We analyze the impact of inter-cell mobility on data traffic performance in dense networks with small cells. To this end, a multi-class queuing system with impatience is proposed as a generic model that captures mobility through the sojourn time of users in the cell. We provide mathematical proofs for the stability and the regularity of this multi-class queuing system. We then show how the performance of a homogeneous network is amenable to the application of the generic model to a single representative cell. This model is applied to derive the throughput of both mobile and static users, along with the handover probability. Numerical evaluation and simulation results are provided to assess the accuracy of the approach; we show, in particular, that both classes of users benefit from a throughput gain induced by the opportunistic displacement of mobile users among cells.
