Distributed antenna system (DAS)-aided unity frequency reuse (UFR) and fractional frequency reuse (FFR) transmission scenarios are investigated in this paper, employing the classic multiobjective of nondominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II) for maximizing cell throughput and the coverage. More specifically, coordinated multipoint (CoMP) cooperation is invoked among the distributed antennas (DAs) and the base station (BS) in support of the mobile stations (MSs) roaming at the cell edge, while considering a range of practical impairments. We demonstrate that the received signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) of non-CoMP transmissions follows the lognormal distribution by taking into account both fast fading and large-scale shadowing and path-loss effects. Our simulation results demonstrate that DAS-aided cooperation is capable of achieving a fivefold increased throughput over that of the traditional arrangement. Explicitly, an average throughput per channel of 6.61 bits/symbol may be achieved.
