Abstract in Undetermined

Very large MIMO is a technique that potentially can offer large network capacities in multi-user scenarios where the users are equipped only with single antennas. In this paper we are investigating channel properties for a realistic, though somewhat extreme, outdoor base station scenario using a large array. We present measurement results using a 128 element linear array base station and 26 different user position in line-of-sight (LOS) and 10 different user position in non line-of-sight (NLOS). We analyze the Ricean K-factor, received power levels over the array, antenna correlation and eigenvalue distributions. We show that the statistical properties of the received signal vary significantly over... (More)

Near field effects and the non-stationarities over the array help decorrelating the channel for different users, thereby providing a favorable channel conditions with stable channels and low interference for the considered single antenna users.
