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 Cloud Native Approach to 5G Network Slicing

5G networks will have to support a set of very diverse and often extreme requirements. Network slicing offers an effective way to unlock the full potential of 5G networks and meet those requirements on a shared network infrastructure. This paper presents a cloud native approach to network slicing. The cloud ...

Based on the physical model of a bulk reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA) used as a modulator in radio over fiber (RoF) links, the distributions of carrier density, signal photon density, and amplified spontaneous emission photon density are demonstrated. One of limits in the use of RSOA is the lower ...

How to preserve users' privacy while supporting high-utility analytics for low-latency stream processing? To answer this question: we describe the design, implementation and evaluation of PRIVAPPROX, a data analytics system for privacy-preserving stream processing. PRIVAPPROX provides three properties: (i) Privacy: zero-knowledge privacy (ezk) guarantees for users, a privacy bound tighter ...
