    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, we demonstrate an analytical model for computing the end-to-end packet delay of a converged optical/wireless 60 GHz Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) network operating under the medium-transparent MAC (MT-MAC) protocol. ...
  • Self-coordination of parameter conflicts in D-SON architectures: a Markov decision process framework 

    Moysen Cortes, Jessica; Giupponi, Lorenza (2015-12-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We consider a distributed SON (D-SON) architecture where the interaction of different self-organizing network (SON) functions negatively affect the performances of the system. This is referred to in 3rd Generation Partnership ...

    Article
    Accés obert
    In spite of the significant advancements in wireless connectivity, the static form of the network infrastructure cannot guarantee an uninterrupted operation of the ever-growing wireless consumer electronics in emergency ...
  • Evaluating cost allocation imposed by cooperative switching off in multi-operator shared HetNets 

    Oikonomakou, Maria; Antonopoulos, Angelos; Alonso Zárate, Luis Gonzaga; Verikoukis, Christos (2017-12)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The anticipated explosion in the total data traffic load will impose to mobile network operators (MNOs) the necessity to densify their networks to provide coverage. At the same time, since MNOs plan their networks according ...
  • Contention tree-based access for wireless machine-to-machine networks with energy harvesting 

    Vázquez Gallego, Francisco; Kalalas, Charalampos; Alonso Zárate, Luis Gonzaga; Alonso Zárate, Jesús (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-06)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, we consider a wireless machine-to-machine network composed of end-devices with energy harvesters that periodically transmit data to a gateway. While energy harvesting allows for perpetual operation, the ...
