Hybrid connectivity restoration in wireless sensor and actor networks

Wireless sensor and actor networks are becoming more and more popular in the recent years. Each WSAN consists of numerous sensors and a few actors working collaboratively to carry out specific tasks. Unfortunately, actors are prone to failure due to harsh deployment environments and constrained power, which may break network connectivity resulting in disjoint components. Thus, ...

Vector bin-and-cancel for MIMO distributed full-duplex

In a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) full-duplex network, where an in-band full-duplex infrastructure node communicates with two half-duplex mobiles supporting simultaneous up- and downlink flows, the inter-mobile interference between the up- and downlink mobiles limits the system performance. We study the impact of leveraging an out-of-band side channel between mobiles in such ...

Compressive cyclostationary spectrum sensing with a constant false alarm rate

Spectrum sensing is a crucial component of opportunistic spectrum access schemes, which aim at improving spectrum utilization by allowing for the reuse of idle licensed spectrum. Sensing a spectral band before using it makes sure the legitimate users are not disturbed. To that end, a number of different spectrum sensing method have been developed in the literature. Cyclostationary ...

Interference management with mismatched partial channel state information

We study the fundamental limits of communications over multi-layer wireless networks where each node has only limited knowledge of the channel state information. In particular, we consider the scenario in which each source-destination pair has only enough information to perform optimally when other pairs do not interfere. Beyond that, the only other information available at each ...

The multiuser switched diversity (MUSwiD) selection schemes are useful in reducing the required channel estimation load in wireless networks. In this paper, we propose and evaluate the performance of cognitive amplify-and-forward (AF) MUSwiD relay networks where a cognitive user is selected among a set of users for data reception. The selection process is performed such that the ...

Artificial noise-aided biobjective transmitter optimization for service integration in multi-user MIMO broadcast channel

This paper considers an artificial noise (AN)-aided transmit design for multi-user MIMO systems with integrated services.

Performance analysis of dual-hop satellite relay networks with hardware impairments and co-channel interference

In this paper, we investigate the impact of hardware impairments on the outage performance and the instantaneous capacity of dual-hop decode-and-forward (DF) satellite relay networks in the presence of co-channel interference. Specifically, the exact closed-form expression for the outage probability and the analytical expression for the instantaneous capacity of the system are ...

Battery aging-aware energy management of green small cells powered by the smart grid

Mobile operators are deploying energy-harvesting heterogeneous networks due to their foreseen advantages such as self-sustainable capability and reduced operating expenditure, which cannot be offered by conventional grid powered communications. However, the used energy storage is subject to irreversible aging mechanisms, requiring intelligent management that considers both the ...

ATRAS: adaptive MAC protocol for efficient and fair coexistence between radio over fiber-based and CSMA/CA-based WLANs

In this paper, we propose a medium access control (MAC) protocol to allow a radio over fiber-based wireless local area network (RoF-based WLAN) to coexist with legacy carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA)-based WLANs. In RoF-based WLANs, there are long propagation delays between access points (APs) and stations (STAs). When an RoF-based WLAN uses the ...

OAI was extended to support multi-tenancy, representing diverse Virtual mobile Network ...

A method for identifying faulty cells using a classification tree-based UE diagnosis in LTE

The latest advances in wireless technologies have led to a proliferation of data mobile devices and services. As a consequence, mobile networks have experienced a significant increase in data traffic, while voice traffic has shown nearly no growth. It is therefore essential for operators to understand the data traffic behavior at the user level in order to ensure a good customer ...

Decoupled signal detection for the uplink of massive MIMO in 5G heterogeneous networks

Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are strong candidates for future fifth-generation (5G) heterogeneous cellular networks. For 5G, a network densification with a high number of different classes of users and data service requirements is expected. Such a large number of connected devices needs to be separated in order to allow the detection of the transmitted ...

We study serial distributed detection and fusion over noisy channels in wireless sensor networks (WSNs) with bathtub-shaped failure (BSF) rate of the sensors in this paper. In the previous work, we applied BSF rate to parallel topology and derived the Extension Log-likelihood Ration Test (ELRT) rule. Although ELRT is superior to traditional fusion rule without considering failed ...

Femtocaching assisted multi-source D2D content delivery in cellular networks

The influxes of diversified services and mass data lead to exponential growth of traffic load in mobile cellular networks.

We propose a line-of-sight (LOS)/non-line-of-sight (NLOS) mixture source localization algorithms that utilize the weighted block Newton (WBN) and variable step size WBN (VSSWBN) method, in which the weighting matrix is determined in the form of the inverse of the squared error or as an exponential function with a negative exponent. The proposed WBN and VSSWBN algorithms converge in ...

In this paper, we study a K-user fading multiple access channel (F-MAC), with and without an eavesdropper (Eve). In the system without Eve, we assume that each user knows only its own channel gain and is completely ignorant about the other users’ channel state. The legitimate receiver sends a short acknowledgement message Acknowledge (ACK) if the message is correctly decoded and a ...
