Massive MIMO: Pilot Design, Power Allocation, and Distributed Deployment

Akbar, Noman


Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is widely acknowledged as the key enabling technology for the next-generation mobile communication networks. Pilot contamination (PC) is one of the key performance limiting factors for realizing the full potential offered by massive MIMO. This thesis investigates various aspects of PC in massive MIMO. First, we present methods to mitigate PC through pilot sequence design and location-aware pilot allocation. Second, we examine the impact of PC attack...[Show more]
