Fifth generation (5G) wireless systems will provide connectivity for a wide range of new applications with diverse requirements. In part, the network needs to support ultra-reliable communications with low-latency (URLLC) for mission-critical applications. For these applications, the generated data should be delivered with a limited number of transmission attempts with high success probability. This paper considers the optimal transmission and resource allocations for URLLC in cellular systems. The resource allocations are derived for the fixed and adaptive transmission attempt assignments. The analysis results reveal that both fixed and adaptive transmission assignments, applicable to automatic repeat request (ARQ) and hybrid ARQ (HARQ) schemes, can reduce the required resources compared to the equal transmission assignment.

  • 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 ...
