We develop a new tractable model for Ktier heterogeneous cellular networks (HetNets), where each base station (BS) is powered solely by a selfcontained energy harvesting module. The BSs across tiers differ in terms of the energy harvesting rate, energy storage capacity, transmit power and deployment density. Since a BS may not always have enough energy, it may need to be kept OFF and allowed to recharge while nearby users are served by neighboring BSs that are ON. We show that the fraction of time a kth tier BS can be kept ON, termed availability ρk, is a fundamental metric of interest. Using tools from random walk theory, fixed point analysis and stochastic geometry, we characterize the set of Ktuples (ρ1, ρ2,... ρK), termed the availability region, that is achievable by general uncoordinated operational strategies, where the decision to toggle the current ON/OFF state of a BS is taken independently of the other BSs. If the availability vector corresponding to the optimal system performance, e.g., in terms of rate, lies in this availability region, there is no performance loss due to the presence of unreliable energy sources. As a part of our analysis, we model the temporal dynamics of the energy level at each BS as a birthdeath process, derive the energy utilization rate, and use hitting/stopping time analysis to prove that there exists a fundamental limit on ρk that cannot be surpassed by any uncoordinated strategy.

We consider a network model where small base stations (SBSs) have caching capabilities as a means to alleviate the backhaul load and satisfy users ’ demand. The SBSs are stochastically distributed over the plane according to a Poisson point process (PPP), and serve their users either (i) by bringing the content from the Internet through a finite rate backhaul or (ii) by serving them from the local caches. We derive closedform expressions for the outage probability and the average delivery rate as a function of the signaltointerferenceplusnoise ratio (SINR), SBS density, target file bitrate, storage size, file length and file popularity. We then analyze the impact of key operating parameters on the system performance. It is shown that a certain outage probability can be achieved either by increasing the number of base stations or the total storage size. Our results and analysis provide key insights into the deployment of cacheenabled small cell networks (SCNs), which are seen as a promising solution for future heterogeneous cellular networks.

Abstract—This work analyzes the gains of cooperative relaying in interferencelimited networks, in which outages can be due to interference and fading. A stochastic model based on point process theory is used to capture the spatial randomness present in contemporary wireless networks. Using a modification of the diversity order metric, the reliability gain of selection decodeandforward is studied for several cases. The main results are as follows: the achievable spatialcontention diversity order (SCDO) is equal to one irrespective of the type of channel which is due to the ineffectiveness of the relay in the MACphase (transmit diversity). In the BCphase (receive diversity), the SCDO depends on the amount of fading and spatial interference correlation. In the absence of fading, there is a hard transition between SCDO of either one or two, depending on the system parameters. Index Terms—Cooperative relaying, interference, point process theory, selection decodeandforward I.

Abstract—We develop a new tractable model forKtier cellular networks, where each base station (BS) is solely powered by a selfcontained energy harvesting module instead of a conventional powerline source. The BSs across tiers differ in terms of the energy harvesting rate, energy storage capacity, transmit power and deployment density. Since a BS may not always have enough energy, it may need to be kept OFF and allowed to recharge while its load is served by the neighboring BSs that are ON. Using tools from random walk theory and stochastic geometry, we characterize the fraction of time each type of BS can be kept ON, termed availability, for general uncoordinated strategies, where each BS toggles its ON/OFF state independently of the others. As a part of our analysis, we model the temporal dynamics of the energy level at each BS as a birthdeath process, derive energy utilization rate for each BS class, and use hitting/stopping time analysis to study availabilities. We prove that there is a fundamental limit on the availabilities, which cannot be surpassed by any uncoordinated strategy. As a part of the proof, we construct the strategy that achieves this limit.
