Energy Efficient Discontinuous Operation in Vectored G.fast

  • Maes J.
  • Nuzman C.

Intermittent transmission through low power states and discontinuous operation has been introduced in G.fast to enhance energy efficiency. In combination with vectoring, crosstalk cancellation must be maintained on active lines while other lines are in discontinuous operation. Without precautions, the requirements of vectoring may greatly reduce the power saving potential. We describe methods that allow trading off some of the vectoring gain for additional power saving. Using an energy consumption model, we evaluate the energy/rate trade-off of the methods under various traffic profiles. The method called discontinuous vectoring greatly enhances energy efficiency while incurring smaller data rate loss compared to other methods.

A Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

  • Francini A.
  • Miller R.
  • 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 ...

  • Wu Q.

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 ...
