Resource Management (RM) in fifth generation (5G) radio access network has been the subject of extensive study in recent years. An agile RM framework should encompass greatly-improved services from previous mobile network generations along with advanced new services meeting the challenging requirements, like massive data rate and ultra-low latency. The novel aspects of 5G system lies within co-existence of diverse legacy or new wireless technologies and air interfaces (AI) consuming shared resources of frequency, time, etc. This will lead to new use-cases, which should holistically be addressed by a comprehensive RM framework. In this paper we explore a number of these use cases, namely flexible services-based time scheduling, integration and abstraction of multiple AI variants (AIV) in a systematic way. RM for device-to-device communication and RM for internetwork collaboration have been shown as examples exploiting this model abstraction.

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 ...
