Optimal Rate Allocation for Minimization of the Consumed Energy of Base Stations with Sleep Mode

  • Ephremides N.
  • Santos A.

In cellular networks, it is desirable to reduce the energy consumed by base stations as they contribute to a major percentage of the energy consumed by the network. In this paper, we consider the downlink scenario in a Macro cell in which the base station is required to satisfy its ...

Low Contention and High Resilience to Partial Failures in Colorless and Directionless OXC

  • Chiaroni D.
  • Zami T.

In this paper, we demonstrate that a modular, colorless, and directionless add/drop blocks targeting 4 and 8degree wavelength routing cross-connects can achieve internal blocking ratio smaller than 1% even in case of partial failure.

We present a first high performance APD-based linear burst-mode receiver (BM-RX) with a record wide dynamic range of 31dB. The APD multiplication factor is controlled from burst to burst within 60ns by an on-chip self-generated M-control signal. Introduction Passive optical network (PON) systems are widely used to create cost-effective optical ...

Analysis of Disciplines Publishing at the Web Science Conference Series

  • Hooper C.
  • Kalampokis E.
  • Marie N.

Web Science is an interdisciplinary arena. Motivated by the unforeseen scale and impact of the web, it addresses web-related research questions in a holistic manner, incorporating perspectives from a broad set of disciplines. There has been ongoing discussion about which disciplines are more or less present in the community, and ...

Evidence of gain modulation in km-long lasers DRAFT

  • Brenot R.

Gain modulation in km-long lasers is experimentally demonstrated and explained. 1. Introduction A new kind of laser raises much attention for a few years. It consists in a Reflective SOA, a km-long fibre, an AWG and a mirror. Thus, the round-trip time of photons is in the s scale, and ...

Link sleep mode vs. OE devices power management approach: A comparison for survivable Green Optical Networks

  • Morea A.

The power saving provided by the dynamic power management of the OE interfaces is compared to the ons provided by the link sleep approach. In dynamic traffic scenarios, the former approach reduces by 48% the power consumption achieved by the latter. Additionally, for 1:1 dedicated protection, the recovery time is ...

On Fading Broadcast Channels with Partial CSIT

  • Maddahali M.
  • Poor H.
  • Shamai S.
  • Tandon1 R.
  • Tulino A.

The two user multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) broadcast channel is studied in which the channel from one of the receivers is known instantaneously and perfectly at the transmitter, whereas the channel from the other receiver is known in a delayed manner. The degrees of freedom (DoF) region of the two-user MIMO ...

A Distributed Signal Processing Strategy for UL CoMP

  • Zhu X.

Coordinated multipoint (CoMP) Tx/Rx has been widely considered and discussed to address the issues of inter-cell Interference in cellular network. For uplink, to increase the throughput of UE at the cell edge and enhance network throughput, the signal from UE could be received at multiple BS that are geographically distributed. ...

Performance Analysis of Co-channel LTE-Advanced Femto Deployments

  • Stanze O.
  • Weber A.

User deployed femto cells are a means to cope with increasing traffic demands. From user perspective femto cells provide a good indoor coverage. From provider perspective they are a cheap possibility to offload traffic from the macro layer. In general, a femto cell will not be open for any mobile. ...

Optical mode multiplexers based on spatial sampling of MMF's aperture and successive optical filtering is analyzed and the associated MIMO processing effort in mode division multiplexed system is discussed.

Non uniform Image Patch Exemplars using Low level vision

  • Gool L.
  • Namboodiri V.
  • Smet V.

In this paper we perform nonuniform resizing of image patch exemplars for solving low level vision problems like denoising and superresolution. While patch-based methods have been shown to be successful for several such applications, these methods have so far assumed uniform sizes for image patches. In this paper, we address ...
