Abstract

We address a pilot-assisted channel equalisation strategy for the partially loaded downlink time-division duplex (TDD) component of the universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS). Adaptation is performed by minimising a hybrid cost function based on the constant modulus (CM) criterion for all active users and a mean square error (MSE) criterion for both absent users and pilot signals. Computer simulations are used to assess the performance of the equalisation strategy under various partially loaded conditions.
