The 3GPP MIMO Song

MIMO Very Late Session @ TSG-RAN WG1 Meeting #56

Annex B1: M.I.M.O. (Informative)
B1.1 Scope

The following section describes the M.I.M.O. approach and is best understood in conjunction with the tune of the song “Y.M.C.A.” performed by Village People played in the background.

B1.2 Lyrics

U-E, when your channel looks fine,
I said, U-E, give the network a sign,
Which means, U-E, give a high C-Q-I,
To report what you have measured.

U-E, there is data for you,
And two codewords,
I think they may come through,
So let’s put them onto different ports
And use spatial multiplexing.

    In other words it is M-I-M-O.
    In other words it is M-I-M-O.
    You don’t need M-L-D,
    There are plenty of ways,
    Manufacturers have a choice …

    M-I-M-O.
    In other words it is M-I-M-O.
    Two antennas you need,
    Four by four is agreed,
    And your throughput can be so high!

U-E, can you see the Node-B?
Come on, U-E, should it do T-x-D?
Alamouti is a simple approach.
But you’ve got to know this one thing!

Node-B is not serving just you.
I said, Node-B, has a whole cell to do,
And at cell-edge there’s no M-I-M-O
‘Cause the S-I-N-R is low.

    You cannot always do M-I-M-O.
    You cannot always do M-I-M-O.
    Two R-x ports you have
    So you still can combine,
    And the coverage should be fine …

    M-I-M-O.
    It’s good for you to use M-I-M-O.
    Two antennas you need,
    Four by four is agreed,
    And your throughput can be so high!

U-E, if you want to transmit,
I say, U-E, MI-MO isn’t legit,
You will have to wait for L-T-E- A,
Where RAN-1 will make it okay.

That’s where the decisions are made,
And where many MI-MO sessions run late,
So that Dirk says: ‘Juho will you take care
Of this bunch of loopy people?’.

    It’s fun to standardize M-I-M-O.
    It’s fun to specify M-I-M-O.
    You don’t need M-L-D
    There are plenty of ways,
    Manufacturers have a choice …

    M-I-M-O.
    It’s fun to specify M-I-M-O.
    When your channel looks fine,
    Give the network a sign.

    M-I-M-O.
    Then just go and do M-I-M-O.
    Can you see the Node-B?
    Should it do T-x-D?

    M-I-M-O.


會議開得再晚再累,吵得再兇,3GPP 工程師的幽默感不能消失!MIMO 之歌提醒各位同志不管有多少支天線,演算再複雜,都要像青年般堅定信仰勇往直前~
