The exponential growth of media streaming traffic will have a strong impact on the bandwidth consumption of the future wireless infrastructure. The main challenge is to deliver services taking into account the stringent requirements of mobile video streaming, e.g., users expected Quality-of-Service. Admission control and resource allocation can strongly benefit from the use of anticipatory information such as the prediction of future users demand and expected channel gain. In this paper, we use this information to formulate an optimal admission control scheme that maximizes the number of accepted users into the system with the constraint that not only the current but also the expected demand of all users must be satisfied. Together with the optimal set of accepted user, the optimal resource scheduling is also derived. In order to have a solution that can be computed in a reasonable time, we propose an low complexity heuristic. Numerical results show the performance of the proposed scheme with respect to the state of the art.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
