Abstract

In this paper, we analyse the performance of multi-beam satellite communication where each beam is paired with a single user. We consider terrestrial interference from cellular base stations (BSs) also communicating with the users in the system. BS locations are modelled as an homogeneous Poisson point process. We employ stochastic geometry tools to characterise the terrestrial interference and also analyse two user selection criteria. Finally, we analyse the coverage probability of the network. Our results show the impact of terrestrial interference on satellite communication and that the best user selection can increase the coverage probability of such systems.
