Managing Unvectored Lines in a Vectored Group

Vectoring technology allows removing far-end crosstalk from coordinated lines. Challenges arise when vectored lines are mixed with legacy VDSL2 lines in the same binder. We show that an automated line management technique based on scalar parameters that control the maximum transmit power spectral density, signal-to-noise-ratio margin and data rate on the legacy lines allows regaining some of the performance loss due to the presence of the legacy lines when the data rate on these legacy lines is significantly capped. We see this as a practical solution in case all lines are served by a single operator. When multiple operators serve lines in the same access network, this technique does not provide a fair competition between the operators without loss of vectoring gains, and virtual unbundling may be preferred.

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 ...
