AbstractThe outage occurring from beamformer-based smart antennas is analysed for an antenna array deployed in an urban macro-cell environment. Spatio-temporal channel data obtained from a small, urban cell and from within the UTRA frequency allocation has enabled beamforming performance to be determined from the measured uplink and downlink frequency bands. The analysis shows a sub-optimum uplink beamformer performance is observed for 8% of occasions and a 25% downlink beamforming outage for an eight-element uniformly spaced linear array.
