    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 ...

    Long Term Evolution (LTE) is projected to be the mostly used mobile technology before 2020, thanks to the high data rates, all IP-based and simplified architecture it brings compared to previous mobile network technologies. ...
  • A two-way radio communication across a multi-hop wireless sensor network based on a commercial IEEE 802.15.4 compliant platform 

    Herrera, Laura; Calveras Augé, Anna M.; Catalán Cid, María Luisa (Elsevier, 2012)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Wireless Sensor Networks, and especially IEEE 802.15.4, are originally defined for low cost applications, with low bit rates and power restrictions in mind. However, the ubiquity of the nodes and their easy connectivity ...
  • A novel wake-up communication system using solar panel and visible light communication 

    Carrascal, Carolina; Seyfettin Demirkol, Ilker; Paradells Aspas, Josep (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    Conference report
