  • Application of full duplex guarantees secure wireless communication

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):105 - 113
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (371 KB)

    This paper proposes an amplify-and-forward (AF) based scheme for full duplex systems to realize secure wireless communication between two nodes over block fading medium. The paper consider all four possible scenarios: Multiple-input and multipleoutput (MIMO), multiple-input and single-output (MISO), singleinput andmulti-output (SIMO), and single-input and single-output (SISO) systems. We first dev... View full abstract»

  • Optimal deployment of assisting cells for multimedia push in single frequency network

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):114 - 123
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (497 KB)

    Long term evolution (LTE) systems are equipped deliberately with the multimedia broadcast/multicast service over a single frequency network (MBSFN) to save transmitting resources. With the usage of assisting cells in MBSFN transmission, there is a significant effect on raising spectral efficiency (SE), and energy efficiency (EE) may be promoted synchronously. In this paper, we propose a circle mod... View full abstract»

  • Performance analysis of multi-antennas combining and selection schemes for wireless-powered communication

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):124 - 133
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (494 KB)

    We propose and analyze spatial diversity combining and selection schemes in a wireless-powered communication network with multi-antennas at energy access point (EAP) and data access point (DAP). The EAP adopts either maximal-ratio transmitting or transmit antenna selection to wirelessly transfer power, and the DAP employs either maximal-ratio combining or receive antenna selection to combine the r...

  • Optimal wireless power transfer with distributed transmit beamforming

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):134 - 146
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (808 KB)

    This paper considers the performance of wireless power transfer (WPT) with distributed transmit beamforming (DTB) in a narrowband setting. One or more receive nodes, each equipped with energy harvesting and storage capabilities, provide periodic channel state feedback to a cluster of transmit nodes, each with an independent local oscillator, to facilitate beamforming and passband signal alignment ...

  • Energy efficient hybrid satellite terrestrial 5G networks with software defined features

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):147 - 161
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1404 KB)

    In order to improve the manageability and adaptability of future 5G wireless networks, the software orchestration mechanism, named software defined networking (SDN) with control and user plane (C/U-plane) decoupling, has become one of the most promising key techniques. Based on these features, the hybrid satellite terrestrial network is expected to support flexible and customized resource scheduli... View full abstract»

  • Drivingstyles: a mobile platform for driving styles and fuel consumption characterization

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):162 - 168
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (669 KB)

    Intelligent transportation systems (ITS) rely on connected vehicle applications to address real-world problems. Research is currently being conducted to support safety, mobility and environmental applications. This paper presents the DrivingStyles architecture, which adopts data mining techniques and neural networks to analyze and generate a classification of driving styles and fuel consumption ba...

  • Modeling and QoS analysis of the IEEE 802.11p broadcast scheme in vehicular ad hoc networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):169 - 179
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (684 KB)

    Quality of service (QoS) and queue management are critical issues for the broadcast scheme of IEEE 802.11p systems in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs). However, existing 1- dimensional (1-D) Markov chain models of 802.11p systems are unable to capture the complete QoS performance and queuing behavior due to the lack of an adequate finite buffer model. We present a 2-dimensional (2-D) Markov chai... View full abstract»

  • Joint scheduling of data transmission and wireless power transfer in multi-channel device-to-device networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):180 - 188
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (572 KB)

    As the mobile traffic explodes, direct device-to-device communications attract much attention as one of next-generation technologies to increase the spatial spectrum efficiency in multichannel wireless networks. On the other hand, as battery-powered mobile devices interrupt user experience due to limited battery capacity, wireless power transfer has emerged as a convenient and perpetual power supp...

  • Algebra and algorithms for multipath QoS routing in link state networks

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):189 - 200
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (911 KB)

    The diversity of quality-of-service (QoS) requirements of Internet applications motivates various QoS routing algorithms that take different QoSmetrics into consideration. Routing algebra has been proposed as a framework to study the fundamental properties of QoS routing algorithms, such as their optimality and loopfreeness. However, for multipath QoS routing, little has been done in these aspects... View full abstract»

  • Gains and limits of diversity techniques in cognitive radio systems

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):97 - 104
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (761 KB)

    Cognitive radio (CR) is one of promising techniques to alleviate the spectrum scarcity resulting from the increasing demand for wireless services and the exclusive spectrum allocation policy. CR allows unlicensed users (secondary users) to access the under-utilized spectrum assigned to licensed users (primary users) if quality-of-service (QoS) requirements of primary users can be satisfied.

    The emergence of software defined networking (SDN), whose key features include separation between the data-plane and the control-plane and logically centralized network control, has potential to completely reshape the field of computer networking. Going beyond conceptual models, the existing deployment of SDN in major data centers (e.g., Google and Microsoft data centers) has demonstrated the subs... View full abstract»
