This paper investigates the performance limits of cognitive uplink Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) and terrestrial Fixed Service (FS) operating in 27.5-29.5 GHz for Ka-band. In light of standard International Telecommunications Union (ITU) recommendations and a rain fading channel model, we analyze the interference level at the FS receiver by considering the channel statistical properties, propagation losses and antenna patterns. By employing the interference constraint criterion at the FS, an analytical expression for the capacity of the cognitive uplink FSS is derived, which is useful in understanding the performance limits and the potential application of the considered coexistence scenario. Simulation results are carried out to verify the theoretical derivations, and highlight the impact of key parameters on the performance limits. [less ▲]

We propose a new beamforming scheme for the multi-user multiple-input-single-output (MISO) downlink channel. While conventional beamforming aims at the minimization of the transmit power subject to suppressing interference to guarantee quality of service (QoS) constraints, here we exploit, rather than suppress, the constructive part of interference. By exploiting the power of constructively interfering symbols, the proposed scheme achieves the required QoS at lower transmit power. In addition, we derive an equivalent virtual multicast formulation for the proposed optimization to facilitate the design of a more efficient solver. Our simulation and analysis show significant power savings for small scale MISO downlink channels with the proposed optimization compared to conventional beamforming optimization. [less ▲]

Abstract A power splitting approach for simultaneous wireless information and energy transfer is provided in this paper. We consider coordinated multipiont downlink transmission with M base stations (BSs) and J mobile stations (MSs). The main goal of this paper is to maximize per-MS data rate and receiving energy by dynamically optimizing transmitting beamformer. To improve fairness, this problem can be formulated to maximize the minimum rate of all J MSs with per-BS transmitting power constraints and per-MS receiving energy constraints, which is NP-hard problem. Minimum mean square error receiver, affine approximation and alternative convex optimization (ACO) methods are introduced to decompose the original NP-hard problem to several convex subproblems which can be solved by second-order cone programming with low rank (which is equal to the number of data streams) solutions, and then a fast heuristic algorithm is provided to solve the original problem. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve fairness, and outperforms sum rate scheme in terms of fairness and outage probability. The fast convergency also demonstrates the proposed algorithm’s good performance. [less ▲]

Channel estimation attacks can degrade the performance of the legitimate system and facilitate eavesdropping. It is known that pilot contamination can alter the legitimate transmit precoder design and strengthen the quality of the received signal at the eavesdropper, without being detected. In this paper, we devise a technique which employs random pilots chosen from a known set of phase-shift keying (PSK) symbols to detect pilot contamination. The scheme only requires two training periods without any prior channel knowledge. Our analysis demonstrates that using the proposed technique in a massive MIMO system, the detection probability of pilot contamination attacks can be made arbitrarily close to 1. Simulation results reveal that the proposed technique can significantly increase the detection probability and is robust to noise power as well as the eavesdropper’s power. [less ▲]

This paper studies the impact of jamming on the design of three-node two-hop cooperative amplify-and-forward (AF) communications with both half-duplex and full-duplex relaying. For the half-duplex relaying, the jammer is smart such that it can optimally allocate jamming power between listening and forwarding phases. Given separate source and relay power constraints, we derive the optimal jamming power allocation; with a total source and relay power constraint, we model the interaction between the legitimate system and the jammer as a noncooperative game and prove the existence and uniqueness of the Nash Equilibrium (NE). It is found that due to the fact that the end performance is limited by the weaker phase, the legitimate systems tries to balance the performance of two phases while the jammer attacks the system by making the two hops imbalanced. While for the full-duplex relaying, we show that if the self-interference can be properly controlled, it can bring substantial performance gain. Simulation results verify our analysis. [less ▲]

Harvest-use (HU) is an energy harvesting (EH) architecture where the received energy cannot be stored and immediately must be consumed in order to maintain operability. Due to its current limited application interest, this architecture has not yet been examined in the literature and its deployment to communication system is an open problem. This paper deals with the application of HU architecture to communication systems and investigates cooperative protocols where the relay node has HU capabilities. We show that HU relaying introduces a trade-off between EH time and relaying (data communication) time; this trade-off is discussed for two fundamental relaying policies a) Amplify-and-forward (AF) with half-duplex (HD) relaying and b) AF with full-duplex (FD) relaying. The optimal time split is formulated as an optimization problem and an approximation is given in a closed form. Numerical results show that FD outperforms HD and is introduced as an efficient relaying policy for HU cooperative systems. [less ▲]

In multi-relay cooperative systems, the signal at the destination is affected by impairments such as multiple channel gains, multiple timing offsets (MTOs), and multiple carrier frequency offsets (MCFOs). In this paper we account for all these impairments and propose a new transceiver structure at the relays and a novel receiver design at the destination in distributed space-time block code (DSTBC) based amplify-and-forward (AF) cooperative networks. The Cramér-Rao lower bounds and a least squares (LS) estimator for the multi-parameter estimation problem are derived. In order to significantly reduce the receiver complexity at the destination, a differential evolution (DE) based estimation algorithm is applied and the initialization and constraints for the convergence of the proposed DE algorithm are investigated. In order to detect the signal from multiple relays in the presence of unknown channels, MTOs, and MCFOs, novel optimal and sub-optimal minimum mean-square error receiver designs at the destination node are proposed. Simulation results show that the proposed estimation and compensation methods achieve full diversity gain in the presence of channel and synchronization impairments in multi-relay AF cooperative networks.

This paper studies secrecy rate optimization in a wireless network with a single-antenna source, a multi-antenna destination and a multi-antenna eavesdropper. This is an unfavorable scenario for secrecy performance as the system is interference-limited. In the literature, assuming that the receiver operates in half duplex (HD) mode, the aforementioned problem has been addressed via use of cooperating nodes who act as jammers to confound the eavesdropper. This paper investigates an alternative solution, which assumes the availability of a full duplex (FD) receiver. In particular, while receiving data, the receiver transmits jamming noise to degrade the eavesdropper channel. The proposed self-protection scheme eliminates the need for external helpers and provides system robustness. For the case in which global channel state information is available, we aim to design the optimal jamming covariance matrix that maximizes the secrecy rate and mitigates loop interference associated with the FD operation. We consider both fixed and optimal linear receiver design at the destination, and show that the optimal jamming covariance matrix is rank-1, and can be found via an efficient 1-D search. For the case in which only statistical information on the eavesdropper channel is available, the optimal power allocation is studied in terms of ergodic and outage secrecy rates. Simulation results verify the analysis and demonstrate substantial performance gain over conventional HD operation at the destination. [less ▲]

This paper considers the cooperation between a cognitive system and a primary system where multiple cognitive base stations (CBSs) relay the primary user's (PU) signals in exchange for more opportunity to transmit their own signals. The CBSs use amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying and coordinated beamforming to relay the primary signals and transmit their own signals. The objective is to minimize the overall transmit power of the CBSs given the rate requirements of the PU and the cognitive users (CUs). We show that the relaying matrices have unity rank and perform two functions: Matched filter receive beamforming and transmit beamforming. We then develop two efficient algorithms to find the optimal solution. The first one has a linear convergence rate and is suitable for distributed implementation, while the second one enjoys superlinear convergence but requires centralized processing. Further, we derive the beamforming vectors for the linear conventional zero-forcing (CZF) and prior zero-forcing (PZF) schemes, which provide much simpler solutions. Simulation results demonstrate the improvement in terms of outage performance due to the cooperation between the primary and cognitive systems. [less ▲]

This paper addresses coordinated downlink beamforming optimization in multicell time division duplex (TDD) systems where a small number of parameters are exchanged between cells but with no data sharing. With the goal to reach the point on the Pareto boundary with max-min rate fairness, we first develop a two-step centralized optimization algorithm to design the joint beamforming vectors. This algorithm can achieve a further sum-rate improvement over the max-min optimal performance, and is shown to guarantee max-min Pareto optimality for scenarios with two base stations (BSs) each serving a single user. To realize a distributed solution with limited intercell communication, we then propose an iterative algorithm by exploiting an approximate uplink-downlink duality, in which only a small number of positive scalars are shared between cells in each iteration. Simulation results show that the proposed distributed solution achieves a fairness rate performance close to the centralized algorithm while it has a better sum-rate performance, and demonstrates a better tradeoff between sum-rate and fairness than the Nash Bargaining solution especially at high signal-to-noise ratio.

Security threats introduced due to the vulnerability of the transmission medium may hinder the proliferation of Ka band multibeam satellite systems for civil and military data applications. This paper sets the analytical framework and then studies physical layer security techniques for fixed legitimate receivers dispersed throughout multiple beams, each possibly surrounded by multiple (passive) eavesdroppers. The design objective is to minimize via transmit beamforming the costly total transmit power on board the satellite, while satisfying individual intended users' secrecy rate constraints. Assuming state-of-the-art satellite channel models, when perfect channel state information (CSI) about the eavesdroppers is available at the satellite, a partial zero-forcing approach is proposed for obtaining a low-complexity sub-optimal solution. For the optimal solution, an iterative algorithm combining semi-definite programming relaxation and the gradient-based method is devised by studying the convexity of the problem. Furthermore, the use of artificial noise as an additional degree-of-freedom for protection against eavesdroppers is explored. When only partial CSI about the eavesdroppers is available, we study the problem of minimizing the eavesdroppers' received signal to interference-plus-noise ratios. Simulation results demonstrate substantial performance improvements over existing approaches. [less ▲]

Existing satellite communication standards such as DVB-S2 operate under highly-efficient adaptive coding and modulation schemes thus making significant progress in improving the spectral efficiencies of digital satellite broadcast systems. However, the constantly increasing demand for broadband and interactive satellite links emanates the need to apply novel interference mitigation techniques, striving towards Terabit throughput. In this direction, the objective of the present contribution is to investigate joint multiuser processing techniques for multibeam satellite systems. In the forward link, the performance of linear precoding is investigated with optimal non-linear precoding (i.e. Dirty Paper Coding) acting as the upper performance limit. To this end, the resulting power and precoder design problems are approached through optimization methods. Similarly, in the return link the concept of linear filtering (i.e. Linear Minimum Mean Square Error) is studied with the optimal successive interference cancellation acting as the performance limit. The derived capacity curves for both scenarios are compared to conventional satellite systems where beams are processed independently and interbeam interference is mitigated through a four color frequency reuse scheme, in order to quantify the potential gain of the proposed techniques.

Multibeam systems with hundreds of beams have been recently deployed in order to provide higher capacities by employing fractional frequency reuse. Furthermore, employing full frequency reuse and precoding over multiple beams has shown great throughput potential in literature. However, feeding all this data from a single gateway is not feasible based on the current frequency allocations. In this context, we investigate a range of scenarios involving beam clusters where each cluster is managed by a single gateway. More specifically, the following cases are considered for handling intercluster interference: a) conventional frequency colouring, b) joint processing within cluster, c) partial CSI sharing among clusters, d) partial CSI and data sharing among clusters. CSI sharing does not provide considerable performance gains with respect to b) but combined with data sharing offers roughly a 40% improvement over a) and a 15% over b). [less ▲]

The performance of multiuser systems is both difficult to measure fairly and to optimize. Most resource allocation problems are nonconvex and NP-hard, even under simplifying assumptions such as perfect channel knowledge, homogeneous channel properties among users, and simple power constraints. We establish a general optimization framework that systematically solves these problems to global optimality. The proposed branch-reduce-and-bound (BRB) algorithm handles general multicell downlink systems with single-antenna users, multiantenna transmitters, arbitrary quadratic power constraints, and robust- ness to channel uncertainty. A robust fairness-profile optimization (RFO) problem is solved at each iteration, which is a quasiconvex problem and a novel generalization of max-min fairness. The BRB algorithm is computationally costly, but it shows better convergence than the previously proposed outer polyblock approximation algorithm. Our framework is suitable for computing benchmarks in general multicell systems with or without channel uncertainty. We illustrate this by deriving and evaluating a zero-forcing solution to the general problem. [less ▲]

We numerically evaluate the rate performance of the full duplex multi-hop (FD-MH) scheme and the half duplex decode-and-forward (HD-DF) scheme, where the former requires transmit power allocation under the dynamic range constraint. Results show that there is a tradeoff between these two relaying modes. [less ▲]

In this paper, we analyze the achievable secrecy rates in the two-hop wiretap channel with four nodes, where the transmitter and the receiver have multiple antennas while the relay and the eavesdropper have only a single antenna each. The relay is operating in amplify-and-forward mode and all the channels between the nodes are known perfectly by the transmitter. We discuss different transmission and protection schemes like artificial noise (AN). Furthermore, we introduce interference neutralization (IN) as a new protection scheme. We compare the different schemes regarding the high-SNR slope and the high-SNR power offset and illustrate the performance by simulation results. It is shown analytically as well as by numerical simulations that the high SNR performance of the proposed IN scheme is better than the one of AN. [less ▲]

This paper studies different uses of two cooperating relays to improve the secrecy rate of a wiretap channel. These two relays are assumed to perform only simple functions: either amplify-and-forward (AF) or jamming. Complex functions such as decode-and-forward (DF) are not considered. We study three modes of cooperation: i) cooperative jamming (CJ), ii) AF-aided beamforming and iii) mixed AF-aided beamforming and CJ, all with individual relay power constraints. While i) is known in the literature, our efforts are spent on ii) and iii). In particular, for iii), we assume that the jamming signals in two communication stages are correlated, giving rise to improved performances. We also propose a heuristic approach for selecting the appropriate cooperating mode. Simulation results illustrate the performance gain of each scheme under different channel conditions and the effectiveness of the proposed mode selection method. [less ▲]
