physical ...
