Capacity Analysis of Interference-Limited Wireless Networks in Three-Dimensional Space
Network capacity is defined as the total throughput (bps) of all flows in the network; Network transport capacity is defined as the sum of the products of each flow’s throughput and its transceiver distance in the network (bit *m/s).
The capacity of point-to-point wireless communication over an additive white Gaussian channel was laid out by Claude Shannon in his 1948 seminal paper (Shannon, 1948). With the state-of-the-art channel coding, e.g., turbo code, energy and bandwidth efficiency of practical point-to-point communications is pushing closer to the Shannon limit. Due to the broadcast property of the wireless channel, wireless capacity in a multipoint-to-multipoint networkedenvironment is interference limited. How to efficiently deploy the spatial utilization of wireless channel to improve the capacity of wireless networks has been a key challenging issue for several...
