Codebook design for uplink of densely small cells


  • Online:2014-08-22 Published:2010-01-03


The shrinking of cell-size brings significant changes to the wireless uplink of densely small cells (DSCs). A codebook design is proposed that utilizes the strong line of sight (LoS) channel component existing in a DSC system for uplink of the DSC system. To further improve the uplink performance, the high-rank codebook is designed based on singular value decomposition (SVD) due to the unnecessary preservation of strict constant modulus in the DSC system. And according to the simulation result, the proposed codebook leads to significant sum-rate gain and appreciable block error rate (BLER) performance improvement in the DSC system.
