We consider Device-to-Device (D2D) communication underlaying cellular networks to improve local services. The system aims to optimize the throughput over the shared resources while fulfilling prioritized cellular service constraints. Optimum resource allocation and power control between the cellular and D2D connections that share the same resources are(More)
We address resource sharing of the cellular network and a device-to-device (D2D) underlay communication assuming that the cellular network has control over the transmit power and the radio resources of D2D links. We show that by proper power control, the interference between two services can be coordinated to benefit the overall performance. In addition, we(More)
Device-to-Device communication underlaying a cellular network enables local services with limited interference to the cellular network. In this paper we study the optimal selection of possible resource sharing modes with the cellular network in a single cell. Based on the learning from the single cell studies we propose a mode selection procedure for a(More)
In this article we propose to facilitate local peer-to-peer communication by a Device-to-Device (D2D) radio that operates as an underlay network to an IMT-Advanced cellular network. It is expected that local services may utilize mobile peer-to-peer communication instead of central server based communication for rich multimedia services. The main challenge(More)
We address Device-to-Device (D2D) communication as a potential resource reuse technique underlaying the cellular network. We consider the shared channel of the two systems as an interference channel and formulate the statistics of the Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR) of all users. The potential performance of D2D communication is evaluated by(More)
We consider rate splitting and interference cancelation in Device-to-Device (D2D) communications underlaying a cellular network. We assume that a transmitted message is split into a private and a public part, as in Han-Kobayashi scheme. The private part is decodable only by the intended receiver, whereas the public part is in addition decodable by an(More)
We consider multiple relay selection for proactive relaying with diverse mean channel gains on different links. We consider a variable rate system where the transmission rate is maximized based on an end-to-end (e2e) channel gain. We consider two relay selection methods and provide an efficient algorithm for selecting an optimal set of active relay nodes,(More)
In wireless sensor networks, query execution over a specific geographical region is an essential function for collecting sensed data. However, sensor nodes deployed in sensor networks have limited battery power. Hence, the minimum number of connected sensor nodes that covers the queried region in a sensor network must be determined. This paper proposes an(More)
