Mobile cloud is changing the way to enroll teaching activities in university campus. Lectures and lab sessions can be carried out directly from tablets in a class room by accessing a server in the cloud. In this paper, we address the problem of high density cloud access with wireless devices in campus networks. We propose to use Wi-Fi Direct clustering to solve the problem of Quality of Service (QoS) degradation when a high number of wireless devices want to access a content in the cloud at the same time. A centralized software-defined network controller is used in our proposed architecture to capture the network state and organize the Wi-Fi Direct groups. The optimized number of clusters can be calculated in function of the number of devices in the room. By simulations, we show that we can provide a better QoS in terms of download time and application's throughput by reducing the interference in this dense wireless network environment.

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 ...
