Introduction of an Efficiency Metric for Device-to-Device Communication in Cellular Networks


Device-to-Device (D2D) communication is the latest of a series of attempts to combine cellular and ad-hoc networks and is seen as a promising concept in the wireless research community. However, the commonly used evaluation metrics for optimization do not capture the expected advantages of D2D. In this paper, a flow-based resource efficiency is defined and… (More)
