The Monte Carlo (MC) simulation of the error performance of a concatenated coding system with finite interleaving depth between the outer and inner codes is time-consuming, especially when targeting low error rates and examining several interleaver settings. In this contribution we present a semianalytical evaluation of the word error rate (WER) performance of a system with Reed-Solomon (RS) outer coding, finite block interleaving, low-density parity check (LDPC) inner coding and mapping to a symbol constellation. The proposed evaluation method relies on a simple single-parameter statistical mixture model for the number of byte errors in the LDPC codeword after the inner decoding. Only the WER and byte error rate (ByteER) of the inner subsystem, determined by the LDPC code and the considered constellation, are required to compute the error performance corresponding to different parameters of the RS code and the interleaver. We show that the semi-analytical WER of the concatenated system closely matches the WER resulting from MC simulations, for both the AWGN channel and the Rayleigh block-fading channel.

  • 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 ...
