We consider a multi-cell Massive MIMO system in a line-of-sight (LoS) propagation environment, for which each user is served by one base station, with no cooperation among the base stations. Each base station knows the channel between its service antennas and its users, and uses these channels for precoding and decoding. Under these assumptions we derive explicit downlink and uplink effective SINR formulas for maximum-ratio (MR) processing and zero-forcing (ZF) processing. We also derive formulas for power control to meet pre-determined SINR targets. A numerical example demonstrating the usage of the derived formulas is provided.
