One major advantage of cloud/centralized radio access network is the ease of implementation of multi-cell coordination mechanisms to improve the system spectrum efficiency (SE). Theoretically, large number of cooperative cells lead to a higher SE; however, it may also cause significant delay due to extra channel state information feedback and joint...
Chapter
The exponential increase of user data often requires planning and design of a data communication system and the operation and management of such a system. The latter issues are discussed in the next several chapters and this chapter mainly deals with planning and design of a wireless network. Network design and planning consists of three steps: net...

Small cell (SCell) and Software Define Network (SDN) are two key enablers to meet the evolutional requirements of future telecommunication networks, but still on the initial study stage with lots of challenges faced. In this paper, the problem of mobility management in SDN-integrated LTE (Long Term Evolution) mobile backhaul network is investigated...
Article
In this paper, we consider multi-relay cooperative networks for the Rayleigh fading channel, where each relay, upon receiving its own channel observation, independently compresses it and forwards the compressed information to the destination. Although the compression at each relay is distributed using Wyner-Ziv coding, there exists an opportunity f...
Article
In this paper, we investigate the design of a radio resource control (RRC) protocol in the framework of long-term evolution (LTE) of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project regarding provision of low cost/complexity and low energy consumption machine-type communication (MTC), which is an enabling technology for the emerging paradigm of the Internet...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we consider Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) in a cloud-based radio access network (RAN), where each coordinating access point compresses its observation using distributed Wyner-Ziv compression and forwards the compressed signal to the receiving processing unit. We map this architecture to the multiple-relay compress-and-forward (CF) p...
Conference Paper
Conventional cellular systems are dimensioned according to a worst case scenario, and they are designed to ensure ubiquitous coverage with an always-present wireless channel irrespective of the spatial and temporal demand of service. A more energy conscious approach will require an adaptive system with a minimum amount of overhead that is available...

Network densification is envisioned as the key enabler for 2020 vision that requires cellular systems to grow in capacity by hundreds of times to cope with unprecedented traffic growth trends being witnessed since advent of broadband on the move. However, increased energy consumption and complex mobility management associated with network densifica...
Conference Paper
There is a need to develop energy-effcient adaptive systems for future telecommunication networks. While traffc varies at different times, the power consumption of the radio access network does not scale with it effectively. To make signif-cant energy savings, a dynamic deployment approach is required to allow the system to operate in an energy-eff...

There has been escalated demand for rapid, low-latency and high-rate communication of information at homes and business premises in the past decade. As the need for high speed access by end-users evolved, particularly fuelled by the widespread adoption of the wireless internet (smart phone), some standards such as High-Speed Downlink Packet Access...
Conference Paper
In this paper, hybrid relaying schemes are investigated in the two-way relay channel, where the relay node is able to adaptively switch between different forwarding schemes based on the current channel state and its decoding status and thus provides more flexibility as well as improved performance. The analysis is conducted from the energy efficien...
Conference Paper
While many studies have concentrated on providing theoretical analysis for the relay assisted compress-and-forward systems little effort has yet been made to the construction and evaluation of a practical system. In this paper a practical CF system incorporating an error-resilient multilevel Slepian-Wolf decoder is introduced and a novel iterative...
Conference Paper
The overall target of the EARTH project is to reduce the power consumption of mobile broadband networks by 50%. For this, solutions acting all the way from components in the base stations, link level improvements, as well as radio network level concepts are developed. This paper presents a strategy for how these energy efficiency enablers can be in...

In this paper, we propose novel Hybrid Automatic Repeat re-Quest (HARQ) strategies used in conjunction with hybrid relaying schemes, named as H<sup>2</sup>-ARQ-Relaying. The strategies allow the relay to dynamically switch between amplify-and-forward/compress-and-forward and decode-and-forward schemes according to its decoding status. The performan...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we propose a novel energy-aware adaptive sectorisation strategy, where the base stations are able to adapt themselves to the temporal traffic variation by switching off some sectors and changing the beam-width of the remaining sectors. An event based user traffic model is established according to Markov-Modulated Poisson Process (MMP...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we analyze the Hybrid Automatic Repeat re-Quest (HARQ) protocols used in conjunction with hybrid relaying schemes from the energy efficiency perspective. In cooperative communications, hybrid relaying strategy allows the relay to dynamically switch between different forwarding schemes according to its decoding status and provide eith...
Article
We study the error-resilient Slepian-Wolf compression for correlated binary sources in this paper. In previous works, the compressed bits are usually assumed to be transmitted in a perfect channel and thus, received without any error. However, we introduce the Gaussian channel and protect the compressed bits with error-protection (EP) codes. A join...
Article
The rapid evolution of telecoms industry is accompanied by a huge increase of energy consumption of mobile networks, which forces the operators to exploit the potential of new techniques to save energy. In this paper, we propose a novel deployment strategy which is able to adapt itself to the spatial variation of the traffic by enhancing the cell r...
Conference Paper
A novel joint decompression and forward error correction (FEC) decoding structure for a compress-and-forward relay system is proposed. We notice the possibility of iterative processing between the decompressor and the FEC decoder for the original source information and propose a turbo-like structure to allow interaction and extrinsic information ex...
Conference Paper
In this paper, multilevel coding is tailored for cooperative communication, where the source deploys a layered encoding structure. Due to the BER difference for different coding levels, there is some possibility that the relay, despite of successful decoding in upper coding levels, might not be able to correctly decode in lower levels. We propose a...
Conference Paper
In this paper, we consider a three-node relay system with a hybrid relaying scheme, where the relay, based on its decoding status, switches between decode-and-forward (DF) and compress-and-forward (CF) adaptively. We propose according HARQ strategy and analyze its throughput performance. Then, we consider practical implementation issues by enhancin...

When channel state information (CSI) is not available to the transmitter, outage events might happen and automatic repeat request (ARQ) is implemented to ensure reliable transmission in such case. In this paper, we consider a three nodes relay system with hybrid relay scheme, where the relay, based on it decoding status, could switch between decode...

In this paper, we extend a well-developed quantization scheme to block fading relay system using compress-and-forward and propose a new achievable rate based quantization scheme (ARBQS). A new signal combination scheme with less complexity is also proposed accordingly. Based on the scalar quantizer obtained, vector quantizer with Trellis coded quan...

Automatic Repeat re-Quest (AQR) is implemented to ensure reliable transmission when channel state information (CSI) is not available to the source and the selected transmission rate is not supported by the current channel realization. We consider a relay system with hybrid relay scheme, where the relay switches between decode-and-forward (DF) and c...
Conference Paper
We noticed that in a relay system, the assumption of global Channel State Information (CSI) knowledge is unrealistic and normally, only the receiver but not the transmitter side has CSI knowledge. In this paper, we analyzed, with receive CSI, the performance of hybrid relaying scheme in the half-duplex relay channel in terms of the outage probabili...

In this paper, we analyze the block error rate (BLER) and bit error rate (BER) of soft decode-and-forward (SDF) using distributed Turbo codes, which is proposed recently to mitigate error propagation caused by decoding error in the relay node. Union bound (UB) in fading channels is derived and compared with simulation results. In order to get tight...

It has been pointed out that Slepian-Wolf (SW) coding is efficient to compress data with side information available at the receiver. However, most papers assume that the compressed information is perfectly known to the receiver. In this paper, we consider more practical assumptions that the channel between the relay and the destination is not perfe...

Feature selection plays an important role in classification systems. Using classifier error rate as the evaluation function, feature selection is integrated with incremental training. A neural network classifier is implemented with an incremental training approach to detect and discard irrelevant features. By learning attributes one after another,...
Article
Many constructive learning algorithms have been proposed to find an appropriate network structure for a classification problem automatically. Constructive learning algorithms have drawbacks especially when used for complex tasks and modular approaches have been devised to solve these drawbacks. At the same time, parallel training for neural network...
Article
This paper presents a novel feature selection approach based on an incremental neural network (NN) training approach. Instead of training input attributes in batch, this incremental approach trains input attributes one by one so that network performance keeps refined when each new attribute comes in. If an incoming attribute is consistent with prev...
