Sum Rate Capacity of MIMO HetNet Systems in the Presence of Channel Estimation Error

22 Sep 2019  ·  Bangar Esha, Taherkhani Nima, Kiasaleh Kamran ·

In this paper, the impact of channel estimation error (CEE) on the sum-rate capacity of multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) heterogeneous networks (HetNets) is investigated. It is assumed that the receiver is a linear minimum mean-square (LMMS) receiver... The architecture is based on the deployment of macro base stations with large antenna arrays and a secondary tier of small cell base stations having fewer number of antenna arrays. The key contribution of the paper is to highlight the noticeable impact of CEE on the sum-rate capacity of macro-cells. Furthermore, it is shown that CEE has only marginal impact on the sum-rate capacity of small cells. Simulations for the sum rate of macro users versus that of the small cell users for time-division duplex (TDD) are performed and the results are compared with the case when channel estimation error is present. read more
