Title
(EN) VIRTUAL CONCENTRIC CELLS BASED ON ACTIVE ANTENNAS IN A WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
(FR) CELLULES CONCENTRIQUES VIRTUELLES BASÉES SUR DES ANTENNES ACTIVES DANS UN SYSTÈME DE COMMUNICATION SANS FIL
Abstract
(EN)
A base station within a network for providing ATG wireless communication in various cells may include a first antenna array, a base station unit and a remote radio head disposed between the base station unit and the first antenna array. The first antenna array defines a plurality of first sectors having respective widths defined in azimuth. Each of the first sectors includes a first sector floor and a first sector ceiling at respective elevation angles such that combining first sector floors and first sector ceilings creates at least a portion of a respective first base station conical cell centered at the first base station. The first base station is configured to define additional first base station conical cells at respective elevation angles between the first sector floor and the first sector ceiling. The remote radio head receives location information indicative of a location of an aircraft to enable the remote radio head to form a steerable beam in both azimuth and elevation angle at the first antenna array toward the aircraft.

Une station de base au sein d'un réseau servant à assurer une communication air-sol sans fil dans diverses cellules peut comprendre un premier réseau d'antennes, une unité de station de base et une tête radio distante disposée entre l'unité de station de base et le premier réseau d'antennes. Le premier réseau d'antennes définit une pluralité de premiers secteurs présentant des largeurs respectives définies en azimut. Chacun des premiers secteurs comprend un plancher de premier secteur et un plafond de premier secteur à des angles respectifs d'élévation de telle façon que la combinaison des planchers de premiers secteurs et des plafonds de premiers secteurs crée au moins une partie d'une cellule conique respective de première station de base centrée au niveau de la première station de base. La première station de base est configurée pour définir des cellules coniques supplémentaires de première station de base à des angles respectifs d'élévation entre le plancher de premier secteur et le plafond de premier secteur. La tête radio distante reçoit des informations de position indicatives d'une position d'un avion pour permettre à la tête radio distante de former un faisceau orientable à la fois en azimut et en angle d'élévation au niveau du premier réseau d'antennes en direction de l'avion.
