  • Performance Analysis of MAC Scheduler in LTE (EUTRAN) for "ASAR": Resource Allocation

    Publication Year: 2016, Page(s):6 - 11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (266 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Evolved UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network (EUTRAN) offer high uplink and downlink throughput. This enhances user experience in term of Quality-of-Service (QoS). Radio resource allocation is a complex arrangement of resources in multiuser scenario. Generally in network, radio resources are configured in pool, however resources are offered to user on the basis of "as soon as required (ASAR)". LT... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (464 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Increase in number of commodity devices using network connection raised the spectrum demand largely. The present static spectrum allocation policy gave birth to the so called spectrum scarcity problem. Cognitive Radio enhances the bandwidth usage through Dynamic Spectrum Access without affecting the allocated spectrum, therefore offers a feasible solution to the problem of spectrum scarcity.

    The search space allocation scheme is a very important operation done to schedule users in the resources of the control channels PDCCH and enhanced PDCCH. However, the standard scheme has many drawbacks as it allocates each user a contiguous number of candidates to blindly search for its control information. This paper reviews some of the proposed designs in literature for the search space allocat... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the user evaluation of two different strategies for guiding pedestrians. This work is based on a hands free, eyes free scenario explored by SpaceBook [1], using cheap Android phones. The first model described is a comparatively simple purely reactive model [2]. The second is using more involved techniques including prediction of future positions and scheduling [3]. The paper d... View full abstract»

    Power efficiency has become one of the most important issues in mobile devices because of their limited battery size. However, many mobile applications and processors negatively accelerate power consumption of mobile devices. Previous work (e.g., CPU hotplug) may be inappropriate in mobile devices due to their slow responsiveness because it has to migrate all processes running on a CPU, which is t... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (546 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    With the rapid growth of interest in media-rich user experience, content distribution networks (CDNs) gained considerable attention. Since, most of the energy is consumed by cache points (CPs) and the associated equipment, it is imperative to deploy fewer number of CPs or switch off as many as possible to save energy. This results in degraded quality of service (QoS). It is an usual dimensioning t... View full abstract»
