Universal Filtered Multi-Carrier (UFMC) is a novel modulation technique which can be seen as a generalization of filtered OFDM and filter bank based multi-carrier (FBMCFMT). Being a candidate waveform technology for 5G wireless systems it combines the simplicity of OFDM with the advantages of FBMC. The FIR-filter, used in UFMC to filter a group of subcarriers, is a key design parameter to gain more robustness in a relaxed synchronization condition e.g. time-frequency misalignment. While previous work shows very significant SIR improvement for UFMC by optimizing the FIR-filter, if only carrier frequency offset is taken into account. In this paper, we optimize the FIR-filter design by taking both carrier frequency and timing offset into account. From the simulation results, up to 3.6 dB and 15.7 dB SIR improvement can be achieved against UFMC with Dolph-Chebyshev filter (side-lobe attenuation of 40 dB) and classical CP-OFDM system respectively, if the carrier frequency and timing offsets are uniformly distributed in the interval +- 5%

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 ...
