A Tractable Approach to Coverage and Rate in Cellular Networks
TLDR
The proposed model is pessimistic (a lower bound on coverage) whereas the grid model is optimistic, and that both are about equally accurate, and the proposed model may better capture the increasingly opportunistic and dense placement of base stations in future networks.
What Will 5G Be?
TLDR
This paper discusses all of these topics, identifying key challenges for future research and preliminary 5G standardization activities, while providing a comprehensive overview of the current literature, and in particular of the papers appearing in this special issue.
Fundamentals of WiMAX: Understanding Broadband Wireless Networking
TLDR
Fundamentals of WiMAX is a comprehensive examination of the 802.16/WiMAX standard and discusses how to design, develop, and deploy equipment for this wireless communication standard.
Heterogeneous Cellular Networks with Flexible Cell Association: A Comprehensive Downlink SINR Analysis
TLDR
A tractable framework for SINR analysis in downlink heterogeneous cellular networks (HCNs) with flexible cell association policies is developed and the average ergodic rate of the typical user, and the minimum average users throughput - the smallest value among the average user throughputs supported by one cell in each tier is derived.
Modeling and Analysis of K-Tier Downlink Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
TLDR
This paper develops a tractable, flexible, and accurate model for a downlink heterogeneous cellular network (HCN) consisting of K tiers of randomly located BSs, where each tier may differ in terms of average transmit power, supported data rate and BS density.
Femtocell networks: a survey
TLDR
The technical and business arguments for femtocells are overview and the state of the art on each front is described and the technical challenges facing femtocell networks are described and some preliminary ideas for how to overcome them are given.
User Association for Load Balancing in Heterogeneous Cellular Networks
TLDR
A low-complexity distributed algorithm that converges to a near-optimal solution with a theoretical performance guarantee is provided, and it is observed that simple per-tier biasing loses surprisingly little, if the bias values Aj are chosen carefully.
Stochastic geometry and random graphs for the analysis and design of wireless networks
TLDR
This tutorial article surveys some of these techniques based on stochastic geometry and the theory of random geometric graphs, discusses their application to model wireless networks, and presents some of the main results that have appeared in the literature.
Adaptive resource allocation in multiuser OFDM systems with proportional rate constraints
TLDR
A set of proportional fairness constraints is imposed to assure that each user can achieve a required data rate, as in a system with quality of service guarantees, and a low-complexity suboptimal algorithm that separates subchannel allocation and power allocation is proposed.
Offloading in Heterogeneous Networks: Modeling, Analysis, and Design Insights
TLDR
It is shown that the optimum fraction of traffic offloaded to maximize SINR coverage is not in general the same as the one that maximizes rate coverage, defined as the fraction of users achieving a given rate.
