— Block diagonalization (BD) is a precoding technique that eliminates inter-user interference in downlink multiuser multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems. With the assumptions that all users have the same number of receive antennas and utilize all receive antennas when scheduled for transmission, the number of simultaneously supportable users with(More)
A clustered base transceiver station (BTS) coordination strategy is proposed for a large cellular MIMO network, which includes full intra-cluster coordination–to enhance the sum rate–and limited inter-cluster coordination–to reduce interference for the cluster edge users. Multi-cell block diagonalization is used to coordinate the transmissions across(More)
Multiuser spatial multiplexing is a downlink transmission technique that uses linear transmit pre-coding to multiplex multiple users and pre-cancel inter-user interference. In such a system the spatial degrees of freedom are used for interference mitigation and generally come at the expense of diversity gain. This paper proposes two precoding methods that(More)
— Multiuser spatial multiplexing uses precoding to support multiple users in multi-antenna wireless channels. In this paper, two transmit diversity techniques are proposed that use extra transmit antennas to obtain additional diversity. In one solution, an eigenmode selection technique is proposed to achieve higher diversity gain by optimally matching the(More)
The sum capacity of a Gaussian broadcast MIMO channel can be achieved with dirty paper coding (DPC). However, algorithms that approach the DPC sum capacity do not appear viable in the forseeable future, which motivates lower complexity interference suppression techniques. Block diagonalization (BD) is a linear precoding technique for downlink multiuser MIMO(More)
— Block diagonalization is a precoding technique for multiuser MIMO systems that pre-cancels inter-user interference at the transmitter side. When there are a large number of base station antennas but a limited number of RF amplifiers, the system performance can be significantly improved by switching a subset of antennas to the RF chains and exploiting(More)
