This paper investigates block error rate (BLER) performance and computational complexity of candidate channel coding schemes for ultra-reliable low latency communication (URLLC) in 5G. The considered candidates are the same as those identified in 3GPP: turbo, LDPC, polar, and convolutional codes. Details of code constructions and decoding algorithms are provided with computational complexity analysis. Code construction parameters, number of iterations, and list sizes are selected to provide a fair comparison among candidate coding schemes. Simulation results on BLER are shown for several code rates and small-to-moderate block sizes. The results reveal that polar and LDPC codes outperform turbo codes for short block sizes of 40 bits, while the opposite is true for medium block sizes of 200 bits. None of the schemes is a clear winner at all considered block sizes and coding rates. Other aspects like implementation complexity, latency, and flexibility will also be important when deciding the URLLC coding 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 ...
