Joint transmission as a convergence enabling MIMO technique

Joint Transmission (JT) is a novel receiver-oriented transmission scheme and belongs to the class of Preequalization techniques using channel state information at the transmitter. This MIMO technique allows simplified detection schemes at the mobile terminal (e.g. a simple matched filter).

Simplified receiver structures help to overcome the implementation complexity problem, when a multi-standard terminal has to be build, and enables therefore a more unified baseband processing across the different air-interfaces at the terminal. Joint transmission can therefore be understood as convergence-enabling MIMO technique supporting the objectives of FLOWS.

During the project lifetime, the JT idea was further developed in detail and derivates were created with certain advantages. The grade of maturity of this technology was increased and the performance was evaluated using the realistic scenarios developed by FLOWS.
