Electromagnetic Lens-Focusing Antenna Enabled Massive MIMO: Performance Improvement and Cost Reduction

  title={Electromagnetic Lens-Focusing Antenna Enabled Massive MIMO: Performance Improvement and Cost Reduction},
  author={Yong Zeng and Rui Zhang and Zhi Ning Chen},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
Massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) techniques have been recently advanced to tremendously improve the performance of wireless communication networks. However, the use of very large antenna arrays at the base stations brings new issues, such as the significantly increased hardware and signal processing costs. In order to reap the performance gains of massive MIMO and yet reduce its cost, this paper proposes a novel system design by integrating an electromagnetic (EM) lens with the… CONTINUE READING
