In this paper we introduce a new perspective to the implementation of wireless MIMO transmission systems with increased bandwidth efficiency. Unlike traditional spatial multiplexing techniques in MIMO systems, where additional information can be sent through the wireless channel by feeding uncorrelated antenna elements with diverse bitstreams, we use the idea of mapping diverse bitstreams onto orthogonal bases defined in the beamspace domain of the transmitting array far-field region. Using this approach we show that we can increase the capacity of wireless communication systems using compact parasitic antenna architectures and a single RF front end at the transmitter, thus paving the way for integrating MIMO systems in cost and size sensitive wireless devices such as mobile terminals and mobile personal digital assistants.
