Future Internet (FI) constitutes a complex, highly decentralized and dynamic environment of resources and systems, which imperils the network stability, jeopardizing the network performance and compromising an optimized use of resources. In this context, the UniverSelf research project proposes a promising solution, called Unified Management Framework (UMF). UMF targets include the trustworthy network stability, which is accomplished through the coordinated control of the autonomous and distributed future networked systems, based on operator’s objectives. Accordingly, this paper presents the relevant UMF operation, including a description of its functional blocks and their underlying mechanisms. In the framework of this solution, the paper also describes the Network Empowerment Mechanisms (NEM) that empower networks with autonomic algorithms/solutions and can be embedded into existing and future systems in a “plug and play” way.

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 ...
