Abstract

The Wyner model has been extensively used in the literature for analysing cellular networks. Recent studies show that when compared with a grid-based model, this simple model fails to capture key features of a cellular network under different scenarios. Without increasing complexity, a linear network model which uses an average user distance and considers a non-uniform user distribution scenario within cells is proposed. Simulation results show that despite the simplicity, the proposed model can provide a close insight when compared with a grid-based model.
