Improving the Indoor WLAN Service by Using Polarization Diversity and MRC

Improving the Indoor WLAN Service by Using Polarization Diversity and MRC This paper analyzes the improvements that can be obtained in an indoor WLAN by using polarization diversity plus receive diversity for a network composed by access points (APs) with a single linear polarized antenna and customer premise equipments (CPEs) with two linear polarized antennas, compared with the case where only a single polarization is used for the whole WLAN. This improvement is analyzed in different scenarios, varying: polarization matching between APs and CPEs, AP density and distribution, combining scheme at reception, and channel models. The evaluation of the impact of polarization diversity in an office building was performed by measurements and simulations. Wireless Personal Communications Springer Journals
