Joint Estimation of Channel Parameters in Massive MIMO Systems via PARAFAC Analysis

In this paper, we investigate channel parameter estimation for massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems, where a large base station (BS) antenna array is used to provide multiplexing and diversity gains. We propose a Parallel Factor (PARAFAC)-based joint estimation scheme, which exploits the low-rank property of massive MIMO channels caused by… CONTINUE READING
