For gigabit wireless data services, there are three important technical issues to be addressed: limited bandwidth, severe frequency-selective fading, and limited transmit power. A distributed antenna network (DAN) is a promising solution to the above three technical issues. In DAN, each mobile user is served by using multiple distributed antennas close to it. In this paper, recent advances in various distributed multi-input/multi-output (MIMO) techniques combined with single-carrier (SC) frequency-domain signal processing are presented for DAN. Particular attention is paid to SC frequency-domain MIMO diversity, relay, beamforming, and multiplexing jointly used with frequency-domain equalization (FDE) to significantly improve the signal transmission performance.
