Sensitivity of Nonlinear Precoding to Channel Variations in G.fast

Nonlinear Tomlinson-Harashima precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal interference mitigation technique for downstream transmission in G.fast systems, particularly in the transmit spectrum above 106 MHz. We propose an alternative implementation of Tomlinson-Harashima precoding and examine performance of the common and alternative implementations with respect to quantization errors and imperfect channel state information. We show that Tomlinson-Harashima precoding is more sensitive than optimized linear precoding to varying channel state information due to fluctuations in ambient conditions and sudden changes in termination impedance. We also show that Tomlinson-Harashima precoding only outperforms optimized linear precoding when the channel state information is almost perfectly known.

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 ...
