An Evolution of Load Balancing Strategies in Co-Channel HetNets: Dynamic eICIC to Multi-Streaming

  • Pupala R.
  • Vasudevan S.
  • Venkatesan S.

Range extension of pico cells facilitated by muting of macro cells has been the main load balancing strategy for LTE co-channel HetNets and standardized under the moniker of enhanced Inter-cell Interference Co-ordination (eICIC) in 3GPP. In order to adapt to varying load due to user mobility or traffic activity, both ...

Witnessing Program Transformations

  • Namjoshi K.
  • Zuck L.

We study two closely related problems: (a) showing that a program transformation is correct and (b) propagating a program invariant through a sequence of transformations. The second problem is motivated by an application where invariants on a program are used to enhance both the scope and the quality of the ...

SDN programmability theoretical and standardization aspects

  • Papadimitriou D.
  • Sales B.

SDN research directions as outlined in IRTF RG [1] outlines i) The need for more flexibility and programmability at the data plane level and ii) The need for higher-level languages for programming together with testing and debugging. There are three fundamental challenges behind these directions (assuming that local function or ...

Enabling Data Offload and Proximity Services Using Device to Device Communication over Licensed Cellular Spectrum with Infrastructure Contol

  • K S.
  • Sivanesan K.
  • Vasudevan S.
  • Zou J.

The viability of device to device(D2D) communication on uplink resources as also the benefits accruing from network control over such communication, on licensed spectrum, are quite well understood today. We investigate the merits of a particular system instantiation based on these two tenets. The challenge of scheduling communication between two ...

Performance analysis for device-to-device communications with optimal power control

  • Cai L.
  • Liu Y.
  • Yang K.

Power control is an effective method to guarantee the resource sharing between cellular and D2D links for D2D (device-to-device) communications. In this work, we study the power optimization to maximize the sum rate of all coexistent links. We explicitly put priority for cellular link to guarantee QoS (quality of service) ...

Making the Most of MIMO

  • Valtolina R.

Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) systems use multiple antennas at the transmitter end and at the receiver end of a connection to dramatically increase capacity. With these benefits, MIMO is being incorporated into industry standards and deployed in LTE and WiMAX systems. But can MIMO also be applied to microwave ...

Air Throughput: Dare to Compare

  • Valtolina R.

Historically, maximum air throughput was governed by the physical and mathematical laws put forth by scientists such as Harry Nyquist and Claude Shannon. Now, intelligent header compression technology is breaking the laws of science to push more bits per second into the air. This article explains how air throughput is ...

Confidential Domains of Execution

  • Cherubini D.
  • Cucinotta T.
  • Jul E.

Data Confidentiality or Cloud Computing? A true dilemma worthy of Hamlet and a reality for users aiming to exploit computational services in the cloud. Sensitive data can be protected by encryption, but if any computation is to be performed in the cloud, then the decryption key must be available somewhere ...

Performance of Asymmetric QPSK Modulation for Multi-Level ACK/NACK in LTE Uplink

  • Bonomo M.
  • Braun V.
  • Doetsch U.
  • Vangelista L.
  • Zimaliev A.

Asymmetric modulation schemes are candidates for conveying quality feedback in the form of multi-level ACK/NACK in a system employing reliability-based HARQ. Asymmetric QPSK (A-QPSK) modulation, for example, enables to convey one ACK level and three NACK levels with unequal error protection of the ACK and NACK levels, each NACK level ...
