Abstract

We study the distribution of the received signal power in wireless networks subject to fading, path loss, and user mobility. We show that this distribution is fully characterized by a finite number of the incomplete moments of the underlying channel fading (static) distribution, when imposing mild restrictions on the random user mobility patterns. This general approach is used to determine the effect of different random mobility models such as the random waypoint model, when assuming state-of-the-art generalized line-of-sight fading models combined with multislope path-loss scenarios.
