RAn resource usage prediction for a 5G slice broker

Network slicing will allow 5G network operators to oer a diverse set of services over a shared physical infrastructure. We focus on supporting the operation of the Radio Access Network (RAN) slice broker, which maps slice requirements into allocation of Physical Resource Blocks (PRBs). We rst develop a new metric, ...

Future Millimeter-Wave Indoor Systems: A Blueprint for Joint Communication and Sensing

© 1970-2012 IEEE. Millimeter-wave (mm-wave) technology is emerging as a de facto enabler for next-generation high-rate communications. We propose that a unified mm-wave system for combined communication and robust sensing will turbocharge the capabilities of application domains from in-home digital health to new possibilities for building analytics.

Liability of Internet Service Providers - A Review Study from the European Perspective

Internet has revolutionized peoples lives by offering a medium to share and receive abundant information. However, this resource hub has become a harbour for the infringement of IP material. Although the sole responsibility lies on the internet user; some degree of liability shouldered on the internet service providers cannot be ...

Latency control in Deterministic and Dynamic Networks

We present Deterministic Dynamic Network as a solution for 5G Edge Cloud and show how we control latency to ensure end-to-end deterministic performance of only tens of microseconds latency and tens of nanoseconds jitter per-application

Run-time Performance Monitoring, Verification, and Healing of End-to-End SDN Services

Softwarization enables tremendous flexibility for networks as the use of software-defined networking (SDN) and programmable data planes (e.g. P4) together support dynamic reconfiguration of networks in real-time, in response to network conditions and new service requests. However, as the topologies and characteristics of the dynamically reconfigured networks are not known ...

Secure Application-Oriented Network Micro-Slicing

Future networks rely on network slices to flexibly adapt the network connectivity. We have introduced micro-slices that allow end-devices to be dynamically inter-connected or isolated from other end-devices according to their collaboration needs. In this demo we illustrate the use of such micro-slices in the context of a show happening ...

Autonomous IoT Device Identification Prototype

In this paper, we demonstrate a prototype for an assistant that aims to identify the types of devices being connected to a home network based on information shared by network protocols. The use of such an assistant will ease the management of devices and reduce the users' involvement.

Theory of Isolation in Multi-Mode Antennas

The literature currently maintains the assumption that mutual coupling is the mechanism that leads to the degradation of isolation between the active ports of antenna arrays. However, this paper shows that a coupled-resonator model with series-coupled mutual coupling breaks down when applied to multi-mode/multi-port antenna arrays and limits the achievable ...

Requet: Real-Time QoE Detection for Encrypted YouTube Traffic

As video traffic dominates the Internet, it is important for operators to detect video Quality of Experience (QoE) in order to ensure adequate support for video traffic. With wide deployment of end-to-end encryption, traditional deep packet inspection based traffic monitoring approaches are becoming ineffective. This poses a challenge for network ...

39/28 GHz Dual-Stream Repeater for Wireless Access

The upper part of the poster presents the targeted 39/28 GHz repeater proof-of-concept of the project TARANTO.

Analysis of Approval Voting in Poisson games

We analyze Approval Voting in Poisson games endowing voters with private values over three candidates. We first show that any stable equilibrium is discriminatory: one candidate is commonly regarded as out of contention. We fully characterize stable equilibria and divide them into two classes. In direct equilibria, best responses depend ...

A 5G mmWave Fiber-Wireless IFoF Analog Mobile Fronthaul Link with up to 24-Gb/s Multiband Wireless Capacity

We experimentally demonstrate a multiband intermediate frequency-over-fiber/mmWave (IFoF/mmWave) fiber/wireless mobile fronthaul link for gigabit capacity over the unlicensed V-band (57-64 GHz). Digital synthesis of the multiband radio waveforms is performed at the baseband unit using digital subcarrier multiplexing technique, whereas digital predistortion is exploited to cope with the analog IFoF ...

Strategies for Network Slicing Negotiation in a Dynamic Resource Market

One of the disruptive innovations introduced by 5G networks is the opportunity for a new group of stakeholders to be actively involved in the management of network slices with the role of textit{tenants}. This allows to go beyond the user-centric QoS paradigm of 4G, and to include tools for handling ...

Frequency Characteristics of Geometry-based Clusters in Indoor Hall Environment at SHF Bands

This paper presents the analysis of geometry-based cluster frequency dependency at super high frequency (SHF) bands, which are 3, 10 and 28 GHz. Firstly, multipath components (MPCs) were extracted from the measured data by using space alternating generalized expectation maximization (SAGE) algorithm. Then, geometry-based clusters were estimated by using the ...

Improvement of the type identification of connected objects using supervised machine learning
