Abstract

With the growth of wireless transmission rate on user terminals, the backhaul network capacity becomes a bottleneck for improving the performance of future 5G ultra-dense cellular networks. Based on the wireless multi-hop relay technology, the backhaul network capacity of 5G ultra-dense cellular networks with multi-gateways is analyzed in this paper. Moreover, a minimum average hop number (MAN) algorithm is developed to improve the backhaul network capacity and energy efficiency of wireless backhaul networks for 5G ultra-dense cellular networks. Simulation results indicate there exist a stationary backhaul network capacity and a maximum energy efficiency of wireless backhaul networks when the density of small cell BSs is larger than the specified threshold.
