IEEE SPS talk: Coherent Distributed MIMO Comm Systems
September 25, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This talk will provide an overview of distributed coherent communication systems and then discuss highlights of some selected recent results in this area. Distributed coherent communication systems (also called “virtual antenna arrays” or “distributed MIMO”) extend the well-known advantages of antenna arrays to networks of single-antenna devices by closely coordinating the transmissions of the individual devices and pooling their antenna resources. There are additional challenges in realizing the gains of distributed coherent transmission, however, including accounting for independent oscillator dynamics and potentially independent kinematics at each node in the system. These impairments establish fundamental limits on the gains that can be achieved in distributed coherent communication systems. This talk will discuss these challenges and then provide highlights on two topics: (i) channel state tracking and performance characterization of large-scale distributed MIMO communication systems and (ii) asymptotic performance analysis of large-scale distributed reception in the low per-node SNR regime.
