Abstract
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) act as a flying Base Station (BS) is ascertained an auspicious way to cater the problems of system coverage and capacity. There are some constraints that must be considered to set out a UAV in place of a Base Station (BS). The accessibility of a reliable wireless backhaul link is one of the aforementioned limits and it is considered in this work. The paper explores diverse sort of wireless backhauls that delivers unlike data rates, and their impact on the served users. We present a dual model network0centric’s and user0centric’s and the optimum 3 dimensional assignment of a UAV is calculated for each model. We then maximized the quantity of attended consumers and sum rates for both models. Furthermore it is preferred to lessen the UAV movements which results in increasing flying time & decreases channel variants and the performance of the network is analyzed in correspondence to the user’s translations.
