This paper investigates the performance of the ETSI HIPERLAN/2 standard with dual antenna diversity utilized at mobile terminals. Software-simulated physical layer packet error rate (PER) results are presented for both transmit (up-link) and receive (down-link) diversity configurations. The impact of the improved physical layer performance that results from the use of multiple antennas is discussed in terms of increased throughput on the down-link and reduced transmit power on the uplink.
