How multi layer map to different beams in LTE Beamforming

I understand for SU-MIMO Beamforming single layer maps to all antennas with phase shift applied to create beam. Also I understand in this case all beams will be carrying same signal (say s1). But in ...

Why is LTE either FDD or TDD?

In LTE systems, up- and downlink are duplexed either using FDD or TDD. Why has this not been designed to utilize the same multiplexing technique as used for the downlink (OFDMA)? Resource blocks could ...
