Abstract

A polarisation diversity combing scheme for dual-polarised multiple-input and multiple-output channels in small cell environments introduced and evaluated. The scheme is based on post analysis of channel measurement data captured from scenarios and includes indoor-to-indoor, indoor-to-outdoor, and indoor-outdoor-indoor propagation. An analysis of link signal strength and correlation with respect to frequency and polarisation revealed profound differences between copolarised and cross-polarised links in terms of received signal strength and correlation between frequencies. Utilizing these differences, a polarisation diversity combing scheme is evaluated which is shown to produce an average of 10.6-dB polarisation diversity gain.
