Abstract

This paper explores the possibility of using multiuser massive MIMO and beamforming together as two-stage multiuser access methods in 5G cellular. Multi-carrier OFDM transmission as currently used in the 4G-LTE may be difficult to implement in 5G cellular because of the peculiarities of mmWave channels. Therefore, there is the need to analyze and propose suitable physical layer techniques suitable for 5G systems that are amenable to beamforming and/or massive MIMO. It turns out that both of these schemes are inherently multiuser access methods and can be used together in 5G cellular. Our results show that simple transmitter and receiver processing can be achieved when using the combined system. Moreover, the proposed approach will allow the system to accommodate more users at minor error rate degradation.
