MAC layer design for mmWave massive MIMO

G. Lee; Y. Sung    Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Daejeon, South Korea


In this chapter, multiple access control (MAC) for mmWave massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) is covered with a focus on user scheduling for spatial-division multiple access based on multiple antenna transmission. Several known and new user scheduling methods for spatial-division multiple access are introduced and their performance is analyzed under relevant mmWave MIMO channel models to provide insights into MAC in mmWave massive MIMO.
