Alternating packet transmission in dual connectivity for periodic deterministic communication utilising survival time

  • Gebert J.
  • Wich A.

Periodic deterministic communication is a wellknown communication pattern in vertical domains and shall be supported in 5G for Time Sensitive Communication (TSC). Such a service with typically strong requirements on ultra-reliability and low latency is required for industrial communication to support use cases like discrete automation, process automation and intelligent transport systems. The introduction of the survival time as a new service parameter allows the introduction of new algorithms in the 5G system. This paper presents the alternating packet transmission as a new mode for dual connectivity taking advantage of survival time and compares the communication service availability of this mode with single connectivity and packet duplication using dual connectivity.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

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.

  • 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 ...
