We consider an optimal cache-placement-and-delivery-policy using Network-level Orthogonal Multipoint Multi-casting (OMPMC) for wireless networks. The placement of files in caches of Base Station (BS) is based on a probabilistic model, with controlled cache placement probabilities. File delivery is based on
multipoint multicast and network-based orthogonal transmission; all BSs in the network caching a file transmit it synchronously in dedicated radio resources. If the average signal-to-noise ratio associated to a file at a requesting user is less than a threshold, the request is in outage. We derive a closed-form expression for the outage probability for a network modeled as a Poisson Point Process. An optimal caching policy is solved from an optimization problem, and compared to a threshold-based policy, suboptimal partial solutions, and single-point cache delivery. Simulation results show that exploiting OMPMC with optimal cache and
bandwidth allocation significantly improves the overall outage probability as compared to single point delivery.
