Method for Decreasing Fading in a Telecommunication System
1998 (English)Patent (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The present invention provides a method for decreasing fading and more particularly the down-link fading in a mobile telecommunication system having transmit lobe diversity. The telecommunication system comprises at least one base station having an antenna array providing lobe diversity, and communicating with mobile terminal units. According to the invention, the average path-loss between the base station and a mobile terminal unit is measured by the base station in order to select a set of alternative lobes. The instantaneous down-link path-loss of the alternative lobes between the base station and the mobile terminal unit is also measured by the mobile in order to select a communication lobe from said set of alternative lobes, such that the communication is effected in the communication lobe.
