Base Station Deployment and Dynamic User Association for 5G Millimeter Wave Cellular Networks
DescriptionThis project aims to develop novel techniques for next generation 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) cellular networks that will: 1. Develop an mmWave cellular network simulator based on a geometric stochastic model under real Hong Kong street maps. 2. Using the simulator, design optimal base-station deployment techniques that meet 5G high data rate and low latency requirements. 3. Using the simulator, develop techniques for dynamic user association and traffic off-loading across macro-cell and small-cell base stations. R&D Methodology We will propose a high-fidelity mmWave cellular network simulator. Our simulator will enable the use of Hong Kong street maps and dynamic user-association techniques based on the computationally-efficient network analytical tools, developed by the Project Coordinator (PC). It will also exploit the recently devised 5G base-station deployment techniques on urban street maps under the collaboration with Co-PC. Impact and Benefits The project outcomes will: 1. Enable early exploration and evaluation of 5G technologies that can be potentially put as a reference model for facilitating operators to use it to develop further advanced systems. 2. Resolve the trade-off between the operational cost and network performance. 3. Promote a "smarter" city, driven by the energy efficient 5G networks.
