This work combines the techniques of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antennas and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) to deliver high-capacity high-data-rate wireless communications over broadcast time dispersive frequency selective fading channels. For broadcast channels, multiple communications can occur at the same frequency subcarrier and time slot from one base station (BS) to many mobile stations (MS). To realize this, we develop a so-called orthogonal space division multiplexing (OSDM) scheme to decompose per-subcarrier channel into many uncoupled single-user spatial modes. In particular, the scheme is modified to improve its robustness to the channel mismatches arising from pilot-aided channel estimation and Doppler spread. Simulation results reveal that following the ESTI HiperLAN II parameters; our proposed scheme can achieve good performance with four simultaneous downlink users at Doppler spread of 40 Hz, which corresponds to mobile moving at speed of 8.5 km/h communicating at 5 GHz.
