Impact of frequency selective channels on a line-of-sight MIMO microwave radio link
Konferensbidrag (offentliggjort, men ej förlagsutgivet), 2010
Two line-of-sight (LoS) multiple-input multipleoutput (MIMO) systems for point-to-point microwave radio links are simulated and analyzed. Both 2×2 spatially-separated, singlepolarized and 4×4 spatially-separated, dual-polarized systems are considered in the presence of a frequency selective and time varying channel. Time dependence is introduced by moving the antennas during the simulation and thereby introducing the need for an adaptive space-time-equalizer (STE). Our results indicate that a time-varying frequency selective LoS MIMO channel puts higher requirements on the STE and introduces a higher SNR penalty compared to a single-input single-output (SISO) system. © 2010 IEEE.
