Achievable Capacity with Spatial Channel Correlation in Massive MIMO Multi-Cell Systems

Massive Multi-Input and Multi-Output (MIMO) antenna system provides unlimited capacity by the spatial multiplexing and array gain. Since the data rate has been limited by the coherence interference due to pilot contamination (PC). In this paper, we propose transmit combine and precoding schemes to achieve asymptotic capacity in multi-cell scenario, when the number of base station antennas tends to infinity. The impact of spatial channel correlation on channel capacity is explored by considering

Since the diagonals of the channel covariance matrices were designed with non- zero Eigen values and linearly independent. The results outperform and obtain asymptotic limit, when the co-variance of UTs are linearly independent. The results were simulated by using MATLAB 2018b.
