We envision small cells mounted on unmanned aerial vehicles, to complement existing macrocell infrastructure. We demonstrate through numerical analysis that clustering algorithms can be used to position the airborne access points and select users to offload from the macrocells. We compare the performance of these deployments against equivalent simulated picocell deployments. We demonstrate that due to their ability to position themselves around exact user locations while maintaining a direct… CONTINUE READING
