Abstract
An approach to deal with the demand for increasing bandwidth and data rates from the network is to deploy an ultra-high density access network consisting of a large number of very small cells. In such a wireless network, reducing interference will contribute to meeting the targeted very-high bitrates and low latency. In this study, we evaluated the signal-to-interference ratio in an ultra-high density network consisting of atto cells operating at 3.5 GHz and integrated in floor tiles of 15 cm by 15 cm and a moving antenna attached to a robot. We observed that interference in an atto cell can be significantly reduced by altering the polarization of neighboring floor antennas. Moreover, simultaneous communication in neighboring atto cells is possible and depends on the height of the moving antenna and the mutual orientation of the neighboring cells.
