Quality of Service and Performance Evaluation: A Fluid Approach for Poisson Wireless Networks

Abstract : The evaluation of performance and quality of service needs the modeling of wireless networks. Among the different models usually considered, the hexagonal network is the most popular. However, it requires extensive numerical computations. The Poisson network model, for which the base stations (BS) locations form a stochastic spatial Poisson process, allows to consider a non constant distance between base stations. Therefore, it characterizes more realistically operational networks. The Fluid network model, for which the interfering BS are replaced by a continuum of infinitesimal interferers, allows to establish closed-form formula for the SINR (Signal on Interference plus Noise Ratio). This model was validated by comparison with an hexagonal network. The two models establish very close results. In this paper, we show that the Fluid network model can also be used to analyze Poisson networks. Therefore, the evaluation of quality of service and performance becomes very easy, whateverthe type of model, by using the analytical expression of the SINR established by considering the fluid model.
