Abstract

Non-cooperative cellular Massive MIMO, combined with max-min power control, is known to give substantial improvements in per-user throughput compared with conventional 4G technology. We investigate further refinements to Massive MIMO, first, in the form of three-fold sectorization, which can be viewed as an effective reduction in cell size, and second, three-fold sectorization combined with coordinated multi-point operation, in which the three sectors cooperate in the joint service of their users. We analyze the downlink performance of the system for zero-forcing precoding and propose centralized and decentralized power control schemes. The simulation results reveal that sectorization, and multi-point coordinated sectorization lead to 2.36× and 8.56× improvements in the 95%-likely per-user throughput, respectively.
