Antenna configurations and orientations are known to have a major influence on the performance of a wireless communications link. In this paper we study the impact of antenna patterns and orientations on the downlink of an OFDMA LTE-Advanced system. We consider a heterogeneous network (HetNet) comprising a large macrocell with a single picocellular underlay. The spatial and temporal characteristics of the radio channel are modelled using 3D ray-tracing and combined with appropriately orienteddoi:10.1109/eucap.2012.6206032 fatcat:swgdjiuuebe4jbt52rj5gi5w54
