  title={Modified Vector Quantization for Small-Cell Access Point Placement with Inter-Cell Interference},
  author={G. R. Gopal and Elina Nayebi and G. Villardi and B. Rao},
In this paper, we explore the small-cell uplink access point (AP) placement problem in the context of throughputoptimality and provide solutions while taking into consideration inter-cell interference. First, we briefly review the vector quantization (VQ) approach and related single user throughput-optimal formulations for AP placement. Then, we investigate the smallcell case with multiple users and expose the limitations of mean squared error based VQ for solving this problem. While the Lloyd… Expand

An AP location design algorithm is presented in an alternative small-cell system in which each AP serves only one user and improves the 95%-likely and minimum rates over the Lloyd algorithm, while the latter remains an attractive approach due to its simplicity and good performance. Expand

TDD Massive MIMO Systems: Channel Estimation, Power Optimization, and Access Point Location Design
The downlink capacity lower bounds for conjugate beamforming and zero-forcing precoders in cell-free systems are derived and multiple semi-blind channel estimation techniques based on the expectation-maximization algorithm are developed by considering different priors on data symbols. Expand
