MIMO Techniques for Mobile WiMAX Systems
This paper discusses the use of multiple-antenna techniques in mobile WiMAX systems. We first present antenna array techniques, which primarily reduce interference and enhance the useful signal power. Next, we give a general description of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems, which can be used for different purposes including diversity, spatial multiplexing and interference reduction. Then, we focus on the multi-antenna profiles adopted for WiMAX systems, discuss their relative merits, and address the implementation issues. Finally, we outline the design options taken by SEQUANS Communications and highlight their performance.
