It has been predicted that the recent explosive growth in wireless data traffic will continue for the foreseeable future. To date, attempts to address this explosive growth have included increasing base station density through smaller cells, and to a lesser extent, by improving spectral efficiency using close-to-capacity channel coding and MIMO techniques.(More)
Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (DASH) is being adopted as a cost effective means for multimedia delivery. User Adaptive Video (UAV) is a new technique that exploits the perceptual limits of the human visual system to modulate a video stream's bit rate based on the viewing conditions, such as viewing distance and ambient illuminance, resulting in(More)
The evolution of cellular wireless communications has involved the introduction of technologies such as multiple antennas, OFDM, higher spectral efficiency through better modulation, denser deployments and carrier aggregation. A different approach to enhancing the cellular network by using direct communication between UEs is presented in this paper. Direct(More)
This paper studies the performance of a hybrid cellular network with cellular controlled direct radio links between multiple mobile User Equipments (UEs). The main focus is on the uplink of the proposed system with multiple idle UEs acting as relays to assist the communication of any given UE with an active connection. In the presence of multiple UEs as(More)
This paper describes a comprehensive system architecture that enables mobile-to-mobile communications for the purpose of enhancing the capacity of the cellular network. The architecture is developed using LTE Release-10 as the baseline. The impact on the protocol stack is discussed in detail. Neighbor discovery mechanisms are described to enable users to(More)
In the underlay cognitive radio approach, secondary users (SUs) are allowed to transmit their messages as long as the negative impact on the performance of the primary user (PU) is below a certain threshold. We consider a MIMO underlay cognitive radio network with a single PU and multiple SUs. We propose a practical interference alignment and cancellation(More)
