Abstract

We treat a setting in which two priority wireless service classes are offered in a given area by a drone small cell (DSC). Specifically, we consider broadband (BB) user with high priority and reliability requirements that coexists with random access machine-type-communications (MTC) devices. The drone serves both connectivity types with a combination of orthogonal slicing of the wireless resources and dynamic horizontal opportunistic positioning (D-HOP). We treat the D-HOP as a computational geometry function over stochastic BB user locations which requires careful adjustment in the deployment parameters to ensure MTC service at all times. Using an information theoretic approach, we optimize DSC deployment properties and radio resource allocation for the purpose of maximizing the average rate of BB users. While respecting the strict dual service requirements we analyze how system performance is affected by stochastic user positioning and density, topology, and reliability constraints combinations. The numerical results show that this approach outperforms static DSCs that fit the same coverage constraints, with outstanding performance in the urban setting.
