Reply To: UE throughput



you are right the maximum number of spatial streams (transmission layers) is 2 for users with 2 transmit antennas. Therefore the throughput at high SNR (>40dB) should be the same for any number of base station antennas greater or equal to 2. What you will experience however is an SNR gain when more receive antennas at the base station are exploited which originates from receive diversity. This effect is also shown in the documentation (version 1.5) Figure 1.a.
