Predicting 5G: Performance Analysis of Millimeter Wave Cellular Networks

With advances in RF circuits, the era of operating cellular networks in millimeter wave (mmWave) bands is coming. The lightly licensed mmWave band offers the potential to solve the spectrum gridlock in current cellular networks. It is not clear, however, whether both high data rates and coverage in signal-to-noise-and-interference ratio (SINR) can be achieved in mmWave cellular networks; as the propagation conditions and hardware constraints become different, and prior microwave network models do not directly apply to mmWave systems.
