The distributed antenna system (DAS) offers significant power savings but only if the antennas are properly located. In this letter, we convert antenna location optimization to the codebook design problem. For the widely studied circular-layout DAS with uniform user distribution, we derive closed-form expressions for antenna locations that yield near-optimal performance. For more general user distribution and antenna topology, the codebook design algorithms can provide numerical optimization results with acceptable performance and low complexity.
