Throughput Modeling and Measurement in an Isotropic-Scattering Reverberation Chamber
Journal article, 2014
This paper presents simple throughput models for multiple-input multiple-output orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems with hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ). In particular, we consider the long term evolution (LTE) systems. Antenna correlations and power imbalances are implicitly included in the models. In order to explicitly characterize the antenna effects on throughput, we resort to the spatial multiplexing (SM) efficiency. The SM efficiencies of a MIMO antenna with zero forcing (ZF), minimum mean square error (MMSE), and maximum likelihood (ML) receivers are studied via numerical simulations using the throughput models. To verify the throughput models, the throughputs of two LTE terminals (including antenna correlations and power imbalances) are measured in a reverberation chamber (RC). Good agreements between the measured and modeled throughputs are observed.
