Abstract

In this letter, the performance of distributed antenna arrays is characterized in cloud radio access networks with spatially random base stations (BSs). Beamforming is compared to BS selection first, and then the minimal number of BSs to meet a predefined quality of service is analyzed, where stochastic geometry is used to capture the dynamic nature of BS locations.
