Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR UPLINK PRECODING IN A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
System and method for uplink precoding in a communication system. In one embodiment, an apparatus (120, 300) is operable in a communication system (100) and includes processing circuitry (310) configured to identify an antenna element (240) of a user equipment (110, 200) to disregard for uplink precoding, and provide an instruction 10 to direct the user equipment (110, 200) to remove an antenna port (250) associated with the antenna element (240) from a codebook employed by the user equipment (110, 200) to precode a communication within the communication system (100).
