As fast development in communication field, sub-6 GHz spectrum band becomes ultra crowd. Even though Carrier Aggregation (CA) and higher order modulation used, available spectrum is still the bottleneck of communication speed and network latency. Nowadays, more and more companies and institutes are paying more attention to over 6GHz communication system research. Recently released news indicate frequency points are mainly on 12GHz, 15GHz, 28GHz, 38GHz even 70GHz, and accompanied working bandwidth is about 400MHz to 1GHz. As working band goes higher, antenna conceptions will also be updated. A CPW-Fed monopole antenna working in KU-band with more than 20% relative bandwidth is hereby introduced, which might be a good candidate for future 5G cellular networks and also satellite based DBS reception system. Proposed antenna has small profile lower than λg/4 with dual-polarization, which is thus suitable for base station and mobile device conceptions.

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 ...

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 ...
