The Analysis of Indoor Wireless Communications by a Blockage Model in Ultra-Dense Networks
Paper i proceeding, 2019
In indoor environments, the performance of ultra-dense cellular networks is significantly affected by blockages, especially for ultra-high frequencies. However, previous works either ignore or simplify such effects for analysing the networks. On the basis of stochastic geometry, this paper proposes a mathematically tractable approach to analyse ultra-dense networks in indoors, which considers both the effects of wall blockages and the distance-based path loss. The effects of wall blockages are firstly investigated by modelling the walls as a Boolean scheme of straight lines on a finite plane. Then a path loss model incorporating both the blockage-based and distance-based path loss is applied to analyse the performance of indoor networks. Finally, the analytical result is validated by comparing it with Monte Carlo simulations. The simulation results also show that the optimum transmitter density is finite for indoor ultra-dense networks with blockages, although the coverage probability benefits from the increase of transmitter density.
