We present a novel protocol for massive cellular Internet of Things (IoT) based on the connectionless access approach. Our solution has very low signaling overhead and is thus very efficient for sporadic short burst traffic applications. Numerical analysis of the capacity achieved by our solution indicates that millions of (IoT) devices can be served with a 10 MHz system bandwidth. Furthermore, our proposal shows capacity gains of up to 260% when compared against state-of-the-art solutions such as legacy LTE, eMTC and NB-IoT.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

Digital networks at the nexus of productivity growth

  • Kamat S.
  • Prakash S.
  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
