The contention-based (CB) transmission is a promising solution for small data packets transmission in 5G uplink. In this paper, a Non-Orthogonal Coded Access (NOCA) scheme, called ZC-NOCA, is proposed for CB transmission in 5G uplink. For ZC-NOCA, the codes generated by Zadoff-Chu (ZC) sequences is used to spread the data bit over the Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple (OFDM) symbols. Different with LTE, where ZC sequences keep inter-cell orthogonal, ZC-NOCA use both non-orthogonal and orthogonal sequences for spreading. A CB transmission channel design with ZC-NOCA for 5G uplink is presented, to combine the advantages of both orthogonal and non-orthogonal schemes. The link level performance of ZC-NOCA is investigated by using two types of multi user detection (MUD) receiver considering the user detection performed by preamble or directly by the spreading codes. The study show ZC-NOCA allow a large number of user overloading and enable massive connections employed with CB transmission. Compare to orthogonal code access scheme, with larger code book length ZC-NOCA enables to support more than 10x user connections with acceptable link performance loss in CB transmission.

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 ...
