    The general framework of mobile flexible networks is to design self-organizing secure networks where terminals and base stations interact and self-adapt in an intelligent manner without the need of a central controller (or with the right amount of regulation...just enough to let the agents in the network exploit fully the degrees of freedom). Of course, the design depends on the mobility pattern a... View full abstract»

  • Enhanced channel shortened turbo equalization

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):8 - 11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (376 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, the use of a channel shortening prefilter in conjunction with a maximum a-posteriori probability (MAP) based turbo equalizer is considered. The prefilter shortens the effective channel, thereby reducing the number of equalizer states. As a result of channel shortening, residual intersymbol interference (ISI) appears at the input to the turbo equalizer and the noise becomes colored. ... View full abstract»

  • Modulation identification by general orthogonal modulations

    A family of orthogonal modulations is widely spread in a variety of communication applications. These modulations include orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), orthogonal code division multiple access (CDMA), a block of quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), and so on. General orthogonal modulation was developed for the design of new flexible modulations by a multidimensional rotation... View full abstract»

  • Effects of users mobility on the selection of time slot size in TDMA wireless networks

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2002 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Users mobility in wireless networks has the obvious effect of increasing the channel fading fluctuation rate, hence the efficiency of opportunistic scheduling algorithms. In time-slotted wireless systems, the chosen slot size has to be compatible with the average channel access time (AAT) in order to preserve the multiuser diversity gain of the scheduling algorithm. This paper proposes to determin... View full abstract»

  • Exact closed-form expression for average symbol error rate of MIMO-MRC systems

    In this paper, we derive closed-form expressions for exact average symbol error rate (SER) of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO)-maximum ratio combining (MRC) systems with M-ary modulations. We obtain the tractable compact closed-form expressions for the average SER in terms of the Gauss and Appell hypergeometric functions which are provided as library functions in common mathematical softwares...

  • Uplink performance analysis of GAS-CP CDMA system

    In this paper, we propose a GAS-CP-CDMA(cyclic-prefix code division multiple access system that uses Sequences with good autocorrelation property) and analyze the uplink signal-to-noise ratio performance of that system. Phase-shifted sequences are used for differentiating users. The signals of the GAS-CP-CDMA system experience no (or very little) interferences from co-cell signals because of the g...

  • New Geometrically Uniform codes using QAM which improve the performance/complexity tradeoff of 2d codes

    Given a signal set whose geometrically uniform (GU) partition allows binary isometric labelings, a GU code C(g,C) is determined by a binary label code C and a binary isometric labeling g. Two such codes are defined to be equivalent if they have the same transmission rate and the same transfer function T (D) . It is then shown that all binary isometric labelings for the given GU partition are equal... View full abstract»
