Downlink transmission rate-control strategies for closed-loop multiple-input multiple-output systems
ABSTRACT A novel downlink transmission rate-control and feedback reduction strategy for closed-loop multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) multiple-input multiple-output wireless systems is presented. Unlike conventional systems that use signal to interference plus noise ratio at the receiver as an indicator of channel quality, we propose using instantaneous MIMO capacity as an indicator for the downlink transmission rate-control. A set of instantaneous capacity thresholds is first chosen such that the expected weighted capacity loss because of thresholding effects are minimised. While computing the thresholds, we also consider the quality of service and weight function to meet different traffics and user needs. Then a set of codebooks can be constructed minimising the overall capacity loss with given quality of service constraint. Simulation results show that, with only four data rate-control bits, our algorithm gives only 12% capacity loss in 4 times 4 MIMO systems and almost twice better than the current IS-856 standard in single-input single-output systems. In case of 5-bit feedback scenario, the proposed algorithm outperforms conventional systems by minimising instantaneous capacity loss.

ABSTRACT: A modulation system is proposed that continuously adjusts its data rate in response to signal strength variations in a fading channel. The optimum variation of data rate with channel conditions is determined, and includes the effects of feedback channel time delay, the interval between rate changes, and restriction of the number of allowable rates. Application of these results to a full duplex situation allows determination of the optimum fraction of the data stream to be devoted to service information. Comparison of this scheme with diversity transmission on the basis of error probability and bandwidth utilization reveals a reduction on the order of 14 dB in transmitter power for a typical duplex link.IEEE Transactions on Communications 03/1972; · 1.75 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: We consider a novel low-complexity adaptive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) transmission technique. The approach is based on switching between low-complexity transmission schemes, including statistical beamforming, double space-time transmit diversity, and spatial multiplexing, depending on the changing channel statistics, as a practical means of approaching the spatially correlated MIMO channel capacity. We first derive new ergodic capacity expressions for each MIMO transmission scheme in spatially correlated channels. Based on these results, we demonstrate that adaptive switching between MIMO schemes yields significant capacity gains over fixed transmission schemes. We also derive accurate analytical approximations for the optimal signal-to-noise-ratio switching thresholds, which correspond to the crossing-points of the capacity curves. These thresholds are shown to vary, depending on the spatial correlation, and are used to identify key switching parameters. Finally, we propose a practical switching algorithm that is shown to yield significant spectral efficiency improvements over nonadaptive schemes for typical channel scenariosIEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology 04/2007; · 2.06 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Link adaptation techniques, where the modulation, coding rate, and/or other signal transmission parameters are dynamically adapted to the changing channel conditions, have emerged as powerful tools for increasing the data rate and spectral efficiency of wireless data-centric networks. While there has been significant progress on understanding the theoretical aspects of time adaptation in LA protocols, new challenges surface when dynamic transmission techniques are employed in broadband wireless networks with multiple signaling dimensions. Those additional dimensions are mainly frequency, especially in multicarrier systems, and space in multiple-antenna systems, particularly multiarray multiple-input multiple-output communication systems. We give an overview of the challenges and promises of link adaptation in future broadband wireless networks. We suggest guidelines to help in the design of robust, complexity/cost-effective algorithms for these future wireless networksIEEE Communications Magazine 07/2002; · 3.66 Impact Factor
