The knowledge of a future throughput value for a user equipment (UE) in Long Term Evolution (LTE) or any other transmission technology is very valuable. It can be used in rate control algorithms so that radio channel congestions may be avoided thus allowing for better quality of experience of the wireless user. Such control usually would happen at the application layer so that the control loops at different layers may work together and thus create a stable operating point. However, the metrics that are learned and predicted are available at the core of the radio link. In this paper we identify a suitable {em application-level} link quality metric (which we call $bits_U/prb$) for prediction, and analyze the performance of the predictions at differing Rayleigh velocities. We find that the prediction of the application-level link quality prediction can be 90 to 97 % accurate.

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 ...
