This paper provides a high level comparison of several multi-carrier and single-carrier waveforms based on the evaluations performed in mmMAGIC project. The waveforms are assessed for performance indicators that are relevant to mobile radio communication above 6 GHz, especially the millimeter wave frequencies. The evaluations are performed in mmMAGIC waveform simulators under common assumptions on carrier frequencies, waveform parameters, channel and impairment models. The evaluation results reveal that OFDM is attractive for above 6 GHz communication. For above 30 GHz communication, DFTS-OFDM and OFDM with PAPR reduction are promising options.Moreover, some potential enhancements to OFDM(use of window/pulse shape, subband filters, unique word, zero tailing), parametrization of FBMC, and constrained envelop continuous phase modulation for above 6 GHz communication have been discussed.

  • 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 ...
