In this paper we compare Shannon capacities of diversity, beamforming, and hybrid diversity-beamforming systems for reverse and forward links. Our resnlts show that the reverse link capacity of a diversity system LY higher than that of a beamforming system, while the beamforming system can pruvide higher capacity than the diversity system in the forward link. A hybrid diversity-beamforming system can provide comparable capaciQ to the diversity system in the reverse link and to the beamforming… CONTINUE READING
