Optimal 3D Cell Planning: A Random Matrix Approach
This paper proposes a large system approximation of the ergodic Sum-Rate (SR) for cellular multi-user multiple-input multiple-output uplink systems. The considered system has various degrees of freedom, such as clusters of Base Stations (BSs) performing cooperative multi-point processing, randomly distributed User Terminals (UTs), and supports arbitrarily configurable antenna gain patterns at the BSs. The approximation is provably tight in the limiting case of a large number of single antenna UTs and antennas at the BSs. Simulation results suggest that the asymptotic analysis is accurate for small system dimensions.
