Channel capacity of TDD-OFDM-MIMO for multiple access points in a wireless single-frequency-network
Publikation: Forskning - peer review › Tidsskriftartikel
The multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) technique is the most attractive candidate to improve the spectrum efficiency in the next generation wireless communication systems. However, the efficiency of MIMO techniques reduces in the line of sight (LOS) environments. In this paper, we propose a new MIMO data transmission scheme, which combines Single-Frequency-Network (SFN) with TDD-OFDM-MIMO applied for wireless LAN networks. In our proposal, we advocate to use SFN for multiple access points (MAP) MIMO data transmission. The goal of this approach is to achieve very high channel capacity in both LOS and non line of sight (NLOS) environments. The channel capacity of the proposed method is derived for the direct path environments and it confirms the effectiveness of the proposed scheme in the LOS scenario. Moreover, solid computer simulation results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method in both, single user and multiuser scenarios.
