This paper reports a novel design and system performance evaluation of 3D MIMO under LTE-A framework based on 3GPP FD MIMO channel model.We exhibit a creative design of centralized configuration for data processing convenience on BS side considering massive MIMO antenna structure, we also present analysis of three main risks on 3D massive MIMO demonstrator design, including time synchronization, channel estimation error, and precoding algorithm complexity. Simulation observations from results show: 1). Moderate estimation error will not greatly deteriorate system performance; 2). Performance gains from 3D vertical distributed ports over 2D increases with more receiving antennas; 3). Gains provided by horizontal ports over vertical ports decreases as the vertical ports number increases. Moreover, vertical ports provide only a little less gain than horizontal ports with same number of total antenna ports.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
