Localization has attracted a lot of research effort in the last decade due to the explosion of location based service (LBS). In particular, fingerprinting localization has received much attention due to its simplicity and compatibility with existing hardware. In this work, we take a closer look at the underlying aspects of fingerprinting localization. First, we review the various methods to create a radiomap. In particular, we look the traditional fingerprinting method which is based purely on measurements, the parametric pathloss regression model and the non-parametric Gaussian Process (GP) regression model. Then, based on these three methods and measurements from a real world deployment, the various aspects such as the density of access points (APs) and impact of an outdated signature map which affect the performance of fingerprinting localization are examined. At the end of the paper, the audiences should have a better understanding of what to expect from fingerprinting localization in a real world deployment.

  • Segall I.

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a new networking paradigm in which network functionality is implemented on top of virtual infrastructure deployed over COTS servers. One of the main motivations for the shift of telco operators into this paradigm is cost reduction, thus the efficient use of resources is an important ...

Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is a novel paradigm allowing flexible and scalable implementation of network services on cloud infrastructure. An important enabler for the NFV paradigm is software switching, which needs to satisfy rigid network requirements such as high throughput and low latency. Despite recent research activities in the field ...

Coexistence-aware dynamic channel allocation for 3.5 GHz shared spectrum systems

The paradigm of shared spectrum allows secondary devices to opportunistically access spectrum bands underutilized by primary owners. As the first step, the FCC targeted sharing the 3.5 GHz (3550–3700 MHz) federal spectrum with commercial systems. The proposed rules require a Spectrum Access System to implement a three-tiered spectrum management framework, ...
