Experimental evaluation of MIMO terminal antenna configurations in noise- and interference-limited urban scenarios
In this paper, we compare capacity performances of three terminal dual-antenna configurations at 2.65 GHz based on extensive 2 by 2 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel measurements in an urban macrocellular environment. Both noise- and interference-limited scenarios are investigated. Our results show that, on average over the measurement route, the capacity performance is mainly determined by the received power. However, locally along the route, the eigenvalue dispersion of the channel can be the dominant factor that influences the capacity performance. In addition, significant differences in the local performances of the terminal antenna configurations along the route give an indication that antenna reconfigurability is a promising approach to maximize capacity.
