The receiver modulator of the TD-3 repeater is the first unit in the signal path which uses active devices. Because it is in the signal path, its transmission characteristics must be well behaved, and because it is at the front end of the repeater, its low thermal noise is of considerable importance to the performance of the system. 2.1 Objectives The objective of the development was to obtain a solid state downconverter-preamplifier for the microwave receiver of the TD-3 system. The unit had to be reliable, inexpensive, and in a shape to ease the transmitter-receiver bay designing. It should be easy to manufacture and maintain, and should have a minimum of adjustments. It should be designed to last at least 20 years and be rugged enough to withstand the shock and temperature extremes of shipment. In addition, it should conform to the following electrical specifications: Signal midband frequency: fSI = 3710, 3730, . . . 4190 MHz, according to the frequency plan discussed in Ref. 1. Local oscillator frequency: fL0 = 3780, 3800, . . . 4120 MHz, according to the frequency plan discussed in Ref. 1. 1257

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
