Abstract

To meet the capacity demand of future cellular networks, which is expected to increase substantially by 2020, using mm Wave band has been suggested. Although this higher frequency band has larger amounts of spectrum and will lead to much higher capacity in 5G networks, it has some propagation constraints such as limited coverage and sensitivity to Line of Sight (LoS) blockage. A possible solution to these issues could be small cell densification combined with utilizing access points carried by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). This paper presents a performance evaluation of the UAV-assisted mmWave network in urban environments using ns-3 simulations.
