Abstract: Aiming at the problem of massive MIMO pilot contamination, a user location information based pilot allocation scheme is proposed. The proposed scheme sorts the users and assigns pilots in accordance to the polar angle of the user’s location in the polar coordinate system with the base station of the cell as the pole. The scheme combines the characteristics of the directional large line, and by controlling the reuse distance of the pilots in a relatively long range, the goals of reducing pilot contamination is improving system reachability and speed. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme not only effectively reduce pilot contamination among users, but also improves the performance gap between different users with the improved system fairness.
