Multi-Mode Transmission for the MIMO Broadcast Channel With Imperfect Channel State Information

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper proposes an adaptive multi-mode transmission strategy to improve the spectral efficiency achieved in the Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) broadcast channel with delayed and quantized channel state information. The adaptive strategy adjusts the number of active users, denoted as the transmission mode, to balance transmit array gain, spatial division multiplexing gain, and residual interuser interference. Accurate closed-form approximations are derived for the achievable rates for different modes, which help identify the active mode that maximizes the average sum throughput for given feedback delay and channel quantization error.
