LLR-based coded performance analysis of cognitive dual-hop BICM systems

In this work, we analyze the performance of a cooperative two-hop cognitive relaying system using the “detect-and-forward” strategy. The cooperation between secondary users, in the underlay spectrum sharing mode, is under an interference constraint imposed by the primary network. The proposed analytical method is based on the probabilistic characterization of the bits reliability...

To ensure the information is securely transmitted, PT and PR use a part of...

Multi-segmental OFDM signals equalization with piecewise linear channel model over rapidly time-varying channels

For rapidly time-varying channels, the performance of (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) OFDM systems with the conventional one tap equalizer will be significantly degraded. Because the orthogonality between subcarriers is destroyed, the conventional way to combat the inter-carrier interference (ICI) is employing the banded minimum mean square error (MMSE) equalizer...

In addition to CBTC systems, passenger information systems (PISs) are adopted in urban rail transit systems to improve quality of service (QoS) offered to customers. The...

Resource allocation for OFDM-based multiuser cooperative underlay cognitive systems

This paper investigates the resource allocation problem for a multiuser underlay cognitive system where the secondary system is allowed to transmit and cooperate with the primary system. In this scenario, the secondary users are subject to two main constraints in the presence of the primary user: their total power budget and the allowable interference threshold at the primary...

Exploiting the overhearing capabilities of transmitting nodes to increase the energy efficiency in dense networks

The 1000-fold capacity increase envisioned by dense 5G networks results also in a tremendous increase in the energy consumption of the whole network.
