On the performance of amplifier-aware dense networks: Finite block-length analysis
Paper in proceedings, 2016

In this paper, we investigate the performance of dense Poisson-point-process-based cellular networks using finite length codewords. Taking the properties of the power amplifiers (PAs) into account, we derive the outage probability, the per-user throughput and the area spectral efficiency in different conditions. Our analysis is based on some recent results on the achievable rates of finite-length codes and we investigate the effect of the codeword length/PAs properties on the system performance. Our numerical and analytical results indicate that the inefficiency of the PAs affects the performance of dense networks substantially. Also, for a given number of information nats per codeword, there is an optimal finite codeword length maximizing the throughput.
