Abstract: With the exponentially increasing demand for wireless communications, the capacity of current cellular systems will soon become incapable of handling the growing traffic. Since radio frequencies diminish natural resources, a fundamental barrier to further capacity increase exists. The solution can be found in adaptive antenna systems. Adaptive antenna systems enable network operators to increase the wireless network capacity, where such networks are expected to experience an enormous increase in traffic. This is due to increased users and the high data rate service and applications. In addition, adaptive antenna systems offer the potential of increased spectrum efficiency, extended range of coverage, and a higher rate of frequency reuse. This paper aims to overview the technology, the fundamental system model, and the used algorithms.
Keywords: Adaptive antenna, smart antenna, steering vector.
