Abstract

The TSUNAMI (II) (Technology in Smart antennas for UNiversal Advanced Mobile Infrastructure-Part 2) project is on investigation into the application of adaptive antenna technology for use in future generation mobile communications systems. The key aims of the project are to study the complexity versus increase in system capacity and coverage extension that can be achieved over the existing, non-adaptive networks. This paper presents some of the initial results from the TSUNAMI (II) macrocellular field trials currently being performed or the Orange Testbed in Almondsbury, Bristol. Field trial results obtained using spatial reference beamforming (SRB) are presented along with tests performed with the calibration sub-system. The results of these tests demonstrate the successful integration and operation of the TSUNAMI (II) system
