Beam and User Selection Technique in Millimeter Wave Communications
MetadataShow full item record
Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is a promising technology to fulfill the requirements of future wireless networks. It provides very large spectrum and a large number of antennas can be practicable due to the small wavelength to exploit the array gain. However, there are several challenges, restricting the utilization of mmWave, such as hardware complexity and power consumption. To overcome these challenges, hybrid analog/digital architecture providing lower dimensional beamspace multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system is used. For the hybrid architecture, beam selection techniques exploiting the sparse nature of the mmWave channel become significant. In this paper, we consider a downlink mmWave communication when the large number of antenna is utilized at the base station. For that system, we propose a beam selection and a correlation based user selection algorithms to maximize the sum data rate. © 2020 IEEE.
