Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents an analysis on the capacity and performance of MIMO-OFDM systems. The paper is focused on the capacity of MIMO-OFDM systems over rician fading channel, in the case of the channel being known at the receiver only, which is more practical case of the channel. Simple expression for capacity is derived for the case of correlated rician fading. The performance of some MIMO-OFDM implementations with rician fading model is presented using an Alamouti coding scheme and simulation results are obtained for both capacity and performance analysis.
