Combining Alamouti Scheme with Block Diagonalization Beamforming precoding for 5G Technology over Rician Channel 

Wireless communication faces a number of adversities and obstacles  as a result of fading and co-channel interference (CCI). Diversity with beamformer techniques may be used to mitigate degradation in the system performance. Alamouti space-time-block-code (STBC) is a strong scheme focused on accomplishing spatial diversity at the transmitter, which needs a straightforward linear processing in the receiver. Also, high bit-error-rate (BER) performance can be achieved by using the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with beamforming technology. This approach is particularly useful for CCI suppression. Exploiting the channel state information (CSI) at the transmitter can improve the STBC through the use of a beamforming precoding. In this paper, we propose the combination between Alamouti STBC and block diagonalization (BD) for downlink multi-user MIMO system. Also, this paper evaluates the system performance improvement of the extended Alamouti scheme, with the implementation of BD precoding over a Rayleigh and Rician channel. Simulation results show that the combined system has performance better than the performance of beamforming system. Also, it shows that the combined system performance of extended Alamouti outperforms the combined system performance without extended Alamouti. Furthermore, numerical results confirm that the Rician channel can significantly improve the combined system performance.
