Abstract [en]

This letter presents a variant of cloud radio access network (C-RAN) architecture, which we term partly wireless C-RAN (PW-CRAN). It is characterized by extra radio nodes connected through the existing remote radio heads. Because of the newly connected nodes and the consequent additional delay, the operation of PW-CRAN requires different approaches compared with that of the typical C-RAN. Specifically, the effect of delayed channel state information on the suitability of network cooperation should be identified. To tackle this problem, we introduce two representative cooperation strategies and evaluate the performance with regard to the delay via simulations. Numerical results suggest that it is better to exclude the extra nodes from cooperation if they incur excess delay. Furthermore, whether the delay is deemed excessive depends on the interference environment. Hence, we provide quantified guidelines on the cooperation strategy of PW-CRAN.

Abstract [en]

In millimeter-wave wireless networks, the use of narrow beams, required to compensate for the severe path-loss, complicates the cell-discovery and initial access. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of random beam forming and enhanced exhaustive search for cell-discovery by analyzing the latency and detection failure probability in the control-plane and the user throughput in the data-plane. We show that, under realistic propagation model and antenna patterns, both approaches are suitable for 3GPP New Radio cellular networks. The performance gain, compared to the heavily used exhaustive and iterative search schemes, is more prominent in dense networks and large antenna regimes and can be further improved by optimizing the beam forming code-books.

Abstract [en]

Signal occlusion by building blockages is a double-edged sword for the performance of millimeter-wave (mmW) communication networks. Buildings may dominantly attenuate the useful signals, especially when mmW base stations (BSs) are sparsely deployed compared with the building density. In the opposite BS deployment, buildings can block the undesired interference. To enjoy only the benefit, we propose a building-aware association scheme that adjusts the directional BS association bias of the user equipments (UEs), based on a given building density and the concentration of UE locations around the buildings. The association of each BS can thereby be biased: 1) toward the UEs located against buildings for avoiding interference to other UEs or 2) toward the UEs providing their maximum reference signal received powers. The proposed association scheme is optimized to maximize the downlink average data rate derived by stochastic geometry. Its effectiveness is validated by simulation using real building statistics.

Abstract [en]

Millimeter-wave (mmWave) networks rely on directional transmissions, in both control plane and data plane, to overcome severe path-loss. Nevertheless, the use of narrow beams complicates the initial cell-search procedure where we lack sufficient information for beamforming. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of random beamforming for cell-search. We develop a stochastic geometry framework to analyze the performance in terms of failure probability and expected latency of cell-search. Meanwhile, we compare our results with the naive, but heavily used, exhaustive search scheme. Numerical results show that, for a given discovery failure probability, random beamforming can substantially reduce the latency of exhaustive search, especially in dense networks. Our work demonstrates that developing complex cell-discovery algorithms may be unnecessary in dense mmWave networks and thus shed new lights on mmWave system design.

Abstract [en]

This paper presents a scalable scheduler for dynamic TDD systems in ultra-dense indoor deployments applicable to diverse traffic and radio propagation conditions. To minimize signalling for the channel estimation and feedback, the proposed scheduler employs offline BS-to-BS measurements to approximate the real interference for different traffic conditions. Thus, no CSI is required once the network is online. Furthermore, we show that signalling can be further reduced by considering only meaningful interferers above a received power threshold for the traffic information exchange. To perform the scheduling, a function that maps interference into individual BS activation probabilities is also introduced. Results show that the proposed scheme performs reasonably well in high interference situations compared to comparable scalable schedulers, and optimally when interference is low, both in average and 5th percentile sense.

Abstract [en]

Single-frequency networks (SFN) are widely adopted in terrestrial broadcast networks based on high-power high-tower (HPHT) deployments. The mobile broadcasting standard Evolved Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (eMBMS) has been enhanced in Release 14 to enable SFN operation with larger CP duration which may allow for the deployment of large area SFNs and even the combined operation between HPHT and low-power low-tower (LPLT) cellular stations. The knowledge of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) distribution over an SFN area may facilitate the selection of transmission parameters according to the network topology. This paper presents a semianalytical method for the calculation of the SINR distribution in SFNs with low computational complexity compared to Monte Carlo simulations. The method, which builds on previous work developed for cellular communications, is applied to HPHT+LPLT SFNs and evaluated against different transmission and network parameters.

Abstract [en]

In-band full duplex has emerged as a solution for high data rate and low access delay for 5G wireless networks after its feasibility has been demonstrated. However, the impact of the in-band full duplex on the system-level performance of multi-cell wireless networks has not been investigated thoroughly. In this paper, we conduct an extensive simulation study to investigate the performance of in-band full duplex for indoor 5G small cell wireless networks. Particularly, we compare the in-band full duplex with static and dynamic time division duplexing schemes which require much less hardware complexity. We examine the effects of beamforming and interference cancellation under various traffic demands and asymmetry situations in the performance comparison. Our objective is to identify under which condition and with which technology support the in-band full duplex becomes advantageous over the simpler duplexing schemes. Numerical results indicate that for highly utilized wireless networks, in-band full duplex should be combined with interference cancellation and beamforming in order to achieve a performance gain over traditional duplexing schemes. Only then in-band full duplex is considered to be advantageous at any number of active mobile stations in the network and any downlink to uplink traffic proportion. Our results also suggest that in order to achieve a performance gain with the in-band full duplex in both links, the transmit power of the access points and the mobile stations should be comparable.

Abstract [en]

In an ultra-dense network (UDN) where there are more base stations (BSs) than active users, it is possible that many BSs are instantaneously left idle. Thus, how to utilize these dormant BSs by means of cooperative transmission is an interesting question. In this paper, we investigate the performance of a UDN with two types of cooperation schemes: Non-coherent joint transmission (JT) without channel state information (CSI) and coherent JT with full CSI knowledge. We consider a bounded dual-slope path loss model to describe UDN environments where a user has several BSs in the near-field and the rest in the far-field. Numerical results show that non-coherent JT cannot improve the user spectral efficiency (SE) due to the simultaneous increment in signal and interference powers. For coherent JT, the achievable SE gain depends on the range of near-field, the relative densities of BSs and users, and the CSI accuracy. Finally, we assess the energy efficiency (EE) of cooperation in UDN. Despite costing extra energy consumption, cooperation can still improve EE under certain conditions.

Abstract [en]

Dynamic time-division duplexing (TDD) is considered a promising solution to deal with fast-varying traffic often found in ultra-densely deployed networks. At the same time, it generates more interference which may degrade the performance of some user equipment (UE). When base station (BS) utilization is low, some BSs may not have an UE to serve. Rather than going into sleep mode, the idle BSs can help nearby UEs using joint transmission. To deal with BS-to-BS interference, we propose using joint transmission with dummy symbols where uplink BSs serving uplink UEs participate in the precoding. Since BSs are not aware of the uplink symbols beforehand, any symbols with zero power can be transmitted instead to null the BS-to-BS interference. Numerical results show significant performance gains for uplink and downlink at low and medium utilization. By varying the number of participating uplink BSs in the precoding, we also show that it is possible to successfully trade performance in the two directions.
