Research activities in the Vehicle-to-Everything domain have gained momentum in the recent years. A strive for “intelligent” cars, at certain stage probably even entirely autonomous, has triggered advanced studies - in both academia and industry. One of the significant issues to be addressed is how to efficiently share the available radio resources among various type of eligible users: legacy cellular and those emerging vehicle-type UEs. This paper proposes an enhanced algorithm for ensuring a robust co-existence of the aforementioned system users. This underlay Radio Resource Management (RRM) algorithm attempts to mitigate the interferences and ensure the different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications. Initial simulation results, comparing the proposed algorithm to the two selected State of the Art algorithms, are provided as a proof-of-concept.

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 ...

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 ...
