Discrete Event Simulation of Mobility and Spatio-Temporal Spectrum Demand
MetadataShow full item record
Realistic mobility and cellular traffic modeling is key to various wireless networking applications and have a significant impact on network performance. Planning and design, network resource allocation and performance evaluation in cellular networks require realistic traffic modeling. We propose a Discrete Event Simulation framework, Diamond - (Discrete Event Simulation of Mobility and Spatio-Temporal Spectrum Demand) to model and analyze realistic activity based mobility and spectrum demand patterns. The framework can be used for spatio-temporal estimation of load, in deciding location of a new base station, contingency planning, and estimating the resilience of the existing infrastructure. The novelty of this framework lies in its ability to capture a variety of complex, realistic and dynamically changing events effectively. Our initial results show that the framework can be instrumental in contingency planning and dynamic spectrum allocation.
