Density-aware cell zooming

Ultra-dense deployments and mobile cells significantly change cellular networking paradigm. Infrastructure and topology of cellular networks become dynamic as opposed to legacy systems where the infrastructure is assumed to be stationary. As topology morphs, base station or user density of networks also change impacting the performance in terms of resource utilization and quality of service. To increase network capacity, preserve coverage and conserve energy, network density should be considered in communication stacks to make the network density-aware and -adaptive. In this work, we analyze the impact of density on network outage in cellular networks. We propose a novel cell zooming technique at run-time considering network outage and density jointly with a three-dimensional base station density estimator.
