—In this paper, a novel cross-layer framework for optimizing the dynamic bandwidth allocation (DBA) of a digital video broadcast (DVB)-return channel satellite (RCS) system using adaptive coding is proposed. The design of the medium access control (MAC) methods taking into account the adaptive physical layer and higher layers' quality of service (QoS)(More)
In this paper, we assess the physical-layer secrecy performance of the amplify-and-forward compressed sensing (AF-CS) framework when malicious eavesdropping nodes are listening. In particular, we investigate the robustness of the AF-CS scheme in the presence of a group of coordinated eavesdropping nodes under the assumption that they have corrupted channel(More)
An open issue still to be addressed in low-power lossy networks (LLNs) is how the application requirements, the available transport services, the network layer routes, and the data link-layer resources are mapped efficiently. This can be explained by the fact that, in most LLNs, link-layer resources cannot be easily managed; this results in a best effort IP(More)
Recommended by Alagan Anpalagan We analyze the existing trade-offs in terms of system performance versus fairness of a cooperative system based on opportunistic relay selection (ORS) and with outdated channel state information (CSI). In particular, system performance is analytically evaluated in terms of outage probability, and the fairness behavior is(More)
—In this paper, we consider a cooperative system based on relay selection in a scenario where the available channel state information (CSI) is subject to delays. In order to exploit the selection diversity gains of the system while providing robustness against CSI inaccuracy, we propose a robust relay selection strategy based on a minimum mean square error(More)
approach sustained by the powerful framework of convex optimization. The paper proposes a hierarchical dynamic bandwidth allocation approach, which is motivated by the computational complexity of the single-step solution. More specifically, we obtain and analyze the optimal time duration of the time slots and jointly, we make a fair allocation of slots to(More)
— This paper presents a general framework and the corresponding solution for the problem of fair resource allocation among entities with absolute and relative QoS requirements. It is described how the framework can be applied to a variety of scenarios, in particular to the scheduling of the TDM transmission in DVB-S2 and to the dynamic bandwidth allocation(More)
The work presents the development of a navigation system based on wireless sensor networks specially designed for elderly care applications. The main constraints of the application scenario are analysed and the tracking algorithm is designed following the application constraints. The tracking is done by the fusion of RSSI measurements using the weighted(More)
