Green last mile: how fiber-connected massively distributed antenna systems can save energy

  title={Green last mile: how fiber-connected massively distributed antenna systems can save energy},
  author={Alireza Attar and Haoming Li and Victor C. M. Leung},
  journal={IEEE Wireless Communications},
We introduce a novel last-mile architecture that integrates the advantages of a distributed antenna system with centralized processing capability, connected through an optical fiber medium. The proposed broadband wireless access with fiber-connected massively distributed antenna system (BWA-FMDA) is capable of enhancing spectral efficiency of the network through coordinated multipoint transmissions at the femtocell scale. Furthermore, by shortening the lastmile communication link and lowering… CONTINUE READING
