Full-Duplex Radios for Edge Caching

  title={Full-Duplex Radios for Edge Caching},
  author={Italo Atzeni and Marco Maso},
This chapter focuses on the performance enhancement brought by the addition of caching capabilities to full-duplex (FD) radios in the context of ultra-dense networks (UDNs). More specifically, we aim at showing that the interference footprint of such networks, i.e., the major bottleneck to overcome to observe the theoretical FD throughput doubling at the network level, can be significantly reduced thanks to edge caching. Fundamental results show that most of the gain, as compared to their half…

Cache-aided full-duplex small cells

This paper proposes a novel static caching model seeking to mimic a geographical policy based on local files popularity and calculates the corresponding cache hit probability, and studies the performance of the considered network in terms of throughput gain with respect to its cache-free half-duplex counterpart.

Cache-enabled small cell networks: modeling and tradeoffs

This work considers a network model where small base stations have caching capabilities as a means to alleviate the backhaul load and satisfy users’ demand, and derives closed-form expressions for the outage probability and the average delivery rate as a function of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR), SBS density, target file bitrate, storage size, file length, and file popularity.
