We consider downlink communications between a Base Station (BS) and various mobile stations, equipped with multiple antennas, based on Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM). Transmission is compliant with the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard operating in Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) mode. Since ideal feedback of channel state information to the BS may be cumbersome, we consider two suboptimal channel estimation algorithms, denoted as Resource Block (RB) and Resource Block Group (RBG). Both approaches approximate the channel as constant over multiples of the fundamental LTE block, known as Physical Resource Block (PRB). Our results show that RB and RBG incur a limited performance loss, yet guaranteeing significant saving in the amount of feedback information.
