In this paper, we consider a communication scenario where relay users assist nearby a pair of D2D users underlaying cellular network. In our communication scenario, we analyze not only fading channel model but also different traffic models. In order to jointly consider the impact of interference level and network traffic condition, the packet loss probability (PLP) of D2D link is carefully orchestrated from two perspectives, i.e., link outage probability and packet delivery failure probability. The closed-form expressions of them are respectively obtained based on a Rician–Rayleigh fading model and different traffic models, and then the performance of our relay-aided D2D communication scenario is evaluated by the PLP of D2D link. Finally, the PLP of D2D link with three representative traffic models including Pareto, FBM, and Poisson traffic models are compared, respectively. We believe that the proposed analytical approach can provide a useful insight into the application of traffic model in relay-aided D2D communications.
