The evaluation of performance and quality of service needs the modeling of wireless networks. Among the different models usually considered, the hexagonal network is the most popular. However, it requires extensive numerical computations. The Poisson network model, for which the Base Stations (BS) locations form a stochastic spatial Poisson process, allows to consider a non constant distance between base stations. Therefore, it characterizes more realistically operational networks. The fluid network model, for which the interfering BS is replaced by a continuum of infinitesimal interferers, allows to establish closed-form formula for the SINR (Signal on Interference plus Noise Ratio).
