In this study, the performance of uplink spectral efficiency in massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) over a spatially correlated Ricean fading channel is presented. The maximum ratio combining (MRC) receiver is employed at the base station (BS) for two channel estimation methods. The first method is based on pilot-assisted least minimum mean square error (LMMSE) estimation, whereas the second is based on line-of-sight (LOS). The respective analytical expressions of the uplink data rate… CONTINUE READING
