© 2018 Elsevier GmbH Multi Carrier Code Division Multiple Access (MC-CDMA) is an appropriate modulation technique for high data rates. In this modulation scheme, employing of combining techniques are unavoidable for restoring orthogonality between different user signals. In this paper, the combining techniques of a MC-CDMA based on wavelet transform are studied. The partial combining of the wavelet based MC-CDMA system is suggested and its performance is compared with the maximum ratio combining (MRC), equal gain combining (EGC), orthogonality restoring combining (ORC) and the minimum mean square error (MMSE) techniques. Orthogonal filter banks of the wavelet transforms provide orthogonality between the wavelets and scaling functions, subcarriers and spreading sequences. Therefore, they provide new dimensions in combatting multipath fading, inter carrier interference (ICI) and narrowband interference in MC-CDMA systems. Furthermore, analysis of partial combining shows that coefficients of this technique can be computed in a simple manner. Simulations results indicate that the bit error rate (BER) performance of the proposed scheme is almost comparable with the MMSE combining scheme and the proposed system has a proper performance in terms of BER versus the signal to noise ratio (SNR) in frequency selective fading channels.

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 ...
