—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)
—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 novel rateless multiple access scheme based on the recently proposed capacity-approaching analog fountain code (AFC). We show that the multiple access process will create an equivalent analog fountain code, referred to as the multiple access analog fountain code (MA-AFC), at the destination. Thus, the standard belief propagation(More)
