Assuming a network of infinite extent, several researchers have analyzed small-cell networks using a Poisson point process (PPP) location model, leading to simple analytic expressions. The general assumption has been that these results apply to finite-area networks as well. However, do the results of infinite-area networks apply to finite-area networks? In this paper, we answer this question by obtaining an accurate approximation for the achievable signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR… CONTINUE READING
