Multiple-antenna techniques constitute a key technology for modern wireless communications, which trade-off superior error performance and higher data rates for increased system complexity and cost. Among the many transmission principles that exploit multiple-antenna at either the transmitter, the receiver, or both, Spatial Modulation (SM) is a novel and(More)
In this paper, we study the performance of spatial modulation (SM) multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) wireless systems over generic fading channels. More precisely, a comprehensive analytical framework to compute the average bit error probability (ABEP) is introduced, which can be used for any MIMO setup, for arbitrary correlated fading channels, and for(More)
The fifth generation (5G) network will serve as a key enabler in meeting the continuously increasing demands for future wireless applications, including an ultra-high data rate, an ultrawide radio coverage, an ultra-large number of devices, and an ultra-low latency. This article examines security, a pivotal issue in the 5G network where wireless(More)
Trellis coded modulation (TCM) is a well known scheme that reduces power requirements without any bandwidth expansion. In TCM, only certain sequences of successive constellation points are allowed (mapping by set partitioning). The novel idea in this paper is to apply the TCM concept to the antenna constellation points of spatial modulation (SM). The aim is(More)
Since the trail-blazing paper of C. Shannon in 1948, channel capacity has been regarded as the fundamental information-theoretic performance measure to predict the maximum information rate of a communication system. However, in contrast with the analysis of other important performance measures of wireless communication systems, a unified and general(More)
In this Letter, a low-complexity Euclidean distance-based method for antenna subset selection in Spatial Modulation systems is presented. The proposed method avoids the high complexity of both the optimal exhaustive search and of a recently proposed Euclidean distance-based algorithm for performing the selection. Moreover, as the number of receive antennas(More)
Abstract In this paper, a new mathematical framework to the analysis of millimeter wave cellular networks is introduced. Its peculiarity lies in considering realistic path-loss and blockage models, which are derived from recently reported experimental data. The path-loss model accounts for different distributions of line-of-sight and non-line-of-sight(More)
A new class of low-complexity, yet energy-efficient Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) transmission techniques, namely, the family of Spatial Modulation (SM) aided MIMOs (SM-MIMO), has emerged. These systems are capable of exploiting the spatial dimensions (i.e., the antenna indices) as an additional dimension invoked for transmitting information, apart(More)
In this paper, we introduce an analytical framework to compute the average rate of downlink heterogeneous cellular networks. The framework leverages recent application of stochastic geometry to other-cell interference modeling and analysis. The heterogeneous cellular network is modeled as the superposition of many tiers of Base Stations (BSs) having(More)
In this paper, we contribute to the theoretical understanding, analysis, and design of spatial modulation multiple-input-multiple-output (SM-MIMO) systems for transmit diversity without channel state information at the transmitter. The contribution is threefold: 1) The achievable transmit diversity of SM-MIMO is analytically studied by analyzing the impact(More)
