—LTE-A as a cellular technology has gained tremendous importance in recent years due to its high data-rates and improved data access for mobile devices. Recently, utilizing the unlicensed band as a supplementary band for LTE-A is being considered to expand the capacity of mobile systems. License-assisted access using LTE (LAA-LTE) will thus operate in the(More)
—In this work we consider nano-scale communication using bacterial populations as transceivers. We demonstrate using a microfluidic test-bed and a population of genetically engineered Escherichia coli bacteria serving as the communication receiver that a simple modulation like on-off keying (OOK) is indeed achievable, but suffers from very poor data-rates.(More)
In this work, we focus on the problem of source addressing in multiple source single receiver bacterial communication network. We propose amplitude-addressing, where the amplitude of transmitted signal is assigned as address of the source. We analyse the performance of the network with different addressing mechanisms and propose an optimum address sequence(More)
In this work, we focus on the problem of amplitude source addressing in a multiple source single receiver bacterial communication network. Amplitude addressing is an addressing mechanism where the amplitude of transmitted signal is assigned as address of the source. When multiple sources collide, receiver performs interference cancellation and minimizes(More)
We present nanoNS3, a network simulator for modeling Bacterial Molecular Communication (BMC) networks. nanoNS3 is built atop the Network Simulator 3 (ns-3). nanoNS3 is designed to achieve the following goals: 1) accurately and realistically model real world BMC, 2) maintain high computational efficiency, 3) allow newly designed protocols to be implemented(More)
—The ubiquitous adoption of WiFi implicitly introduces large diversity in types of application requirements and topological characteristics. Consequently, considerable attention is being devoted to making WiFi networks controllable without compromising their scalability. Within this broad paradigm, we propose Rhythm, a MAC protocol that achieves scheduled(More)
