Abstract

In general, it has been demonstrated that the performance of conventional random beamforming (RBF) approaches that of ideal eigen beamforming when the number of users is large in a cell by exploiting multi-user diversity. However, if the number of users decreases, such as femto or pico cell in the 3GPP Long Term Evolution-Advanced standard, the performance degradation occurs in the RBF scheme due to the lack of multi-user diversity. In this paper, we present a novel precoder based on singular value decomposition (SVD) using feedback of weight values in an RBF environment. For achieving performance improvement in the femto cell environment, we generate a precoding matrix appropriate to user channel by controlling the feedback values with an equivalent feedback quantity. In the simulation results, we verify the outstanding performance of the proposed scheme for a small number of users.
