NO RATINGS
Fanny,
You have made the point several times that multi-path is required for MIMO to work.  While I agree that overcoming the problems that multi-path causes is one of the strengths of MIMO, I don't understand multi-path being a requirement.  Two transmitters at one place, connected to two separate receivers at another, each pair using a separate multi-path free RF path will provide twice the throughput of one alone.  By extension, any symmetrical MIMO (2x2, 3x3, 4x4).  For a single receiver receiving packets from two transmitters (non-symmetric MIMO, 3x2, 3x4, etc., and cross channel paths) the packets have to arrive at slightly different times, either caused by different RF path lengths (multi-path) or by delaying one of the transmitters.  Perhaps the distinction should be made between multi-path and multiple RF paths.
