Downlink MIMO HetNets: Modeling, Ordering Results and Performance Analysis

  title={Downlink MIMO HetNets: Modeling, Ordering Results and Performance Analysis},
  author={Harpreet S. Dhillon and Marios Kountouris and Jeffrey G. Andrews},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications},
We develop a general downlink model for multi-antenna heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets), where base stations (BSs) across tiers may differ in terms of transmit power, target signal-to-interference-ratio (SIR), deployment density, number of transmit antennas and the type of multi-antenna transmission. In particular, we consider and compare space division multiple access (SDMA), single user beamforming (SU-BF), and baseline single-input single-output (SISO) transmission. For this general… CONTINUE READING
