System-Level Impact of Multi-User Diversity in SISO and MIMO-based Cellular Systems

The authors quantify cell-wide mean throughputs of Single-Input-Single-Output (SISO) and Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO)-based cellular systems which employ Multi-User Diversity (MuD). Their study considers several practical and useful system-level design dimensions, including: number of transmit/receive antennas; antenna-pattern (omni-directional or sectorized); degree of error-protection (Shannon coding, no coding or intermediate coding strategies); allowable constellation size; Rician-factor; number of users and scheduling algorithm (Greedy (i.e. MAX C/I), Proportional Fair, or Equal Grade of Service) in single-cell (noise-limited) and multi-cell (co-channel-interference-limited) environments.
