This paper investigates traffic flow modeling issue in multi-services oriented unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-enabled wireless networks, which is critical for supporting future various applications of such networks. We propose a general traffic flow model for multi-services oriented UAV-enable wireless networks. Under this model, we first classify the network services into three subsets: telemetry, Internet of Things (IoT), and streaming data. Based on the Pareto distribution, we then partition…
