Resource allocation in a MAC with and without security via game theoretic learning

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 ...

Massive MIMO with multi-cell MMSE processing: exploiting all pilots for interference suppression

A new state-of-the-art multi-cell minimum mean square error (M-MMSE) scheme is proposed for massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) networks, which includes an uplink MMSE detector and a downlink MMSE precoder. Contrary to conventional single-cell schemes that suppress interference using only channel estimates for intra-cell users, our scheme shows the optimal way to suppress ...

In this paper, an UWB-MIMO antenna with frequency selective surface (FSS) decoupling structure is proposed. To realize antenna system miniaturization and integration, silicon material is applied as substrate. The proposed antenna becomes a very compact construction with dimension of 38.2 × 26.6 × 0.4 mm3. The proposed broadband FSS unit consists of four split rectangles and one ...

As a promising paradigm for the 5G wireless communication system, a new evolution of the cloud radio access networks has been proposed, named as fog radio access networks (F-RANs). It is an advanced socially aware mobile networking architecture to provide a high spectral and energy efficiency while reducing backhaul burden. In particular, F-RANs take full advantages of social ...

Mirror-image-based disjoint multi-paths routing algorithm for maximizing communication efficiency

The growing demands of high-speed and stable next generation 5G cellular networks become the main stream in these years. In order to overcome a bottleneck of high-speed communication which is caused by limited spectrum resources, cognitive radio (CR) network has been proposed as a promising technology in 5G networks. However, in CR networks, primary user (PU) networks lead another ...

Multichannel simultaneous uplink and downlink transmission scheme for flexible duplexing

The idea of adaptive usage of uplink frequency resources for other purposes, such as downlink data transmission, has attracted researchers for many years. As an extension of the conference paper on the same subject, this article discusses the concept of applying a multichannel simultaneous uplink and downlink transmission scheme for flexible duplexing, where the middle part of the ...

Fade statistics of \({\mathcal {M}}\) -turbulent optical links

A new and generalized statistical model, called Málaga or simply \({\mathcal {M}}\) distribution, has been derived recently to characterize the irradiance fluctuations of an unbounded optical wavefront propagating through a turbulent medium under all irradiance fluctuation conditions. The aforementioned model extends and unifies in a simple analytical closed-form expression most of ...

SNR walls in eigenvalue-based spectrum sensing

Various spectrum sensing approaches have been shown to suffer from a so-called signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)-wall, an SNR value below which a detector cannot perform robustly no matter how many observations are used. Up to now, the eigenvalue-based maximum-minimum-eigenvalue (MME) detector has been a notable exception. For instance, the model uncertainty of imperfect knowledge of the ...

Outage performance of fixed-gain and variable-gain AF full-duplex relaying in non-identical Nakagami-m fading channels

We investigate outage performance of fixed-gain and variable-gain amplify-and-forward (AF) full-duplex (FD) relaying systems under residual loop-interference (LI) in non-identical Nakagami-m fading channels. New exact outage probability expressions are derived analytically in a single-integral form by using the cumulative distribution function approach. Moreover, tight lower-bound ...

Resource allocation for spectrum-leasing based CRN with delay-sensitive traffic

In this paper, cooperative resource allocation strategies are characterized for a spectrum-leasing based cognitive radio network (CRN), where the primary system leases the licensed band to the secondary system for a fraction of time in exchange for the secondary user (SU) acting as relay. Here, both amplify-and-forward (AF) and decode-and-forward (DF) relay protocols are ...

Robust resource allocation for cognitive relay networks with multiple primary users

A robust resource allocation (RA) algorithm for cognitive relay networks with multiple primary users considering joint channel uncertainty and interference uncertainty is proposed to maximize the capacity of the networks subject to the interference threshold limitations of primary users’ receivers (PU-RXs) and the total power constraint of secondary user’s transmitter and relays. ...

Nonuniform antenna array design by parallelizing three-parent crossover genetic algorithm

Antenna plays a very important role in wireless communication. Array elements laid out nonuniformly could achieve better frequency reliability and lower sidelobe level than uniform spaced elements. Designing desirable nonuniform antenna array requires the tuning of distances between each element, excitation, amplitude, and so on. Such design problem can be solved by genetic ...

Improved symbol value selection for symbol flipping-based non-binary LDPC decoding

Symbol flipping-based hard decision decoding for non-binary low-density parity check (LDPC) codes has attracted much attention due to low decoding complexity even though the error performance of the symbol flipping decoder is inferior to that of the soft decision decoders. Standard symbol flipping decoding involves two steps, selection of the symbol position to be flipped and ...

TOA localization for multipath and NLOS environment with virtual stations

An effective geometrical method which can locate a source based on the time-of-arrival (TOA) measurements and the floor plan information is proposed in simple non-line-of-sight (NLOS) indoor environment where the multiple-bound scattering signal paths can be ignored. The novelty of our work resides in converting the NLOS problem into line-of-sight (LOS) problem based on the virtual ...

Precoding techniques can be used in multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system to assign resources such as power and information optimally. This paper is concerned with limited feedback in precoded orthogonal space time block code (OSTBC) systems, which is a precoding technique for incomplete channel information response. The conventional approach to design the precoding codebook ...

On the performance of hybrid carrier system with spectrum precoding based on WFRFT

High out-of-band (OOB) power emission has become the main shortcoming of multicarrier scheme in regard to the requirements and challenges of 5G. In this paper, two effective OOB power reduction methods, previously applied to traditional orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system, are proposed in hybrid carrier (HC) scheme based on weighted-type fractional Fourier ...

FTN multicarrier transmission based on tight Gabor frames

A multicarrier signal can be synthesized thanks to a symbol sequence and a Gabor family (i.e., a regularly time–frequency shifted version of a generator pulse). In this article, we consider the case where the signaling density is increased such that inter-pulse interference is unavoidable. Over an additive white Gaussian noise channel, we show that the ...

Dynamic time slot allocation and stream control for MIMO STDMA in ad hoc networks

Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technologies have been shown to potentially improve the performance of network. Many traditional medium access control (MAC) protocols, such as spatial time division multiple access (STDMA), may not support MIMO technologies directly and not make full use of the feature of MIMO, which may be a limitation in the practical application in ad hoc ...

Optimal spectrum access and power control of secondary users in cognitive radio networks

In future 5G communication system, radio resources can be effectively reused by cognitive radio networks (CRNs), where a lot of secondary users (SUs) are able to access the spectrum of primary users (PUs). In this paper, we analyze the optimal spectrum access and power control of SUs on multiple bands with the target of maximizing the average sum rate (ASR) of SUs. Specifically, ...

The initial process of identifying any available base station (BS) by a user equipment (UE) that wants to communicate is termed as cell search. To ensure a reliable communication, any UE has to be synchronized with the BS both in time and frequency domains. Cell search process is said to be complete once cell ID associated with long-term evolution (LTE) BS is decoded successfully. ...
