In this letter, we study multiple-input single-output joint processing (JP) systems with limited feedback where base stations exchange both channel state information and their data via ideal backhaul links. In order to optimize the sum-rate performance of the JP system, we propose a new feedback bit allocation scheme which maximizes quantization accuracy in the presence of pathloss. The quantization accuracy is formulated by the expectation of the inner product between the actual channel vector and the quantized channel vector. First, we derive the quantization accuracy as a closed form, which compensates the phase difference of two channels. Then, the maximum quantization accuracy is achieved by searching possible bit combinations. Simulation results show that the sum rate of our proposed feedback bit allocation strategy is more than twice compared to the conventional equal bit allocation method in the three cell case.
