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.

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 ...

  • Wu Q.

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 ...
