Performance Comparison of Uplink WLANs with Single-User and Multi-User MIMO Schemes
— In this paper, we compare the performance of wireless local area networks (WLANs) with single-user MIMO (SU-MIMO) and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) in terms of collision probability, average throughput, and delay. In the SUMIMO scheme, multiple antennas are used for transmitting multiple data streams of a single user and this MIMO technique increases link capacity at physical (PHY) layer. In the MUMIMO scheme, however, multiple antennas at different users are used for transmitting data streams of multiple users. The MU-MIMO scheme reduces the collision probability at medium access control (MAC) layer and increases the link capacity. Both MIMO schemes yield different collision, throughput, and delay performance at the MAC layer of WLANs. Numerical results show that the MU-MIMO scheme yields lower collision probability and shorter delay performance than the SUMIMO scheme. Furthermore, the SU-MIMO scheme yields better throughput performance for high SNR values and a small number of conten...
