Abstract : This paper studies the effect of bandwidth partitioning (BWP) on the reliability and delay performance in infrastructureless wireless networks. The reliability performance is characterized by the density of concurrent transmissions that satisfy a certain reliability (outage) constraint and the delay performance by so-called local delay, defined as the average number of time slots required to successfully transmit a packet. We concentrate on the ultrareliable regime where the target outage probability is close to 0. BWP has two conflicting effects: while the interference is reduced as the concurrent transmissions are divided over multiple frequency bands, the signal-to-interference ratio (SIR) requirement is increased due to smaller allocated bandwidth if the data rate is to be kept constant. Instead, if the SIR requirement is to be kept the same, BWP reduces the data rate and in turn increases the local delay. For these two approaches with adaptive and fixed SIR requirements, we derive closed-form expressions of the local delay and the maximum density of reliable transmissions in the ultrareliable regime. Our analysis shows that, in the ultrareliable regime, BWP leads to the reliability-delay tradeoff.
