Massive MIMO with a Generalized Channel Model: Fundamental Aspects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is becoming a mature technology, and has been approved for standardization in the 5G space. Although there are many papers on the theoretical analysis of massive MIMO, the majority of relevant work assumes the simplified, yet overly idealistic, Kronecker-type model for spatial correlation. Motivated by the deficiencies of the Kronecker model, we invoke a naturally generalized spatial correlation model, that is the Weichselberger model. For this model, we pursue a comprehensive analysis of massive MIMO performance in terms of channel hardening and favorable propagation (FP). We identify a number of scenarios under which massive MIMO may fail and discuss their relevance from a practical perspective.
