Abstract [en]

NOVELTY - The method involves transmitting sector messages from the base station, where each sector message is associated with a corresponding sector of the cell. The sector messages transmitted by the base station are received at a mobile terminal and a signal quality associated with each receiver sector messages is determined. At the mobile terminal one of multiple antennas is selected as a function of the signal quality determination. An antenna selection request message is transmitted from the mobile terminal to the base station. USE - For cellular network. ADVANTAGE - Improves the BS antenna selection process in cellular, broadband access network which employs multiple antennas per BS. Improves signal quality of communication links between MTs and corresponding BS which employs multiple antennas. DETAILED DESCRIPTION - An INDEPENDENT CLAIM is included for an apparatus for selecting one of the multiple antennas. DESCRIPTION OF DRAWING(S) - The figure shows a technique for selecting in accordance with an embodiment of the invention.
