This volume introduces you to the mathematical and technical background of Multidimensional Channel Sounding (MCS) Technologies and then guides you through to the higher levels to give a clear and thorough understanding. It commences with an in depth explanation of the need for channel sounding for the research and design of future B3G wireless systems. It covers a measurement-based view of the sounding techniques, including multidimensional real time sounder device architecture aspects and high-resolution antenna array system design. It also describes system and array calibration procedures and high-resolution parameter estimation methods for channel parameter identification. The second half of the book focuses on the applications of MSC to the realistic evaluation and optimization of MIMO radio access schemes. Explains channel sounding techniques including its latest multidimensional achievements and their theoretical background. Based upon this, advanced methods for design, optimization and performance application of MIMO transmission systems are elaborated. Describes the need for and relevance of MIMO (Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output), identified as the key approach to meeting the transmission capacity requirements of future B3G mobile communications systems. Provides the first reference book for measurement-based models and offers a complex understanding of the whole design procedure which not only includes knowledge from communication and signal processing but also from measurement, parameter estimation and applied RF engineering. Offers advanced explanations of Multidimensional Channel Sounding , Measurement Data-Based Link-Level Simulations and Measurement Data-Based System-Level Simulations.
