Equivalence and Comparison of Heterogeneous Cellular Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors consider a general heterogeneous network in which, besides general propagation effects (shadowing and/or fading), individual base stations can have different emitting powers and be subject to different parameters of Hata-like pathloss models (path-loss exponent and constant) due to, for example, varying antenna heights. They assume also that the stations may have varying parameters of, for example, the link layer performance (SINR threshold, etc). By studying the propagation processes of signals received by the typical user from all antennas marked by the corresponding antenna parameters, they show that seemingly different heterogeneous networks based on Poisson point processes can be equivalent from the point of view a typical user.
