Coverage Probability Analysis of D2D Communication Based on Stochastic Geometry Model

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 571)


Relaying is a common application of D2D communication, which optimizes system capacity and increases the coverage of mobile cellular networks on shared downlink resources. We established a network model of cellular base-stations and adopted the theory of stochastic geometry. Based on the model, the coverage probability analysis of the network is analyzed to select a specific user as the relay node, and the relay point uses the forwarding strategy of the decoding and forwarding. Subsequently, D2D communication can help the edge user to communicate with the base-station. The coverage probability expression of the downlink cellular network is defined, then the coverage probability of the cellular link, the base-station to the relay link, and the relay to the edge user link are derived. Simulation results show that with the increasing of density of the macro base-stations, the coverage probability of the whole network will increase and the final coverage probability will become saturated.
