  4. 4. Background of Multi-Antenna Techniques Fifty years ago, Shannon gave the maximum efficiency that a time and frequency communication system can achieve.  S C = B × log 2 1 + ( bit / s )  N The rapid development of wireless communications poses increasingly higher requirement for system capacity and spectral efficiency. Various algorithms are invented, such as spreading the system bandwidth, optimizing the modulation scheme, or using complex code division multiple access. These methods are limited: Bandwidth cannot be expanded indefinitely; modulation orders cannot increase indefinitely; channels between a CDMA system are not ideally orthogonal. Another dimension, that is, MIMO, is invented to better use the spatial resource. As expressed in the following equation, if multiple antennas are used, the capacity is increased by a multiplication of the number of antennas used.  S C = B × log 2 1 + ( bit / s ) × M  NHUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential
  5. 5. Advantages of Multi-Antenna Techniques The LTE system improves system performance for cell edge users and brings stable and reliable service experience for users. Therefore, multi-antenna techniques can make use of the spatial resource and increase the wireless transmission capacity many folds without increasing the transmit power and bandwidth. Array gain Improved Increased system coverage spectral efficiency Diversity gain Improved system capacity Spatial multiplexing gain Increased peak rate Co-channel interference reduction HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD.

  7. 7. Principles of the MIMO Techniques MIMO is an important technique in the LTE system. MIMO means use of multiple antennas at both the transmitter and receiver. MIMO can better utilize the spatial resource and increase spectral efficiency, achieving array gain, diversity gain, multiplexing gain, and interference rejection gain, providing higher system capacity, wider coverage, and higher user rate. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 7
  8. 8. Classification of MIMO Techniques Depending on whether the spatial channel information is used, MIMO techniques are classified into open-loop MIMO and closed-loop MIMO. • Open-loop MIMO: The UE does not feed back information, the eNodeB is not informed of the UE situation. The protocols support single-stream (TM2) or multi-stream (TM3). • Closed-loop MIMO: The UE feeds back information. The gain has a positive correlation with the accuracy of the feedback information. The protocols support single-stream (TM4) or multi- stream (TM6). At present, the feedback granularity supported by the reference signal in port 2 is large and closed-loop MIMO can hardly achieve gains. Closed-loop MIMO requires low UE mobility. At present, the eNodeB cannot accurately estimate the UE movement speed with an error of more than 30 km/h. Depending on the number of simultaneously transmitted spatial data streams, MIMO techniques are classified into spatial diversity and spatial multiplexing. These modes are described in detail in the following pages.MIMO Technique MIMO Mode Feature List in FDD Feature List in TDD UL 2-Antenna Receive Diversity UL 2-Antenna Receive Diversity UL 4-Antenna Receive Diversity UL 4-Antenna Receive Diversity Receive diversityMulti-antenna UL Interference Rejection UL Interference Rejection Combiningreceive Combining UL 8-Antenna Receive Diversity UL 2x2 MU-MIMO UL 2x2 MU-MIMO MU-MIMO UL 2x4 MU-MIMO UL 2x4 MU-MIMO Open-loop transmit diversity 2x2 MIMO Closed-loop transmit diversity 2x2 MIMOMulti-antenna Open-loop spatial multiplexing 4x2 MIMOtransmit 4x2 MIMO Closed-loop spatial DL 4x4 MIMO multiplexing HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 8
  9. 9. Principle of Multi-Antenna Receive MIMO eRAN2.2 supports UL 2-Antenna Receive Diversity and optional UL 4-Antenna Receive Diversity and UL 8-Antenna Receive Diversity. The following figure shows the block diagram of receive diversity. The UE uses one antenna to transmit signals; different UEs use different time and frequency resources. The eNodeB uses multiple antennas to receive signals and combine the received signals to maximize SINR, therefore obtaining diversity gain and array gain, increasing the cell coverage and improving single-user capacity. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 9
  10. 10. Principle of Multi-Antenna Receive MIMO Mechanism of Signal Combination: An MMSE receiver uses receive beamforming targeted at a UE. The receiver adjusts the combined weight and changes the direction of the major lobe and side lobe to maximize the SINR of the received signals. There are two combination algorithms for UL receive diversity. Maximum ratio combining (MRC) and interference rejection combining (IRC) can both obtain diversity gain and array gain, improving system performance. MRC and IRC are suitable for environments with different interference characteristics. MRC receivers and IRC receivers are implementation of MMSE receivers in different scenarios. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 10
  11. 11. Specification of Multi-Antenna Receive MIMO  Adaptive Switchover Between MRC and IRC  For eNodeBs V2.2, IRC is optional. If IRC is not selected, an eNodeB uses MRC. If IRC is selected, an eNodeB adaptively selects IRC or MRC depending on the current radio channel quality.  If there is separable strong colored interference, the system automatically uses IRC algorithm.  If there is no separable strong colored interference, the system automatically rolls back to MRC algorithm.  In UL 2x2 MU-MIMO mode, the eNodeB does not support UL Interference Rejection Combining or UL 2-Antenna Receive Diversity  In UL 4-Antenna Receive Diversity mode, the eNodeB supports UL Interference Rejection Combining. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 11
  12. 12. Principle of Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) Theoretically, the number of virtual MIMO users in the same RB cannot exceed the number of receive antennas of the eNodeB. eNodeBsV2.2 support MU-MIMO 2x2. The following figure shows MU-MIMO 2x2. eNodeBV2.2 , The protocols support a maximum of MU-MIMO 4x4. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 12
  13. 13. Multi-Antenna Transmit MIMO  The eNodeB supports multi-antenna transmission and the UE does not. DL 2x2 MIMO, DL 4x2 MIMO, and DL 4X4 MIMO are described. R9 defines nine multi-antenna transmission modes (TMs). The eNodeB adaptively selects one TM according to the channel condition and service requirement. Supported by No. Name Applicable Scenario Current eNodeB 1 Single antenna (port 0) Single-antenna transmission.

Supports a maximum of eight layers. Increases data 9 No and 4-stream transmission rate. Suitable for low mobility and high SNR. beamforming HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 13
  14. 14. Concepts  Port  A port is a logical port and does not necessarily correspond to an antenna. There can be multiple ports. The LTE protocols support a maximum of eight physical antennas. Ports correspond to pilot formats, whereas the number of physical antennas has not direct relationship with the pilot formats.  Port 0 to port 3: Ports for transmitting common pilots. Usually the number of ports for physical broadcast channels and downlink control channels is the same as that for common pilots.  Port 5: A port defined in the LTE for supporting single-stream beamforming. The data of a single port can be weighted and mapped to multiple physical antennas.  Port 6: A port for locating the pilot.  Port 7 to port 14: Similar to port 5. Supports a maximum of 8 layers. The data of 8 ports can be weighted and mapped to 8 physical antennas. Used for dual-stream beamforming.  Port 15 to port 22: CSI-RS port.  Maximum number of streams = Number of logical antenna ports [2 ports, 4 ports, or 8 ports] HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 14
  15. 15. Concepts Pilots in the LTE system  Cell-specific reference signal (CRS): CRS is known as common pilot. CRS is used by the control channels for channel estimation and demodulation. CRS is used for demodulation of TM1 to TM6 and RSRQ measurement.  UE-specific reference signal at port 5: It is used for demodulating TM7.  DM RS at ports 7 to 14: It is used for demodulating TM8 to TM9 and is the reference signal in R9 and R10. It supports MU-MIMO and demodulation of a maximum of eight layers.  Reference signal at port 6: It is used for locating the UE.  Channel status information measurement RS (CSI-RS): It is used for measuring the channel quality indication, precoding matrix indication, and RI. CSI-RS supports measurement of eight ports.  Sounding reference signal (SRS): It is used for measuring the uplink channels and supports uplink scheduling.HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 15

  17. 17. Open-Loop Transmit Diversity In open-loop transmit diversity (TM2), space-frequency block coding (SFBC) is used if the number of transmit antennas is 2; SFBC and frequency switched transmit diversity (FSTD) are used if the number of transmit antennas is 4. SFBC: For two-way transmit (DL 2x2 MIMO), the transmit diversity uses SFBC, where X1 and x2 are the information to be transmitted before SFBC, * indicates conjugate operation, f1 and f2 are different subcarriers, and Tx1 and Tx2 are different transmit antennas. SFBC codes x1 and x2 to different antennas and subcarriers for transmission: x1 over Tx1 f1, x2 over Tx1 f2, -x2* over Tx2 f1, and x1* over Tx2 f2. Therefore, by transmitting copies of x1 and x2 over different antennas and frequencies, SFBC achieves diversity gain.HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 17
  18. 18. Open-Loop Transmit Diversity SFBC+FSTD For 4-way transmit (DL 4x2 MIMO or DL 4X4 MIMO), SFBC and FSTD are used together. In FSTD, some of the transmit antennas are selected sequentially in frequency for transmission. The transport format of SFBC+FSTD is as follows: x1, x2, x3, and x4 are information to be transmitted before coding; f1 to f4 are different subcarriers; Tx1 and Tx4 are different transmit antennas; * indicates conjugate operation; 0 indicates no information transmitted. In SFBC+FSTD, x1 to x4 are coded to different antennas and subcarriers for transmission; the transmit antennas are selected. Like SFBC, SFBC+FSTD achieves diversity gain by transmitting copies over different antennas and frequencies. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 18
  19. 19. Spatial Multiplexing Spatial multiplexing means transmission of multiple spatial data streams over different antennas in the same RB. The dimension of spatial channels is increased compared with the single-antenna technique. Therefore, spatial multiplexing increases system capacity and achieves spatial multiplexing gain. Spatial multiplexing includes two operations: layer mapping and precoding. Depending on whether the precoding matrix is obtained based on the feedback information of the UE, spatial multiplexing is classified into open-loop spatial multiplexing (TM3) and closed-loop spatial multiplexing (TM4). The following figure shows the 2x2 spatial multiplexing HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 19
  20. 20. Adaptive Mode Configuration Mulit-Antenna transmit technologies can support different scenario transmit and mode. According to different scenarios, eNodeB support choose the most best MIMO mode. Mode choice and switch four type:  Open and close loop mode adaptive choose and switch  Open loop adaptive mode choose and switch  Close loop adaptive mode choose and switch  Fix mode choose DL 2x2 MIMO and DL 4x2 MIMO support four mode choose and switch. DL 4X4 MIMO only support open loop adaptive mode choose and switch.

  25. 25. Principles of Beamforming  Beamforming is a downlink multi-antenna technique. The transmitter of an eNodeB weights the data before transmission, forming narrow beams and aiming the energy at the target user, as shown in the following figure.  Beamforming does not require the UE to feed back information or use multiple antennas to transmit data. The direction of incoming wave and the path loss information are obtained by measuring the uplink received signal. The benefits of beamforming are as follows: Increased SINR in the direction of incoming wave from the UE. Increased system capacity and coverage. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential
  26. 26. Classification of Beamforming Techniques DOA Beamforming and MIMO Beamforming:  Direction of Arrival (DOA) beamforming: The eNodeB estimates the direction of arrival of the signal, uses the DOA information to calculate the transmit weight, and targets the major lobe of the transmit beam at the best direction.  MIMO beamforming: The eNodeB uses the channel information to calculate the transmit weight, forming a beam. In the industry, the TDD system uses open-loop Beamforming and the FDD system uses closed-loop Beamforming. Huawei eNodeB supports open- loop Beamforming. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 26
  27. 27. Classification of Beamforming (Single-Stream) Single-stream beamforming means transmission of a single data stream in the same OFDM resource block. It is suitable for situations of poor channel quality. Single-stream beamforming achieves diversity gain by 1 dB by increasing the SNR. Take 4-antenna as an example. The following figure shows single-stream beamforming. The data stream S is weighted by w1 to w4 and is sent to the four antenna ports for transmission. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 27
  28. 28. Classification of Beamforming (Dual-Stream)Dual-stream beamforming means transmission of two data streams in the same OFDMresource block, leading to spatial multiplexing. It is suitable for situations of good channelquality.Take 4-antenna as an example. The following figure shows dual-stream beamforming.There are two data streams S1 and S2; each antenna has two weights wi1 and wi2. S1 isweighted by four weights: w11 to w41; S2 is weighted by another four weights w12 to w42. Theweighted streams are summed and sent to the four antenna ports for transmission. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 28
  29. 29. Engineering Guidelines of Beamforming Before configuring beamforming antennas, you need to understand the correspondence between the port No. and the co-polarization of cross-polarized antennas. The following figure shows the connection between RRU ports and antenna element of the four or eight antennas. At present, the RRU models in LTE TDD that support beamforming are RRU3232, RRU3233, and RRU3235.4-antenna cross 4-antenna linear 4-antenna circular 8-antenna crosspolarization mapping polarization mapping polarization mapping polarization mapping HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD.

  30. 30.

EI Huawei Confidential Page 32
  33. 33. KPI of BeamformingRelevant featuresSingle-stream beamforming must be enabled before dual-stream beamforming.Influence on the KPISingle-stream or dual-stream beamforming has the following influence on the KPI:Cell average throughputIf the single-stream and dual-stream beamforming is enabled, the signal energy received bythe UE is increased, the MCS is increased at the same UE position, beamforming achieveshigher cell average throughput than transmit diversity. In comparison with no beamforming,single-stream beamforming increases the cell average throughput by 15% to 25%. Incomparison with single-stream beamforming, adaptive single-stream and dual-streambeamforming increases the cell average throughput by more than 10%.  Beamforming compared with 2R diversity (UL) • ~ 30% gain in cell average throughput • ~ 50% gain in cell edge user throughput  Beamforming compared with 2x2 MIMO (DL) • ~ 15% gain in cell average throughput 23%~90% increasing in edge user throughput • ~ 40% gain in cell edge user throughput HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 33
  34. 34. Adaptive MIMO and Beamforming With adaptive beamforming and MIMO, the UE always uses TM of high spectral efficiency under the same channel condition. In comparison with non-adaptive MIMO or beamforming, adaptive MIMO and beamforming significantly increases average cell throughput. If beamforming is used, due to the overhead of UE-specific reference signal, the number of resource blocks is reduced. Therefore, in case of good channel quality, beamforming throughput is slightly lower than MIMO throughput. At high UE mobility (higher than 120 km/h), the eNodeB cannot track the channel change accurately according to the sounding reference signal. In this situation, beamforming is not suitable. Adaptive beamforming and MIMO (low Adaptive beamforming and MIMO (high mobility) mobility) HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 34
  35. 35. Adaptive MIMO and Beamforming The BFMIMOADAPTIVESWITCH parameter is used to select adaptive beamforming or MIMO. The eNodeB selects beamforming or MIMO according to the value of the parameter, the UE movement speed, and SINR. If the value of the parameter is NO_ADAPTIVE, the eNodeB does not support adaptive Beamforming and MIMO. If the value of the parameter is TxD_BF_ADAPTIVE, the eNodeB supports adaptive TM2 (transmit diversity) and beamforming. There are two scenarios: low UE mobility and high UE mobility. Low UE mobility: For UEs that do not support R9, single-stream beamforming (TM7) is used; for UEs that support R9, single-stream beamforming (TM7 or TM8) is used at low SINR and dual-stream beamforming (TM8) is used at high SINR. High UE mobility: Transmit diversity is used. If the value of the parameter is MIMO_BF_ADAPTIVE, the eNodeB supports adaptive transmit diversity, dual-stream MIMO (TM3), and beamforming. There are two scenarios: low UE mobility and high UE mobility. Low UE mobility: For UEs that do not support R9, single-stream beamforming (TM7) is used at low SINR and dual-stream MIMO (TM3) is used at high SINR; for UEs that support R9, single-stream beamforming is used at low SINR and dual-stream beamforming (TM8) is used at high SINR. High UE mobility: Transmit diversity is used at low SINR and dual-stream MIMO (TM3) is used at high SINR. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 35
  36. 36. Comparison Between Beamforming and OtherTechniques  Though a space diversity system or intelligent antenna system has multiple transmit or receive antennas, they can transmit only single-stream data. A MIMO system can transmit single stream or multiple streams depending on the channel quality.  MIMO requires that the number of receive antennas is not less than the number of transmit antennas. Space diversity and intelligent antennas do not have this requirement. HUAW TECHNOLOGIES CO., LTD. EI Huawei Confidential Page 36
