    The statistical side information of interference channels is exploited in this paper to derive a novel uncoordinated on-line pilot design strategy for opportunistic communications. Assuming a time division duplex (TDD), ...
  • Receive antenna selection and hybrid precoding for receive spatial modulation in massive MIMO systems 

    Raafat Hosny Mohamed Fahm, Ahmed; Agustín de Dios, Adrián; Vidal Manzano, José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Recently, a receive spatial modulation (RSM) for massive multiple-input-multiple-output operating in millimeter wave (mmWave) was introduced with the purpose of simplifying user terminal circuit by employing only one ...
  • Closed-form capacity bounds for downlink and uplink decoupling 

    Aravanis, Alexios; Pascual Iserte, Antonio; Muñoz Medina, Olga (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) decoupling (DUDe) is a new architectural paradigm where DL and UL are not constrained to be associated to the same base station (BS). Thus, a user having access to multiple BSs within a dense ...
