Comparison of Massive MIMO and Small Cells in HetNet with LoS and NLoS Transmissions

We develop a framework for downlink heteroge- neous cellular networks with line-of-sight (LoS) and non-line- of- sight (NLoS) transmissions. Using stochastic geometry, we derive a tight approximation of the achievable downlink rate that enables us to compare the performance between densifying small cells and expanding base station (BS) antenna arrays… CONTINUE READING
