ABSTRACT We investigate the uplink of a power-controlled multi-user distributed antenna system (DAS) with antennas deployed on a circle. Applying results from random matrix theory, we prove that for such a DAS, the per-user sum rate and the total transmit power both converge as user number and antenna number go to infinity with a constant ratio. The relationship between the asymptotic per-user sum rate and the asymptotic total transmit power is revealed for all possible values of the radius of the circle on which antennas are placed. We then use this rate-power relationship to find the optimal radius. With this optimal radius, the circular layout DAS (CL-DAS) is proved to offer a significant gain compared with a traditional colocated antenna system (CAS). Simulation results are provided, which demonstrate the validity of our analysis.

    ABSTRACT: We consider an extended wireless network with transmit and receive nodes distributed according to Bernoulli lattice processes in 1D and 2D spaces. The received signals are jointly processed at a central unit. The channel is characterized by pathloss attenuation depending on distances between transmit and receive antennas. We introduce a new class of Euclidean random matrix (ERM) to characterize the distributed antenna system (DAS). By leveraging on a suitable decomposition of these ERMs, we propose an approximated analysis of their spectra and use it to provide an analytical approximation of the capacity per unit area of the DAS.

    ABSTRACT: To minimize the outage probability of the cell (OPC) in downlink distributed antenna systems with selection transmission, a complex-encoding genetic algorithm (GA) is proposed to find the optimal locations of the antenna elements (AEs). First, the outage probability at a fixed location in the cell is investigated. Next, an analytical expression of the OPC is derived, which is a function of the AE locations. Then the OPC is used as the objective function of the antenna placement optimization problem, and the complex-encoding GA is used to find the optimal AE locations in the cell. Numerical results show that the optimal AE locations are symmetric about the cell center, and the outage probability contours are also given with the optimal antenna placement. The algorithm has a good convergence and can also be used to determine the number of AEs which should be installed in order to satisfy the certain OPC value. Lastly, verification of the OPC's analytical expression is carried out by Monte Carlo simulations. The OPC with optimal AE locations is about 10% lower than the values with completely random located AEs.

    ABSTRACT: We consider an extended wireless network with transmit and receive nodes homogeneously distributed in R 2 . The channel state information (CSI) is known at the centralized processing unit at the receiver side but not at the transmitters which transmit at equal power. By extending the definition of Euclidean random matrices (ERM) and their spectral analysis to two independent sets of points, we determine an approximated expression of the average maximum achievable rate per unit area of the system.
