Efficient time-domain phase noise mitigation in cm-wave wireless communications

The topic of this paper is low-complexity yet high-precision phase-noise mitigation in a realistic cm-wave radio link. The proposed algorithm for phase-noise induced intercarrier interference mitigation works in time domain. We propose a filtering solution that is computationally very simple to implement on silicon. Noise from initial phase-noise estimate is removed with cumulative sum filtering instead of a very high order complex-tap filter. The performance of the proposed algorithm is evaluated in realistic ITU-R Urban Microcell Non-Line-of-Sight channel as well as in white Gaussian noise channel, and with state-of-the-art phase-locked-loop oscillator generated phase noise. The obtained results show that highly-efficient phase-noise mitigation can be obtained using the proposed approach. For the example 5G case, the algorithm suppresses the phase noise so that the bit-error-rate performance is near the case without phase noise.

A New PRACH Transmission Scheme in Unlicensed Spectrum

  • Luo Z.
  • Meng Y.
  • Tao T.

For the unlicensed spectrum, the occupied bandwidth requirement is demanded by some regulations. The legacy scheme of Physical Random Access Channel (PRACH) for Long Term Evolution (LTE) cannot satisfy it. In this paper, we propose a novel PRACH transmission scheme to satisfy the requirement of unlicensed spectrum based on preamble ...

Mutual service processes in Euclidean spaces: existence and ergodicity

  • Baccelli F.
  • Mathieu F.
  • Norros I.

Consider a set of objects, abstracted to points of a spatially stationary point process in R-d, that deliver to each other a service at a rate depending on their distance. Assume that the points arrive as a Poisson process and leave when their service requirements have been fulfilled. We show ...

We focus on the problem of contributor-task matching in mobile crowd-sourcing. The idea is to identify existing social media users who possess domain expertise (e.g., photography) and incentivize them to perform some tasks (e.g., take quality pictures). To this end, we propose a framework that extracts the potential contributors' expertise ...
