The present document is related to the technical report of the study item "Study on Elevation Beamforming/Full-Dimension (FD) MIMO for LTE". The purpose of this TR is to help TSG RAN WG1 to understand the performance
benefit of standard enhancements targeting two-dimensional antenna array operation with 8 or more transceiver units
(TXRUs) per transmission point.
This study item is the follow-up to TR 36.873 and it will take into account the findings on 3D channel model in
This activity involves the Radio Access work area of the 3GPP studies and has impacts both on the Mobile Equipment
and Access Network of the 3GPP systems.
This document is intended to gather all information and draw a conclusion on way forward.
This document is a "living" document, i.e. it is permanently updated and presented to TSG-RAN meetings.
