From the Back Cover
Multi-antenna techniques are currently an extremely active area of research in wireless communications. They are widely considered to be the most promising avenue for significantly increasing the bandwidth efficiency of wireless data transmission systems and this exceptional volume presents their key aspects. MIMO and MISO (transmit diversity) techniques are explained in a common setting, in a clear and concise manner, and special emphasis is placed on combining theoretical understanding with engineering applicability. Practical examples include the transmit diversity concepts in the WCDMA standard, as well as several promising novel MIMO concepts, crucial for future high data rate systems. Such techniques are currently being considered in relevant standardization bodies (e.g. 3GPP, 3GPP2) and they are likely to form the basis for bandwidth efficient communication for systems beyond 3G.
- Covers the theory and applications of linear processing transmit diversity and MIMO methods that operate both with and without channel state information
- Presents specific examples of high throughput, low complexity space-time codes both for MIMO and MISO systems
- Provides a detailed and elaborated discussion on the theory of linear space-time block codes
- Contains closed loop transceiver techniques for maximal exploitation of channel state feedback
If you need to understand why multi-antenna techniques are important when increasing the capacity/data rates for future wireless systems then you should read this book. Multi-antenna Transceiver Techniques for 3G and Beyond
will have instant appeal to research engineers in academia and industry, development engineers in 3G system design, research students and managers.
