A Stochastic Geometry Model for the Best Signal Quality in a Wireless Network

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In a wireless network composed of randomly scattered nodes, the characterization of the distribution of the best signal quality received from a group of nodes is of primary importance for many network design problems. In this paper, using shot noise models for the interference field, the authors develop a framework for analyzing this distribution. They first identify the joint distribution of the interference and the maximum signal strength. They then represent the best signal quality as a function of these two quantities. Particular practical scenarios are also analyzed in which explicit expressions are obtained.
