Precoding for Multi-User Massive MIMO Systems
Context and research subject
Multi-user Massive MIMO has been proposed to answer the increase of spectral efficient de- mand to met the 5G requirements. Massive MIMO employing suitable precoding techniques can yield large gains in spectral efficiency (SE) and energy efficiency (EE) as compared to conven- tional MIMO systems, as the effects of noise and interference are negligible when the number of antennas approaches infinity. But, some limitations due to the realistic urban environment induce a decrease on the obtained gains. A massive MIMO wireless system could use a single-cell (SC) or a multi-cell (MC) structure. In this work, we will be interested to multi-cell scenario with collaborative BSs. considering constraints as provided backhaul, cluster size, shared CSI, we aim to design an efficient non linear precoding based on lattice-aided methods offering very low complexity.
The proposed research work makes part of a collaborative project with Nokia, led by Prof. Ghaya Rekaya-Ben Othman. The main objective of this project consists in proposing innovative precoding techniques for MU-Massive MIMO systems leading to patents and publications.
