1SP18: Assessing a MIMO Channel

MIMO technologies are an essential component of state-of-the-art mobile radio systems and are key to achieving extremely ambitious capacity goals that include providing stable data rates in the two- to three-digit Megabit per second range over a broad coverage area. However, the effectiveness of these technologies is not always guaranteed. A channel state matrix can provide the information needed to determine whether spatial multiplexing is possible for multilayer data transmission. Simple indicators for evaluating the mobile radio channel are derived from the channel matrix. This white paper presents these parameters and discusses them based on simulated and real coverage measurement results.
