Threshold Receiver Model for Throughput of Wireless Devices with MIMO and Frequency Diversity Measured in Reverberation Chamber
Journal article, 2011

We present a simple theoretical model for the throughput data rate of a wireless LTE device including the improvements of data rate due to diversity in frequency (OFDM) and spatial domains (MIMO) under frequency selective fading. The model is based on defining an ideal threshold receiver for the line-of-sight (LOS) case, corresponding to reception with advanced error-correcting codes. The theoretical throughput model is in agreement with measurements in a reverberation chamber of a commercial LTE device for the 1 x 2 SIMO case, both regarding diversity and MIMO array gains, and it can therefore be used to complement measured results in evaluation of performance of LTE devices.
