Temporal and spatial combining for 5G mmWave small cells

  title={Temporal and spatial combining for 5G mmWave small cells},
  author={David Stuart Muirhead and Muhammad Ali Imran},
This chapter proposes the combination of temporal processing through Rake combining based on direct sequence-spread spectrum (DS-SS), and multiple antenna beamforming or antenna spatial diversity as a possible physical layer access technique for fifth generation (5G) small cell base stations (SBS) operating in the millimetre wave (mmWave) frequencies. Unlike earlier works in the literature aimed at previous generation wireless, the use of the beamforming is presented as operating in the radio… Expand


Insights and Approaches for Low-Complexity 5G Small-Cell Base-Station Design for Indoor Dense Networks
This paper investigates low-complexity approaches to small-cell base-station (SBS) design, suitable for future 5G millimeter-wave (mmWave) indoor deployments, and investigates the performance of low- Complexity approaches using a minimal number of antennas at the base station and the user equipment.

An LSAS with sixty-four OdB gain service antennas per cell can simultaneously serve 15 users with a total energy efficiency almost 1000 times greater than that of a typical LTE base station and at the same time more than quadruple the aggregate spectral efficiency. Expand
Comparison of beamforming techniques for W-CDMA communication systems
It is found that the single-beam method has a poorer SInR performance in the low SINR region because it is more likely to suffer from deep fading and the multiple-beam beamforming technique has a much better SINRs in the moderate or high regions. Expand
