Multimedia Broadcast over a Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) has attracted a lot of interest recently. This paper is on Golden coded spatial multiplexing MBSFN transmission using a Soft-Output Sphere Decoder (SOSD) and the impact of such a transceiver on the BLock Error Rate (BLER) system performance. In total, the authors consider three transceiver types and evaluate their performance in cellular Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) based MBSFN scenarios with urban characteristic taking into account single-cell broadcast and multi-cell broadcast with and without Guard Interval (GI) excess.
