8 SUMMARY AND OPEN ISSUES The DIV and DOF calculation for system-dependent wideband directional channels in a generalized DAS has been presented in this chapter. Starting with a degenerate SCSB channel and perfect receiving conditions, the analysis is extended to more general scattering and receiver-operating scenarios. The utility of the proposed methodology is demonstrated by presenting various numerical examples to provide insight into the impact of signal power spectra on the DIV and DOF estimates.
