In this paper, we introduce a new cost function for SIR-Based uplink power control algorithms that takes into account transmission power level as well as target Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SIR) deviation. Existence of Nash equilibrium point, its uniqueness and the algorithm convergence are proved in the framework of so-called standard power control(More)
In this paper, a novel cooperative transmission scheme via network coding has been proposed for Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) to enhance reliability and throughput. In the proposed scheme, namely Random XOR Network Coding (RXNC), each relay demodulates the received signal from each sensor node and then selects d different coded symbols amongst them(More)
Future machine to machine (M2M) communications need to support a massive number of devices communicating with each other with little or no human intervention. Random access techniques were originally proposed to enable M2M multiple access, but suffer from severe congestion and access delay in an M2M system with a large number of devices. In this paper, we(More)
In this paper, we propose a distributed rateless coding (DRC) scheme for a two-user cooperative system. In DRC, the overall transmission is divided into two phases, a broadcast phase and a cooperation phase. In the broadcast phase, each user keeps transmitting its rateless coded symbols to the other user and the destination until its message has been(More)
In this paper, we propose a practical network coding approach for wireless body are networks (WBANs) using decode-and-forward relays. In this scheme, namely decode and forward-network coding (DF-NC), each relay linearly combines different messages from different sources to generate one message, and then transmits that message to the destination. Each relay(More)
In this paper, we propose a capacity-approaching analog fountain code (AFC) for wireless channels. In AFC, the number of generated coded symbols is potentially limitless. In contrast to the conventional binary rateless codes, each coded symbol in AFC is a real-valued symbol, generated as a weighted sum of d randomly selected information bits, where d and(More)
In this paper, we propose an analog rateless code to achieve high spectral-efficient adaptive transmission and increase the system throughput in AWGN channels. In the proposed analog rateless coding scheme, each coded symbol is generated from a number of information bits that are selected uniformly at random and multiplied by some real values obtained(More)
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises ubiquitous connectivity of everything everywhere, which represents the biggest technology trend in the years to come. It is expected that by 2020 over 25 billion devices will be connected to cellular networks; far beyond the number of devices in current wireless networks. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications aims at(More)
In this paper, we propose a new rateless coded cooperation scheme for a general multi-user cooperative wireless system. We develop cooperation methods based on Raptor codes with the assumption that the channels face erasure with specific erasure probabilities and transmitters have no channel state information. A fully coded cooperation (FCC) and a partially(More)
In this paper, we propose a physical-layer rateless code for wireless channels. A novel rateless encoding scheme is developed to overcome the high error floor problem caused by the low-density generator matrix (LDGM)-like encoding scheme in conventional rateless codes. This is achieved by providing each symbol with approximately equal protection in the(More)
