In this paper, a multiple cluster-based transmission diversity scheme is proposed for asynchronous joint transmissions (JT) in private networks, in which the use of multiple clusters or small cells is preferable to increase transmission speeds, reduce latency, and bring transmissions closer to the users. To increase the spectral efficiency and coverage, and to achieve flexible spatial degrees of freedom, a distributed remote radio unit system (dRRUS) is installed in each of the clusters. When the dRRUS is disposed in the private environments, it will be associated with multipath-rich and asynchronous delay propagation. Taking into account of this unique environment of private networks, asynchronous multiple signal reception is considered in the development of operation at the remote radio units to make an intersymbol interference free distributed cyclic delay diversity (dCDD) scheme for JT to achieve a full transmit diversity gain without full channel state information. A spectral efficiency of the proposed dCDD-based JT is analyzed by deriving the closed- form expression, and then compared with link-level simulations for non-identically distributed frequency selective fading over the entire private network.
