    Shuai Hou; Yafeng Wang; Tianyi Zeng; Sheng Wu

    In massive MIMO systems, the channel shows a spatial non-stationarity that has a significant impact on the design of sparse channel estimation scheme based on compressive sensing, due to the large size of antenna array. In this letter, the block matching pursuit (BMP)-based two-stage sparse channel estimation scheme is proposed for spatial non-stationary (SNS) channels. In this scheme, the BMP is introduced

  • Successive Relaying for Two-Hop Two-Destination Multicarrier Relay Channels
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2020-01-06
    Antony V. Mampilly; Srikrishna Bhashyam

    We propose a successive relaying decode-and-forward protocol for the half-duplex 2-relay 2-destination multicarrier channel. The proposed protocol performs significantly better than existing protocols and achieves sum rates close to the cutset upper bound. We also prove that the linear program that describes the cutset upper bound for sum capacity is optimized using only 3 of the 4 possible states

  • Zero Padding or Cyclic Prefix: Evaluation for Non-Orthogonal Signals
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2020-01-01
    Waseem Ozan; Ryan Grammenos; Izzat Darwazeh

    The debate of using zero padding (ZP) instead of a cyclic prefix (CP) for enhancing channel estimation and equalization performance is a recurring topic. This is particularly true for orthogonal signals, such as orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM). Yet, there are far fewer studies evaluating the impact of ZP and CP in non-orthogonal systems. Such systems have the added complexity of self-induced

  • Joint Channel Assignment and Occupancy Time Optimization in Frame-Based Listen-Before-Talk
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2019-12-13
    Sina Khoshabi Nobar; Mohamed Hossam Ahmed; Yasser Morgan; Samy Mahmoud

    We study the performance optimization problem of the long term evolution (LTE) network operating in the unlicensed band and sharing it with an existing WiFi network. We consider the LTE network to be based on the frame-based listen-before-talk protocol. We formulate the joint channel assignment and channel occupancy time optimization problem using a stochastic integer programming (IP) model. By applying

  • Tuning Wi-Fi Traffic Differentiation by Combining Frame Aggregation with TXOP Limits
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2019-12-10
    Katarzyna Kosek-Szott; Norbert Rapacz

    There are two IEEE 802.11 mechanisms which enhance Wi-Fi network efficiency by lowering communication overhead: the legacy transmission opportunity (TXOP) limit and frame aggregation. According to the IEEE 802.11 standard, frame aggregation has priority over TXOP duration settings, in some cases completely overriding legacy behavior. Therefore, Wi-Fi vendors and administrators may resign from enabling

  • Efficient MU-MIMO Beamforming Protocol for IEEE 802.11ay WLANs.
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2019-07-06
    Munsuk Kim,Tanguy Ropitault,SuKyoung Lee,Nada Golmie

    IEEE 802.11ay supports multi-user multiple-input-multiple-output (MU-MIMO). However, the MU-MIMO beam-forming training (BFT) is a time-consuming process for finding appropriate directional antenna patterns, and inefficient BFT results in a long training time. Thus, in this letter, we propose an algorithm that configures the transmit antenna with the aim of reducing the number of redundant transmissions

  • A Throughput Study for Channel Bonding in IEEE 802.11ac Networks.
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2017-01-01
    Mun-Suk Kim,Tanguy Ropitault,Nada Golmie,Sukyoung Lee

    Several analytical models for the channel bonding feature of IEEE 802.11ac have previously been presented for performance estimation, but their accuracy has been limited by the assumptions that there are no collisions or all nodes are in saturated state. Therefore, in this letter, we develop an analytical model for the throughput performance of channel bonding in IEEE 802.11ac, considering the presence

  • Optimal Network-based Intervention in the Presence of Undetectable Viruses.
    IEEE Commun. Lett. (IF 3.457) Pub Date : 2014-11-26
    Mina Youssef,Caterina Scoglio

    This letter presents an optimal control framework to reduce the spread of viruses in networks. The network is modeled as an undirected graph of nodes and weighted links. We consider the spread of viruses in a network as a system, and the total number of infected nodes as the state of the system, while the control function is the weight reduction leading to slow/reduce spread of viruses. Our epidemic
