The commercial low earth orbiting (LEO) satellite constellations have shown unprecedented growth. Accordingly, the risk of generating harmful interference to the geostationary orbit (GSO) satellite services increases with the number of satel- lites in such mega-constellations. As the GSO arc encompasses the primary and existing satellite assets providing essential fixed and broadcasting satellite services, the interference avoidance for this area is of the utmost importance. In particular, non- geostationary orbit (NGSO) operators should comply with the regulations set up both by their national regulators and by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) to minimize the impact of emissions on existing GSO and non-GSO systems. In this paper, we first provide an overview of the most recent radio regulations that dictate the NGSO-GSO spectral co-existence. Next, we analyze the NGSO-GSO radio frequency interference for the downlink scenario, following the so-called time-simulation methodology introduced by ITU. The probability distribution of aggregated power flux-density for NGSO co-channel interference is evaluated and assessed, adopting different degrees of exclusion angle strategy for interference avoidance. We conclude the paper by discussing the resulting implications for the continuity of operation and service provision and we provide remarks for future work [less ▲]

The scarce spectrum and power resources, the inter-beam interference, together with the high traffic demand, pose new major challenges for the next generation of Very High Throughput Satellite (VHTS) systems. Accordingly, future satellites are expected to employ advanced resource/interference management techniques to achieve high system spectrum efficiency and low power consumption while ensuring user demand satisfaction. This paper proposes a novel demand and interference aware adaptive resource management for geostationary (GEO) VHTS systems. For this, we formulate a multi-objective optimization problem to minimize the total transmit power consumption and system bandwidth usage while matching the offered capacity with the demand per beam. In this context, we consider resource management for a system with full-precoding, i.e. all beams are precoded; without precoding, i.e. no precoding is applied to any beam; and with partial precoding, i.e. only some beams are precoded. The nature of the problem is non-convex and we solve it by jointly using the Dinkelbach and Successive Convex Approximation (SCA) methods. The simulation results show that the proposed method outperforms the benchmark schemes. Specifically, we show that the proposed method requires low resource consumption, low computational time, and simultaneously achieves a high demand satisfaction. [less ▲]

Through precoding, the spectral efficiency of the system can be improved; thus, more users can benefit from 5G and beyond broadband services. However, complete precoding (using all precoding coefficients) may not be possible in practice due to the high signal processing complexity involved in calculating a large number of precoding coefficients and combining them with symbols for transmission. In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient sparse precoding design, where only a few precoding coefficients are used with lower power consumption depending on the demand. In this context, we formulate an optimization problem that minimizes the number of in-use precoding coefficients and the system power consumption while matching the per beam demand. This problem is nonconvex. Hence, we apply Lagrangian relaxation and successive convex approximation to convexify it. The proposed solution outperforms the benchmark scheme in power consumption and demand satisfaction with the additional advantage of sparse precoding design. [less ▲]

Conventional GEO satellite communication systems rely on a multibeam foot-print with a uniform resource allocation to provide connectivity to users. However, applying uniform resource allocation is inefficient in presence of non-uniform demand distribution. To overcome this limitation, the next generation of broadband GEO satellite systems will enable flexibility in terms of power and bandwidth assignment, enabling on-demand resource allocation. In this paper, we propose a novel satellite resource assignment design whose goal is to satisfy the beam traffic demand by making use of the minimum transmit power and utilized bandwidth. The motivation behind the proposed design is to maximize the satellite spectrum utilization by pushing the spectrum reuse to affordable limits in terms of tolerable interference. The proposed problem formulation results in a non-convex optimization structure, for which we propose an efficient tractable solution. We validate the proposed method with extensive numerical results, which demonstrate the efficiency of the proposed approach with respect to benchmark schemes. [less ▲]

The satellite component is recognized as a promising solution to complement and extend the coverage of future Internet of things (IoT) terrestrial networks (TNs). In this context, a study item to integrate satellites into narrowband-IoT (NBIoT) systems has been approved within the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardization body. However, as NBIoT systems were initially conceived for TNs, their basic design principles and operation might require some key modifications when incorporating the satellite component. These changes in NB-IoT systems, therefore, need to be carefully implemented in order to guarantee a seamless integration of both TN and non-terrestrial network (NTN) for a global coverage. This paper addresses this adaptation for the random access (RA) step in NBIoT systems, which is in fact the most challenging aspect in the NTN context, for it deals with multi-user time-frequency synchronization and timing advance for data scheduling. In particular, we propose an RA technique which is robust to typical satellite channel impairments, including long delays, significant Doppler effects, and wide beams, without requiring any modification to the current NB-IoT RA waveform. Performance evaluations demonstrate the proposal’s capability of addressing different NTN configurations recently defined by 3GPP for the 5G new radio system. [less ▲]

Next–generation of satellite communication (SatCom) networks are expected to support extremely high data rates for a seamless integration into future large satellite-terrestrial networks. In view of the coming spectral limitations, the main challenge is to reduce the cost (satellite launch and operation) per bit, which can be achieved by enhancing the spectral efficiencies. In addition, the capability to quickly and flexibly assign radio resources according to the traffic demand distribution has become a must for future multibeam broadband satellite systems. This article presents the radio resource management problems encountered in the design of future broadband SatComs and provides a comprehensive overview of the available techniques to address such challenges. Firstly, we focus on the demand matching formulation of the power and bandwidth assignment. Secondly, we present the scheduling design in practical multibeam satellite systems. Finally, a number of future challenges and the respective open research topics are described. [less ▲]

This paper tackles the problem of optimizing the parameters of a symbol-level precoder for downlink multiantenna multi-user systems in the finite block length regime. Symbol-level precoding (SLP) is a non-linear technique for multiuser wireless networks, which exploits constructive interference among co-channel links. Current SLP designs, however, implicitly assume asymptotically infinite blocks, since they do not take into account that the design rules for finite and especially short blocks might significantly differ. This paper fills this gap by introducing a novel SLP design based on discrete constellation rotations. The rotations are the added degree of freedom that can be optimized for every block to be transmitted, for instance, to save transmit power. Numerical evaluations of the proposed method indicate substantial power savings, which might be over 99% compared to the traditional SLP, at the expense of a single additional pilot symbol per block for constellation de-rotation.

The narrowband internet of things (NB-IoT) standard is a new cellular wireless technology, which has been introduced by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) with the goal to connect massive low-cost, low-complexity and long-life IoT devices with extended coverage. In order to improve power efficiency, 3GPP proposed a new Random Access (RA) waveform for NB-IoT based on a single-tone frequencyhopping scheme. RA handles the first connection between user equipments (UEs) and the base station (BS). Through this, UEs can be identified and synchronized with the BS. In this context, receiver methods for the detection of the new waveform should satisfy the requirements on the successful user detection as well as the timing synchronization accuracy. This is not a trivial task, especially in the presence of radio impairments like carrier frequency offset (CFO) which constitutes one of the main radio impairments besides the noise. In order to tackle this problem, we propose a new receiver method for NB-IoT Physical Random Access Channel (NPRACH). The method is designed to eliminate perfectly the CFO without any additional computational complexity and supports all NPRACH preamble formats. The associated performance has been evaluated under 3GPP conditions. We observe a very high performance compared both to 3GPP requirements and to the existing state-of-the-art methods in terms of detection accuracy and complexity. [less ▲]

Linear precoding boosts the spectral efficiency of the satellite system by mitigating the interference signal. Typically, all users are precoded and share the same bandwidth regardless of the user demand. This bandwidth utilization is not efficient since the user demand permanently varies. Hence, demand-aware bandwidth allocation with linear precoding is promising. In this paper, we exploited the synergy of linear precoding and flexible bandwidth allocation for geostationary (GEO) high throughput satellite systems. We formulate an optimization problem with the goal to satisfy the demand by taking into account that multiple precoded user groups can share the different bandwidth chunks. Hence, optimal beam groups are selected with minimum bandwidth requirement to match the per beam demand. The simulation results show that the proposed method of combining bandwidth allocation and linear precoding has better bandwidth efficiency and demand satisfaction than benchmark schemes. [less ▲]

The high throughput satellites with flexible payloads are expected to provide a high data rate to satisfy the increasing traffic demand. Furthermore, the reconfiguration capability of flexible payloads opens the door to more advanced system optimization techniques and a better utilization of satellite resources. Consequently, we can obtain high demand satisfaction at the user side. For this, dynamically adaptive high-performance and low-complexity optimization algorithms are needed. In this paper, we propose a novel low-complexity resource optimization technique for geostationary (GEO) High Throughput Satellites. The proposed method minimizes the transmit power and the overall satellite bandwidth while satisfying the demand per beam. This optimization problem turns out to be non-convex. Hence, we convexify the problem using Dinkelbach method and Successive Convex Approximation (SCA). The simulation result shows that the proposed scheme provides better flexibility in resource allocation and requires less computational time compared to the state-of-art benchmark schemes. [less ▲]

Smart radio resource allocation combined with the recent advances of digital payloads will allow to control the transmit power and bandwidth of the satellites depending on the demand and the channel conditions of users. The system flexibility is important not only to handle divergent demand requirements but also to efficiently utilize the limited and expensive satellite resources. In this paper, we propose a demand-aware smart radio resource allocation technique, where the transmit power and the bandwidth of the GEO satellite are minimized while satisfying the user demand. The formulated optimization problem is non-convex mixed-integer nonlinear program which is difficult to solve. Hence, we apply a quadratic transform to solve the problem iteratively. The numerical results showed that the proposed scheme outperforms the benchmark schemes in terms of bandwidth utilization while accurately providing capacity-ondemand. [less ▲]

Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks are known to be highly vulnerable to external in-band interference in terms of packet collisions which may substantially degrade the system performance. In order to enhance the performance in such cases, the telegram splitting (TS) method has been proposed recently. This approach exploits the typical burstiness of the interference via forward error correction (FEC) and offers a substantial performance improvement compared to other methods for packet transmissions in LPWA networks. While it has been already demonstrated that the TS method benefits from knowledge on the current interference state at the receiver side, corresponding practical receiver algorithms of high performance are still missing. The modeling of the bursty interference via Markov chains leads to the optimal detector in terms of a-posteriori symbol error probability. However, this solution requires a high computational complexity, assumes an a-priori knowledge on the interference characteristics and lacks flexibility. We propose a further developed scheme with increased flexibility and introduce an approach to reduce its complexity while maintaining a close-to-optimum performance. In particular, the proposed low complexity solution substantially outperforms existing practical methods in terms of packet error rate and therefore is highly beneficial for practical LPWA network scenarios.
