## What is channel estimation in MIMO OFDM?

• As it is said before, to obtain large data rates and higher efficiency in advanced wireless technological applications, a combination of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) structures with the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technology can be utilized
• Standard Least Square (or LS) and Minimum Mean Square (or MMSE) estimation techniques are used in channel estimation
• The Bit Error Rate (BER) and Mean Square Error (MSE) levels are being used to analyze the quality of the MIMO-OFDM systems

For transmitters with M antennas, the other components of the channel can be obtained as follows

• Variance equals 10^(-pathloss/10)
• Where pathloss is the summation of 148.1, 37.6*log10(d) and 8*randn(1) – 10
• And d is the distance in km
• Finally, channel is calculated as equal to  sqrt(variance/2)*(randn(M,1) added to 1i*randn(M,1))

The steps involved in the 3D channel model functioning on large and small scale parameters along With the generation of Coefficients are listed below

• Large scale parameters
• Setting the network layout, scenario and the antenna parameters is the first step
• Assigning propagation conditions with respect to indoor and outdoor situations or NLoS and LoS circumstances is the second step
• Path loss calculation is the third step
• Finally the large scale parameters are generated which include AS, K, DS and SF
• Small scale parameters
• As a continuation, delays and power clusters are generated in steps
• Creating the angles of arrival and departure is the next step
• Then random ray coupling has to be performed
• Generating XPRs form the next step
• For generating Coefficients the following steps are carried out
• Initial phases are drawn
• Channel Coefficients are generated
• Shadowing and pathloss are applied

## How to estimate channels in MIMO OFDM?

• Estimating channel state information (CSI) is a major concern in wireless technologies
• CSI depicts how digital signals travel from transmitter to the receiver through several pathways at different carrier frequencies
• The base station uses orthogonal pilot signals that were sent by the user node to estimate channel length while uplink
• In case of  downlink, the base station delivers pilot signals to the user, who recognizes the anticipated downlink channel information
• Different solutions for doing CSI estimation, which typically needs significant computational burden, have indeed been devised thus far
• Such methods are not applicable for 5G wireless communications due to numerous other strategies like MIMO, massive MIMO, OFDM and millimeter-Wave being used in 5G networks
