[Solved] Support of D-MIMO/User-centric-MIMO/Cell-free MIMO
Hi! Thanks for this great framework!
I wonder if DeepMIMO supports D-MIMO (a.k.a. User-centric-MIMO, Cell-free MIMO) setup for CSI information?
Hi @Yifei Jin,
The DeepMIMO generates the channel matrices of the UE-BS channels. By activating multiple basestations in a scenario, you can generate the channels between the users and these basestations. This is sufficient to support the distributed MIMO setup.
For example, if you activate the first 5 basestations (M=5) in the scenario O1 and select a set of the users (let's say the first 10 users, U=10), you can have the channels (H_mu) for each UE-BS pair and compute the expressions for distributed MIMO setup.
As a related application, you may take a look at the coordinated beamforming paper and implementation.
