Non Regenerative Cooperative MIMO Relaying - A Radio Network Capacity Evaluation
2005 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The concept of Cooperative MIMO Relaying (CMIMOR) has previously been introduced in order to allow terminals with single antenna elements to take some advantage of the MIMO techniques. In this paper we evaluate the capacity of a radio network employing non regenerative CMIMOR connections by explicitly taking into account the amount of additional resources needed for relaying. The paper investigates both a centralised and a decentralised resource allocation algorithm. We show that with a tight resource reuse, which is accomplished with the decentralised algorithm, and high relay densities, the CMIMOR system yields capacity figures superior to a single hop system employing beamforming. The gains are expressed in terms of average system capacity.
