Abstract
Small cell base stations (SBSs) and multiple antennas are seen as fundamental technologies in the emergence of the next generation [i.e., 5th generation (5G)] of cellular wireless technology. This paper provides a comprehensive survey of literature relating to the applications and challenges associated with using multiple antennas in SBSs. The use of multiple antenna techniques in conventional wireless base stations has undergone much study and is widespread. With heterogeneity in current networks and a furthering of this theme together with greater densification expected in 5G systems, their use in SBSs is at an evolutionary stage. In this paper, unique design ...
