This paper presents a comparison of the theoretical outage capacity and link-level simulation results of selected multi antenna techniques for HSDPA. Diversity schemes, covering both transmit and receive diversity methods with and without channel state information at the transmitter were simulated. A moderate difference between the link-level simulation results and the theoretical outage results is observed. An almost optimal increase in diversity order and array gain is achieved by all investigated HSDPA schemes when compared to theoretical channel capacity gains.
