In this paper we investigate and enhance the user-pairing probability in a system employing multi-user superposition transmission (MUST). In order to improve the multiuser pairing probability, we propose an additional feedback of the second best channel state information (CSI) consisting of channel quality indicator (CQI) and precoding matrix indicator (PMI). We analyze the pairing-probability and show that the additional feedback increases significantly the pairing possibilities at the scheduler. By system level simulations we confirm that the proposed enhanced feedback is improving significantly MUST performance in the context of MUST operation on the same-beam with Gray-mapped super-constellation. In addition, we suggest a simple link-to-system mapping for maximum likelihood (ML) MUST receiver, which can re-use legacy mutual-information-to-block-error-rate tables.

  • 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 ...

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 ...
