How to Dimension 5G Network When Users Are Distributed on Roads Modeled by Poisson Line Process

Abstract : The fifth generation (5G) New Radio (NR) interface inherits many concepts and techniques from 4G systems such as the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplex (OFDM) based waveform and multiple access. Dimensioning 5G NR interface will likely follow the same principles as in 4G networks. It aims at finding the number of radio resources required to carry a forecast data traffic at a target users Quality of Services (QoS). The present paper attempts to provide a new approach of dimension-ing 5G NR radio resource (number of Physical Resource Blocks) considering its congestion probability, qualified as a relevant metric for QoS evaluation. Moreover, 5G users are assumed to be distributed in roads modeled by Poisson Line Process (PLP) instead of the widely-used 2D-Poisson Point Process. We derive the analytical expression of the congestion probability for analyzing its behavior as a function of network parameters. Then, we set its value, often targeted by the operator, in order to find the relation between the necessary resources and the forecast data traffic expressed in terms of cell throughput. Different numerical results are presented to justify this dimensioning approach.
