We investigate enhanced downlink multiuser multiple input multiple output (MU-MIMO) transmission schemes for 3GPP LTE-Advanced based on system level simulations. As compared to Rel. 8 LTE single user MIMO (SU-MIMO), MUMIMO has the potential to better exploit the spatial dimension of MIMO channels in some scenarios. Although Rel. 8 LTE defines a simple MU-MIMO mode, more advanced MUMIMO techniques are currently discussed towards Rel. 10 LTEAdvanced to further improve the spectral efficiency. In… CONTINUE READING
