—The need to carry out analytical studies of wireless systems often motivates the usage of simplified models which, despite their tractability, can easily lead to an overestimation of the achievable performance. In the case of dense small cells networks , the standard single slope path-loss model has been shown to provide interesting, but supposedly too(More)
—In this paper we investigate the effect of Line-of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) propagation on the Area Spectral Efficiency (ASE) and on the energy efficiency of dense small-cell networks. We show that including both LOS and NLOS propagation in the path-loss model provides a completely different picture of the behaviours of ASE and energy(More)
This paper aims at investigating the achievable performance and the issues that arise in ultra-dense networks (UDNs), when the signal propagation includes both the Line-of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) components. Backed by an analytical stochastic geometry-based model, we study the coverage, the Area Spectral Efficiency (ASE) and the energy(More)
—Recent advances in self-interference cancellation enable radios to transmit and receive on the same frequency at the same time. Such a full duplex radio is being considered as a potential candidate for the next generation of wireless networks due to its ability to increase the spectral efficiency of wireless systems. In this paper, the performance of full(More)
—Through massive deployment of additional small cell infrastructure, Dense Small cell Networks (DSNs) are expected to help meet the foreseen increase in traffic demand on cellular networks. Performance assessment of architectural and protocol solutions tailored to DSNs will require system and network level simulators that can appropriately model the complex(More)
