We consider the problem of finding the Pareto front of the expected deployment cost of wireless caches in the plane and the expected retrieval cost of a client requesting data from the caches. The data is allocated at the caches according to partitioning and coding strategies. We show that under coding, it is optimal to deploy many caches with low storage capacity. For partitioning, we derive a simple relation between the cost of the cache deployment and the cost of retrieving the data from the caches. Lastly, we show that coding results in a lower Pareto front than partitioning.
