Link Usage Probability

Multiple RNs may share a single beam using Time Division Multiplexing (TDMA) within a beam. The time slices are divided into slots, thus a (beam, slot) tuple defines a physical link. The emulation was run to determine the probability distribution of links used as a function of the number of RNs. The parameters used in the emulation are shown in Table 7 the results of which indicate the number of links and thus the number of distinct (beam, slot) tuples required. Figure 17 shows the link usage cumulative distribution function for 4 and 7 RNs.
