A new lower bound on the ergodic capacity of distributed MIMO systems
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

We present a novel and analytical lower bound on the ergodic capacity of distributed multiple-input multiple-output (D-MIMO) systems operating in composite Rayleigh/lognormal (RLN) fading and assuming double-sided spatial correlation. The proposed lower bound is applicable for finite number of antennas and remains tight across the entire Signal-to-Noise (SNR) regime. In addition, we perform a detailed low-SNR analysis that provides useful insights into the implications of the system parameters on MIMO capacity.
