Cooperative Communications in very large cellular Networks

Abstract : Recent studies have set the problem of base station cooperation within the framework of stochastic geometry, where the irregularity of the base station positions can be considered. Some authors study the case when the user can dynamically choose the set of stations cooperating for its service. This assumption is not realistic. Instead, other authors propose to form the groups in a static way. To be optimal, these static methodologies should consider proximity between the base stations to form the groups. We propose a grouping method based on the nearest neighbor model. We allow the formation of singles and pairs of nodes. We derive structural characteristics for these two processes and analyse the resulting interference fields. When the node positions are modelled by a Poisson point process, the processes of singles and pairs are not Poisson, complicating the corresponding analysis. The performance of the original model, however, can be approximated by the superposition of two Poisson point processes. Numerical evaluation shows coverage gains from different signal cooperation that can reach up to $15\%$, compared with the standard noncooperative case. For the cooperation to be meaningful, each station in a group should have sufficient resources to share, besides being close to each other. Thus, we redefine the nearest neighbors with a metric. The results of our analysis illustrate that cooperation gains strongly depend on the distribution of the available resources over the network.
