Reply To: UE throughput



I am afraid I don’t fully understand your question. First, in the uplink the UE transmits and the eNodeB receives which is exactly the opposite of your explanation. Second, the number of spatial streams in a MIMO transmission is limited by the minimum number of transmit and receive antennas. This means, as long as you consider an UE with only one antenna, uplink transmission with only one spatial stream (active layer) is possible.
