[en] In this paper, we consider the joint coordinated beamforming and admission control design for cloud radio access networks (Cloud-RANs). Specifically, the set of multi-antenna remote radio heads (RRHs) serving each single-antenna user and the corresponding beamforming vectors are optimized to minimize the total transmission power subject to constraints on the capacity of fronthaul links, maximum powers of RRHs, and the minimum signal to interference plus noise ratios (SINRs) of users. Since the minimum SINR requirements of all users may not be guaranteed, some users may need to be removed so that all constraints can be satisfied. This NP-hard beamforming and admission control problem can be typically solved via a greedy algorithm. We instead propose a novel convex relaxation approach to formulate the underlying problem to a single-stage semi-definite program (SDP) based on which we develop an iterative algorithm to solve it. We then present numerical results to demonstrate the significant gains of the proposed algorithm compared to the greedy counterpart. Also, the impacts of the target SINR and cluster size on the number of supported users and total transmission power are also studied.
