In this letter, we introduce a coordinated multi-cell transmit diversity (TxD) technique which improves the existing space frequency block coding based single-cell TxD schemes by combining them with inter-cell cyclic delay. With the proposed symbol-to-subcarrier mapping rule, this novel method achieves better diversity gain over the existing multi-cell and single-cell counterparts. This design is easy to implement and the number of the cooperating cells is configurable. Moreover, it has the… CONTINUE READING
