    Abstract

    Distributed antenna network (DAN) is a promising wireless network to solve the problems arising from shadowing and path lesses as well as frequency-selective fading. Many anntennas are spatially distributed around each base station (BS) so that with a high probability, some antennas can always be visible from a mobile station (MS). Recently, we proposed a 2-dimensional water-filling (2D-WF) transmit diversity for singlecarrier (SC) DAN downlink transmission. An MS having single receive antenna was considered. In this paper, we extend the 2DWF transmit diversity to the case of MS having multiple receive antennas to implement frequency-domain space-time block coded-joint transmit/receive diversity (FD-STBC-JTRD). The channel capacity distribution is evaluated by Monte-Carlo numerical computation method. It is shown that the use of 2 receive antennas maximize the downlink channel capacity while the use of around 5 distributed transmit antennas is sufficient.
