Abstract : UNB (Ultra Narrow Band) is one of the technologies dedicated to low-power wide-area communication for IoT, currently exploited by SigFox. The specificity of UNB is the Aloha-type channel access scheme, both asynchronized in time and frequency domain. This randomness can cause partial spectral interference. In this paper, we take advantage of the spatial diversity of multiple base stations to improve the UNB performance, by using selection combining. In the presence of pathloss and spectral randomness of UNB, the channels are considered correlated. A theoretical analysis of outage probability is demonstrated by considering this correlation, for the case of 2 base stations. This methodology of probability computing can be extended to general K BSs. The diversity of multiple receivers is proved to be beneficial in enhancing the performance of UNB networks. This gain is shown to be related to the density of the base stations, as well as the distance between each of them.
