AbstractSignal fading and intersymbol interference created by multipath propagation have traditionally limited the throughput on wireless communications systems. However, recent research has demonstrated that by using multiple antennas on both transmit and receive ends of the link, the multipath channel can actually be exploited to achieve increased communication throughput over single-antenna systems. This paper provides an introductory description of such multi-antenna communications systems, focusing on basic explanations of how they achieve capacity gains. Computed and measured capacity results are used to demonstrate the potential of these systems.
