Carrier to interference ratio analysis in shotgun cellular systems over a generalized shadowing distribution

Shotgun cellular systems (SCSs) are wireless communication systems with randomly placed base stations (BSs) over the entire plane according to a two-dimensional Poisson point process. Such a system can model a dense cellular or wireless data network deployment, where the BS locations end up being close to random due to constraints other than optimal coverage. SCSs have been studied by considering path-loss and independent shadowing paths between BS to mobile station (MS) pairs in the channel models. In this paper, we consider correlated shadowing paths between BS to MS pairs as a most important factor, and analyze the carrier to interference ratio (CIR), in a SCS over this correlation, and determine an expression for distribution of CIR, and obtain the tail probability of the CIR.
