Adaptive wireless transmission strategy for maximizing energy efficiency

In a traditional wireless transmission system, studies about energy efficiency (EE) are usually for a fixed transmission mode. In this paper, we propose an adaptive wireless transmission (AWT) strategy with consideration of circuit power. In this AWT strategy, the transmission mode is switched between the direct transmission (DT) mode and the two-way relay transmission (TWRT) mode. ...

Self-interference suppression with imperfect channel estimation in a shared-antenna full-duplex massive MU-MIMO system

In this paper, we consider a shared-antenna full-duplex massive MU-MIMO system and prove that the self-interference (SI) at the base station (BS) can be suppressed, though the direct-path SI exists and the signal/SI channel is imperfectly estimated. The BS is assumed to employ zero-forcing (ZF) or maximal-ratio transmission/maximal-ratio combining (MRT/MRC) method to linearly ...

Joint power allocation for MIMO-OFDM full-duplex relaying communications

In this paper, we address the problem of joint power allocation in a two-hop MIMO-OFDM network, where two full-duplex users communicate with each other via an amplify-and-forward relay. We consider a general model in which the full-duplex relay can forward the received message in either one-way or two-way mode. Our aim is to maximize the instantaneous end-to-end total throughput, ...

Low-complexity lattice reduction algorithm for MIMO detectors with tree searching

In this paper, we propose a low-complexity lattice reduction (LR) algorithm for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) detectors with tree searching. Whereas conventional approaches are based exclusively on channel characteristics, we focus on joint optimisation by employing an early termination criterion in the context of MIMO detection. In this regard, incremental LR (ILR) was ...

Radio frequency (RF) energy transfer and harvesting techniques have recently become alternative methods to overcome the barriers that prevent the real-world wireless device deployment. For the next-generation wireless networks, they can be key techniques. In this study, we develop a novel energy-harvesting scheme for the cognitive radio (CR) network system. Using the sequential ...

A refunding strategy: opportunistic user association with congestion-based pricing in macro-femto hybrid network

Femtocell technology addresses the severe problems of poor network capacity and indoor coverage. Meanwhile, the emergence of high-capacity air interfaces and dense deployment of small cells result in increasingly high backhaul cost in cellular wireless networks. Purchasing on leased lines can guarantee the service provision during busy hours, however, purchased capacity goes to ...

Lifetime maximization by partitioning approach in wireless sensor networks

Lifetime is a key parameter in the design of routing protocols in energy-constrained wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Conventional single-path routing schemes may not be optimal in maximizing network lifetime. In this paper, we present a new routing algorithm based on the optimal number of hops to partition the path from the source to the sink. The algorithm is based on energy ...

The 5G candidate waveform race: a comparison of complexity and performance

5G will have to cope with a high degree of heterogeneity in terms of services and requirements. Among these latter, the flexible and efficient use of non-contiguous unused spectrum for different network deployment scenarios is considered a key challenge for 5G systems. To maximize spectrum efficiency, the 5G air interface technology will also need to be flexible and capable of ...

Channel hopping scheme to mitigate jamming attacks in wireless LANs

Although a jamming attack is an important problem in Wi-Fi networks, there is no effective solution to this problem yet. In this paper, we propose a new approach to resolve jamming attacks in Wi-Fi networks based on the concept of channel hopping. If we assume that the attacker does not jam all the channels simultaneously, then it might be possible to circumvent a jamming attack by ...

RIePDMA and BP-IDD-IC detection

Pattern division multiple access (PDMA) is a non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) scheme which is proposed to meet the demand of massive connection in the future 5G communications. In this paper, we build a random interleaver (RI) enhanced PDMA (RIePDMA) system by bringing the random interleaver into a PDMA system to further improve the overload of PDMA. Furthermore, we analyze ...

A decision fusion rule using the total number of detections reported by the local sensors for hypothesis testing and the total number of detections that report “1” to the fusion center (FC) is studied for a wireless sensor network (WSN) with distributed sensors. A logistic regression fusion rule (LRFR) is formulated. We propose the logistic regression fusion algorithm (LRFA), in ...

Simultaneous wireless energy transfer and spectrum sharing with primary data relaying in cognitive radio networks

Spectrum sharing and energy harvesting (EH) are promising techniques to enhance the spectrum and energy efficiency of wireless networks. In this paper, we propose a spectrum sharing scheme based on the cooperative energy and data transfer in both the time and space domains. When the primary base station (PB) transfers energy to the primary user (PU), the secondary user (SU) can ...

Cognitive full-duplex relay networks under the peak interference power constraint of multiple primary users

This paper investigates the outage performance of cognitive spectrum-sharing multi-relay networks in which the relays operate in a full-duplex (FD) mode and employ the decode-and-forward (DF) protocol. Two relay selection schemes, i.e., partial relay selection (PRS) and optimal relay selection (ORS), are considered to enhance the system performance. New exact expressions for the ...

This paper presents a novel software radio implementation for joint channel estimation, data decoding, and noise variance estimation in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) space division multiple access (SDMA). In contrast to many other iterative solutions, the proposed receiver is derived within the theoretical framework of a unified message-passing algorithm, combining belief ...

A hybrid half-duplex/full-duplex transmission scheme in relay-aided cellular networks

In two-hop relay-aided cellular networks, both half-duplex (HD) and full-duplex (FD) transmission have been extensively studied. FD transmission can achieve twice throughput of HD transmission, but suffers from strong self-interference (SI), which may not be perfectly cancelled. In this paper, a hybrid HD/FD transmission scheme in a relay-aided cellular network is proposed, which ...

In this paper, a method for approximating the probability distribution of sum of independent and identical Weibull random variables is adopted to analyze the performance of equal gain combiner (EGC) receiver over non-identical Weibull fading channel (WFC). Our main result is to derive a generalized expression of the probability density function (PDF) of the signal-to-noise ratio ...

Time domain equalization method for TS-OFDM signal under higher mobile environments

In higher time-varying fading channels, the signal quality of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) technique would be degraded relatively due to the occurrence of inter-carrier interference (ICI). To solve this problem, this paper firstly proposes a new design of time domain training sequence (TS) in the estimation of channel impulse response (CIR) for the TS-OFDM ...

Link layer network coding (LLNC) promises to provide high throughput in relay networks through combining packets at the relays and trading communication for computation. The emerging area of physical layer network coding (PLNC) exploits the electromagnetic nature of signals and eliminates the need for addition at the packet level, while making signal design and coding schemes ...

Full-duplex distributed switch-and-stay networks with wireless energy harvesting: design and outage analysis

Distributed switch and stay combining (DSSC) has been considered as an effective technique to achieve spatial diversity in a distributed manner with low processing complexity. In this paper, we incorporate DSSC into a full-duplex dual hop relaying system, where two energy-constrained relay nodes assist the information transmission from the source to the destination using energy ...

Spatial degrees-of-freedom in large-array full-duplex: the impact of backscattering

The key challenge for in-band full-duplex wireless communication is managing self-interference. Many designs have employed spatial isolation mechanisms, such as shielding or multi-antenna beamforming, to isolate the self-interference waveform from the receiver. Because such spatial isolation methods confine the transmit and receive signals to a subset of the available space, the ...

Polar codes for non-identically distributed channels

We introduce new polar coding schemes for independent non-identically distributed parallel binary discrete memoryless channels. The first scheme is developed for the case where underlying channels are time invariant (the case of a deterministic channel parameters), while the other schemes deal with a scenario where underlying channels change based on a distribution (the case of ...

Full-duplex technology has become an attractive solution for future 5th generation (5G) systems for accommodating the exponentially growing mobile traffic demand. Full duplex allows a node to transmit and receive simultaneously in the same frequency band, thus, theoretically, doubling the system throughput over conventional half-duplex systems. A key limitation in building a ...

Some essential issues still remain not completely resolved, and the scalability of control plane is the most intractable one with the explosive increase of network traffic. To address this issue, many researchers ...
