This paper describes the implementation and performance of three communication schemes on a DSP-based MIMO test-bed. A multicell scenario with two basestations and two users in the same room is evaluated. Eigenbeamforming with and without interference pre-whitening at both transmitter and receiver is compared with SISO multicell communication. Experimental results show that the gain from using interference pre-whitening is significant. The BER performance of beamforming without intercell interference suppression is only marginally better than single antenna communication. The paper also presents the implementation of synchronization, equalization, frequency offset estimation and decision directed beamforming mismatch compensation.
