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 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 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)
—In this paper, we discuss some of the most basic architectural superstructures for wireless links with multiple antennas: at the transmit site and at the receive site. Toward leveraging the gains of the last half century of coding theory, we emphasize those structures that can be composed using spatially one dimensional coders and decoders. These(More)
With wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) rapidly nearing its scalability limits, space-division multiplexing (SDM) seems the only option to further scale the capacity of optical transport networks. In order for SDM systems to continue the WDM trend of reducing energy and cost per bit with system capacity, integration will be key to SDM. Since integration(More)
