An Enhanced Power Control Scheme for Dual Connectivity

  • Liu J.

In 3GPP LTE-Advanced Release-12, the feature of dual connectivity (DC) has been introduced to enhance small cell networks from the aspects of higher layer architecture and physical layer procedures, which can improve mobility robustness and per-user throughput as well as avoid frequent hard handover among small cells. To guarantee the UE maximum transmit power is not exceeded, the conventional power scaling and simple semi-static power splitting between two network points were considered for DC. However, both schemes would degrade the DC performance in terms of uplink coverage and user throughput due to the uncoordinated scheduling at two network points. To address this issue, an enhanced power control scheme is proposed which could conduct uncoordinated adjustment of uplink power and data rate for DC. The simulation results are provided to demonstrate the performance advantages of the proposed scheme.

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 ...
