Table 1 Simulation parameters

From: Interference management for moving networks in ultra-dense urban scenarios

Component Configuration parameters
Buildings and streets Nine buildings 120 by 120 m with six floors (3.5 m height of each floor), see Figure 1.
  Road width 21 m (including sidewalks and parking lanes)
Macro BS Height: 5 m above the top of the middle building (see Figure 1)
  Maximum transmit power (per 10 MHz): 43 dBm
  Carrier: 800 MHz
  Bandwidth: 20 MHz
  Antenna configuration: 17 dBi gain, three sectors (one antenna per sector), 0°, 120°, and 240° with respect to the north
Micro BS Height: 10 m above the ground close to middle point of south and east walls
  Positions: see Figure 1
  Maximum transmit power (per 10 MHz): 30 dBm
  Carrier: 2.6 GHz
  Bandwidth: 80 MHz
  Cell range expansion bias: 5 dB
  Antenna configuration: 17 dBi gain, two sectors (one antenna per sector), pointing to the main street with an angle of 20° with respect to the closest wall
Moving network Full-duplex
  Speed: 50 km/h
  Height: 3.5 m above the ground
  Mobility model: public transportation vehicles enter each street through a Poisson process with an inter-arrival time of 2 min
  Maximum transmit power indoor (per 10 MHz): 10 dBm
  Carrier: 800 MHz for backhaul links, and 2.6 GHz for access links
  Bandwidth: 20 MHz for backhaul links and 80 MHz for access links
  Antenna configuration both indoor and outdoor: single antenna,
  0 dBi gain omnidirectional antenna
  Receiver noise figure: 5 dB
Outdoor UEs (macro UE, micro UE) Speed: 0 to 3 km/h
  Height: 1.5 m above the ground
  Positions: uniformly randomly dropped, 50 UEs per road
  Cell selection: based on received power with 5 dB CRE bias for micro cells
  Receiver noise figure: 9 dB
VUEs Height: 1.5 m above the ground
  Position: uniformly randomly dropped inside a vehicle
  Number of VUEs in each vehicle: 1) uniformly from the interval
  [1, 50]; 2) 25 VUEs per vehicle
  Cell selection: 1) same as macro UEs (baseline case); 2) always connect to the MN of their own vehicles (other cases)
  Receiver noise figure: 9 dB
