Executive Summary

Opportunistic Beamforming (OB) relies on the transmission of Channel State Information (CSI) in the form of instantaneous Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) from Mobile Stations (MSs) back to the Base Station (BS) for scheduling purposes that increase throughput and/or maintain resource allocation fairness. OB is employed in environments of low mobility and low scatter, artificially inducing channel fluctuations that can better exploit Multi-User Diversity (MUD). Multiple antennas at the BS are randomly alter the channel's response and generate peaks in gain where users can be scheduled on, maximising system throughput.
