Performance Analysis of Distributed ZF Beamforming in the Presence of CFO

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors study the effects of residual Carrier Frequency Offset (CFO) on the performance of the distributed Zero-Forcing (ZF) beamformer. Coordinated transmissions, where multiple cells cooperate to simultaneously transmit toward one or multiple receivers, have gained much attention as a means to provide the spectral efficiency and data rate targeted by emerging standards. Such schemes exploit multiple transmitters to create a virtual array of antennas to mitigate the co-channel interference and provide the gains of multi-antenna systems. Here, they focus on a distributed scenario where the transmit nodes share the same data but have only the local knowledge of the channels.
