Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MULTICARRIER COVERAGE DIVERSITY
Abstract:
Methods and apparatus are described for overcoming interference in a multicarrier communication system by applying different antenna configurations to each carrier in a multi-carrier base station based on channel conditions specific to the carrier. Each carrier may be assigned to a different antenna element configuration, each configuration providing a different coverage area. Different portions of a data stream may be transmitted simultaneously via each carrier, the amount of data in each portion of the data stream being defined based on the channel conditions.
