Abstract

As the Internet of Things (IoT) is largely supported by wireless communication networks in unlicensed bands, there has been a proliferation of technologies that use a large variety of protocols. An ongoing challenge is how these networks can coexist given that they have different power levels, symbol periods, and access protocols. In this paper, we study the statistics of interference due to IoT networks that transmit small amounts of data. A key observation is that sets of active devices change rapidly, which leads to impulsive noise channels. Moreover, these devices operate on multiple partially overlapping resource blocks. As such, we characterize the joint distribution and propose a tractable model based on copulas. Using our copula model, we derive closed-form achievable rates. This provides a basis for resource allocation and network design for coexisting IoT networks.
