Abstract

Single-carrier distributed antenna network (SCDAN), in which a group of multiple antennas are distributed in a cell serve a user, can mitigate adverse impacts of path loss, shadowing loss and multipath fading. Frequency-domain space-time block coded-joint transmit/receive diversity (FD-STBC-JTRD) is attractive for downlink transmission since an arbitrary number of distributed transmit antennas can be used. FD-STBCJTRD requires the channel state information (CSI) only at the transmitter side and therefore, the complexity problem of mobile terminals can be alleviated. In this paper, we investigate, by computer simulation, the bit error rate (BER) distribution of the SC-DAN downlink. We discuss the impact of the number of distributed antennas involved in FD-STBC-JTRD on the BER outage probability.
