Massive MIMO Channel Characterization
It has been estimated that data traffic from the different mobile devices that range from smartphones to machine-to-machine (M2M) devices will exceed 15.9 exabyte per month by the year of 2018. With this immense data growth, the current wireless communication systems suffer from the scarcity of the radio spectrum and eventually cannot cope with such high demands. Massive MIMO technology is one of the most promising technologies that has the potential to be the standard technology for the next generation of wireless communication systems. This thesis aims to characterize massive MIMO channels in every possible scenario for a typical seven-cell hexagonal configuration. Each cell can be described as follows:

  • Either 8 or 16 single-antenna mobile users.
  • Either 64 or 128 basestation antennas.
  • Either critically spaced or sparsely spaced antennas.
  • Either rich or clustered scattering.
  • Either fast fading or slow fading.
  • Either flat or frequency selective fading.
  • Including the attenuation due to distance and shadowing.

The characterization is considered in both spatial and angular domains.
