This book-the first of its kind-is subdivided into five thematic parts. Part I, looks at narrow and broadband channel characterization based on measurements from around the globe. Taking into account current regulations and electromagnetic compatibility, Part II describes MIMO signal processing strategies and related capacity and throughput estimates.(More)
Utilization of Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) principles improves throughput and reliability in particular of residential Power Line Communications (PLC) systems. This paper analyses the MIMO-PLC channels based on measurements obtained during the ETSI STF410 field measurement campaign in six European countries. STF410 recorded - among many other(More)
Inhome Power Line Communications (PLC) enables new and highly convenient networking functions without any additional wires to mains-powered devices. Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) methods significantly improve the coverage of guaranteed data throughputs in private homes. This paper gives an overview on MIMO PLC. The results from the channel(More)
In-house power line communication (PLC) enables new and highly convenient networking functions without any additional cables to mains-powered devices. Since wireless networks are not able to reach sufficient throughput between different rooms or even floors, PLC is considered to be the ideal backbone home network medium, providing complementary and seamless(More)
Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) methods significantly improve the coverage of Power Line Communications (PLC) compared to Single Input Single Output (SISO) systems. This paper describes the implementation and results of the first real-time MIMO PLC feasibility study. Our system setup includes two PCs, each containing two FPGAs. It enables the(More)
Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques allow an unprecedented increase in coverage and throughput for Power Line Communications (PLC), by exploiting the diversity inherent to the three-wire electrical network. To evaluate the performance of such systems, an accurate knowledge of the transmission medium properties is required. This paper presents(More)
