In this paper, we analyze the energy efficiency performance of multi-hop cooperative relaying power line communication (PLC) systems. In order to further minimize the energy consumption of such systems, we study the performance of incremental decode-and-forward (IDF) relying over the lognormal fading PLC channel contaminated with impulsive noise.

BGA Interconnection Reliability in Mirrored Module Configurations

Interconnection dimensions are becoming more important due to electrical signal timing requirements and stray effects, such as unwanted inductance, leading to increasingly denser packaging. One way to shorten the signal path is to use mirrored structures, where the components are placed on opposite sides of the printed circuit board (PCB). ...

Compression-Based Compressed Sensing

  • Erkip E.
  • Jalali S.
  • Poor H.
  • Rezagah F.

Modern compression codes exploit signals’ complex structures to encode them very efficiently. On the other hand, compressed sensing algorithms recover “structured” signals from their under-determined set of linear measurements. Currently, there is a noticeable gap between the types of structures used in the area of compressed sensing and those employed ...

  • Jonathan Rodriguez
  • Kazi Mohammed Saidul Huq

The ever-increasing demand for data traffic for future wireless systems poses challenging requirements for 5G wireless communications, such as high spectral efficiency, better interference management, and extensive connectivity. These challenges open the possibility to use non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) schemes in future radio access networks. In these schemes, the users ...

Bit- and Power-Loading-A Comparative Study on Maximizing the Capacity of RSOA Based Colorless DMT Transmitters

  • Bonjour R.
  • Brenot R.
  • Gebrewold S.
  • Hillerkuss D.
  • Leuthold J.

We present a comparative study of the capacity increase brought by bit- and power-loading discrete multi-tone (DMT) modulation for low-cost colorless transmitters. Three interesting reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) based colorless transmitter configurations are compared: First, an amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) spectrum-sliced source; second, a self-seeded RSOA fiber cavity laser ...

A theoretical analysis of buffer occupancy for Intermittently-Connected Networks

  • Boero L.
  • Cello M.
  • Gnecco G.
  • Marchese M.
  • Patrone F.
  • Sanguineti M.

Network congestion is a well-known problem that may heavily affect the overall network performance. Congestion control approaches in Intermittently-Connected Networks (ICNs) differ from those used in classical networks, since the assumptions of ``universal connectivity{''} of the nodes and ``global information{''} about the network do not hold. In this paper, an ...

Practical LTE and WiFi Coexistence Techniques Beyond LBT

  • Khawer M.
  • Ling J.
  • Lopez-Perez D.

Coexistence with WiFi is the key issue for unlicensed band LTE. The main coexistence mechanism is listen-before-talk, whereby radio frequency energy is sensed over a short period and compared to a threshold. Given the default energy thresholds, the energy sensing range is much less than the cell range. Either technology ...

Physical-Layer Security With Full-Duplex Transceivers and Multiuser Receiver at Eve

  • Ansari I.
  • Mahmood N.
  • Mogensen P.
  • Popovski Petar
  • Qaraqe K.

Full- duplex communication enables simultaneous transmission from both ends of a communication link, thereby promising significant performance gains. Generally, it has been shown that the throughput and delay gains of full-duplex communication are somewhat limited in realistic network settings, leading researchers to study other possible applications that can accord higher ...

Organic visible light communications: Methods to achieve 10 Mb/s

  • Haigh P.
  • Le Minh H.
  • Le S.

In this review, we summarise methods towards achieving 10 Mb/s connectivity for visible light communications links utilising organic polymer based light-emitting diodes as the transmitter. We present two different methods; on-off keying supported by least mean squares equalisation and orthogonal frequency division multiplexing without equalisation.
