Performance of emerging multi-carrier waveforms for 5G asynchronous communications

This paper presents an extensive and fair comparison among the most promising waveform contenders for the 5G air interface. The considered waveform contenders, namely filter-bank multi-carrier (FBMC), universal-filtered multi-carrier (UFMC), generalized frequency-division multiplexing (GFDM) and resource-block filtered orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (RB-F-OFDM) are ...

DOA estimation for wideband LFM signals with a few snapshots

The wideband linear frequency modulation (LFM) signals are widely used in information systems. The conventional direction-of arrival (DOA) estimation algorithms of LFM signals rely on a large number of snapshots, some of which are not reliable in numerous practical applications such as underwater array processing. To solve the above problem, we present a modified sparse iterative ...

In this paper, we investigate a joint power allocation and relay selection scheme for energy efficient cooperation in energy harvesting-wireless sensor networks (EH-WSN). We mainly propose a simple heuristic algorithm to improve the energy efficiency of each node in a clustering based EH-WSN. First, the effect of cooperative communication is evaluated, and then, the energy ...

Wireless power transfer (WPT) technology has many applications by virtue of its intrinsic safety and convenience characteristics. This is particularly so when the WPT systems are used in conjunction with implanted medical devices, as they can greatly reduce the pain of patients and their financial burdens. In previous researches, the optimal system mainly focuses on the design of ...

Nonlinear self-interference cancellation in MIMO full-duplex transceivers under crosstalk

This paper presents a novel digital self-interference canceller for an inband multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) full-duplex radio. The signal model utilized by the canceller is capable of modeling the in-phase quadrature (IQ) imbalance, the nonlinearity of the transmitter power amplifier, and the crosstalk between the transmitters, thereby being the most comprehensive signal ...

Link residual lifetime-based next hop selection scheme for vehicular ad hoc networks

In Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs), geographic routing protocols rely on a greedy strategy for hop by hop packet forwarding by selecting vehicle closest to the destination as the next hop forwarding node. However, in a high-mobility network such as VANET, the greedy forwarding strategy may lead to packet transmission failure since it does not consider the reliability of the ...

Optimal fronthaul compression for synchronization in the uplink of cloud radio access networks

A key problem in the design of cloud radio access networks (CRANs) is to devise effective baseband compression strategies for transmission on the fronthaul links connecting a remote radio head (RRH) to the managing central unit (CU). Most theoretical works on the subject implicitly assume that the RRHs, and hence the CU, are able to perfectly recover time synchronization from the ...

Coding to reduce the interference to carrier ratio of OFDM signals

In this paper, we propose a simple approach to reduce the sensitivity of OFDM system to the carrier frequency offset (CFO). The main idea is to choose a well-known channel code and to rotate each coordinate by a fixed phase shift such that the maximum inter-carrier interference (ICI) taken over all sub-carriers is minimized. This approach is based on a geometric interpretation of ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
