A novel multiple input multiple output (MIMO) transmitting scheme is presented for multibeam satellite systems, where the objective is to increase the system sum rate, availability and variance performance.
— In ad-hoc radio networks, mechanisms on how to access the radio channel are extremely important in order to improve network efficiency and, when needed, to guarantee QoS. Traditionally, Medium Access Control (MAC) protocols in ad hoc networks have been designed to face off the well known collision resolution problem. However, when using advanced signal… (More)
— In this paper, the problem of resource allocation in multiuser single-antenna wideband OFDM(A) systems is considered from a cross-layer point of view. The main motivation is to show advantages of such systems with respect to narrowband systems. Despite the maximum normalized average throughput is not increased with respect to that in a narrowband system,… (More)
A multibeam satellite scenario is considered along this paper to test for the benefits of dual polarization. Several multiple input multiple output (MIMO) transmitting schemes are proposed to deal with the dual polarization, where the results show that dual polarization is better employed as an interference rejection tool.
In multiple access wireless channels mechanisms for an efficient management of the channel usage are of special interest. Particularly, in multiple access systems with multiple transmit and receive antenna, many antenna selection algorithms that exploit instantaneous channel information have been presented in the literature. On the other hand, MAC protocols… (More)
— The paper has two parts: First, we present an overview of the IST WIreless DEployable Network System (WIDENS) Project. This project aims to define an easily deploy-able communication system to be used by emergency services and public safety in general. In this context, users require a communication system that should not depend on pre-existent… (More)
