The paper presents system level simulation results on future base station energy saving using a time-triggered sleep model. The energy efficiency of future base station is compared in macro cellular network against a comparable baseline without usage of sleep modes. Furthermore, results for corresponding 4G case are shown using a restricted set of sleep modes supported by 4G networks. The paper also proposes an analytical method for approximating system level energy saving gains of a base station. The results show rising trend of energy saving gain, when increasing the SS burst period of a 5G base station. However, the gains are seen to saturate at certain SS burst periodicity of 20 msâ?"40 ms. Furthermore, the results illustrate the rising energy saving gains towards reduced system load. The results for 4G show energy saving gains up to 22 % due to reduced set of sleep modes available for use. Finally, the calculated energy saving gain values are closely aligned with the simulated values.

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 ...
