Abstract [en]

Heterogeneous networks (HetNets) that consist of macro base stations (MBSs) and small base stations (SBSs) are a key architectural drive for achieving the high spectral efficiency (SE) in 5G and beyond. Moreover, device-to-device (D2D) communications underlaying mobile networks can provide reliable communications and add SE gains. A major challenge in HetNets is the inter-cell interference (ICI) due to the coexistence of multiple tiers of base stations (BSs). To tackle this challenge, the enhanced inter-cell interference coordination (eICIC) scheme was adopted by 3GPP. In eICIC the MBSs mute their transmission during the so-called ᅵalmost blank subframesᅵ (ABS). This muting strategy causes resources reduction to the MBS users (MUEs). We propose the use of D2D communications to forward the transmission from the SBS to the MUEs during ABS subframes, by using inactive UEs to relay the downlink transmission, when the destination UEs are outside the coverage of the BS. We use a heuristic resource allocation (RA) algorithm based on the traffic load at the SBSs that integrates eICIC with D2D communications to avoid the service degradation during the time-domain muting. Simulation results of a HetNet with D2D-eICIC show that the SE of our approach outperforms other interference management approaches.

Abstract [en]

In this work, we study the stability region of the two-user broadcast channel (BC) with bursty data arrivals and security constraints. It is assumed that one of the receivers has a secrecy constraint, i.e., its packets need to be kept secret from the other receiver, which is defined based on SINR. The receiver with secrecy constraint has full-duplex capability to send a jamming signal for improving its service rate. The stability region of the two-user BC with secrecy constraint is characterized for the general decoding case. Then, assuming two different decoding schemes the respective stability regions are derived. The fullduplex operation of receiver results in self-interference, and the effect of imperfect self-interference cancelation on the stability region is also investigated. The stability region of the BC with a secrecy constraint, where the receivers do not have full duplex capability can be obtained as a special case of the results derived in this paper. In addition, the paper considers the problem of maximizing the saturated throughput of the queue for which there is no secrecy constraint under minimum service guarantees for the other queue. The results provide new insights on the effect of the secrecy constraint on the stability region of the BC. It is found that the stability region with secrecy constraint is sensitive to the degree of self-interference cancelation.

Abstract [en]

Age of information (AoI) was introduced in the early 2010s as a notion to characterize the freshness of the knowledge a system has about a process observed remotely. AoI was shown to be a fundamentally novel metric of timeliness, significantly different, to existing ones such as delay and latency. The importance of such a tool is paramount, especially in contexts other than transport of information, since communication takes place also to control, or to compute, or to infer, and not just to reproduce messages of a source. This volume comes to present and discuss the first body of works on AoI and discuss future directions that could yield more challenging and interesting research.

Abstract [en]

In an increasingly networked world in which information is becoming increasingly actual, how can a system know with certainty just how fresh the information on a remote system is? Much work has been done on delay or latency in systems, but only recently has the concept of the freshness of information in or about a system become quantifiable. This is termed the Age of Information.

Age of Information provides a whole new set of metrics and tools that can be used to characterize the freshness of information in communications, control and, indeed, information systems. In its early development, this monograph provides the reader with an easy-to-read tutorial-like introduction into this novel approach of dealing with information within systems. A critical summary of the work to date details the concept for the reader. A description of the fundamentals of the performance metrics is then presented before showing how the approach can be used as a tool in improving metrics in other contexts.

The survey and tutorial nature of this monograph will save any researcher or student considerable time in understanding the basics of Age of Information, which is destined to become an important research topic in networked systems.

Abstract [en]

The emerging vision of smart cities necessitates the use of Internet of Things (IoT) network devices to implement sustainable solutions that will improve the operations of urban areas. A massive amount of smart cities services may demand allocation of computational resources, such as processing power or storage, that IoT devices offer. Within this context, we present an IoT network device comprising interfaces with one specific computational resource available. The efficient utilization of available IoT resources would improve the Quality of Service (QoS) of the IoT network that serves the smart city. All resource allocations must be completed within a given scheduling window and every service is parametrized by a pricing weight function to indicate its tolerance to be served at the beginning of the scheduling window. We propose a mathematical optimization formulation to minimize the total cost of allocating all demands within the scheduling window considering the tolerance level of each service at the same time. Moreover, we prove that the problem is computationally hard and we provide numerical results to gain insight into the impact of different pricing weight functions on the allocations’ distribution within the scheduling window.

Abstract [en]

With the densification of nodes in cellular networks, free space optics (FSO) connections are becoming an appealing low cost and high rate alternative to copper and fiber backhaul solutions for wireless communication systems. To en- sure a reliable cellular backhaul, provisions for redundant, disjoint paths between the nodes must be made in the design phase. This chapter aims at finding a cost- effective solution to upgrade the cellular backhaul with pre-deployed optical fibers using FSO links and mirror components. A novel integer linear programming model to approach optimal FSO backhaul design, guaranteeing K-disjoint paths connecting each node pair is presented. Next, a column generation method to a path-oriented mathematical formulation is developed. Applying the method in a sequential man- ner enables high computational scalability. Realistic scenarios are used to demon- strate the proposed approaches which efficiently provide optimal or near-optimal solutions, and thereby allow for accurately dealing with the trade-off between cost and reliability.

Abstract [en]

We consider a system of multiple sources generating status update packets, which need to be sent by a single transmitter to a destination over a network. In the model we study, the packet generation time may vary at each source, and the packets go through the network with a random delay. Each update carries a time stamp of its generation, allowing the destination to calculate for each source the so called Age of Information, which measures the timeliness of each status update arriving. Considering that queuing delay can unnecessarily increase the age of a critical status update, we propose here a queue management technique, in which we maintain a queue with only the latest status packet of each source, overwriting any previously queued update from that source. This simple technique drastically limits the need for buffering and can be applied in systems where the history of source status is not relevant. We show that this scheme results in significantly less transmissions compared to the standard M/M/1 queue model. Furthermore, the proposed technique reduces the per source age of information, especially in settings not using queue management with high status update generation rates.

Abstract [en]

In this work, we investigate the operation of energy efficient relay nodes assisting the transmission of packets from a number of users to a destination node. We study the impact of switching randomly a fraction of the relays on and off to the aggregate throughput, the average queue size and delay per packet of systems with relays transmitting in either Full-or Half-Duplex mode and under different channel transmissions characteristics. Furthermore, we prove analytically and illustrate via simulation means how these network metrics are affected.

Abstract [en]

Reliable data packet transfer is an essential facet of quality of service in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). WSNs require pertinent and reliable data collection schemes to provide dependable information. We analyze the factors that affect reliability, and design efficient combinations of the possible options. While many researchers have tackled this issue by focusing on particular layers of the embedded communication stack (e.g., Medium Access Control (MAC) or routing layer), we propose a layer-independent transmission rate adaptive scheme, where no additional control messages are required. We focus on packet loss avoidance along prone-to-failure paths to the sink with the main objective being the efficient queue management of a sensor node. Based on certain factors (e.g., application or queue requirements) nodes will consequently take adjustment decisions. Our thorough simulation experiments demonstrate that DRAS reduces the packet drops and improves the data collection procedure in an energy efficient manner.

Abstract [en]

In the Internet of Things (IoT), devices and gateways may be equipped with multiple, heterogeneous network interfaces which should be utilized by a large number of services. In this work, we model the problem of assigning services' resource demands to a device's heterogeneous interfaces and give a Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP) formulation for it. For meaningful instance sizes the MILP model gives optimal solutions to the presented computationally-hard problem. We provide insightful results discussing the properties of the results on the properties of the derived solutions with respect to the splitting of services to different interfaces.
