Evaluation of Eigenvalue and Block Diagonalization Beamforming Precoding Performance for 5G Technology over Rician Channel

2019 Tehnički Vjesnik  
In traditional wireless cellular, at the same cell, users can cause co-channel interference (CCI) between each other; CCI can deteriorate the channel's capacity. A multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with beamforming technology solves this CCI problem. Exploiting the channel state information (CSI) in a multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) system can improve the performance of the channel link by designing the precoding vectors for every user. A linear precoder has multiple methods, like Block

This paper evaluates the symbol-detection performance for BDP and EP in MU-MIMO beamforming over a Rayleigh fading channel. Then, the channel matrix replaces the typical channel assumption with its correlated realistic Rician fading channel. Simulation results show that the Rician fading channel has performance improvement until with low Rician factor value, compared to a conventional channel. The high value of the Rician factor can reduce the error rate.
