It is becoming feasible to stream user generated video directly to the Internet, which enables a new class of exciting applications and services. However, energy consumption of smartphones that transmit the content over mobile network is a limiting factor. We study the potential of frame bundling to save energy while streaming video through a LTE uplink.… (More)
—This article addresses the market-changing phenomenon of the Internet of Things (IoT), which relies on the underlying paradigm of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications to integrate a plethora of various sensors, actuators, and smart meters across a wide spectrum of businesses. The M2M landscape features today an extreme diversity of available… (More)
In this paper we propose a heuristic opportunistic scheduler that is consistent with the resource allocation constraints of the uplink channel for 3G long term evolution (LTE) systems. Retransmission processes as well as channel conditions are taken into account in the formation of the scheduling decision. The heuristic scheduler could be seen a reasonable… (More)
—In this paper we study the performance of the Heuristic Localized Gradient Algorithm (HLGA) that was designed for uplink scheduling in 3G long term evolution (LTE) systems. The performance of the algorithm is examined when dynamic traffic models are assumed. With dynamic traffic, users will have different buffer occupancies. The amount of resources granted… (More)
—The WCDMA uplink has recently been enhanced with hybrid ARQ, scheduling, and shorter TTI to provide improved performance for packet data services in terms of reduced delays, improved availability of high data rates, and increased capacity. This paper gives an overview of the design targets, the basic principles, and how they are integrated into WCDMA.
