Dynamic Vertical Sectorization (VS) is a flexible way of cell densification used to enhance system capacity in temporally and spatially varying overload situations. An automated control mechanism in the context of Self Optimizing Network (SON) is required to execute the sectorization only when there is a demand for extra capacity and the sectorization brings benefit in a dynamically varying traffic condition. The SON mechanism requires proper real-time modeling of the system performance with respect to VS activation/deactivation via monitoring the traffic situation and commonly used system parameters.

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 ...

  • Wang H.
  • 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 ...
