MIMO-OFDMA System Level Evaluation

Many different aspects of MIMO wireless networks are extensively discussed in this book, and the theoretical analysis highlights the potential huge MIMO benefits at both link and system levels. MIMO has moreover been adopted in all major wireless communication standards. Yet, this book would not be complete without a final chapter assessing the real performance gains of MIMO. To that end, we provide hereafter further insights into system level performance gains of Single-User (where a single user is scheduled per time-frequency resource), Multi-User and Multi-Cell MIMO as defined in LTE/LTE-A/WiMAX.

In compliance with typical terminologies used in practical systems as WiMAX and LTE/LTE-Advanced, we ...
