Outage probability formulas for cellular networks : contributions for MIMO, CoMP and time reversal features

Abstract : The implementation of cellular systems have aroused issues related to the design of cellular networks termed to as network dimensioning. It includes the coverage estimation and thetraffic analysis. Simple models and methods are required to reduce the time consumption of these two analysis. At the same time, the growing demand for higher data rates constrained by the scarcity of frequency spectrum, and the requirements in terms of power consumption reduction make the telecommunication community think about new transmission techniques moving from the classical single antenna systems to multiple antenna systems and even the newly envisaged cooperative systems. In this thesis, we provide analytical models to assess the performance of these different cellular network evolutions in terms of outage probabilities. In a first study, we consider multicellular single input single output (SISO) systems. First, we propose two accurate methods to study the joint impact of path-loss, shadowing and fast fading. This system has so far been studied either considering the only impact of path-loss and Rayleigh fading, or considering the same channel model as in our case but providing very complex outage probability expressions. Then, we provide an outage probability expression in a wideband communication context implementing the Time Reversal (TR) transmission technique considering the impact of fast fading. In a second study, we focus on multiple antenna systems. We study the performance of a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system implementing a transmit and a receivediversity schemes namely the Alamouti code and the Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC).
