A recently realized concept of a reconfigurable hardware test-bed suitable for real-time mobile communication with multiple antennas is presented in this paper. We discuss the reasons and prerequisites for real-time capable MIMO transmission systems which may allow channel adaptive transmission to increase link stability and data throughput. We describe a(More)
The implementation of adaptive channel inversion into a real-time single carrier MIMO test-bed is reported for the first time. Since no joint detection is possible at the distributed users all signal preprocessing is performed at the transmitter which adapts the transmission links to all mobile terminals adaptively depending on the actual channel situation.(More)
In this paper, we present real-time broadband multi-user multi-antenna measurements in typical indoor and outdoor scenarios. For the first time, essential frequency-selective functions of a new medium access control (MAC) layer, namely fair resource assignment to multiple users, spatial mode selection and adaptive modulation, have been implemented in(More)
Information theory predicts huge performance gains in terms of spectrum efficiency by using cooperative transmission from multiple base stations. Cooperation eliminates inter-cell interference and it enables a higher channel rank. The isolated cell capacity is an upper bound for unlimited backbone capacity, infinite signal processing power and infinite(More)
We demonstrate how virtual MIMO techniques can be implemented in a next-generation mobile communication system. In order to test basic principles, joint spatiotemporal processing of two users has been implemented in an uplink scenario. A prerequisite of virtual MIMO is accurate synchronization. It is shown that the carrier frequency offset can be reduced to(More)
In this paper we present rst real-time outdoor multi-user multiantenna measurements based on system parameters close to 3GPP-Long Term Evolution. We demonstrate switching between various transmission modes in the downlink steered by a quantized feedback channel. Real time results show that an OFDMA proportional fair scheduler based on the quantized feedback(More)
