In this paper a comparison in performance between hard and soft decision Viterbi decoding, with application to the HIPERLAN/2 standard, is presented. The results show that when channel state information (CSI) is included in the generation of the soft decision information, the soft decision method greatly outperforms the hard method. Moreover, a simplified(More)
In this paper we introduce the concept of lowest density MDS array codes on incomplete graphs. Array codes are used to protect against erasures by adding redundancy. Application examples are networks of wireless sensors or smart meters, where nodes can exchange data between themselves and store parity information for protection against multiple node(More)
This deliverable brings forward how cooperation between network nodes and elements can be used for energy-aware cooperative decision and control. It builds on the cooperation enablers which were studied in D3.1 and presents system models which will be used in future research. Along with these models, mechanisms for energy-efficient cooperative designs are(More)
