In-Building Distributed Antenna System (IB-DAS) has been proved to be one of the most efficient methods to provide sufficient coverage and capacity for indoor users. The target of a successful IB-DAS deployment is to guarantee the coverage as well as the capacity of the in-building areas with minimum deployment cost. The authors consider the optimal deployment of the IB-DAS based on passive DAS in this paper. Mixed Integer Programming model has been developed for the topology design of IB-DAS through the optimal installation of power splitters in order to connect all the antennas with minimum cable cost, meanwhile, the transmit power at each antenna are kept within the satisfied level for the service guarantee.
