Abstract

Mobile network operators demand small base station antennas and high physical layer throughputs. In the downlink, high physical layer throughputs can be achieved by exploiting transmit diversity. Given that the correlation between different propagation paths reduces the achievable throughput, it is commonly conjectured that the greater the transmit antenna spacing, the better the radio link performance. The open question is, how much does the throughput of a communication system actually change over antenna spacing?
