Distributed MIMO and Relaying Communications

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Robert Schober ,  Dr. Diomidis Michalopoulos

Time and place: Wed 14:00 – 15:30, E 1.10

ECTS Information:
ECTS credits: 2,5

The principal idea behind relaying communications is that the message sent from a source terminal reaches the destination terminal via one or more relaying terminals. This communication scenario results in significant performance gains which stem from the ability of relaying to exploit the broadcast nature of wireless channels.

The goal of this course is to provide the fundamentals of wireless relaying, along with its potential for forming distributed multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) setups. Topics to be covered include the operation of basic relaying modes, relaying configurations and mode of operation, as well as the fundamental concepts of stochastic geometry and their application to relaying and distributed MIMO.
