Millimeter wave (mmWave) holds promise as a carrier frequency for fifth generation cellular networks. Because mmWave signals are sensitive to blockage, prior models for cellular networks operated in the ultra high frequency (UHF) band do not apply to analyze mmWave cellular networks directly. Leveraging concepts from stochastic geometry, this paper proposes a general framework to evaluate the coverage and rate performance in mmWave cellular networks. Using a distance-dependent line-of-site (LOS… 

A tractable model for rate in noise limited mmWave cellular networks

It is shown that unlike interference-limited nature of 4G cellular networks, mmWave cellular networks often tend to be noise-limited, and coverage heavily relies on a user being able to received sufficient power from the serving BS.

Coverage analysis in the uplink of mmWave cellular networks

Analysis of the coverage in the uplink of millimeter wave (mmWave) cellular networks using a distance dependent line-of-sight (LOS) probability function and per UE fractional power control (FPC) suggests that D-FPC outperforms the PL-F PC at high SINR.

The results show that the average cell size should scale with the average size of the line-of-sight region to maintain the same coverage probability in a dense network, and that the optimum base station density should be dense enough but not too dense.

It is shown that coverage in mmWave systems can rival or even exceed coverage in microwave systems assuming that the link budgets promised by existing mmWave system designs are in fact achieved and this comparable coverage translates into a superior average rate performance for mmWave Systems as a result of the larger bandwidth available for transmission.
