This paper is motivated by the need for fundamental understanding of ultimate limits of bandwidth efficient delivery of higher bit-rates in digital wireless communications and to also begin to look into how these limits might be approached. We examine exploitation of multi-element array (MEA) technology, that is processing the spatial dimension (not just(More)
— We investigate robust wireless communication in high-scattering propagation environments using multi-element antenna arrays (MEA's) at both transmit and receive sites. A simplified, but highly spectrally efficient space–time communication processing method is presented. The user's bit stream is mapped to a vector of independently modulated equal bit-rate(More)
—We investigate the effects of fading correlations in multielement antenna (MEA) communication systems. Pioneering studies showed that if the fades connecting pairs of transmit and receive antenna elements are independently, identically distributed, MEA's offer a large increase in capacity compared to single-antenna systems. An MEA system can be described(More)
—We evaluate the peak and average power savings due to relay deployments in cellular systems via a simulation study. The peak power savings translate to cost reduction in power amplifiers. The average power savings lead to savings in electricity bills. Half-duplex relays are placed one per sector in a 19-cell, 57-sector cellular network. In the baseline(More)
We quantify the ultimate performance limits of inter-cell coordinatation in a cellular downlink network. The goal is to achieve fairness by maximizing the minimum rate in the network subject to per base power constraints. We first solve the max-min rate problem for a particular zero-forcing dirty paper coding scheme so as to obtain an achievable max-min(More)
We present a network framework for evaluating the theoretical performance limits of wireless data communication. We address the problem of providing the best possible service to new users joining the system without affecting existing users. Since, interference-wise, new users are required to be invisible to existing users, the network is dubbed PhantomNet.(More)
