This final deliverable from the WP5 of mmMAGIC project details the multi-antenna, multi-node and the transceiver hardware modelling related analyses and solutions developed over the 2 year project duration. The multi-antenna studies have identified hybrid beamforming as a key solution to meet the complexity and performance needs of mm-wave transceivers. The multinode support, be it through another access points, rays or other technologies like FSO (Free Space Optics) is identified as an essential element in mm-wave communications, to increase the link reliability. The antenna design and modelling to meet the unique challenges and opportunities in Access point (both radio access and backhaul) and handset domains have been achieved. The hardware impairments (including Phase Noise and Power Amplifier nonlinearities) have been studied and effective modelling solutions presented in this work.

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 ...
