  • An iterative heuristic approach for channel and power allocation in
           wireless networks
    • Authors: Giovanna Garcia; Hermes I. D. Monego; Marcelo E. Pellenz; Richard D. Souza; Anelise Munaretto; Mauro S. P. Fonseca
      Pages: 293 - 303
      Abstract: A large number of access points (APs) may be required to provide network coverage in a given environment. However, a non-optimized deployment of these APs can reduce the network performance significantly due to the excessive interference. The optimization of the channel and transmit power is an efficient method to reduce the interference and therefore guarantee a minimally acceptable performance. In this paper, we propose a heuristic algorithm to find a proper channel and transmit power configuration for all APs within a network. The algorithm evaluates the network, using theoretical models, and employs several techniques to optimize the channel and the transmit power to increase the network performance. We also estimate the complexity of the proposed algorithm comparing it with an exhaustive search approach. The results show that the proposed algorithm can arrive at a solution very close to the optimal with a much reduced computational complexity.

  • Video conference in the fog: an economical approach based on enterprise
           desktop grid
    • Authors: Roman Sorokin; Jean-Louis Rougier
      Pages: 305 - 316
      Abstract: There exist two classical and well-understood approaches to video-processing tasks (such as mixing or trans-coding) for videoconferencing. The first one is using a centralized multipoint control unit (MCU), hardware- or software-based, deployed on-premises or in the cloud. In the second approach, the video-processing tasks are directly handled in endpoints (i.e., equipment such as PCs, laptops, and tablets that are involved in the video session). Performance is then restricted by device characteristics, especially in the case of mobile devices. In this paper, we propose a third alternative approach. It has been shown that there exist significant computational resources in user equipment deployed in enterprises, which are under-utilized most of the time. In this paper, we propose a system, which distributes real-time video-processing tasks on these available resources. A dedicated multi-attribute decision-making (MADM) method is designed in order to take into account the variety of attributes impacting Quality of Experience. We enumerate a comprehensive list of events, which may cause distribution or redistribution of video-processing activities and provide simple algorithms to tackle all these cases. We then test the MADM algorithm by means of simulations in order to study the impact of the main critical parameters.

  • Efficient and viable intersection-based routing in VANETs on top of a
           virtualization layer
    • Authors: José Víctor Saiáns-Vázquez; Martín López-Nores; Yolanda Blanco-Fernández; Esteban Fernando Ordóñez-Morales; Jack Fernando Bravo-Torres; José Juan Pazos-Arias
      Pages: 317 - 328
      Abstract: Recent vehicular ad hoc network routing protocols have relied on geographic forwarding and careful selection of road segments as ways to reduce the impact of individual vehicle movements. This paper shows how a virtualization layer and a new protocol running on top of it —called VNIBR, intersection-based routing on virtual nodes—can achieve better performance than state-of-the-art approaches, enabling an efficient and computationally feasible combination of topological and geographical routing. We prove by means of network simulations that this proposal consistently ensures moderate overhead, good packet delivery ratios, and low end-to-end delays, whereas the other protocols exhibit weaknesses due to flooding processes that scale poorly, proactive routing burdens or costly location services. We also present the results of graphics processing unit profiling used to assess the computational feasibility of the different schemes in the context of a real on-board computer, which reveals new advantages about scalability and impact of computational shortages on the routing performance.

  • Outage probability of macrodiversity reception in the presence of Gamma
           long-term fading, Rayleigh short-term fading and Rician co-channel
    • Authors: Dragana Krstić; Suad Suljović; Dejan Milić; Stefan Panić; Mihajlo Stefanović
      Pages: 329 - 339
      Abstract: Macrodiversity (MACD) system with MACD selection combining (SC) receiver and two microdiversity (MICD) selection receivers in the presence of Gamma long-term fading, Rayleigh short-term fading, and co-channel interference affected to Rician short-term fading is studied in this article. The closed-form expressions for probability density function (PDF) and cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the ratio of Rayleigh random variable and Rician random variable are presented, and probability density function and cumulative distribution function of MICD SC receiver output signal to interference ratio are derived. These results are used for evaluation of the outage probability (P out) of considered MACD system, and the influence of Rician factor and Gamma long-term fading severity parameter on the outage probability is analyzed.

           imperfect CSI
    • Authors: Van Phu Tuan; Hyung Yun Kong
      Pages: 341 - 352
      Abstract: This paper studies the secure communication of an energy-harvesting system in which a source communicates with a destination via an amplify-and-forward (AF) untrusted relay. The relay uses the power-splitting policy to harvest energy from wireless signals. The source is equipped with multiple antennas and uses transmit antenna selection (TAS) and maximum ratio transmission (MRT) to enhance the harvested energy at the relay; for performance comparison, random antenna selection (RAS) is examined. The relay and destination are single-antenna nodes. To create a positive secrecy capacity, destination-assisted jamming is deployed. Because the use of multiple antennas can cause the imperfect channel state information (CSI), the channel between the source and the relay is examined in two cases: perfect CSI and imperfect CSI. To evaluate the secrecy performance, analytical expressions for the secrecy outage probability (SOP) and the average secrecy capacity (ASC) for the TAS, MRT, and RAS schemes are derived. Moreover, a high-power approximation for the SOP is presented. The accuracy of the analytical results is verified by Monte Carlo simulations. The results show the benefit of using multiple antennas in improving the secrecy performance. Specifically, MRT performs better than TAS, and both of them outperform RAS. Moreover, the results provide valuable insight into the effects of various system parameters, such as the channel correlation coefficient, energy-harvesting efficiency, secrecy rate threshold, power-splitting ratio, transmit powers, and locations of the relay, on the secrecy performance.

  • A dynamic harmony search-based fuzzy clustering protocol for
           energy-efficient wireless sensor networks
    • Authors: Osama Moh’d Alia
      Pages: 353 - 365
      Abstract: In the development of cluster-based energy-efficient protocols for wireless sensor networks (WSNs), a particularly challenging problem is the dynamic organization of sensors into a wireless communication network and the routing of sensed information from the field sensors to a remote base station (BS) in a manner that prolongs the lifetime of WSNs. This paper presents a new energy-efficient clustering protocol for WSNs, which can minimize total network energy dissipation while maximizing network lifetime. The protocol is divided into two parts. The first deals with constructing an infrastructure for the given WSN. A newly developed algorithm, based on a harmony search (HS), automatically determines the optimal number of clusters and allocates sensors into these clusters. This algorithm also eliminates the need to set the number of clusters a priori. The second part is concerned with the process of sending sensed data from nodes to their cluster head and then to the BS. A decentralized fuzzy clustering algorithm is proposed, where the selection of cluster heads in each round is locally made in each cluster during the network lifetime. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed protocol can achieve an optimal number of clusters, prolong the network lifetime and increase the data delivery at the BS, when compared to other well-known clustering-based routing protocols.

  • Cost estimation of a fixed network deployment over an urban territory
    • Authors: Catherine Gloaguen; Elie Cali
      Pages: 367 - 380
      Abstract: This paper presents a methodology for fast and reliable cost estimation of fixed access network deployment on any urban area. It is based on theoretical results presented in former papers for distances and attenuation results, adding the most important part of cost estimation. In particular it is showed that good estimations can be obtained in a very short time. The territory to be deployed, the network architecture and the scenarios are defined by the user via two user-friendly prototypes. The first one helps defining the limit of the city and computes mathematical parameters representing its street system. The second one computes global information on the network deployment on this territory, namely the probability distributions of distances and attenuation from a node of the network to the final customer, and an evaluation of the deployment cost, once given an architecture and engineering rules. The results were compared on two real French urban territories (in Tours and Rouen) to those given by an optimization tool currently used by Orange.

  • Secure multiuser MISO communication systems with limited feedback link
    • Authors: Berna Özbek; Özgecan Özdoğan Şenol; Güneş Karabulut Kurt
      Pages: 381 - 390
      Abstract: Physical layer security is one of the promising techniques for the security of next-generation wireless systems. In this paper, we analyze the impact of the limited feedback link on the secrecy capacity for a system which includes a base station with multiple antennas, a single legitimate user selected from multiple active ones and multiple eavesdroppers. We propose to design a limited feedback link by reducing the feedback load and quantizing the channel state information (CSI) of legitimate users to establish a secure communication system. The feedback load is decreased with a self discrimination criterion at the legitimate users’ side while keeping the secrecy capacity constant. The best legitimate user is selected based on the quantized CSI through a limited feedback link. We also analyze the impact of CSI of eavesdroppers, which information may or may not be available at transmitter. In practical cases where eavesdroppers are passive and their location is not known by the transmitter, an artificial noise is used to disrupt their reception. When the CSI of eavesdroppers is known, the generalized singular value decomposition is applied. We illustrate the performance results of the proposed limited feedback link through the availability of CSI of eavesdroppers at the transmitter.

  • Joint sensing time and power allocation in cognitive networks with
           amplify-and-forward cooperation
    • Authors: Shunling Ruan; Chengshi Zhao; Song Jiang; Kyungsup Kwak
      Pages: 391 - 399
      Abstract: Cognitive radio is a novel approach to cope with spectrum scarcity, in which either a network or a wireless node changes its transmission or reception parameters to communicate efficiently. However, it is difficult to avoid the interference between licensed and unlicensed users in various scenarios. This paper analyzes the jointly optimized allocation of sensing time and power for a two-user, amplify-and-forward (AF) cognitive network developed by maximizing the average aggregate throughput of its secondary network. In particular, this paper discusses diverse cooperation ratios for different scenarios and a unique cooperation ratio in spite of scenario changes. The observations of experiment results indicate that the sensing duration is within a strict interval. The results show that the optimized sensing time is 14.111 ms and the aggregate throughput equals to 1.1451 bps/Hz which are tractable by sequential optimization. This result indicates that by adopting the fixed cooperation ratios, the achievable throughput of the system is decreased. The system innovatively creates multiple independent fading channels to achieve technological diversity among partners.

  • Satisfactory video dissemination on FANETs based on an enhanced UAV relay
           placement service
    • Abstract: The user experience on watching videos transmitted by a flying ad hoc networks (FANETs) should always be satisfactory even under influence of topology changes in reason of the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) mobility. However, one of the main challenges to route packets in FANETs is how to mitigate the effects of UAV mobility to preclude communication flaws, delays, and void area, which hence increase the packet loss over video transmissions. In this way, routing protocols require an efficient relay placement service to find out the ideal location for UAVs that act as relay nodes, and thus mitigating the effects of UAV movements on the quality of experience (QoE) of transmitted videos. In this article, we introduce a massive analysis of our proposed relay placement mechanism, called MobiFANET, in order to diagnose the impact of videos with different characteristics on the QoE and route failure. We also present detailed information about the MobiFANET mechanism, as well as the contributions of each component on the routing performance. Simulation results show how MobiFANET works jointly with a routing protocol for satisfactory multimedia transmission, where it provides better QoE and a reduction of the number of route failures compared to existing routing protocols.

  • Performance analysis of DRX mechanism using batch arrival vacation
           queueing system with N -policy in LTE-A networks
    • Authors: Anupam Gautam; Gautam Choudhury; S. Dharmaraja
      Abstract: Power saving and Quality of Service (QoS) are the two significant aspects of Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) networks. DRX (“Discontinuous Reception”) is a mechanism, commonly exercised to enhance the power saving competency of a User Equipment (UE) in LTE-A networks. In this paper, based on the kind of traffic running at the UE, a new appliance is proposed to switch the DRX mechanism from the power active state to the power saving state and vice versa. We mathematically investigate this switching technique in DRX mechanism using the M[X]/G/1 vacation queue system with N-policy. Various performance and energy metrics are obtained and examined numerically. Further, the optimal value of N as well as the maximum number of DRX cycles, are computed to obtain the minimal amount of power consumption. This study concludes the selection guidelines for choosing the optimal values of N and the maximum number of DRX cycles.

  • A forwarding strategy based on ANFIS in internet-of-things-oriented
           wireless sensor network (WSN) using a novel fuzzy-based cluster head
    • Authors: Shishupal Kumar; Nidhi Lal; Vijay Kumar Chaurasiya
      Abstract: To give the complete description of an environment or to take a robust decision, a number of observations are collected and combined from the multiple sensor nodes. The process of combining and analyzing the observations is called multisensor data fusion. The fusion is used to produce more consistent, accurate, and useful information than that provided by any individual sensor node. For efficiency, data fusion is performed on the sensed sample collected by sensor nodes. However, fusion on the network path parameters is also essential to select an appropriate forwarding route for sending the data. In addition, to increase the lifetime of a network, an efficient strategy is needed in order to select a cluster head node. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a multisensor data fusion (MDF) strategy which performs fusion on collected network parameters for the selection of an appropriate path with collaboration of Fuzzy-based cluster head selection (FBCHS). Jointly, we named the strategy as the MDF-FBCHS strategy for IoT-oriented WSN. Extensive simulations were made, and related results showed that our proposed scheme has better performance compared with other schemes in our simulated scenarios.

  • Context-adaptive forwarding in mobile opportunistic networks
    • Authors: Radu-Ioan Ciobanu; Daniel Gutierrez Reina; Ciprian Dobre; Sergio L. Toral
      Abstract: When two opportunistic network peers encounter, utility functions are generally employed to select the messages that have to be exchanged, with the purpose of maximizing message delivery probability and reduce congestion. These functions compute weighted sums of various parameters, like centrality, similarity, and trust. Most of the existing solutions statically compute the weights based on offline observations and apply the same values regardless of a node’s context. However, mobile networks are not necessarily constant in terms of behavior and characteristics, so the classic approach might not be suitable. The network might be split into sub-networks, which behave differently from each other. Thus, in this paper, we show that, by dynamically adjusting the behavior of a node based on its context, through the adjustment of the utility function on the fly, the opportunistic forwarding process can be improved. We show that nodes behave differently from each other and have different views of the network. Through real-life trace-based simulations, we prove that our solution is feasible and is able to improve an opportunistic network’s performance from the standpoint of hit rate, latency, and delivery cost.

  • μ DTNSec: a security layer with lightweight certificates for
           Disruption-Tolerant Networks on microcontrollers
    • Authors: Dominik Schürmann; Georg von Zengen; Marvin Priedigkeit; Sebastian Willenborg; Lars Wolf
      Abstract: In Delay/Disruption-Tolerant Networks, man-in-the-middle attacks are easy: due to the store-carry-forward principle, an attacker can simply place itself on the route between source and destination to eavesdrop or alter bundles. This weakness is aggravated in networks, where devices are energy-constrained but the attacker is not. To protect against these attacks, we design and implement μDTNSec, a security layer for Delay/Disruption-Tolerant Networks on microcontrollers. Our design establishes a public key infrastructure with lightweight certificates as an extension to the Bundle Protocol. It has been fully implemented as an addition to μDTN on Contiki OS and uses elliptic curve cryptography and hardware-backed symmetric encryption. In this enhanced version of μDTNSec, public key identity bindings are validated by exchanging certificates using neighbor discovery. μDTNSec provides a signature mode for authenticity and a sign-then-encrypt mode for added confidentiality. Our performance evaluation shows that the choice of the curve dominates the influence of the payload size. We also provide energy measurements for all operations to show the feasibility of our security layer on energy-constrained devices. Because a high quality source of randomness is required, we evaluated the random number generators by the AT86RF231 radio, its successor AT86RF233, and one based on the noise of the A/D converter. We found that only AT86RF233 provides the required quality.

  • Time-constrained anycast routing under short contact duration in
           delay-tolerant networks
    • Authors: Tuan Le; Mario Gerla
      Abstract: Delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) are sparse mobile ad hoc networks, in which there is typically no complete path between the source and destination. Anycast is an important group communication paradigm for numerous DTN applications such as resource discovery and information exchange in emergency or crisis situations. Unlike unicast and multicast, which have been studied extensively in DTNs, few prior works have addressed the DTN anycast routing problem. Furthermore, they often ignore the time constraint and assume long contact durations in formulating the relay selection strategy. In this paper, we study a single-copy time-constrained anycast (TCA) routing under short contact duration. We address two key issues: (1) to which next hop relay node should messages be forwarded and (2) in which order should messages be forwarded. To reduce the transmission cost, we select relay nodes from both current and past contacts based on the one-hop and two-hop delivery probabilities, respectively. We derive the delivery probability from the distribution of inter-contact time and contact duration time. We address the case of exponential and Pareto distribution, which are the most popular assumptions in literature. For the message scheduling, messages with the highest delivery probability are prioritized to be transmitted first. Extensive simulation results based on Cabspotting and MIT Reality traces show that our scheme can achieve up to 29% higher delivery rate, 24% lower delay, and 36% lower transmission cost compared to other anycast routing strategies.

  • Grant-sizing-differentiated bandwidth allocation algorithm for the
           coexistence of ONUs with and without wavelength tunability in WDM/TDM PONs
    • Authors: Yuqi Yan; Chaoqin Gan; Zongkang Liu; Xingfeng Li; Hubao Qiao
      Abstract: Adopting the pay-as-you-grow approach to upgrade passive optical network (PON) facilities by WDM technology insures the smoothness of the upgrade, and also results in the coexistence of wavelength-fixed/tunable optical network units (ONUs) in WDM/TDM PONs. Dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) is the key to support such coexistence of heterogeneous ONUs. Thus, DBA is also the key to support the smooth evolution of PONs. To more fairly coordinate the bandwidth allocation among the coexisting heterogeneous ONUs, a differentiated grant sizing (DGS) scheme is proposed. In DGS, not only the fairness between the wavelength-fixed/tunable ONUs but also the fairness between the lightly/heavily loaded ONUs is taken into account. To further carry out load balancing among wavelengths, a grant scheduling scheme is also proposed to cooperate with the grant sizing scheme. In the grant scheduling scheme, a measure of the ONUs’ flexibility is given, and then the least flexible job first rule (LFJF) is adopted for joint wavelength and time-slot assignment. Finally, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm, a series of comparative analyses is conducted based on simulation experiments.

  • Reconfigurable remote radio head design and implementation for super base
           station applications
    • Authors: Yingjiao Ma; Jinglin Shi; Jinlong Hu
      Abstract: This paper proposes a reconfigurable remote radio head (RRH) software and hardware architecture and presents the results of its implementation. The implemented RRH has been designed for a centralized architecture super base station that facilitates the integration of 2G, 3G, and 4G ground base stations and geosynchronous equatorial orbit (GEO) satellite gateway stations. The reconfigurable RRH is a primary aspect of the system. By modifying the programmable software configuration from the perspective of software-defined radio, the RRH can support multiple frequency allocations. The RRH is composed of radio frequency (RF) modules, intermediate frequency (IF) modules, and some of the physical layer functions. The development of a reconfigurable IF module is emphasized. A filter-bank multiplexing technique has been employed for the IF module, which reduces the use of hardware resources. To this end, we experimentally evaluated the main key performance indicators (KPIs) of the RRH. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed design attains the goal of reducing hardware costs and improving system flexibility and stability.

  • Multi-agent cognitive architecture-enabled IoT applications of mobile edge
    • Authors: Vikas S. Shah
      Abstract: Mobile edge computing (MEC) offers cloud capabilities and service environment for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications at the edge of the mobile network. New services for a specific set of IoT application programming interfaces (APIs) of diversified industry verticals can efficiently be deployed. As the set of APIs based on the IoT continues to thrive, reliance on the underlying cloud computing to deliver real-time and context-based services is also prominent in MEC. Due to the increased level of mutual interference of IoT APIs, the complexities are also multiplied. The set of IoT APIs competes for available resources within heterogeneous clouds (HCs). It is further aggravated by the unprecedented number of connected devices. We are presenting a cognitive agent (CA)-oriented approach to proactively subordinate IoT APIs with HCs. This paper contributes to establish an empirical multi-agent cognitive architecture framework (MCAF) for continuous transition of IoT APIs. We identified an adaptable composition method and a classification technique for CAs during this research effort. It introduces rationalization of CA creation, migration, and control. The approach achieves transparency in the heterogeneity and distribution of IoT APIs. It provides dynamism of cloud computing environments. The paper also illustrates the architecture impact analysis with the indicative capabilities of auto-scaling, predictability in HCs’ resource use, and responsiveness and attainment of IoT APIs.

  • High-performance software implementations of SCAN decoder for polar codes
    • Authors: Bertrand Le Gal; Camille Leroux; Christophe Jego
      Abstract: This paper presents the first optimized software implementation of a SCAN decoder for Polar codes. Unlike SC and SC-List decoding algorithms, the SCAN decoding algorithm provides soft outputs (useful for, e.g., parallel concatenated decoders Zhang et al. IEEE Trans Commun 64(2):456–466 2016). Despite the strong data dependencies in the SCAN decoding, two highly parallel software implementations are devised for x86 processor target. Different parallelization strategies, algorithmic improvements, and source code optimizations were applied in order to enhance the throughput of the decoders. The impact of the parallelization approach, the code rate, and the code length on the throughput and the latency is investigated. Extensive experimentations demonstrate that the proposed software polar decoder can exceed 600 Mb/s on a single core and reaches multi-Gb/s when using four cores simultaneously. These decoders can then achieve real-time performance required in many applications such as software defined radio or cloud-RAN systems where network physical layer is implemented in software.
