Abstract

In this paper, we develop a framework using tools from stochastic geometry and queuing theory to evaluate the flow-level performance of downlink cellular networks with spatio-temporal traffic. Under this framework, we first obtain the mean service rate and the non-empty probability of a scheduled user queue by solving a fixed-point equation, which captures the inherent correlation between the interference and the queue status. By leveraging these results, we then derive closed-form expressions for the mean packet throughput and its bounds, defined as the mean number of packets that can be delivered during a given time duration. Simulation results validate the accuracy of the presented analysis, which can provide useful insight on the design of cellular networks while incorporating the spatial and temporal fluctuations of traffic.
