Abstract : Over the past decade, many works on the modeling of wireless networks using stochastic geometry have been proposed. Results about probability of coverage, capacity or mean interference, have been provided for a wide variety of networks (cellular, ad hoc, cognitive, sensors, etc). These results notably allow to tune network protocol parameters. Nevertheless, in their vast majority, these works assume that the wireless network deployment is flat: nodes are placed on the Euclidean plane. However, this assumption is disproved in dense urban environments where many nodes are deployed in high buildings. In this paper, we derive the exact form of the probability of coverage for the cases where the interferers form a 3D Poisson Point Process (PPP) and an approximation for the 3D Modified Matern Process (MMP). We compare the 3D model with the 2D model and with simulation results. We comment the adequacy of each model depending on the parameters of the nodes (emission power, reception threshold, MAC protocol, etc.) and the height of the buildings in the simulations.
