The characterization of the latency is essential for operation of 5G and beyond 5G cellular networks. This paper develops a spatiotemporal model to characterize latency in the downlink of large-scale cellular networks with random scheduling. In particular, the framework integrates stochastic geometry and queueing theory, to capture the interwoven interactions between the microscopic behavior of each wireless link and the macroscopic mutual interference between all links in the network. The developed framework enables a traffic-aware characterization of the transmission success probability and of the latency across the network.
