  author={Ralf Pabst and Jan Ellenbeck and Marc Schinnenburg and Christian Hoymann},
  journal={2007 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference},
Recent years have witnessed an ever-increasing interest in smart antenna technologies to boost the capacity of existing and future wireless systems. As one of the first standards the wireless metropolitan area network IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) provides means to support these techniques. This paper investigates the potential of smart antenna beamforming and space division multiple access (SDMA) in the context of a cellular IEEE 802.16 deployment. It presents the system level performance evaluation of… CONTINUE READING
