Performance of Multicell Joint Processing Planar Cellular Uplink in the Presence of Relay Nodes

In this paper, the authors compare the uplink performance of various deployment scenarios in the planar (hexagonal) cellular system where the received signals at multiple cells are jointly processed by a central processor. A mathematical model of the planar cellular system is presented and its performance metric is based on information theoretic sum rate, and group rate share. The system deployment is as follows; the density of the base station is decreased, relay node replaces alternate base stations and in the last scenario, alternate bases stations are removed while the left over base stations are equipped with an additional antenna.
