    Mobility management is a critical component for any new wireless standard to be ubiquitous. While 4G-LTE and prior wireless standards utilized vendor specific hardware and software on which mobility management (MM) ...
  • Access-aware backhaul optimization in 5G 

    Rony, Rakibul Islam; López Aguilera, M. Elena; García Villegas, Eduard (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Aggressive demand of future access network services is being translated into the stringent requirement on future backhaul infrastructure. It is not possible to take the backhaul resources for granted anymore; rather, more ...
  • Optimization of 5G fronthaul based on functional splitting at PHY layer 

    Rony, Rakibul Islam; López Aguilera, M. Elena; García Villegas, Eduard (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    5G is coming with a promise to provide ubiquitous coverage with high data rate availability. To do so, densification of access points to enhance the system capacity is anticipated. For managing such densely populated ...

    By considering potential health problems that a fully covering receiver may cause in vessel-like environments, the implementation of a partially covering receiver is needed. To this end, distribution of hitting location ...
  • Spectrum trading in virtualized multi-tenant 5G networks 

    Tsirakis, C.; López Aguilera, M. Elena; Matzoros, P.; Agapiou, George; Varoutas, D. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this research work, we analyze the problem of spectrum trading in virtualized multi-tenant 5G networks using principles from matching theory. More specifically, we deal with the matching problem among the Mobile Network ...
  • Two way molecular communications 

    Kwack, J.W.; Yilmaz, Hüseyin Birkan; Farsad, Nariman; Chae, Chan-Byoung; Goldsmith, Andrea (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2018)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    For nano-scale communications, there must be cooperation and simultaneous communication between nano devices. To this end, we investigate two way (a.k.a. bi-directional) molecular communications between nano devises. By ...
  • Towards an integral model-based simulator for autonomous earth observation satellite networks 

    Ruiz De Azúa Ortega, Juan Adrián; Araguz López, Carles; Calveras Augé, Anna M.; Alarcón Cot, Eduardo José; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Conference report

    In this paper, performance of binary concentration shift keying (BCSK), BCSK with power adjustment (BCSK-PA), and BCSK with consecutive power adjustment (BCSK-CPA) are analyzed in terms of bit error rate (BER), energy, and ...
  • Mean waiting time in the M/H2/s queue: application to mobile communications Systems 

    Barceló Arroyo, Francisco; Paradells Aspas, Josep; Aguilar Igartua, Mónica (Wissenschaft & Technik, 1997)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    In this paper a procedure to approximately calculate the mean waiting time in the M/H2/s queue is presented. The approximation is heuristic although based in the intuitive symmetry between the deterministic and balanced ...
