In this paper, we develop an innovative approach to quantitatively characterize the performance of ultra-dense wireless networks in a plethora of propagation environments. The proposed framework has the potential of significantly simplifying the cumbersome procedure of analyzing the coverage probability and allowing the remarkable unification of single- and multi-antenna networks through compact representations... By harnessing this key feature, we develop a novel statistical machinery to study the scaling laws of wireless network densification considering general channel power distributions including the entire space of multipath and shadowing models as well as associated beamforming gain due to the use of multiple antenna. We further formulate the relationship between network density, antenna height, antenna array seize and carrier frequency showing how the coverage probability can be maintained with ultra-densification. From a system design perspective, we present a new innovative theoretical discovery stipulating that if multiple antenna BS are deployed and moved to higher frequencies, then monotonically increasing the coverage probability by means of ultra-densification is possible, and this without lowering the antenna height. Such findings are completely different from the conclusions in existing works, who suggest to lower the BS height as to leverage the potential of network densification. Simulation results substantiate performance trends leveraging network densification and antenna deployment and configuration against path loss models and signal-to-noise plus interference (SINR) thresholds. read more
