Mobile network connectivity analysis for device to device communication in 5G network

Ahmed Laguidi, Tarik Hachad, Lamiae Hachad


Since long term evolved release 14 (LTE R14), the device to device (D2D) communications have become a promising technology for in-band or out-band mobile communication networks. In addition, D2D communications constitute an essential component of the fifth-generation mobile network (5G). For example, to improve capability communication, reduce the power dissipation, reduce latency within the networks and implement new applications and services. However, reducing the congestion in D2D communications and improving the mobile network connectivity are the essential problems to propose these new applications or services. This paper presents new solutions to reduce the congestion of devices around a base station and improve the performance of the D2D network; in terms of the number of connected devices or user equipment (UE). The simulation results show that our proposed solution can improve the network capacity by doubling the number of connected devices (or UE) and reducing the congestion. For this reason, our proposition makes it possible to reduce the financial cost by reducing the cost of deploying equipment. For example, instead of using two base stations, we can use only one station to connect the same number of devices.
