Cell-Free massive MIMO (mMIMO) offers promising features such as higher spectral efficiency, higher energy efficiency and superior spatial diversity, which makes it suitable to be adopted in beyond 5G (B5G) networks. However, the original form of Cell-Free massive MIMO requires each AP to be connected to CPU via front haul (front-haul constraints) resulting in huge economic costs and network synchronization issues. Radio Stripe architecture of cell-free mMI-MO is one such architecture of

In this paper, we propose DNN Based Parallel Decoding in Radio Stripe (DNNBPDRS) to decode the symbols of User Equipments (UEs) in the uplink in a parallel fashion to reduce computational complexity by reducing delay in processing. Moreover, to solve the issue of Access Point (AP) selection in radio stripe networks, we propose a Channel link-based AP selection (CLBAPS) algorithm to choose the best APs in terms of channel link quality. The proposed DNNBPDRS framework not only improves Symbol Error Rate (SER) performance when compared to counterparts but is also proved to be comparatively far lesser computational complex. Moreover, the numerical result indicates the proposed AP selection algorithm CLBAPS performs better than random selection of AP in radio stripe networks.
