Beam focusing antenna array technology for non-stationary mobility

Abstract : The aim of this paper a is to study new antenna array technologies in order to manage efficiently heterogeneous, fixed and mobile traffic. Traffic light close to the cell edge is introduced to generate non stationary mobility pattern in the cell. A car following model is used to model the mobility behavior of the vehicles. A heterogeneous antenna system with different large antenna array technologies is considered: Virtual Small Cell (VSC), virtual small cell with Self-Organizing Network (VSC-SON) and beamforming with multilevel global codebook that manages the heterogeneous antenna system at the Base Station (BS). The first two technologies improve the cell performance due to the capability to focus the signal at the traffic concentration near the traffic light. The novel beamforming solution with global codebook can further and significantly improve performance due to the capability to focus the signal along the road and to implicitly balance the traffic between the different antennas. Numerical simulations illustrate the benefits brought about by the different antenna technologies.
