We study multiuser detection for uplink transmissions using only analog beamformers in a millimeter-wave (mm-wave) communication system under a limited scattering environment in this paper. In particular, the successive interference cancelation (SIC)-based detection at a base station (BS) that is equipped with an antenna array is considered with the outputs of analog beamformers. We employ beam selection from a codebook of analog beams for low-complexity analog beamforming in the SIC-based detection and compressive sensing (CS)-based channel estimation that is suitable for the BS that only has analog beamformers. Through simulation results, we can see that the performance of the joint analog beam selection and SIC-based detection is comparable with the performance of the SIC-based detection (with ideal digital beamforming) at the cost of more antenna elements with lower complexity.
