    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (200 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article provides an overview of the technology components and capabilities of the New Radio (NR) radio interface standard currently under development by 3GPP. NR will enable new use cases, requiring further enhanced data rates, latency, coverage, capacity, and reliability. This needs to be accomplished with improved network energy performance and the ability to exploit spectrum in very high f... View full abstract»

  • Extending LTE into the Unlicensed Spectrum: Technical Analysis of the Proposed Variants

    Publication Year: 2017, Page(s):31 - 39
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (235 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    The commercial success of LTE and the resulting growth in mobile data demand have urged cellular network operators to strive for new innovations. LTE in unlicensed spectrum has been proposed to allow cellular network operators to offload some of their data traffic by accessing the unlicensed 5 GHz frequency band. Currently, there are three proposed variants for LTE operation in the unlicensed band... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (500 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Distribution of live multimedia streams to a high number of end users through an ISP network may be efficiently implemented through IP multicasting. Multicast traffic engineering with traditional decentralized approaches, however, is still a challenging problem for network operators. In this article we present a centralized approach to management of source-specific multicast traffic flows relying ... View full abstract»

    Interest in fine-tuning development models to create and bring new technical work to market is high within standards bodies. Engaging any model without understanding the legal and cultural features as well as the technical ecosystems can lead to less than optimal results and possible misalignment with goals of stakeholders, especially for contributors to and users of the work. Societal and governm... View full abstract»

    A standardization system is an organism, composed of a set of interacting elements in the process of standardization activity, to serve intended functions during a period of time in a country. After addressing the notion and connotations of standardization, this article proposes the elements and connotations of the Chinese standardization system and depicts the status quo of these elements. This s... View full abstract»

    We present and discuss a control plane architecture for implementing resilience and self-healing capability in a distributed network control framework built around the "program & compile" paradigm, which leverages high-level programmability to develop and package network applications into portable re-deployable objects. We present a proof of concept by extending a software-programmed networking (S... View full abstract»
