Abstract

Due to the single element nature of the antenna at the mobile station, the traditional downlink diversity schemes of distributed antennas, such as simulcast or multipath antenna diversity, cannot exploit the advantage of distributed antennas as much as the uplink. In this paper, through the analysis of an indoor measurement, we propose co-phase transmission diversity. A simulation using the measurement shows that this scheme can achieve better downlink quality.
