Dynamic and flexible radio resource management in a multi-tenant shared infrastructure is an effective strategy to improve the quality experienced by end users. In this framework, we propose a techno-economic model that allows network operators to compete and dynamically select the quality target to deliver to their customers, while simultaneously maximizing the profit. In order to understand the willingness of the network operators in the engagement on a sharing scenario, we develop a non-cooperative game wherein the Nash Equilibria show the disposition of operators to meet the customers' requirements. At the same time, the proposed framework show how it is challenging the definition of a new business market when scarcity of resources is assumed.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
