This paper presents a performance analysis of a cellular system which uses an adaptive antenna array in conjunction with a space division multiple access (SDMA) based dynamic channel allocation scheme. The channel allocation scheme is necessary because in SDMA systems there is channel re-use, which must be "intelligently" handled. The system analysed is shown to give significantly improved performance over that attainable with conventional (non-adaptive) antennas. The analysis includes a simulation of a realistic communications system, complete with coding, modulation, multipath transmission, direction of arrival estimation, beamforming, demodulation and decoding

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
