A new link scheduling approach for millimeter wave wireless mesh network is presented. The proposed link scheduling solution is designed to work together with a multiple overlapping spanning trees-based routing schemes on a mesh network topology. The link schedule computation will minimize the end-to-end delay along a subset of shortest-hop paths from non-gateway nodes to a gateway node of the mesh, where each path is obtained from one of the spanning trees. The link schedule itself consists of cyclic repetition of a vector of transmission sets, where a transmission set is a maximal collection of links that can be active simultaneously. Simultaneous activity of the links is limited by radio interference and by shared resources. Algorithms for the computation of the link schedule are provided and computational issues of the algorithms are discussed.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, 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 ...
