In this paper, we consider a relative received link power (RRLP)-based coordinated multi-point (CoMP) joint transmission (JT) in the multi-tier ultra-dense networks (UDN). In this CoMP scheme, we identify the cooperating base stations (BSs) by comparing the average received link power (ARLP) of the neighbouring BSs with respect to the BS having the strongest ARLP (i.e., the main link BS) to a user. To analyze the performance of this CoMP scheme in the downlink multi-tier UDN, we first approximate the received signal power distribution, and derive the coverage probability using stochastic geometry. After revisiting the area spectral efficiency (ASE) to make it more suitable for CoMP transmission in UDN, we also analyze the ASE and the network energy efficiency (NEE). Using simulations, we validate the derived coverage probability, and investigate the CoMP performance in multi-tier UDN. Our simulations show that the RRLP-based CoMP scheme can outperform the fixed number of strongest BS-based CoMP scheme in the high BS density regime. Our study of the NEE performance reveals that not only the RRLP-based CoMP scheme is more efficient than conventional non-CoMP transmission scenario, but also its NEE performance improves with the average number of cooperating BSs. © 2002-2012 IEEE.
