Universal Filtered Multi-Carrier (UFMC) is a novel modulation technique which can be seen as a generalization of filtered OFDM and Filterbank based multi-carrier (FBMCFMT). Being a candidate waveform technology for 5G wireless systems it combines the simplicity of OFDM with the advantages of FBMC. While previous work on UFMC was based on Dolph-Chebychev-filters, in this paper we now optimize the FIR filter design, using two different optimization criteria. The first criterion is the maximization of the signal over out-of-band leakage ratio. The second criterion uses signal over in-band distortion plus out-of-band leakage ratio. We compare UFMC based on filters with those two optimization approaches against UFMC with Dolph-Chebychev filters and against OFDM in a setting with non-perfect frequency alignment. The performance gains of the optimized filters are demonstrated in link level simulations.

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 ...
