On this article about various MIMO schemes, SIMO (Single Input Multiple Output, i.e. the ) and MISO (Multiple Input Single Output) are both mentioned as possible combinations where one device has multiple antennas, but the other does not. The only difference the article mentions between the two schemes is that they shift the additional processing burden required for multiple propagation onto different ends of the link - SIMO has the receiver handle this, while MISO has the transmitter do this.
Beyond additional processing burden, are there any other performance differences between having the transmitter vs. having the receiver as the multipath device? Say I have a transceiver A, which is multipath, and another transceiver B, which is not. Assuming identical output power and sensitivity levels, if I begin transmitting from A to B, will the performance of the link be identical as if I began transmitting from B to A?
