Abstract:Drone base stations can help safeguard coverage and provide capacity relief when cellular networks are under stress. Examples of such stress scenarios are events with massive crowds or network outages. In this paper we focus on a disaster scenario with emergence of a traffic hotspot, where agile drone positioning and load management is a critical issue. In order to address this challenge, we propose and assess a data-driven algorithm which leverages real-time measurements to dynamically optimize the 3D positio… Show more
