Abstract

Space division multiple access (SDMA) uses the advantage of the smart antenna technology to form directional antenna pattern in a cellular. By exploiting the directional antenna pattern for users, SDMA can achieve the spatial orthogonality among users and channel reuse within a cell. Several studies have shown the performance improvement of SDMA in a mobile communication environment. This paper extends the two-folding SDMA blocking probability derivation from [3] and approximately two-folding SDMA approaches from [4]. An approximately model is proposed for three-folding SDMA and the corresponding blocking probability is derived. Analytical and simulation results show that three-fold SDMA increases capacity over the traditional cellular system, which demonstrates the effectiveness of SDMA for resource management.
