In this paper, we investigate how a distributed antenna network (DAN) offers better throughput performance than a conventional cellular network (CN). In DAN, a group of multiple antennas are distributed in each cell of the CN in order to mitigate the adverse effect of path loss. Moreover, antenna diversity technique can make use of shadowing and multipath fading to improve the transmission performance due to a large spatial diversity gain. In this paper, we consider frequency-domain space-time block coded-joint transmit/ receive diversity (FD-STBC-JTRD) for downlink transmission of single-carrier (SC) DAN. FD-STBC-JTRD uses frequency-domain pre-equalization (pre-FDE) instead of receive FDE to keep the mobile terminal's complexity low, and achieves the full-diversity gain. We show by computer simulation that the transmit power for achieving the required throughput can be significantly reduced compared to the conventional CN.
