With the anticipated increase in the number of low power base stations (BSs) deployed in small cell networks, blockage effects becoming more sensitive on wireless transmissions over high spectrums, variable propagation fading scenarios make it hard to describe coverage of small cell networks. In this paper, we propose a dual-directional path loss model cooperating with Line-of-Sight (LoS) and Non-Line-of-Sight (NLoS) transmissions for the fifth generation (5G) fractal small cell networks. Based… Expand
Coverage and Handoff Analysis of 5G Fractal Small Cell Networks
The numerical results indicate that the coverage probability with the multi-directional path loss model is less than that with the isotropic path Loss model, and the association probability with long link distance increases obviously with the increase of the effect of anisotropic path loss in 5G fractal small cell networks.

Optimizing duration of energy harvesting for downlink NOMA full-duplex over Nakagami-m fading channel

Performance Impact of LoS and NLoS Transmissions in Dense Cellular Networks
The analysis demonstrates that the network coverage probability first increases with the increase of the base station (BS) density, and then decreases as the SCN becomes denser, which makes the area spectral efficiency (ASE) suffer from a slow growth or even a decrease with network densification.

Downlink Cellular Network Analysis With Multi-Slope Path Loss Models
This paper focuses on the dual-slope path loss function, which is a piece-wise power law and continuous and accurately approximates many practical scenarios, and derives the distributions of SIR, SNR, and finally SINR before finding the potential throughput scaling, which provides insight on the observed cell-splitting rate gain.

A Tractable Approach to Coverage and Rate in Cellular Networks
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. Expand

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. Expand
Analysis of Blockage Effects on Urban Cellular Networks
The distribution of the number of blockages in a link is proven to be a Poisson random variable with parameter dependent on the length of the link, and the results show that the base station density should scale superlinearly with the blockage density to maintain the network connectivity. Expand
