He has served as Secretary for IEEE Wireless Communications Technical Committee. He is an elected member of SPCOM Technical Committee of IEEE Signal Processing Society. He also serves on the organizing committee of the IEEE ICASSP 2016, Shanghai and the IEEE GLOBECOM 2017, Singapore. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and Fellow of the IET. He is also an IEEE Communications Society Distinguished Lecturer.
Massive MIMO has been viewed as a promising PHY technical solution for 5G cellular networks. The main challenge of using large number of antennas is the high cost of radio frequency (RF) chains. Antenna switch enables multiple antennas to share a common RF chain. It also offers an additional spatial dimension, i.e., antenna index, which can be utilized for data transmission via both signal space and spatial dimension. In this talk, we present a Huffman coding based adaptive spatial modulation that generalizes both conventional spatial modulation and transmit antenna selection. Through Huffman coding, the transmit antennas can be activated with different probabilities. The optimal antenna activation probability is derived to maximize the Shannon capacity. When the input is discrete QAM signals, the optimal antenna activation probability is derived through minimizing symbol error rate. Numerical results show that the proposed Huffman coded spatial modulation offers considerable performance gains over conventional spatial modulation or transmit antenna selection.
