Impact of Macrocellular Network Densification on the Capacity, Energy and Cost Efficiency in Dense Urban Environment
In this paper, the authors aim to show the effect of macrocellular network densification on the capacity, energy and cost efficiency. The presented results are based on radio propagation simulations that consider macrocellular network with different inter-site distances, i.e. different site densities, and also take into account the presence of indoor receiver points by varying outdoor and indoor receiver distribution. It is observed that as a result of densifying the network, the cell spectral efficiency reduces due to increasing level of inter-cell interference.
