The bistatic backscatter architecture, with its extended range, enables flexible deployment opportunities for backscatter devices. In this paper, we study the placement of power beacons (PBs) in bistatic backscatter networks to maximize the guaranteed coverage distance (GCD), defined as the distance from the reader within which backscatter devices are able to satisfy a given quality-of-service constraint. This work departs from conventional energy source placement problems by considering the…

A new network architecture that overlays an uplink cellular network with randomly deployed PBs for powering mobiles, called a hybrid network, is proposed and it is proved that the outage constraint is satisfied so long as the product pλ<sub>b</sub><sup>α/2</sup> is above a given threshold where α is the path-loss exponent.
Non-Uniform Deployment of Power Beacons in Wireless Powered Communication Networks
An optimization problem is formulated to minimize total average power consumption while satisfying BS average transmission power constraint and coverage probability threshold and the numerical results show that the power consumption of the proposed scheme is reduced significantly compared to PB-only WPCNs.
Wireless Power Transfer via mmWave Power Beacons With Directional Beamforming

Multistatic Scatter Radio Sensor Networks for Extended Coverage
It is found that: 1) diversity order, BER, and tag location-independent performance bounds of multistatic architecture outperform monostatic; 2) energy outage due to radio frequency (RF) harvesting for passive tags, is less frequent inMultistatic than monstatic architecture; and 3) multistatics coverage is higher than monostatics.
