Delay-Sensitive Area Spectral Efficiency: A Performance Metric for Delay-Constrained Green Networks
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2017
This paper introduces a new metric, referred to as delay-sensitive area spectral efficiency (DASE), to analyze the performance of delay-constrained wireless networks. We study DASE in different point-to-point, spectrum sharing, interference, and Poisson-point process-based dense network configurations and with different levels of channel state information (CSI) at the transmitters. Also, we determine the optimal rates/powers optimizing DASE. Finally, we use some recent results on finite block-length codes to analyze the effect of the codewords length on the network DASE. As demonstrated, DASE is a useful metric for analyzing delay-sensitive green networks. Moreover, adaptive power allocation and partial CSI feedback are powerful tools for performance improvement in green networks.
