Abstract:Cellular networks are important for people to contact others and access information. This is especially the case during a disaster when people try to reach emergency services and obtain information. During disasters part of the cellular network can be affected by base stations failing. To make the cellular network more resilient in the case of disasters, we must first analyse the resilience. Previous studies that analyse the resilience of cellular networks have been scarce especially for 5G. In this paper we propose a model of 5G systems that is used to analyse the current Dutch cellular network. We also create a model for the effect of high frequency waves (mmWaves) deployment and analyse the impact it would have on the resilience. We show that larger cities are more resilient for disasters and that mmWave deployment can improve the satisfaction of connected users during disaster.
