Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems form an essential part of LTE in order to achieve the striving requirements for throughput and system robustness. In Long Term Evolution (LTE), MIMO technologies have been broadly used to get better downlink peak rate, cell coverage, as well as average cell throughput. To achieve these goals, LTE adopts two major MIMO technologies i.e. Spatial Multiplexing (SM) and Transmit Diversity (TD) to offer substantial benefits in terms of rate and reliability.
