    Globally Optimal Energy Efficiency Maximization for Capacity-Limited Fronthaul Crans with Dynamic Power Amplifiers’ Efficiency
    A joint beamforming and remote radio head (RRH)-user association design for downlink of cloud radio access networks (CRANs) is considered. The aim is to maximize the system energy efficiency subject to constraints on users' quality-of-service, capacity offronthaullinks and transmit power. Different to the conventional power consumption models, we embrace the dependence of baseband signal processing power on the data rate, and the dynamics of the power amplifiers' efficiency. The considered problem is a mixed Boolean nonconvex program whose optimal solution is difficult to find. As our main contribution, we provide a discrete branch-reduce-and-bound (DBRnB) approach to solve the problem globally. We also make some modifications to the standard DBRnB procedure. Those remarkably improve the convergence performance. Numerical results are provided to confirm the validity of the proposed method.

    Energy-Efficient Bit Allocation for Resolution-Adaptive ADC in Multiuser Large-Scale MIMO Systems: Global Optimality
    We consider uplink multiuser wireless communications systems, where the base station (BS) receiver is equipped with a large-scale antenna array and resolution adaptive analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The aim is to maximize the energy efficiency (EE) at the BS subject to constraints on the users' quality-of-service. The approach is to jointly optimize both the number of quantization bits at the ADCs and the on/off modes of the radio frequency (RF) processing chains. The considered problem is a discrete nonlinear program, the optimal solution of which is difficult to find. We develop an efficient algorithm based on the discrete branch-reduce-and-bound (DBRnB) framework. It finds the globally optimal solutions to the problem. In particular, we make some modifications, which significantly improve the convergence performance. The numerical results demonstrate that optimizing jointly the number of quantization bits and on/off mode can achieve remarkable EE gains compared to only optimizing the number of quantization bits.
