    Constrained Resource Assignments: Fast Approximations and Applications in Wireless Networks2015Ingår i: Management science, ISSN 0025-1909, E-ISSN 1526-5501Artikel i tidskrift (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Resource assignment problems occur in a vast variety of applications, from scheduling problems over image recognition to communication networks. Often these problems can be modeled by a maximum weight matching problem in (bipartite) graphs or generalizations thereof, and efficient and practical algorithms are known for these problems. Although in some of the applications an assignment of the resources may be needed only once, in many of these applications, the assignment has to be computed more often for different scenarios. In that case it is often essential that the assignments can be computed very fast. Moreover, implementing different assignments in different scenarios may come with a certain cost for the reconfiguration of the system. In this paper, we consider the problem of determining optimal assignments sequentially over a given time horizon, where consecutive assignments are coupled by constraints that control the cost of reconfiguration. We develop fast approximation and online algorithms for this problem with provable approximation guarantees and competitive ratios. Moreover, we present an extensive computational study about the applicability of our model and our algorithms in the context of orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) wireless networks, finding a significant performance improvement for the total bandwidth of the system using our algorithms. For this application (the downlink of an OFDMA wireless cell) , the run time of matching algorithms is extremely important, having an acceptable range of a few milliseconds only. For the considered realistic instances, our algorithms perform extremely well: the solution quality is, on average, within a factor of 0.8–0.9 of optimal off-line solutions, and the running times are at most 5 ms per phase even in the worst case. Thus, our algorithms are well suited to be applied in the context of OFDMA systems.

    Multi-radio resource management for ambient networks2005Ingår i: IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications, PIMRC, IEEE , 2005, s. 942-946Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Ambient Networks concept targets forthcoming dynamic communication environments, characterized by the presence of a multitude of different wireless devices, radio access technologies, network operators and business actors, which can form instant inter-network agreements with each other. MultiRadio Resource Management (MRRM) mechanisms, coordinating several radio accesses, fulfill a key role for providing wireless services with improved resource efficiency, coverage and service quality. This paper presents an MRRM concept for Ambient Networks, describes the principal MRRM functions and discusses design criteria.

    Bit loading and precoding for MIMO communication systems2009Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis considers the joint design of bit loading, precoding and receive filters for a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) digital communication system. Both the transmitter and the receiver are assumed to know the channel matrix perfectly. It is well known that, for linear MIMO transceivers, orthogonal transmission (i.e., diagonalization of the channel matrix) is optimal for some criteria such as maximum mutual information. It has been shown that if the receiver uses the linear minimum mean squared error (MMSE) detector, the optimal transmission strategy is to perform bit loading on orthogonal subchannels.

    In the first part of the thesis, we consider the problem of designing the transceiver in order to minimize the probability of error given maximum likelihood (ML) detection. A joint bit loading and linear precoder design is proposed that outperforms the optimal orthogonal transmission. The design uses lattice invariant operations to transform the channel matrix into a lattice generator matrix with large minimum distance separation at a low price in terms of transmit power. With appropriate approximations, it is shown that this corresponds to selecting lattices with good sphere-packing properties. An algorithm for this power minimization is presented along with a lower bound on the optimization. Apparently, given the optimal ML detector, orthogonal subchannels are (in general) suboptimal.

    The ML detector may suffer from high computational complexity, which motivates the use of the suboptimal but less complex MMSE detector. An intermediate detector in terms of complexity and performance is the decision feedback (DF) detector. In the second part of the thesis, we consider the problem of joint bit loading and precoding assuming the DF detector. The main result shows that for a DF MIMO transceiver where the bit loading is jointly optimized with the transceiver filters, orthogonal transmission is optimal. As a consequence, inter-symbol interference is eliminated and the DF part of the receiver is actually not required, only the linear part is needed. The proof is based on a relaxation of the discrete set of available bit rates on the individual subchannels to the set of positive real numbers. In practice, the signal constellations are discrete and the optimal relaxed bit loading has to be rounded. It is shown that the loss due to rounding is small, and an upper bound on the maximum loss is derived. Numerical results are presented that confirm the theoretical results and demonstrate that orthogonal transmission and the truly optimal DF design perform almost equally well. An algorithm that makes the filter design problem especially easy to solve is presented.

    As a byproduct from the work on decision feedback detectors we also present some work on the problem of optimizing a Schur-convex objective under a linearly shifted, or skewed, majorization constraint. Similar to the case with a regular majorization constraint, the solution is found to be the same for the entire class of cost functions. Furthermore, it is shown that the problem is equivalent to identifying the convex hull under a simple polygon defined by the constraint parameters. This leads to an algorithm that produces the exact optimum with linear computational complexity. As applications, two unitary precoder designs for MIMO communication systems that use heterogenous signal constellations and employ DF detection at the receiver are presented.

    Bit and power loading for spatial multiplexing using partial channel state information2004Ingår i: 2004 ITG: WORKSHOP ON SMART ANTENNAS, PROCEEDINGS, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2004, s. 152-159Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Using information about the channel at the transmitter can improve the performance of Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) communication systems. When perfect Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the transmitter, data can be multiplexed and optimized over independent spatial channels. However, when the available channel information is imperfect or partial, crosstalk between the spatial channels is inevitable, complicating the design of the transmitted data. This paper presents a novel practical bit and power loading algorithm, Spatial Loading based on Incomplete Channel Estimates (SLICE), that enables the use of partial CSI for spatial multiplexing. An approximation for the Bit Error Rate (BER) of the spatial channels is derived that facilitates the loading. Numerical experiments demonstrate performance improvements compared with methods that do not consider the partial information available.

    Adaptive spatial bit loading using imperfect channel state information2005Ingår i: Proceedings of International Workshop on Optical and Electronic Device Technology for Access Networks, Aalborg, Denmark, 2005Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Using information about the channel at the transmitter can improve the performance of multi-input multi-output (MIMO) communication systems. When perfect channel state information (CSI) is available, data can be multiplexed and optimized over independent spatial channels. When the available channel information is imperfect or partial, crosstalk between the spatial channels is inevitable complicating the design since the performance of the spatial streams has to be considered jointly. In this paper an efficient algorithm for bit and power loading on the spatial channels is presented. Focus is on maximizing the data rate at fixed bit error rate and reasonable computational complexity.

    Design of robust linear dispersion codes based on imperfect2006Ingår i: Proceedings European Signal Processing Conference, 2006Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper concerns the design of codes for multiple-input multiple-output communication systems. The transmission scheme utilizes imperfect channel state information (CSI) in the design, assuming that maximum-likelihood detection is employed at the receiver. It is argued that channel diagonalizing codes are not robust to imperfections in the CSI. A robust non-diagonalizing code with good minimum distance separation between received codewords is proposed. The design is very suitable for systems operating at high data rates since the complexity scales nicely with the number of antennas. Numerical results show that the proposed code outperforms a state-of-the-art diagonalizing precoder.

    Micromachined Waveguides with Integrated Silicon Absorbers and Attenuators at 220-325 GHz2018Ingår i: IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium Digest, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. , 2018, s. 579-582Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper reports for the first time on micromachined waveguides with integrated micromachined silicon absorbers. In contrast to epoxy-based microwave absorbers, micromachined lossy silicon absorbers are fully compatible with high temperature fabrication and assembly processes for micromachined waveguides. Furthermore, micromachining enables the fabrication of exact, near ideal taper tips for the silicon absorbers, whereas the tip of epoxy-based absorbers cannot be shaped accurately and reproducibly for small waveguides. Silicon of different conductivity is a very well understood and characterized dielectric material, in contrast to conventional absorber materials which are not specified above 60 GHz. Micromachined silicon waveguides with integrated absorbers and attenuators were designed, fabricated and characterized in the frequency band of 220 - 325 GHz. The return and insertion loss for various taper-geometry variations of double-tip tapered absorbers and attenuators was studied. The average return loss for the best investigated device is 19 dB over the whole band. The insertion loss of the two-port attenuators is 16 - 33 dB for different designs and shows an excellent agreement to the simulated results. The best measured devices of the one-port absorbers exhibit an average and worst-case return loss of 22 dB and 14 dB, respectively, over the whole band. The return loss is not characterized by a good simulation-measurement match, which is most likely attributed to placement tolerances of the absorbers in the waveguide cavities affecting the return but not the insertion loss.

    An approach for location area planning in a personal communication services network (PCSN)2004Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, ISSN 1536-1276, E-ISSN 1558-2248, Vol. 3, nr 4, s. 1176-1187Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with an approach for planning location areas (LAs) in a personal communication services network (PCSN) to be overlaid on an existing wired network. Given the average speed of mobile terminals, the number of mobile switching centers (MSCs), their locations, call handling capacity of each MSC, handoff cost between adjacent cells and call arrival rate, an important consideration in a PCSN is to identify the cells in every LA to be connected to the corresponding NISC in a cost effective manner. In this work, while planning a location area, we present a two-step approach, namely optimization of total system recurring cost (subproblem I) and optimization of hybrid cost (subproblem II). The planning first determines the optimum number of cells in an LA from subproblem I. Then, it finds out the exact LAs by assigning cells to the switches, while optimizing the hybrid cost which comprises the handoff cost and the cable cost, in subproblem II. This divide-and-conquer strategy provides a practical way for designing LAs. As our approach toward LA planning takes into accounts both cost and network planning factors, this unique combination will be of great interest to PCSN designers. It develops an optimum network planning method for a wide range of call-to-mobility ratios that minimizes the total system recurring cost while still ensuring a good system performance. Our study shows that acceptable results are achievable with a reasonable computational effort, which supports the engineered planning of a PCSN.

    Secure VoIP: call establishment and media protection2005Ingår i: Proceedings of 2nd Workshop on Securing Voice over IP, 2005Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we study the possibility of establishing a secure VoIP telephone call using SIP. Different security services relevant for VoIP are presented and we argue that end-to-end authentication and encryption should be provided by default. For media protection we evaluate the possibility of using either SRTP or IPSec, and we examine several alternatives of how a secure VoIP call can be established. The solution we suggest is based on SRTP for media protection, S/MIME and MIKEY for end-to-end authentication and keying, and TLS for hop-by-hop protection of SIP messages. We also present measurements of secure call establishment for MIKEY, SRTP and IPSec using our own SIP user agent (minisip). Our conclusion is that the call establishment delay will not be significantly affected by introducing these security protocols.

    A wavelength sharing and assignment heuristic to minimize the number of wavelength converters in resilient WDM networks2009Ingår i: Proceedings of the 2009 7th International Workshop on the Design of Reliable Communication Networks, DRCN 2009 / [ed] Medhi, D; Tipper, D; Doucette, J, 2009, s. 319-326Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    With the successful introduction of reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexers (ROADMs) and related technologies, WDM networks are now growing in the number of optical nodes, wavelengths, and lambda services supported. In addition, shared path protection mechanisms - whereby lambda services are allowed to share protection wavelength channels - are possible at the optical (WDM) layer. Efficient strategies must be devised to both determine the set of services that must share a common protection wavelength channel and assign wavelengths to every service. One objective of these strategies is to minimize the total number of wavelength converters (WCs), which are required every time the wavelength continuity constraint cannot be met. This paper presents a scalable and efficient heuristic, whose goal is to minimize the number of WCs in resilient WDM networks supporting static sets of shared path protection lambda services. The heuristic comprises a set of polynomial algorithms that are executed sequentially to obtain a sub-optimal solution. In small size instances of the problem, the heuristic is compared against the optimal solution obtained from ILP formulation. For large size instances - tens of thousands of lambda services and hundreds of nodes - the heuristic yields an average number of WCs that is close to be linear in the number of services, despite the fact that the wavelength sharing factor increases.

    Mobile positioning in MIMO system using particle filtering2007Ingår i: 2007 IEEE 66TH VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE, VOLS 1-5, 2007, s. 792-798Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    his paper represents the results of a simulation study on positioning of a mobile unit in MIMO settings. We used two different approaches for modeling the mobile movement, combined with a simple geometrical model for the MIMO channel. Three different particle filters were implemented for the position estimation. The results show that all three filters are able to achieve estimation accuracy required by Federal Communication Commission. The dimensionality of the particle filter state space is independent of the number of antenna elements, and it is possible to increase the number of antennas and use more sophisticated channel models without changing the filtering algorithms.

    On the strong converse for the broadcast capacity region of two-phase bidirectional relaying2007Ingår i: Proceedings of the 2007 IEEE Information Theory Workshop on Information Theory for Wireless Networks, ITW, 2007, s. 111-115Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In our previous work we determined the weak capacity region for the broadcast phase of two-phase bidirectional relay channel. It turned out that the set of achievable rates obtained by optimizing over the two communication phases exceeds that obtained by using the network coding principle, i.e. by applying XOR to the decoded messages. In this paper we supplement our result by a proof of the strong converse with respect to the maximum error probability to the coding theorem for the broadcast phase. This result implies that the capacity region of that phase remains constant for a certain range of values of average error parameters [epsilon(1), epsilon(2)].

Measurements of typical ambient radiation have been conducted with respect to power levels and frequency to determine which communication signals are suitable for harvesting. The measurement campaign showed that the WiFi frequency band at 2.45 GHz is a good candidate for indoors applications. A Greinacher voltage doubler is used for the rectification. A multiple input single output - MISO scalable scheme approach is implemented that is able to provide a DC differential output voltage. Simulated and experimental results proved the MISO rectenna to be an efficient scheme for RF harvesting.

    Beamforming Utilizing Channel Norm Feedback in Multiuser MIMO Systems2007Självständigt arbete på avancerad nivå (masterexamen), 20 poäng / 30 hpStudentuppsats (Examensarbete)
    Abstract [en]

    Cellular wireless communication like GSM and WLAN has become an important part of the infrastructure. The next generation of wireless systems is believed to be based on multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO), where all units are equipped with multiple antennas. In contrast to the single antenna case, MIMO systems may exploit beamforming to concentrate the transmission in the direction of the receiver. The receiver may in turn use beamforming to maximize the received signal power and to suppress the interference from other transmissions. The capacity of a MIMO system has the potential of increasing linearly with the number of antennas, but the performance gain is limited in practice by the lack of channel information at the transmitter side.

    This thesis considers downlink strategies where the transmitter utilizes channel norm feedback to perform beamforming that maximizes the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for a single beam. Two optimal strategies with feedback of, either the channel squared norm to each receive antenna, or the maximum of them are introduced and analyzed in terms of conditional covariance, eigenbeamforming, minimum mean-square error (MMSE) estimation of the SNR and the corresponding estimation variance. These strategies are compared under fair conditions to the upper bound and strategies without feedback or with pure SNR feedback. Simulations show that both strategies perform well, even if spatial division multiple access (SDMA) is required to exploit the full potential.

    The beamforming strategies are generalized to the multiuser case where a scheduler schedule users in time slots in which their channel realization seems to be strong and thereby support high data rates. The gain of exploiting multiuser diversity is shown in simulations.

    The thesis is concluded by a generalization to a multi-cell environment with intercell interference. Optimal and suboptimal receive beamforming is analyzed and used to propose approximate beamforming strategies based on channel norm feedback.

    Multiantenna Cellular Communications: Channel Estimation, Feedback, and Resource Allocation2011Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of multiple antennas at base stations and user devices is a key component in the design of cellular communication systems that can meet the capacity demands of tomorrow. The downlink transmission from base stations to users is particularly limiting, both from a theoretical and a practical perspective, since user devices should be simple and power-efficient, and because many applications primarily create downlink traffic (e.g., video streaming). The potential gain of employing multiple antennas for downlink transmission is well recognized: the total data throughput increases linearly with the number of transmit antennas if the spatial dimension is exploited for simultaneous transmission to multiple users. In the design of practical cellular systems, the actual benefit of multiuser multiantenna transmission is limited by a variety of factors, including acquisition and accuracy of channel information, transmit power, channel conditions, cell density, user mobility, computational complexity, and the level of cooperation between base stations in the transmission design.

    The thesis considers three main components of downlink communications: 1) estimation of current channel conditions using training signaling; 2) efficient feedback of channel estimates; and 3) allocation of transmit resources (e.g., power, time and spatial dimensions) to users. In each area, the thesis seeks to provide a greater understanding of the interplay between different system properties. This is achieved by generalizing the underlying assumptions in prior work and providing both extensions of previous outcomes and entirely new mathematical results, along with supporting numerical examples. Some of the main thesis contributions can be summarized as follows.

    A framework is proposed for estimation of different channel quantities using a common optimized training sequence. Furthermore, it is proved that each user should only be allocated one data stream and utilize its antennas for receive combining and interference rejection, instead of using the antennas for reception of multiple data streams. This fundamental result is proved under both exact channel acquisition and under imperfections from channel estimation and limited feedback. This also has positive implications on the hardware and system design.

    Next, a general mathematical model is proposed for joint analysis of cellular systems with different levels of base station cooperation. The optimal multicell resource allocation can in general only be found with exponential computational complexity, but a systematic algorithm is proposed to find the optimal solution for the purpose of offline benchmarking. A parametrization of the optimal solution is also derived, creating a foundation for heuristic low-complexity algorithms that can provide close-to-optimal performance. This is exemplified by proposing centralized and distributed multicell transmission strategies and by evaluating these using multicell channel measurements.

    Optimality Properties and Low-Complexity Solutions to Coordinated Multicell Transmission2010Ingår i: 2010 IEEE GLOBAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE GLOBECOM 2010, IEEE , 2010, s. 1-6Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Base station cooperation can theoretically improve the throughput of multicell systems by coordinating interference and serving cell edge terminals through multiple base stations. In practice, the extent of cooperation is limited by the increase in backhaul signaling and computational demands. To address these concerns, we propose a novel distributed cooperation structure where each base station has responsibility for the interference towards a set of terminals, while only serving a subset of them with data. Weighted sum rate maximization is considered, and conditions for beamforming optimality and the optimal transmission structure are derived using Lagrange duality theory. This leads to distributed low-complexity transmission strategies, which are evaluated on measured multiantenna channels in a typical urban multicell environment.

    Receive combining vs. multistream multiplexing in multiuser MIMO systems2011Ingår i: Communication Technologies Workshop (Swe-CTW), 2011 IEEE Swedish, IEEE Communications Society, 2011, s. 103-108Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In single-user transmission, the receive antennas should preferably be used to enable multiplexing. The situation is different under multiuser transmission, where only the number of transmit antennas limits the multiplexing gain. The system therefore has the choice between sending one stream per scheduled user (i.e., combining receive antennas for diversity) or selecting a smaller number of users and multiplex multiple streams to each of them. This tradeoff is investigated herein, based on zero-forcing (with receive antenna combining) and block-diagonalization precoding which represents the two extremes. Based on asymptotic analysis and numerical examples, the unexpected conclusion is that each user only should receive one stream and use its antennas to achieve a receive combining gain. This is explained by zero-forcing having a stronger resilience towards spatial correlation and larger benefit from multiuser diversity. This fundamental result has positive implications for the design of multiuser systems as it reduces the hardware constraints at the user devices.

    Computational Framework for Optimal Robust Beamforming in Coordinated Multicell Systems2011Ingår i: Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing (CAMSAP), IEEE Signal Processing Society, 2011, s. 245-248Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Coordinated beamforming can significantly improvethe performance of cellular systems through joint interferencemanagement. Unfortunately, such beamforming optimization problems are typically NP-hard in multicell scenarios, making heuristic beamforming the only feasible choice in practice. Thispaper proposes a new branch-reduce-and-bound algorithm thatsolves such optimization problems globally, with a complexitysuitable for benchmarking and analysis. Compared to priorwork, the framework handles robustness to uncertain intercell interference and numerical analysis shows higher efficiency.

    Schur-convexity of the Symbol Error Rate in Correlated MIMO Systems with Precoding and Space-time Coding2008Ingår i: Proceedings of the twentieth Nordic Conference on Radio Science and Communications, 2008Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper analyzes the symbol error rate (SER) of spatially correlated multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems with linear precoding, space-time block codes, and long-term statistical channel state information at the transmitter. Majorization theory and the notion of Schur-convexity is used to show how the SER depends on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), on the transmit and receive correlation, and on the choice of precoder. Depending on these conditions, the Chernoff bound on the SER is shown to be Schur- convex (i.e., increasing with the amount of correlation) with respect to the receive correlation, while it is Schur-convex at high SNR and Schur-concave (i.e., decreasing with increasing amount of correlation) at low SNR with respect to the transmit correlation. These properties are inherited by the exact SER, as shown analytically and illustrated numerically.

    Beamforming utilizing channel norm feedback in multiuser MIMO systems2007Ingår i: IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Advances in Wireless Communications, IEEE , 2007, Vol. SPAWC, s. 1-5Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The problem of beamforming and rate estimation in a multi-user downlink multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with limited feedback and statistical channel information at the transmitter is considered. In order to exploit the spatial properties of the channel, the norm of the channel to each receive antenna is computed. We propose to feed back the largest norm to the transmitter and derive the conditional second and fourth order channel moments in order to design the downlink beamforming weights. Similar approaches have previously been presented for multi-user multiple-input single-output (MISO) systems. Herein, these techniques are generalized to MIMO systems, by either antenna selection or receive beamforming at the receiver. Two eigenbeamforming strategies are proposed and shown to outperform opportunistic beamforming, based on similar feedback information.

    Exploiting Quantized Channel Norm Feedback Through Conditional Statistics in Arbitrarily Correlated MIMO Systems2009Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 57, nr 10, s. 4027-4041Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the design of narrowband multi-antenna systems, a limiting factor is the amount of channel state information (CSI) available at the transmitter. This is especially evident in multi-user systems, where the spatial user separability determines the multi-plexing gain, but it is also important for transmission-rate adaptation in single-user systems. To limit the feedback load, the unknown and multi-dimensional channel needs to be represented by a limited number of bits. When combined with long-term channel statistics, the norm of the channel matrix has been shown to provide substantial CSI that permits efficient user selection, linear precoder design, and rate adaptation. Herein, we consider quantized feedback of the squared Frobenius norm in a Rayleigh fading environment with arbitrary spatial correlation. The conditional channel statistics are characterized and their moments are derived for both identical, distinct, and sets of repeated eigenvalues. These results are applied for minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimation of signal and interference powers in single- and multi-user systems, for the purpose of reliable rate adaptation and resource allocation. The problem of efficient feedback quantization is discussed and an entropy-maximizing framework is developed where the post-user-selection distribution can be taken into account in the design of the quantization levels. The analytic results of this paper are directly applicable in many widely used communication techniques, such as space-time block codes, linear precoding, space division multiple access (SDMA), and scheduling.

    Feedback design in multiuser MIMO systems using quantization splitting and hybrid instantaneous/statistical channel information2008Ingår i: ICT-MobileSummit 2008 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham and Miriam Cunningham, IIMC International Information Management Corporation , 2008, , s. 8Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In the design of next generation multiuser communication systems, multiple antenna transmission is an essential part providing spatial multiplexing gain and allowing efficient use of resources. A major limiting factor in the resource allocation is the amount of channel state information (CSI) available at the transmitter, particularly in multiuser systems where the feedback from each user terminal must be limited. To this effect we propose two independent approaches for an efficient representation of the channel in multiuser MIMO systems. In the first approach, channel quantization is considered where the total number of feedback bits is limited. A resource allocation scheme is proposed where the available rate is split between the scheduling phase, where all users feed back a coarse CSI quantization, and the precoding phase where the selected receivers refine their CSI. The optimum splitting of the available feedback rate provides a large increase in performance and even simple heuristic splitting gives a noticeable advantage. In the second approach, we exploit a combination of instantaneous and statistical channel information. For spatially correlated Rayleigh and Ricean channels, it is shown that the CSI to large extent can be represented by the channel norm when the long-term channel statistics are known. Within a minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimation framework, feedback of a few bits of the quantized channel norm is sufficient to perform efficient resource allocation and achieve performance close to that of full CSI.

    Optimality Properties, Distributed Strategies, and Measurement-Based Evaluation of Coordinated Multicell OFDMA Transmission2011Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 59, nr 12, s. 6086-6101Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The throughput of multicell systems is inherently limited by interference andthe available communication resources. Coordinated resource allocation is the key to efficient performance, but the demand on backhaul signaling andcomputational resources grows rapidly with number of cells, terminals, andsubcarriers. To handle this, we propose a novel multicell framework with dynamic cooperation clusters where each terminal is jointly served by a small set of base stations. Each base station coordinates interference to neighboring terminals only, thus limiting backhaul signalling and making the framework scalable. This framework can describe anything from interference channels to ideal joint multicell transmission. The resource allocation (i.e., precoding and scheduling) is formulated as an optimization problem (P1) with performance described by arbitrary monotonic functions of the signal-to-interference-and-noise ratios (SINRs) and arbitrary linear power constraints. Although (P1) is nonconvex and difficult to solve optimally, we are able to prove: 1) optimalityof single-stream beamforming; 2) conditions for full power usage; and 3) a precoding parametrization based on a few parameters between zero and one. These optimality properties are used to propose low-complexity strategies: both a centralized scheme and a distributed version that only requires local channel knowledge and processing. We evaluate the performance on measuredmulticell channels and observe that the proposed strategies achieve close-to-optimal performance among centralized and distributed solutions, respectively. In addition, we show that multicell interference coordination can give substantial improvements in sum performance, but that joint transmission is very sensitive to synchronization errors and that some terminals can experience performance degradations.

    Optimal Resource Allocation in Coordinated Multi-Cell Systems2013Bok (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of multiple antennas at base stations is a key component in the design of cellular communication systems that can meet high-capacity demands in the downlink. Under ideal conditions, the gain of employing multiple antennas is well-recognized: the data throughput increases linearly with the number of transmit antennas if the spatial dimension is utilized to serve many users in parallel. The practical performance of multi-cell systems is, however, limited by a variety of nonidealities, such as insufficient channel knowledge, high computational complexity, heterogeneous user conditions, limited backhaul capacity, transceiver impairments, and the constrained level of coordination between base stations.

    This tutorial presents a general framework for modeling different multi-cell scenarios, including clustered joint transmission, coordinated beamforming, interference channels, cognitive radio, and spectrum sharing between operators. The framework enables joint analysis and insights that are both scenario independent and dependent.

    The performance of multi-cell systems depends on the resource allocation; that is, how the time, power, frequency, and spatial resources are divided among users. A comprehensive characterization of resource allocation problem categories is provided, along with the signal processing algorithms that solve them. The inherent difficulties are revealed: (a) the overwhelming spatial degrees-of-freedom created by the multitude of transmit antennas; and (b) the fundamental tradeoff between maximizing aggregate system throughput and maintaining user fairness. The tutorial provides a pragmatic foundation for resource allocation where the system utility metric can be selected to achieve practical feasibility. The structure of optimal resource allocation is also derived, in terms of beamforming parameterizations and optimal operating points.

    This tutorial provides a solid ground and understanding for optimization of practical multi-cell systems, including the impact of the nonidealities mentioned above. The Matlab code is available online for some of the examples and algorithms in this tutorial.

    This documentation is distributed along with the code package mentioned above. The package contains Matlab implementations of many of the algorithms described in [1]. The use of these algorithms is exemplified by Matlab scripts (m-files) that generate some of the figures shown in the monograph. The algorithms are briefly described in Section 5 and the selected example figures are described and shown in Section 6. Please note that the all channel vectors are generated randomly as Rayleigh fading in these examples, thus this code package is not able to reproduce exactly the same curves as was shown in the monograph.

    Impact of Spatial Correlation and Precoding Design in OSTBC MIMO Systems2010Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, ISSN 1536-1276, E-ISSN 1558-2248, Vol. 9, nr 11, s. 3578-3589Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The impact of transmission design and spatial correlation on the symbol error rate (SER) is analyzed for multi-antenna communication links. The receiver has perfect channel state information (CSI), while the transmitter has either statistical or no CSI. The transmission is based on orthogonal space-time block codes (OSTBCs) and linear precoding. The precoding strategy that minimizes the worst-case SER is derived for the case when the transmitter has no CSI. Based on this strategy, the intuitive result that spatial correlation degrades the SER performance is proved mathematically. In the case when the transmitter knows the channel statistics, the correlation matrix is assumed to be jointly-correlated (a generalization of the Kronecker model). The eigenvectors of the SER-optimal precoding matrix are shown to originate from the correlation matrix and the remaining power allocation is a convex problem. Equal power allocation is SER-optimal at high SNR. Beamforming is SER-optimal at low SNR, or for increasing constellation sizes, and its optimality range is characterized. A heuristic low-complexity power allocation is proposed and evaluated numerically. Finally, it is proved analytically that receive-side correlation always degrades the SER. Transmit-side correlation will however improve the SER at low to medium SNR, while its impact is negligible at high SNR.

    Massive MIMO and small cells: Improving energy efficiency by optimal soft-cell coordination2013Ingår i: 2013 20th International Conference on Telecommunications, ICT 2013, IEEE Computer Society, 2013, s. 6632074-Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    To improve the cellular energy efficiency, without sacrificing quality-of-service (QoS) at the users, the network topology must be densified to enable higher spatial reuse. We analyze a combination of two densification approaches, namely "massive" multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) base stations and small-cell access points. If the latter are operator-deployed, a spatial soft-cell approach can be taken where the multiple transmitters serve the users by joint non-coherent multiflow beamforming. We minimize the total power consumption (both dynamic emitted power and static hardware power) while satisfying QoS constraints. This problem is proved to have a hidden convexity that enables efficient solution algorithms. Interestingly, the optimal solution promotes exclusive assignment of users to transmitters. Furthermore, we provide promising simulation results showing how the total power consumption can be greatly improved by combining massive MIMO and small cells; this is possible with both optimal and low-complexity beamforming.

    Optimizing multi-cell massive MIMO for spectral efficiency: How Many users should be scheduled?2014Ingår i: 2014 IEEE Global Conference on Signal and Information Processing, GlobalSIP 2014, IEEE conference proceedings, 2014, s. 612-616Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Massive MIMO is a promising technique to increase the spectral efficiency of cellular networks, by deploying antenna arrays with hundreds or thousands of active elements at the base stations and performing coherent beamforming. A common rule-of-thumb is that these systems should have an order of magnitude more antennas, N, than scheduled users, K, because the users' channels are then likely to be quasi-orthogonal. However, it has not been proved that this rule-of-thumb actually maximizes the spectral efficiency. In this paper, we analyze how the optimal number of scheduled users, K, depends on N and other system parameters. The value of K in the large-N regime is derived in closed form, while simulations are used to show what happens at finite N, in different interference scenarios, and for different beamforming.

    Massive MIMO with Non-Ideal Arbitrary Arrays: Hardware Scaling Laws and Circuit-Aware Design2015Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, ISSN 1536-1276, E-ISSN 1558-2248, Vol. 14, nr 8, s. 4353-4368Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Massive multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) systems are cellular networks where the base stations (BSs) are equipped with unconventionally many antennas, deployed on co-located or distributed arrays. Huge spatial degrees-of-freedom are achieved by coherent processing over these massive arrays, which provide strong signal gains, resilience to imperfect channel knowledge, and low interference. This comes at the price of more infrastructure; the hardware cost and circuit power consumption scale linearly/affinely with the number of BS antennas N. Hence, the key to cost-efficient deployment of large arrays is low-cost antenna branches with low circuit power, in contrast to today's conventional expensive and power-hungry BS antenna branches. Such low-cost transceivers are prone to hardware imperfections, but it has been conjectured that the huge degrees-of-freedom would bring robustness to such imperfections. We prove this claim for a generalized uplink system with multiplicative phase-drifts, additive distortion noise, and noise amplification. Specifically, we derive closed-form expressions for the user rates and a scaling law that shows how fast the hardware imperfections can increase with N while maintaining high rates. The connection between this scaling law and the power consumption of different transceiver circuits is rigorously exemplified. This reveals that one can make the circuit power increase as root N, instead of linearly, by careful circuit-aware system design.

    Channel quantization design in multiuser MIMO systems: Asymptotic versus practical conclusions2011Ingår i: Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), 2011 IEEE International Conference on, IEEE Signal Processing Society, 2011, s. 3072-3075Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Feedback of channel state information (CSI) is necessary to achieve high throughput and low outage probability in multiuser multi antenna systems. There are two types of CSI: directional and quality information. Many papers have analyzed the importance of these in asymptotic regimes. However, we show that such results should be handled with care, as very different conclusions can be drawn depending on the spatial correlation and number of users. There fore, we propose a quantization framework and evaluate the tradeoff between directional and quality feedback under practical conditions.

    Exploiting long-term statistics in spatially correlated multi-user MIMO systems with quantized channel norm feedback2008Ingår i: 2008 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ACOUSTICS, SPEECH AND SIGNAL PROCESSING, IEEE , 2008, s. 3117-3120Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    In wireless multiple antenna and multi-user systems, the spatial dimensions may be exploited to increase the performance by means of antenna gain, spatial diversity, and multi-user diversity. A limiting factor in such systems is the channel information required by the transmitter to control the intra-cell interference. Herein, the properties of spatially correlated channels with long-term statistical information at the transmitter and fixed-rate feedback of the quantized Euclidean channel norm are analyzed using a spectral subspace decomposition framework. A spatial division multiple access scheme is proposed with interference suppression at the receiver and joint scheduling and zero-forcing beamforming at the transmitter. Closed-form expressions for first and second order moments of the feedback conditional channel statistics are derived. It is shown that only a few bits of feedback are required to achieve reliable rate estimation and weighted sum-rate maximization.

    Pilot-based Bayesian Channel Norm Estimation in Rayleigh Fading Multi-antenna Systems2008Ingår i: Proceedings of the twentieth Nordic Conference on Radio Science and Communications, Växjö, Sweden, 2008Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Pilot-based estimation of the squared Euclidean norm of the channel vector of a Rayleigh fading system is considered. Unlike most previous work in the area of estimation of multiple antenna channels, we consider Bayesian estimation where the long-term channel statistics are known a priori. Closed-form expressions of the minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimator and its mean squared error (MSE) are derived for the cases of either an unweighted or a weighted unitary pilot matrix. The problem of finding the optimal pilot weighting, in the sense of minimizing the average MSE, is solved and a simple algorithm is proposed to achieve this power allocation numerically. The numerical evaluation shows that an optimal weighting can significantly improve the estimation quality in spatially correlated environments.

    Post-User-Selection Quantization and Estimation of Correlated Frobenius and Spectral Channel Norms2008Ingår i: 2008 IEEE 19TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PERSONAL, INDOOR AND MOBILE RADIO COMMUNICATIONS, NEW YORK: IEEE , 2008, s. 2751-2756Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers quantization and exact minimum mean square error (MMSE) estimation of the squared Frobenius norm and the squared spectral norm of a Rayleigh fading multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) channel with one-sided spatial correlation. The Frobenius and spectral norms are of great importance when describing the achievable capacity of many wireless communication systems; in particularly, they correspond to the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of space-time block coded and maximum ratio combining transmissions, respectively. Herein, a general quantization framework is presented, where the quantization levels are determined to maximize the feedback entropy. Quantization based on the post-user-selection distribution is discussed, and analyzed for a specific scheduler. Finally, exact results on MMSE estimation of the capacity and the SNR, conditioned on a quantized channel norm, are presented.

    Distributed Multicell and Multiantenna Precoding: Characterization and Performance Evaluation2009Ingår i: GLOBECOM 2009: 2009 IEEE GLOBAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS CONFERENCE, VOLS 1-8 / [ed] Ulema M, IEEE , 2009, s. 1-6Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers downlink multiantenna communication with base stations that perform cooperative precoding in a distributed fashion. Most previous work in the area has assumed that transmitters have common knowledge of both data symbols of all users and full or partial channel state information (CSI). Herein, we assume that each base station only has local CSI, either instantaneous or statistical. For the case of instantaneous CSI, a parametrization of the beamforming vectors used to achieve the outer boundary of the achievable rate region is obtained for two multi-antenna transmitters and two single-antenna receivers. Distributed generalizations of classical beamforming approaches that satisfy this parametrization are provided, and it is shown how the distributed precoding design can be improved using the so-called virtual SINR framework [1]. Conceptually analog results for both the parametrization and the beamforming design are derived in the case of local statistical CSI. Heuristics on the distributed power allocation are provided in both cases, and the performance is illustrated numerically.

    Optimal Coordinated Beamforming in the Multicell Downlink with Transceiver Impairments2012Ingår i: 2012 IEEE Global Telecommunications Conference (GLOBECOM), New York: IEEE conference proceedings, 2012, s. 4775-4780Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Physical wireless transceivers suffer from a variety of impairments that distort the transmitted and received signals. Their degrading impact is particularly evident in modern systems with multiuser transmission, high transmit power, and low-cost devices, but their existence is routinely ignored in the optimization literature for multicell transmission. This paper provides a detailed analysis of coordinated beamforming in the multicell downlink. We solve two optimization problems under a transceiver impairment model and derive the structure of the optimal solutions. We show numerically that these solutions greatly reduce the impact of impairments, compared with beamforming developed for ideal transceivers. Although the so-called multiplexing gain is zero under transceiver impairments, we show that the gain of multiplexing can be large at practical SNRs.

    Capacity Limits and Multiplexing Gains of MIMO Channels with Transceiver Impairments2013Ingår i: IEEE Communications Letters, ISSN 1089-7798, E-ISSN 1558-2558, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 91-94Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The capacity of ideal MIMO channels has a high-SNR slope that equals the minimum of the number of transmit and receive antennas. This letter analyzes if this result holds when there are distortions from physical transceiver impairments. We prove analytically that such physical MIMO channels have a finite upper capacity limit, for any channel distribution and SNR. The high-SNR slope thus collapses to zero. This appears discouraging, but we prove the encouraging result that the relative capacity gain of employing MIMO is at least as large as with ideal transceivers.

    Robust Monotonic Optimization Framework for Multicell MISO Systems2012Ingår i: IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, ISSN 1053-587X, E-ISSN 1941-0476, Vol. 60, nr 5, s. 2508-2523Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The performance of multiuser systems is both difficult to measure fairly and to optimize. Most resource allocation problems are nonconvex and NP-hard, even under simplifying assumptions such as perfect channel knowledge, homogeneous channel properties among users, and simple power constraints. We establish a general optimization framework that systematically solves these problems to global optimality. The proposed branch-reduce-and-bound (BRB) algorithm handles general multicell downlink systems with single-antenna users, multiantenna transmitters, arbitrary quadratic power constraints, and robustness to channel uncertainty. A robust fairness-profile optimization (RFO) problem is solved at each iteration, which is a quasiconvex problem and a novel generalization of max-min fairness. The BRB algorithm is computationally costly, but it shows better convergence than the previously proposed outer polyblock approximation algorithm. Our framework is suitable for computing benchmarks in general multicell systems with or without channel uncertainty. We illustrate this by deriving and evaluating a zero-forcing solution to the general problem.

    Modeling Analog to Digital Converters at Radio Frequency2007Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Det här arbetet handlar om att ta fram beteendemodeller av analog till digital omvandlare avsedda för tillämpningar i radiofrekvensområdet. Det gäller tillämpningar inom telekommunikation men även in test- och mätinstrument där omvandlingen från analoga till digitala signaler ofta är en prestandamässig flaskhals. Modellerna är avsedda att användas för att efterbehandla utdata från omvandlaren och på så sätt förbättra prestanda på den digitala signalen. Genom att skapa modeller av verkliga omvandlare och hur dessa avviker från ett idealt beteende kan ofullständigheter korrigeras genom så kallad postkorrigering.

    Beteendemodeller innebär att genererar en lämplig insignal, mäta utdata och beräkna en modell. För omvandlare i radiofrekvensområdet ställs höga krav på instrumentering. Den testutrustningen som används är baserad på moderna högprestanda instrument som har kompletterats med specialbyggd utrustning för signalkonditionering och datainsamling. I avhandlingen har även olika insignaler utvärderats med såväl teoretisk som experimentell analys.

    Det finns ett flertal olika varianter av modeller för att modulera ett olinjär, dynamisk system. För att få en parametereffektiv modell har utgångspunkten varit att utgå från en Volterramodell som på ett optimalt sätt beskriver svagt olinjära dynamiska system, så som analog till digital omvandlare, men som är alltför omfattande i antal parametrar. Volterramodellens har sedan reducerats till en mindre parameterintensiv, modellerstruktur på så sätt att Volterrakärnans symmetriegenskaper jämförts med symmetrierna hos andra modeller. En alternativ metod är att använda en Kautz-Volterramodell. Den har samma generella egenskaper som Volterramodellen, men är inte lika parameterkrävande. I den här avhandlingen redovisas experimentella resultat av Kautz-Volterramodellen som i framtiden kommer att vara intressanta att använda för postkorrigeringen.

    För att kunna beskriva beteenden som en dynamiska olinjära modellen inte klarar av har modellen kompletterats med en statisk styckvis linjär modellkomponent. I avhandlingen presenteras en sluten lösning för att identifiera samtliga paramervärden i modellen. Vidare har det i avhandlingen genomförs en analys av hur respektive komponent påverkar prestanda på utsignalen. Därigenom erhålls ett mått på den maximala prestandaförbättring som kan uppnås om felet kan elimineras.

    High dynamic range test-bed for characterization of analog-to-digital converters up to 500 MSPS2005Ingår i: 14th Symposium on New Technologies in Measurement and Instrumentation and 10th Workshop on ADC Modelling and Testing, IMEKO-International Measurement Federation Secretariat , 2005, s. 601-604Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    A measurement set-up of for the characterization of analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) is described. The measurement set-up characterizes ADCs up to 16 bits at 350 MHz (option for >500 MHz). Testing dynamic performance of high-speed ADCs is regarded as difficult and expensive. By using existing state-of-the-art instruments in combination with specially designed amplifiers and filters, a high performance, cost efficient test-bed has been built-up. Practical performance corresponds to ADC datasheet and exceeds the performance obtained if using commercial instruments only. Consequently, the measurement results represent the true performance of the ADC without impact from the test-bed

    Coding Strategies for Compress-and-Forward Relaying2010Licentiatavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The deployment of large communication networks with many autonomous devices has opened new possibilities for transmission. In particular cooperation among the different nodes has been identified as an enabling technology to satisfy the increasing demand of resources. This thesis studies different coding strategies for cooperation in relay channels in the form of compress-and-forward.

    In the first part of this thesis we consider the application of the newly introduced polar codes for compress-and-forward relaying in relay channels with orthogonal receivers. First we construct polar codes for compress-and-forward relaying based on Slepian-Wolf coding for the scenario where the capacity of the relay-destination channel is large enough. We then consider the more general picture where the capacity of the relay-destination channel is arbitrary. As for Wyner-Ziv coding, we employ nested polar codes for source and channel coding that allow for compression at any desired distortion and exploit the correlation between the observations of the source transmission to minimize the transmission rate over the relay-destination channel. This construction allows for transmission at the prominent compress-and-forward rate under some additional constraints.

    In the second part of this thesis we propose a new coding strategy for compress-and-forward relaying for half-duplex Gaussian channels. Our code construction is based on simple code concatenation for joint source-channel coding at the relay and iterative decoding at the destination. Finally, we propose several realizations of the structure at the relay and different iterative decoding algorithms in order to adapt the construction to different scenarios. Our simulation results show remarkable performance gains over other cooperation strategies such as decode-and-forward and amplify-and-forward in the scenarios where both source-relay and relay-destination links have low signal-to-noise ratios.

    On Compression and Coordination in Networks2013Doktorsavhandling, monografi (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    The current trends in communications suggest that the transfer of information between machines will soon predominate over the traditional human-oriented exchange. The new applications in machine-to-machine communications demand for a new type of networks that are much larger and, especially, much denser. However, there are currently many challenges that hinder an efficient deployment of such networks. In this thesis, we study some fundamental and practical aspects of two of these challenges: coordination and compression.

    The problem of coordination in a network is that of organizing the nodes to make them work together. The information-theoretic abstraction of this corresponds to generating actions with a desired empirical distribution. In this thesis, we construct polar codes for coordination for a variety of topologies. These codes combine elements of source coding, used to produce the actions, with elements of channel coding, used to obtain efficient descriptions. We show that our constructions achieve several fundamental coordination limits in a structured manner and with affordable complexity.

    Then, we consider the problem of coordinating communications to control the interference created to an external observer, measured in terms of its empirical distribution.

    To study the relationship between communication and interference, we introduce the notion of communication-interference capacity region. We obtain a complete characterization of this region for the single user scenario and a partial solution for a multiple user case. Our results reveal a fundamental tradeoff between communication, coordination, and interference in this type of networks.

    The second problem considered in this thesis, compression, involves capturing the essence of data and discarding the irrelevant aspects to obtain compact representations. This takes on a new dimension in networks, where the importance of data is no longer a local matter. In this thesis, we show that polar codes are also suitable for achieving information-theoretic bounds that involve compression in networks. More precisely, we extend our coordination constructions to realize compress-and-forward relaying with affordable complexity.

    In the last part of the thesis, we take a network approach to the problem of compressive sensing and develop methods for partial support set recovery. We use these methods to characterize the tradeoff between the measurement rate and the mean square error. Finally, we show that partial support recovery is instrumental in minimizing measurement outages when estimating random sparse signals.

    Comparison of Underlay and Overlay Spectrum Sharing Strategies in MISO Cognitive Channels2012Ingår i: 2012 7th International ICST Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communications (CROWNCOM), IEEE Computer Society, 2012, s. 224-229Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider an extension of the cognitive radio channel model in which the secondary transmitter has to obtain (“learn”) the primary message in a first phase rather than having non-causal knowledge of it. We propose an achievable rate region that combines elements of decode-and-forward relaying with coding for the pure cognitive radio channel model. Moreover, we find the choice of parameters that maximize the secondary rate under a primary rate constraint. Finally, we compare numerically the performance of our system to that of an underlay scheme that combines beamforming, rate splitting, and successive decoding. We observe that although the overlay design provides higher rates, the losses due to the first phase are quite severe. In fact, for the considered scenarios, cleverly designed underlay schemes can provide comparable performance.
