Convolution-Based Placement of Wireless
Base Stations in Urban Environment
Mansour A. Aldajani, Member, IEEE
Abstract--In this paper, we introduce a novel approach for computing
the number, location, and transmission powers of wireless base stations in
a 2-D urban setup. The new approach utilizes 2-D convolution to extract
the supply­demand correlation. Available efficient methods for computing
the convolution are then used to substantially reduce the complexity of the
solution. The proposed approach enables network designers to choose
arbitrary antenna propagation and radio demand patterns using a simple
color-coding mechanism. Simulations of the proposed algorithm show its
efficiency and flexibility in solving the placement problem. In this paper, we
consider only the coverage planning. Consequently, the technique in this
paper is useful in networks that operate with time-division multiple-access
technology. However, the work can be extended to consider simultaneous
coverage and frequency planning.
Index Terms--Base station (BS), cell planning, convolution, placement,
wireless communications.
