Performance of Space-Time Block Codes in Urban Microcells: The Effect of Antennas

Abstract

Performance of space-time transmission depends on the spatial characteristics of antennas and the propagation environment. In this paper, we evaluate bit error rate performance of space-time block codes with two and four transmit antennas using various antenna configurations and urban microcell channel measurements. Our results indicate that, with realistic… (More)
