Abstract: This thesis addresses and identifies outstanding challenges associated with the Multi user massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MU massive MIMO) transmission, whereby various system scenarios have been considered to tackle these challenges. First, for a single cell scenario, the uplink effective capacity under statistical exponent constraints, the asymptotic error and outage probabilities in a multi user massive MIMO system are provided. The proposed approach establishes closed form expressions for the aforementioned metrics under both perfect and imperfect channel state information (CSI) scenarios. In addition, expressions for the asymptotically high signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) regimes are established. Second, the statistical queueing constraints, pilot contamination phenomenon and fractional power control in random or irregular cellular massive MIMO system are investigated, where base station locations are modelled based on the Poisson point process. Specifically, tractable analytical expressions are developed for the asymptotic SIR coverage, rate coverage and the effective capacity under the quality of service statistical exponent constraint. Laplace transform of interference is derived with the aid of mathematical tools from stochastic geometry. Simulation outcomes demonstrate that pilot reuse impairments can be alleviated by employing a cellular frequency reuse scheme. For example, with unity frequency reuse factor, we see that 40% of the total users have SIR above −10.5dB, whereas, with a reuse factor of 7, the same fraction of users have SIR above 20.5dB. In addition, for a certain parameters setting, the coverage probability in the lower 50th percentile can be maximized by adjusting power compensation fraction between 0.2 and 0.5. Also, for SIR threshold of 0dB, allocating 0.25 fraction of uplink transmit power can achieve approximately 6% improvement in coverage probability in the cell edge area compared to constant power policy and about 14% improvement compared to the full channel-inversion policy. Third and last, motivated by the powerful gains of incorporating small cells with macro cells, a massive MIMO aided heterogeneous cloud radio access network (H-CRAN) is investigated. More specific, based on Toeplitz matrix tool, tractable formulas for the link reliability and rate coverage of a typical user in H-CRAN are derived. Numerical outcomes confirm the powerful gain of the massive MIMO for enhancing the throughput of the H-CRAN while small remote radio heads (RRH cells) are capable of achieving higher energy efficiency.
