This paper focuses on the usage of Equalization-Based receivers for Wideband Code-Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) Multiple Input, Multiple Output (MIMO) Bell Labs Layered Space Time (BLAST)-type systems. The main receivers on trial are the Zero-Forcing and Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) algorithm-based receivers and their variants, employing Parallel interference cancellation (PIC) and Iterative Partial Cancellation (IPC) schemes. To assess its performance in an existing system, the uncoded Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) standard was considered (using solely QPSK modulation) alongside the reference UMTS environments. The BER performance is assessed both by simulation and by semi-analytical processing.
