This paper deals with the discrete multitone multiple input, multiple output interference channel (DMT MIMO IC) in DSL networks. The scenario consists of a number of users, each with a given number of transceivers, that share the same channel in multiple tones. Our goal is to maximize the weighted rate sum of the users subject to power constraints. A recent paper has treated this problem with per-user power constraints. In this paper we focus on per-transceiver power constraints. We propose two different algorithms. First, we straightforwardly adapt the previously proposed DMT-WMMSE algorithm. Second, we adapt the WMMSE-GDSB, in which we separate the problem in signal and spectrum coordination parts. For the spectrum coordination part, we show that the problem can be solved more efficiently with a change of coordinates: we use a coordinate system consisting of a radius and a direction vector with ℓ1 norm equal to 1. This can be interpreted as spherical coordinates in taxicab geometry. It is observed that for the radial dimension the problem can be made concave after approximations and it is thus easy to solve. The remaining dimensions are solved iteratively and individually. Simulation results show that the WMMSE-GDSB converges faster.

  • Sharma S.

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 ...
