The 802.11e and subsequently the 802.11n amendments brought Quality of Service (QoS) into the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) arena, in order to provide higher access priority to certain types of traffic such as video and voice. Unfortunately these improvements are not enough, since in very dense and highly loaded network conditions they can provide more(More)
5th Generation (5G) small cells are expected to satisfy the increasing demand for wireless data traffic. In the presence of large scale dense and randomly deployed cells, autonomous and distributed configuration mechanisms are highly desirable. However, small cells typically serve a small number of users, such that sudden traffic imbalances between downlink(More)
Full duplex allows a device to transmit and receive simultaneously in the same frequency band, theoretically doubling the throughput compared to traditional half duplex systems. However, several limitations restrict the promised full duplex gain: non-ideal self-interference cancellation, increased inter-cell interference and traffic constraints. In this(More)
Full duplex communication promises system performance improvement over conventional half duplex communication by allowing simultaneous transmission and reception. However, such concurrent communication results in strong self interference and an increase in the overall network interference, and can only be exploited when traffic is available in both(More)
