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 ...

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 ...

Binary space partitioning tree structure is used to record history evolutionary information. ...

A unified message-passing algorithm for MIMO-SDMA in software-defined radio

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 ...

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 ...

On robustness of physical layer network coding to pollution attack

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 ...

Analyzing the potential of full duplex in 5G ultra-dense small cell networks

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 ...

Sleeping mode of multi-controller in green software-defined networking

Although promising the formidable configuration, vigorous evolution, and satisfactory performance, software-defined networking (SDN) is in its initial period all the same. 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 ...

Pre-coded LDPC coding for physical layer security

This paper examines a simple and practical security preprocessing scheme for the Gaussian wiretap channel. A security gap based error rate is used as a measure of security over the wire-tap channel. In previous works, information puncturing and scrambling schemes based on low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes were employed to reduce the security gap. Unlike the previous works, our ...

EVM derivation of multicarrier signals to determine the operating point of the power amplifier considering clipping and predistortion

The high peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) remains a major drawback of multicarrier modulations. Hence, the nonlinear characteristics of power amplifiers (PA) results in strong distortion and low power efficiency when multicarrier modulations are used. In this paper, the impact of the nonlinearities on the amplified multicarrier signal is analyzed, considering both PAPR limitation ...

Under the impact of co-channel interference (CCI) at two source nodes and the relay, we investigate the performance of dual-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying networks. In terms of energy harvesting, the power-constrained relay first scavenges energy from the received signal and CCI signals then amplifies them and forwards them to the destination. In particular, we provide ...

On the use of the channel second-order statistics in MMSE receivers for time- and frequency-selective MIMO transmission systems

Equalization of unknown frequency- and time-selective multiple input multiple output (MIMO) channels is often carried out by means of decision feedback receivers. These consist of a channel estimator and a linear filter (for the estimation of the transmitted symbols), interconnected by a feedback loop through a symbol-wise threshold detector. The linear filter is often a minimum ...
