Large communication networks, e.g. Internet of Things (IoT), are known to be vulnerable to the co-channel interference from simultaneous transmissions. In the recent time, this problem has been extensively studied in various contexts. Due to a potentially very long duty cycle, orthogonal multiple access techniques are not well suited for such schemes. Instead, random medium access (RMA) seems promising, since it guarantees a lower bound for the network throughput even in presence of an infinite number of simultaneous transmissions while reducing the average length of the duty cycle. Such an RMA scheme is based on transmission of short data packets with unknown scheduling. Of course, a reliable symbol detection for this type of communication is very challenging not only due to a large amount of interference from the adjacent nodes, but also because of the uncertainty related to the presence or absence of overlapping packets. Interestingly, with increasing number of network nodes also the amount of energy, which can be harvested from the received signal, increases. This is especially beneficial for powering of a relay device, which may utilize the energy for further information processing and retransmission. In this paper, we address the design of a simultaneous information and power transfer scheme based on unscheduled short packet transmissions for ultrareliable communication. [less ▲]

Satellite communication networks are expected to be indispensable as part of an integrated complement for the upcoming 5G networks since they can provide the most comprehensive coverage and reliable connection for areas where are economically unviable and/or difficult to deploy terrestrial infrastructures. Meanwhile, the power-domain non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), which can serve multiple users simultaneously within the same time/frequency block, has been viewed as another promising strategy used in the 5G network to provide high spectral efficiency and resource utilization. In this paper, we introduce a general overview of the application of the NOMA to various satellite architectures for the benefits of meeting the availability, coverage, and efficiency requirements targeted by the 5G. The fundamental and ubiquitous features of satellite link budget are first reviewed. Then, the advantage and benefit of introducing the NOMA scheme in various satellite architectures, such as conventional downlink/uplink satellite networks, cognitive satellite terrestrial networks, and cooperative satellite networks with satellite/terrestrial relays, are provided, along with the motivation and research methodology for each scenario. Finally, this paper reviews the potential directions for future research. [less ▲]

In this paper, we investigate the outage performance of a multiuser threshold-based decode-and-forward integrated satellite-terrestrial relay network (ISTRN) with opportunistic user scheduling, where the satellite link and terrestrial links undergo Shadowed-Rician (SR) fading and correlated Rayleigh fading, respectively. First, we propose a new probability density function (PDF) to statistically characterize the square sum of independent and identically distributed SR random variables, which is more accurate and concise than existing expressions. Next, based on the new PDF, we derive an analytical expression of outage probability (OP) of the considered network. Furthermore, the asymptotic OP expression is developed at high signal-to-noise ratio to reveal the achievable diversity order of the considered ISTRN. Finally, computer simulation is conducted to validate the analytical results, and show the impact of various parameters on the outage performance. [less ▲]

In this paper we propose a new measurement procedure for the amplitude response of a wideband transponder in an in-orbit testing (IOT) context. The proposed procedure resorts to a direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) technique in order to limit the interference caused by the measurement signals to the traffic. Further, an adaptive approach exploiting the knowledge of the inband traffic power has been introduced. Such knowledge, acquired either a priori or by sensing the channel, allows to easily design measurement signals satisfying multiple performance requirements (i.e., accuracy, resolution, interference, duration, and complexity). The proposed procedure can be used as a design tool to optimize the dimensioning of the IOT system parameters, and to flexibly trade off a performance indicator against another. [less ▲]

This paper presents designing precoding technique at the gateway of a multibeam mobile satellite systems, enabling full frequency reuse pattern among the beams. Such a system brings in two critical challenges to overcome. The inter-beam interference makes applying interference mitigation techniques necessary. Further, when the user terminals are mobile the Channel State Information (CSI) becomes time-varying which is another challenge to overcome. Therefore, the gateway has only access to an outdated CSI, which can eventually limit the precoding gains. In this way, employing a proper CSI estimation mechanism at the gateway can improve the performance of the precoding scheme. In this context, the objectives of this paper are two folds. First, we present different CSI feedback mechanisms which aim at preserving a lower CSI variations at the gateway. Then, we develop the corresponding precoding schemes which are adapted with the proposed CSI feedback mechanisms. To keep the complexity of the proposed precoding schemes affordable, we consider a maritime communication scenario so that the signals received by mobile user terminals suffer from a lower pathloss compared to the Land Mobile communication. Finally, we provide several simulations results in order to evaluate the performance of the proposed precoding techniques. [less ▲]

We propose a novel formulation for joint maximization of total weighted sum-spectral efficiency and weighted sum-harvested energy to study Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT) from a pricing perspective. Specifically, we consider that a transmit source communicates with multiple destinations using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) system within a dual-hop relay-assisted network, where the destination nodes are capable of jointly decoding information and harvesting energy from the same radio-frequency (RF) signal using either the time-switching (TS) or power-splitting (PS) based SWIPT receiver architectures. Computation of the optimal solution for the aforementioned problem is an extremely challenging task as joint optimization of several network resources introduce intractability at high numeric values of relays, destination nodes and OFDM sub-carriers. Therefore, we present a suitable algorithm with sub-optimal results and good performance to compute the performance of joint data processing and harvesting energy under fixed pricing methods by adjusting the respective weight factors, motivated by practical statistics. Furthermore, by exploiting the binary options of the weights, we show that the proposed formulation can be regulated purely as a sum-spectral efficiency maximization or solely as a sum-harvested energy maximization problem. Numerical results illustrate the benefits of the proposed design under several operating conditions and parameter values. [less ▲]

In this paper, we consider an uplink satellite multiterrestrial relay network, which employs a single-antenna user to communicate with a satellite via multiple decode-and-forward (DF) terrestrial relays. Due to the spectrum sharing policy, terrestrial relays are interfered by cochannel interference (CCI). For inevitable radio frequency (RF) front-end imperfections, the interconnected nodes of the whole network are always impaired by inherent hardware impairments (HIs). Specifically, in order to improve the overall system performance, a partial relay selection scheme is used to enhance the system performance by improving the spatial diversity. On this foundation, we have derived the closed-form expressions for the outage probability (OP) and throughput of the considered system, where both the satellite and terrestrial channels are under independent nonidentical distributions. To get better insights at high signal-to-noise-ratios (SNRs), the asymptotic behaviors for the system performance are also derived. From the asymptotic results, the impacts of CCI and the HIs on the system performance are quantitatively analyzed. Especially, the OP and throughput will have bounds when the system is under HIs. Monte Carlo (MC) simulation results corroborate the theoretical analysis and illustrate the joint effects of CCI and HIs on the considered system. [less ▲]

We investigate the resource allocation and relay selection in a two-hop relay-assisted multi-user Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) network, where the end-nodes support Simultaneous Wireless Information and Power Transfer (SWIPT) employing a Power Splitting (PS) technique. Our goal is to optimize the end-nodes’ power splitting ratios as well as the relay, carrier and power assignment so that the sum-rate of the system is maximized subject to harvested energy and transmitted power constraints. Such joint optimization with mixed integer non-linear programming structure is combinatorial in nature. Due to the complexity of this problem, we propose to solve its dual problem which guarantees asymptotic optimality and less execution time compared to a highly-complex exhaustive search approach. Furthermore, we also present a heuristic method to solve this problem with lower computational complexity. Simulation results reveal that the proposed algorithms provide significant performance gains compared to a semi-random resource allocation and relay selection approach and close to the optimal solution when the number of OFDMA sub-carriers is sufficiently large.

In this chapter, we investigate the performance of a time-switching (TS) based energy harvesting model for cache-assisted simultaneous wireless transmission of information and energy (Wi-TIE). In the considered system, a relay which is equipped with both caching and energy harvesting capabilities helps a source to convey information to a destination. Based on the time-splitting mechanism, we analyze the effect of caching on the system performance in terms of stored energy at the relay and the relay-destination link throughput. In particular, two optimization problems are formulated to maximize the energy stored at the relay and the relay-destination throughput. By using KKT method, closed-form solution are obtained for both the problems. Finally, the performance of the proposed design under various operating conditions and parameter values is illustrated using numerical results. [less ▲]

To keep massive MIMO systems cost-efficient, power amplifiers with rather small output dynamic ranges are employed. They may distort the transmit signal and degrade the performance. This paper proposes a distortion aware precoding scheme for realistic scenarios in which RF chains have nonlinear characteristics. The proposed scheme utilizes the method of regularized least-squares (RLS) to jointly compensate the channel impacts and the distortion imposed by the RF chains. To construct the designed transmit waveform with low computational complexity, an iterative algorithm based on approximate message passing is developed. This algorithm is shown to track the achievable average signal distortion of the proposed scheme tightly, even for practical system dimensions. The results demonstrate considerable enhancement compared to the state of the art.

In this paper, we consider three transmitter designs for symbol-level-precoding (SLP), a technique that mitigates multiuser interference (MUI) in multiuser systems by designing the transmitted signals using the channel state information and the information-bearing symbols. The considered systems tackle the high hardware complexity and power consumption of existing SLP techniques by reducing or completely eliminating fully digital radio frequency (RF) chains. The first proposed architecture referred to as, Antenna Selection SLP, minimizes the MUI by activating a subset of the available antennas and thus, reducing the number of required RF chains to the number of active antennas. In the other two architectures, which we refer to as RF domain SLP, the processing happens entirely in the RF domain, thus eliminating the need for multiple fully digital RF chains altogether. Instead, the analog phase shifters directly modulate the signals on the transmit antennas. The precoding design for all the considered cases is formulated as a constrained least squares problem and efficient algorithmic solutions are developed via the Coordinate Descent method. Simulations provide insights into the power efficiency of the proposed schemes and the improvements over the fully digital counterparts. [less ▲]

This paper designs dynamic on-board signal processing schemes in a multiple gateway multibeam satellite system where full frequency reuse pattern is considered among the beams and feeds. In particular, we deploy on-board Joint Precoding, Feed selection and Signal switching mechanism (JPFS) so that the following advantages are realized, I) No need of Channel State Information (CSI) exchange among the gateways and satellite, since the performance of precoding is highly sensitive to the quality of CSI, II) In case one gateway fails, rerouting signals through other gateways can be applied without any extra signal processing, III) Properly selecting on-board feed/s to serve each user which generates maximum gain toward corresponding user, IV) Flexibly switching the signals received from the gateways to requested users where each user can dynamically request traffic from any gateway, and V) Multiple user with multiple traffic streams can be dynamically served at each beam. However, deploying such JPFS architecture imposes high complexity to the satellite payload. To tackle this issue, this study aims at deploying JPFS that can provide affordable complexity at the payload. In addition, while increasing the data demand imposes extensive bandwidth resources requirement in the feeder link, the proposed JPFS design works efficiently with available feeder link resources even if the data demand increases. The proposed design is evaluated with a close-to-real beam pattern and the latest broadband communication standard for satellite communications. [less ▲]

Beamforming with large-scale antenna arrays (LSAA) is one of the predominant operations in designing wireless communication systems. However, the implementation of a fully digital system significantly increases the number of required radio-frequency (RF) chains, which may be prohibitive. Thus, analog beamforming based on a phase-shifting network driven by a variable gain amplifier (VGA) is a potential alternative technology. In this paper, we cast the beamforming vector design problem as a beampattern matching problem, with an unknown power gain. This is formulated as a unit-modulus least-squares (ULS) problem where the optimal gain of the VGA is also designed in addition to the beamforming vector. We also consider a scenario where the receivers have the additional processing capability to adjust the phases of the incoming signals to mitigate specular multipath components. We propose efficient majorization-minimization (MM) based algorithms with convergence guarantees to a stationary point for solving both variants of the proposed ULS problem. Numerical results verify the effectiveness of the proposed solution in comparison with the existing state-of-the-art techniques. [less ▲]
