In this paper, the recent advances in cooperative distributed antenna transmission (CDAT) are introduced for spatial diversity and multi-user spatial multiplexing in 5G mobile communications network. CDAT is an advanced version of the coordinated multi-point (CoMP) transmission. Space-time block coded transmit diversity (STBC-TD) for spatial diversity and minimum mean square error filtering combined with singular value decomposition (MMSE-SVD) for multi-user spatial multiplexing are described under the presence of co-channel interference from adjacent macro-cells. Blind selected mapping (blind SLM) which requires no side information transmission is introduced in order to suppress the increased peak-to-average signal power ratio (PAPR) of the transmit signals when CDAT is applied. Some computer simulation results are presented to confirm the effectiveness of CDAT techniques.
