Fifth-generation (5G) cellular systems are likely to operate in or near the millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequency bands of 30–300 GHz, where vast spectrum currently exists with light use. At these mmWave frequencies, the wavelength is so small that highly directional, steerable antennas may be used in novel ways. As recently shown, and in this article,(More)
This paper presents the achievable radio frequency (RF) coverage and system capacity using mm-wave based cellular systems. It is shown that the RF coverage obtained in each cell are less amorphous in shape compared to the existing microwave bands, and therefore mm-wave based cellular systems will achieve better network-wide RF coverage than the existing(More)
This paper presents the analysis of relay multiplexing configuration for IEEE 802.16j systems employing MIMO antennas. The availability of multiple relay paths in IEEE 802.16j motivates two relay configurations: relay diversity and relay multiplexing. Existing works have focused on the relay diversity method. In this paper, we explore the relay multiplexing(More)
This paper presents the symbol error probability (SEP) analysis of MIMO-relay multiplexing configuration for IEEE 802.16j systems. The availability of multiple MIMO relay paths in IEEE 802.16j motivates two relay configurations: i) Relay Diversity and ii) Relay Multiplexing. Existing works have focused on the relay diversity methods. In this paper, we(More)
The recent advancement in the computational power made it possible to use the powerful error correcting codes such as the turbo codes with the Space-Time Coding (STC) to provide both coding gain and diversity gain to the wireless communication systems to improve the error rate performance at very low signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). In this paper, we propose(More)
The combination of MIMO–OFDM is a very attractive solution for broadband wireless services. Thus, the two prominent fourth-generation (4G) cellular systems, WiMAX and LTE-advanced, have both adopted MIMO–OFDM transmission at the physical layer. OFDM signal however suffers from nonlinear distortions when passed through high-power amplifier (HPA) at the RF(More)
