Theoretical research has demonstrated that the achievable gains in data rate with dynamic spectrum management, i.e. signal coordination or spectrum coordination, are substantial for digital subscriber line (DSL) networks. Work on these two fronts has progressed steadily and, more often than not, independently. In this paper, we combine the two types of coordination for a mixed DSL scenario, in which some of the infrastructure required for full two-sided signal coordination is available, but not all. This scenario, which is referred to as the discrete multitone multiple-input, multiple-output interference channel (DMT MIMO-IC), consists of multiple interfering users, each operating a distinct subset of DSL lines as a MIMO system. Coordination is done both on the signal level (with per user MIMO techniques) and on the spectrum level (with multiuser power allocation). We propose two algorithms for the DMT MIMO-IC weighted rate maximization problem. In the first algorithm, we profit from recent A preliminary version of this paper was presented at the European Signal Processing Conference (EUSIPCO), Barcelona, Spain, in September 2011.

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 ...

  • Wu Q.

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 ...
