A new link scheduling approach for millimeter wave wireless mesh network is presented. The proposed link scheduling solution is designed to work together with a multiple overlapping spanning trees-based routing schemes on a mesh network topology. The link schedule computation will minimize the end-to-end delay along a subset of shortest-hop paths from non-gateway nodes to a gateway node of the mesh, where each path is obtained from one of the spanning trees. The link schedule itself consists of cyclic repetition of a vector of transmission sets, where a transmission set is a maximal collection of links that can be active simultaneously. Simultaneous activity of the links is limited by radio interference and by shared resources. Algorithms for the computation of the link schedule are provided and computational issues of the algorithms are discussed.

  • 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 ...
