November 2019 doc.: IEEE 802.11-19/1934 Precoding performance using implicit channel estimation Date: 2019-11-08 Authors: Submission Slide 1 Sigurd Schelstraete, Quantenna November 2019 doc.: IEEE 802.11-19/1934 Introduction Current 802.11 sounding protocols are based on sounding followed by explicit sounding feedback These explicit protocols can potentially take up a lot

of airtime Implicit sounding [1, 2] has been suggested as a way to reduce sounding overhead Overhead of different schemes (implicit vs. explicit) was compared in [4] Submission Slide 2 Sigurd Schelstraete, Quantenna November 2019 doc.: IEEE 802.11-19/1934 Introduction An important question is how well implicit channel estimation (CE) performs when used with precoding This submission looks at precoding performance using either implicit or explicit channel estimates We use a combination of measured and simulation results

Submission Slide 3 Sigurd Schelstraete, Quantenna November 2019 doc.: IEEE 802.11-19/1934 Implicit channel estimation Channel estimate obtained for reverse channel Beamformer may request BFee to send NDP Or wait for an ad-hoc opportunity BFer estimates reverse channel from the NDP (or other packet) BFer adjusts reverse channel with calibration coefficients and uses it as an approximation of the forward channel Submission Slide 4

Minor degradation relative to 8-stream feedback NOTE: impact of overhead not considered in assessing performance Submission Slide 14 Sigurd Schelstraete, Quantenna November 2019 doc.: IEEE 802.11-19/1934 Conclusion Implicit channel estimation with calibration is a good candidate method for reducing sounding overhead Submission Slide 15 Sigurd Schelstraete, Quantenna November 2019
