We present a novel protocol for massive cellular Internet of Things (IoT) based on the connectionless access approach. Our solution has very low signaling overhead and is thus very efficient for sporadic short burst traffic applications. Numerical analysis of the capacity achieved by our solution indicates that millions of (IoT) devices can be served with a 10 MHz system bandwidth. Furthermore, our proposal shows capacity gains of up to 260% when compared against state-of-the-art solutions such as legacy LTE, eMTC and NB-IoT.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as, 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 ...
