Impact of Antenna and Propagation on Wireless Communication Technology: Terminal, Base Station, and Channel Modeling

Description

For wireless communications, the antennas at both sides of the wireless chain and the corresponding propagation characteristics play an important role in the system design and optimization. In past standardization activities, for example, in 3GPP LTE/LTE-Advanced and IEEE 802.16m, only some simplified antenna patterns are assumed during the standardization, which may influence the system parameter optimization and system performance in practical deployment. For example, only omnidirectional antenna pattern is assumed at the terminal and perfect sectoring antenna pattern is assumed at the base station, while the impact of practical antenna pattern, coupling among the antennas, and human body on the channel characteristics has been ignored. It is, therefore, valuable to evaluate how these nonideal issues on the antennas will influence the propagation characteristics and thus the system design. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • The impact of antenna on the MIMO capacity
  • The impact of antenna on the advanced techniques of LTE or LTE-A
  • The impact of the antenna on the link and system performance
  • Measurement and modeling of the antenna impact on the channel propagation characteristics
  • Antenna design and optimization for MIMO application
  • Antenna arrays for mobile devices
  • Active antenna on MIMO application
  • Verification and test solutions for antenna design
  • Measurement and modeling of the impact of human body on the antenna pattern
  • Coupling among the antennas on the channel characteristics
  • The impact of propagation channel modelling on the system design
  • The impact of propagation channel modelling on the link and system level performance
  • The advanced numerical/computational techniques in the simulation and modeling, including antenna computation and channel modeling
