  • 6 GHz Spectrum Needs for Wi-Fi 7

      Authors: Dmitry Akhmetov;Reza Arefi;Hassan Yaghoobi;Carlos Cordeiro;Dave Cavalcanti;
      Pages: 5 - 7
      Abstract: There is insufficient license-exempt spectrum in 2.4 GHz and the 5 GHz bands to accommodate the growth in demand with the expected quality of service (QoS) of the current applications (video streaming, gaming, voice, etc.) and, at the same time, to enable new innovative services and usage scenarios that make use of the Wi-Fi network. Therefore, user experience is compromised due to channel congestion. Allocation of the 1200 MHz of contiguous spectrum in the 6 GHz band to license-exempt operation provides sufficient bandwidth such that Wi-Fi 6E and the next generation of Wi-Fi, namely Wi-Fi 7, can benefit from the cleaner, non-overlapping larger channel bandwidths of up to 320 MHz.

      Authors: Juho Lee;Mihai Enescu;Asbjørn Grøvlen;Yu Zhang;
      Pages: 12 - 12
      Abstract: The multi-input multi-output (MIMO) technology is proven salient in cellular wireless communications standards for improving end-user experience by increasing the overall spectral efficiency. With the advent of antenna technologies such as active antennas and two-dimensional arrays, deploying base stations with tens or hundreds of antenna elements has become feasible and it is an essential component for successful deployments of 5G New Radio (NR) technologies standardized by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Also included in 5G NR is the use of mmWave bands where an analog-beam-based transmission and reception paradigm, termed the beam management, poses a new set of challenges and requirements. The initial release of 5G NR, i.e., Rel-15 includes the support of high-resolution channel state information (CSI) to facilitate efficient multi-user MIMO operation, multiple transmit/receive points (multi-TRP) operation, and beam management. Such features are enabled by basic components such as reference signals for facilitating demodulation and CSI measurements, CSI reporting mechanisms for link adaptation and scheduling, transmission schemes for downlink and uplink, and control signaling. 5G NR MIMO has been enhanced in 3GPP Rel-16 and Rel-17 standards. Following the recent completion of Rel-17 standards, 5G NR MIMO would be further enhanced in Rel-18 taking into account various requests to enable new products and more flexible network deployments.

      Authors: Mostafa Khoshnevisan;Keeth Jayasinghe;Runhua Chen;Alexei Davydov;Li Guo;
      Pages: 13 - 19
      Abstract: In this article, we discuss the evolution of multi-TRP transmission, which consists of several MIMO features of the 5G New Radio standardization. First, we describe the Rel-16 basic multi-TRP fea-ture that mainly targets downlink data channel enhancements and consists of two different frame-works to address both ideal and non-ideal back-haul scenarios. Next, we describe some of the Rel-17 enhancements such as reliability enhancements for downlink control channel, reliability enhancements for uplink data and uplink control channels, beam management enhancements for multi-TRP, and enhancements that address high-speed train deployment with single-frequency network (SFN) transmission. We also briefly describe other multi-TRP related enhancements in Rel-17 such as inter-cell multi-TRP transmission and joint channel state information for multi-TRP schemes.

  • Enhancing 5G MIMO Core Spectral Efficiency with Higher-Resolution
           Multi-User MIMO and Multi-Beam Operation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Eko Onggosanusi;Min Zhang;Yushu Zhang;Jiwon Kang;
      Pages: 20 - 26
      Abstract: In this article, the evolution of two core multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) features of the 5G New Radio standardization is described along with their motivations, salient designs, and demonstrated benefits. The first feature enables high spectral efficiency with reduced overhead and complexity in the sub-6 GHz regime by exploiting frequency-domain compression and angle-delay reciprocity inherent in high-resolution precoding codebooks for multi-user MIMO. The second feature, intended for the over-6 GHz regime, facilitates streamlined beam management with greatly reduced signaling overhead and latency as well as improved link reliability in the presence of challenging scenarios such as high mobile speed, large number of analog beams, and unpre-dictable signal blocking. The presented features are the outcome of a five-year work and expected to continue evolving to meet a growing number of challenges from new deployment scenarios.

      Abstract: To keep supporting next-generation requirements, the radio access infrastructure will increasingly densify. Cell-free (CF) network architectures are emerging, combining dense deployments with extreme flexibility in allocating resources to users. In parallel, the Open Radio Access Networks (O-RAN) paradigm is transforming RAN toward an open, intelligent, virtualized, and fully interoperable architecture. This paradigm brings the needed flexibility and intelligent control opportunities for CF networking. In this article, we document the current O-RAN terminology and contrast it with some common CF processing approaches. We then discuss the main O-RAN innovations and research challenges that remain to be solved.

  • Enhancements on Type-II 5G New Radio Codebooks for UE Mobility Scenarios

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Venkatesh Ramireddy;Marcus Grossmann;Markus Landmann;Giovanni Del Galdo;
      Pages: 35 - 40
      Abstract: This article focuses on potential enhancements of current 5G New Radio (NR) codebooks (CBs) for user equipment (UE) mobility scenarios. An overview of the incremental evolution of the 5G NR Type-II CBs is presented, and its inherent drawbacks in mobility scenarios are discussed. The current Type-II CBs fail to deliver adequate performance when used by moving UEs at medium to high speeds, mainly due to the current channel coherence time-based CSI measurement and reporting. Measured channel data from a number of real-world scenarios are analyzed by means of Doppler power spectrum and delay-Doppler power spectrum to verify the so-called channel stationarity time, which is several-fold higher than the channel coherence time. Based on the presented analysis, conclusions are drawn that for stationarity time-based CSI measurements and reporting, Doppler frequency components in addition to space and delay components can be exploited for Type-II CB enhancements. The enhanced Type-II CB achieves a drastic feedback reduction due to the sparse nature of the channel in the delay-Doppler domain and improved performance compared to the 5G NR Type-II CB.

      Abstract: Ultra-low-latency and reliable communications is perhaps the most challenging task in future wireless networks because of its demanding requirements of low latency combined with ultra-high reliability. The number of connected devices and data traffic is increasing exponentially every day, and future data-intensive applications like augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR), holographic communications, vehicle-to-everything (V2X), autonomous driving, high precision manufacturing, and ultra-massive machine-type communications wil demand high throughput, ultra-reliable transmission, extremely low latency, and high energy efficiency. This Series issue introduces four high-quality articles presenting discussions on new techniques and concepts, standards, future applications, network architectures, challenges, and promising solutions for ultra-high-speed, low-latency, and reliable communications in future networks. In the following, we introduce these articles and highlight their main contributions.

  • An Edge-Computing-Enabled Trust Mechanism for Underwater Acoustic Sensor
           Networks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jiaxin Du;Guangjie Han;Chuan Lin;
      Pages: 44 - 51
      Abstract: The trust model has become a promising mechanism to detect anomalous sensor nodes and guarantee security in underwater acoustic sensor networks (UASNs). A trust model is realized by collecting different trust metrics and transforming them into trust values as reliability measurements. However, trust collection and calculation exhibit high latency in the traditional UASN structure, and anomalous nodes cannot be identified quickly. In addition, despite the existing extensive research on trust management, the adaptive adjustment of the weights for different trust metrics has not been solved yet. To tackle these challenges, we integrate edge computing technology into UASNs, and regard the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) as the edge device to provide low-latency trust modeling services. We propose an attention-based trust model for edge-computing-enabled UASNs, which we name ATrust. The attention mechanism can adaptively adjust the contributions of different metrics to trust modeling, since the attention mechanism highlights the valuable trust metrics related to the final trust evaluation results. In addition, we present the deployment strategy for AUVs to reduce the probability of being attacked by analyzing the characteristics of the thermocline in the ocean.

      Abstract: The fifth generation (5G) and beyond networks promote new business opportunities not only for mobile network operators but also for industrial verticals. However, most currently deployed 5G networks are public mobile networks developed for generalized purposes, limiting their adoption for various industrial fields demanding specialized quality of service. The new trend in applying 5G and beyond networks to industrial fields requires a new design paradigm shift calling for customized network structure, network resources, and network management. In customized 5G and beyond private networks (C5GBPN), network structure can be designed to be standalone or integrated; network resources can be designated to be exclusive or shared; and network management, including access control, data control, and governance, needs to be revisited. The flexibility of C5GBPN is of paramount importance for various application scenarios of industrial verticals, such as ultra-reliable low-latency communications, enhanced mobile broadband, massive machine-type communications, and positioning. In this regard, we first present the background and motivation of developing C5GBPN in this article. Then we provide three types of C5GBPN and discuss their pros and cons. Also, we provide feasible solutions to deal with these foreseeable design challenges of C5GBPN.

  • Secure 5G-Assisted UAV Access Scheme in IoBT for Region Demarcation and

      Abstract: This article proposes a generic scheme that integrates blockchain (BC) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) through a fifth-generation (5G) Tactile Internet (TI) service to leverage responsive and secure communications in the Internet-of-Battlefield-Things (IoBT)-based ecosystems. UAVs are deployed with camera sensors to monitor and transfer ultra-high resolution (UHR) images and real-time live video feeds of region demarcation and surveillance to ground control stations (GCS). Currently, UAVs operate through Long-Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) services and face bottlenecks in terms of bandwidth and end latency for live feeds. As the feed is sent through open channels, it is vulnerable to security attacks by an adversary. The proposed scheme addresses the dual issues of responsive network orchestration, and induces trust, immutability, and transparency in shared data among UAVs and GCSs via BC as a key solution. Through a case study, the scheme is compared to baseline LTE services. In the simulation, transactions through BC achieve 31.85 percent improvement over cloud-based GCS, an average frame loss of 18.42 percent in 5G-TI compared to 94.07 percent in 4G-LTE-A channel, and processing latency of 0.1061 s in 5G-TI, compared to 2.2133 s in 4G-LTE, which indicates the viability of the proposed scheme.

      Pages: 67 - 74
      Abstract: Seamless connectivity and ultra-reliable data transmission are among the ever increasing demands for a ubiquitous, smart, and automated future digital society with 5G technology. However, substantial delay restricted applications always invoke a problem with 5G and beyond 5G technologies due to long-distance communication and service deployment in the centralized cloud server. These limitations spur research initiatives for the coming generation of 6G technology that can concatenate a voluminous assortment of far-reaching terminal applications. In addition, edge computing is recognized as a pioneer of emerging technology to reduce energy and latency by offering ultra-reliable low-latency communication and computation services at the edge of the network. Motivated by the importance of the above mentioned technologies, in this article, we discuss the emerging 6G technology and its benefits toward edge networks for processing real-time applications. We shed light on several challenging issues for collaborating on 6G and edge computing, based on the review of 5G deployment, network coverage, technology requirement, and challenges. Further, future research directions of 6G-based edge computing are also discussed in order to integrate ultra-reliable 6G technology into the edge networks for processing real-time applications.

      Abstract: The representation of vehicular transportation in fifth generation (5G) networks requires complete projection of virtual reality that surrounds any of the vehicles at a specific location. The challenge obviously appears when trying to identify what type of data is to be captured and how such data would be processed. In reality, there would be multiple sensors that monitor and sense the physical domain with multi-service management entities for each category of these sensors. The 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) provides technical specification for such data modeling in TS 22.261 to handle multi-model virtual reality (VR) applications. This standard shows the management of multi-modality outputs, data transfer over separated links, and the multi-service processors per data type. Obviously, the success of such a system is very dependent on synchronizing the data transfers across a large network to multiple destinations and the retrieval of outputs to build the VR at the central unit of the transportation system. Although this seems to be a little similar to multi-slice services that 5G supports, this modeling is very much dependent on achieving time alignment between data transactions. The technical enablers for such a system will range from cross-service analytics capture to cross-domain orchestrators. Considering the strict key performance indicators (KPls) for transport VR and dynamic adaptation in cloud-based networks, it is most likely that such a system will not be deployed until the next mobile generation. By then, vendors and operators will have evolved the current network topology and data filtering techniques to be able to support such multi-modality platforms with high user experience.

  • Post-Quantum Era in V2X Security: Convergence of Orchestration and
           Parallel Computation

      Abstract: Along with the potential emergence of quantum computing, safety and security of new and complex communication services such as automated driving need to be redefined in the post-quantum era. To ensure reliable, continuous, and secure operation of these scenarios, quantum-resistant security algorithms (QRSAs) that enable secure connectivity must be integrated into the network management and orchestration systems of mobile networks. This article explores a road-map study of post-quantum era convergence with cellular connectivity using the Service & Computation Orchestrator (SCO) framework for enhanced data security in radio access and backhaul transmission with a particular focus on vehicle-to-everything services. Using NTRU as a QSRA, we show that the parallelization performance of the Toom-Cook and Karatsuba computation methods can vary based on different CPU load conditions through extensive simulations, and that the SCO framework can facilitate the selection of the most efficient computation for a given QRSA. Finally, we discuss the evaluation results, identify the current standardization efforts, and present possible directions for the coexistence of post-quantum and mobile network connectivity through an SCO framework that leverages parallel computing.

      Abstract: In recent years, the evolution of road vehicles has strongly required common rules to manage cybersecurity in the automotive industry. In this article, we summarize the ISO/SAE 21434 standard, focusing on the main requirements, work products, and innovations. We identify with an ego-network the possible correlation of ISO/SAE 21434 with the already existing automotive standards, reporting a strong correlation with the ISO 26262 safety standard. Following, we discuss the relationship between safety and security in the automotive field, and between ISO/SAE 21434 and regulation UNECE WP.29 R155. Then we focus on possible limits and implementations of the standard such as the introduction of application methods or specific thresholds for the required security risk analysis. Finally, we propose a structured list of documents that can be used as a landmark to achieve compliance with the cyber-security standard and an example of the application of ISO/SAE 21434 to an electric window power regulator system.

      Abstract: Mobility management in a sliced 5G network introduces new and complex challenges. In a network-sliced environment, user mobility has to be managed among not only different base stations or access technologies but also different slices. Managing user mobility among slices, or inter-slice mobility, motivates the need for new solutions. This article, presented as a tutorial, focuses on the problem of inter-slice mobility from the perspective of 3GPP standards for 5G. It provides a detailed overview of the relevant 3GPP standard principles. Accordingly, key technical gaps, challenges, and corresponding research directions are identified toward achieving seamless inter-slice mobility within the current 3GPP network slicing framework.

  • Context-Aware Security for 6G Wireless: The Role of Physical Layer
           Security

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Pages: 102 - 108
      Abstract: Sixth generation systems are expected to face new security challenges, while opening up new frontiers toward context awareness in the wireless edge. The workhorse behind this projected technological leap will be a whole new set of sensing capabilities predicted for 6G devices, in addition to edge and device embedded intelligence. The combination of these enhanced traits can give rise to a new breed of adaptive and context-aware security protocols, following the quality of security (QoSec) paradigm. In this framework, physical layer security solutions emerge as competitive candidates for low-complexity, low-delay, low-footprint, adaptive, flexible, and context-aware security schemes, leveraging the physical layer and introducing security controls across all layers for the first time.
