Abstract

A novel channel model has been proposed for mobile millimeter-wave (mmWave) massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications to evaluate the effect of end-user mobility. In this model the variance of number of clusters and number of rays generated from each cluster is taken into account that is novel and different from widely used channel models. Two optimum codebook based beam-tracking schemes multi-objective joint optimization codebook (MJOC) and linear hybrid combiner (LHC) have been proposed for the novel channel model and their performance for spectral efficiency (SE) is presented. Performance for the two most commonly used channel state information (CSI) estimation approaches is investigated. Finally, the relationship between the beamforming training blocks and optimal beam tracking scheme is presented.
