    ABSTRACT: Coordinated multi-point (CoMP) transmission has been regarded as a fascinating technology for 4G wireless communication systems. In this paper, the CoMP dynamic clustering problem is studied, a Friends algorithm (F-A) is proposed based on the procedure of making friends in human society, and then a dynamic clustering scheme is proposed based on F-A. The mutual interference among cells of the network is considerate in this algorithm, which can be obtained by CSI feedback. Compared to Traversal search (T-S) algorithm, the proposed algorithm has lower computational complexity, and the performance is almost equal. Simulation results show the proposed scheme is effective for dynamic clustering.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we consider multi-source multi-relay power allocation in cooperative wireless networks. A new intelligent optimization algorithm, multi-objective free search (MOFS), is proposed to efficiently allocate cooperative relay power to better support multiple sources transmission. The existence of Pareto optimal solutions is analyzed for the proposed multi-objective power allocation model when the objectives conflict with each other, and the MOFS algorithm is validated using several test functions and metrics taken from the standard literature on evolutionary multi-objective optimization. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme can effectively get the potential optimal solutions of multi-objective power allocation problem, and it can effectively optimize the tradeoff between network sum-rate and fairness in different applications by selection of the corresponding solution.

    ABSTRACT: The traffic of wireless networks changes in time and spatial distribution. When the traffic load is low, some base stations (BSs) can be sleep mode even been turned off to improve system energy efficiency, the corresponding traffic can be provided by the rest active base stations. In this paper, firstly, considering users with different locations and Quality of Service (QoS) requirements in actual cellular networks, an energy consumption problem is formulated. Secondly, a mobile station round robin base stations (MSRRBS) access algorithm is presented based on base station sleep mode when the network traffic load is low. At last, the computation complexity analysis is given compared to exhaustive search (ES) method. Simulation results show that, the MSRRBS algorithm can significantly reduce the total energy consumption of the network with low traffic load, meanwhile it almost achieves the nearly same performance with the ES method. Three sleep scenarios are considered, it is shown that the sleep scenario is also crucial for BSs sleep design.

    ABSTRACT: A tightly coupled air interface is the key technology for the integration of heterogeneous networks. The information interaction between different layers must be considered when the tightly coupled air interface of the integral heterogeneous networks is researched, which is called cross layer design and optimization. The physical layer abstraction algorithm is crucial to cross layer design. This paper discusses the physical layer abstraction algorithm, investigates the physical layer abstraction algorithm based on received bit mutual information rate (RBIR), and applies the algorithm in the integral heterogeneous network for CDMA EVDO and WLAN. Simulation results show that the algorithm can better describe the relation between modulation coding, channel conditions and packet error rate.

    ABSTRACT: Link Adaptation (LA) and Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) are seen as effective methods to enhance performance of wireless communications. However, most of them tend to divide LA and HARQ into two independent parts, and optimization has been made in each part respectively. It is obvious that LA promotes efficiency by decreasing robustness of wireless transmissions, while HARQ is just the opposite. So LA and HARQ should be optimized with one unified criterion to make full use of capability of wireless communications. To this question, a unified QoS criterion for LA and HARQ is proposed. Then combined optimization on LA and HARQ is deduced based on this proposed criterion. By placing both the two techniques under one evaluating framework of QoS, LA and HARQ are not optimized independently but synthetically from the view of QoS, and performance gain is achieved. Both theoretical demonstration and simulation results have validated that the proposed optimization will enhance QoS for wireless transmissions.

    ABSTRACT: In multi-hop relay network, there may be several Relay Nodes(RNs) subordinated to the base station(BS) in a cell. When an user equipment (UE) moves from one cell to another, or an UE moves between two different RNs, a handover will happen. Since the coverage of a relay is small, the handover between two RNs or RN and base station (BS) maybe happen frequently. In terms of whether the UE is located at the same cell, the handover in relay network can be classified into two categories, intra MR-BS handover and inter MR-BS handover. In this paper, we proposed a new handover scheme exploiting uplink signal and downlink signal for intra MR-BS handover with transparent RN. In the scheme, the handover decision is divided into two steps. The first step is based on uplink quality, and the second step based on downlink quality to affirm the first decision. The simulation results show that the proposed handover scheme reduces the handover probability and outage probability compared to the current intra MR-BS handover with transparent RN.

    ABSTRACT: This paper developed a cross-layer adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) design for space-time block coded (STBC) MIMO–OFDM systems, which combines the AMC at the physical layer with an automatic repeat request (ARQ) protocol at the data link layer, in order to maximize spectral efficiency under specified delay and packet error ratio (PER) constraints. The transmission mode for each subcarrier is updated frame-by-frame to match the time-varying channel conditions, in order to take full advantage of the OFDM systems. The proposed cross-layer AMC design is also incorporated with STBC to further improve the system performance. Numerical results have demonstrated that retransmission at the data link layer alleviate rigorous error-control requirements at the physical layer and thereby allows higher data rate transmission. It is shown that this cross-layer design has achieved considerable spectral efficiency gain in comparison with traditional AMC without cross-layer design. Note that increasing the maximum number of retransmissions beyond one has little effect on spectrum efficiency and will cause longer system delay. This suggests that a desirable trade-off between spectral efficiency and delay in the STBC MIMO–OFDM system is achieved by a small number of retransmission.

    ABSTRACT: In real-time image processing, a large amount of data is needed to be processed at a very high speed. Considering the problems faced in real-time image processing, a distributed multiprocessor system is proposed in this paper. In the design of the distributed multiprocessor system, processing tasks are allocated to various processes, which are bound to different CPUs. Several designs are discussed, and making full use of every process is very important to system's excellent performance. Furthermore, the problems of realization fasten on the inter-process communication, the synchronization, and the stability. System analysis and performance tests both show that the distributed multiprocessor system is able to improve system's performance variously, including the delay, the throughput rate, the stability, the scalability. And the system can be expanded easy at aspects of software and hardware. In a word, the distributed multiprocessor system designed for real-time image processing, based on distributed algorithms, not only improves system's performance variously, but also costs low and expands easy.

    ABSTRACT: New frequency domain training sequences are proposed sedfor carrier frequency offset (CFO) estimation in multipleinput multiple-output (MIMO) orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) system over frequency-selective fading channels. By exploiting frequency domain orthogonality of the training sequences, integer CFO (ICFO) can be estimated without matrix inversion operation. With the non-zero pilots in the training sequences uniformly spaced, fractional CFO (FCFO) can be estimated through the roots of a complex polynomial. Moreover, a simplified CFO estimator is also proposed which exploits a geometric mapping to transform the complex polynomial to a real one. Simulation results illustrate the good performances of the CFO estimators assisted by the proposed training sequences.
