MIMO Wireless Networks : Channels, Techniques and Standards for Multi-Antenna, Multi-User and Multi-Cell Systems, 2/e (Hardcover)
Bruno Clerckx, Claude Oestges
Unique in explaining the principles of MIMO networks at both link and system levels: now updated to include the latest developments in multi-user and multi-cell ???? channels and techniques, key developments for the developments of 4G networks!
This book is unique in bridging the gap between MIMO radio propagation and signal processing techniques and presenting robust MIMO network designs for real-world wireless channels. Through a unified framework, it emphasizes how propagation mechanisms impact the MIMO system performance under realistic power constraints. Combining a solid mathematical analysis with a physical and intuitive approach, the book progressively derives innovative designs, taking into consideration that MIMO channels are often far from ideal.
Reflecting developments since the first edition was published the book has been updated and now includes several new chapters, covering Multi-user MIMO, Multi-Cell MIMO, Receiver Design, MIMO in 3GPP and WiMAX and realistic system level evaluations of MIMO networks performance.
? Physical models and analytical representations of single-link and multi-link MIMO propagation channels, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of various models
? Overview of space-time coding techniques, covering both classical and more recent schemes under information theory and error probability perspectives
? In-depth presentation of how real-world propagation affects the capacity and the error performance of MIMO transmission schemes
? Innovative and practical designs of robust space-time coding, precoding and limited feedback techniques for realistic propagation (including single-carrier and MIMO-OFDM transmissions)
? Overview of popular MIMO receiver architectures
? Multi-user diversity and resource allocation schemes in OFDMA networks as well as linear and non-linear MU-MIMO techniques under ideal and non-ideal channel knowledge
? Extensive coverage of cooperative multi-cell MIMO-OFDMA networks, including network resource allocation optimization, coordinated scheduling, beamforming and power control, interference alignment, joint processing and network MIMO
? Applications of MIMO and Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) in LTE, LTE-A and WiMAX? Theoretical derivations and results contrasted with practical system level evaluations highlighting the performance of single-cell and multi-cell MIMO techniques in realistic deployments.
