CSI feedback in correlated slow-fading channels
Journal article, 2011
This letter studies the effect of quantized channel state information (CSI) feedback on the average rate of correlated channels. Demonstrating the general rate optimization problem, the results are obtained for both delayed and delay-free feedback conditions under different short- and long-term power allocation strategies. We also evaluate the effect of adaptive CSI quantization on the channel average rate. Analytical and numerical results show that exploiting the channel memory not only increases the forward channel data transmission efficiency but also can lead to dramatic feedback rate reduction.
