Abstract

The Fifth Generation (5G) mobile communication standard is expected to come on-line in 2020. Among the performance requirements of 5G, stands out the capacity, that is expected to be 1000-fold of the Fourth Generation (4G). Several technologies have been considered to achieve this goal, among them Full Duplex communications. This paper analyzes the performance of a Full Duplex multi-hop wireless network combined with directional and omnidirectional antennas. Several performance metrics were considered to evaluate the performance of the network: throughput, capacity, block and drop probability. The Markovian model presented here considers buffers in the network nodes and is an extension of a simpler model previously presented in [14], in which no buffer was considered.
