Whereas the development of telecommunication equipment and services moves at a fast pace, infrastructure deployment, in contrast, is a slow and costly process, demanding a long-range strategic perspective in decision making. As a consequence, R&D efforts in this area are concerned with problems on a time horizon of 10 years or more. Studying the feasibility(More)
Virtual Cellular Networks (VCN) are an attractive type of adap-tive wireless communication architecture for propagation-and coverage-limited environments. In this paper, we investigate the advantages of combining a VCN and multiple receiving antennas for the downlink resulting in a MIMO system. Several ways to combine the signals with different levels of(More)
Interactions between particles are dependent on the physicochemical characteristics of the interacting particles but it is also important to consider the manufacturing process. Blending active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) with carrier is a critical stage that determines the blend homogeneity and is the first step towards obtaining the final quality of(More)
Telecommunication infrastructure deployment, in contrast to the rest of the communication area, is a slow and costly process, demanding a long-range strategic perspective in decision making. Determining key issues for strategic research in this area is thus very important. This paper describes detailed work to that aim, within the PCC project. The aim was(More)
In this paper, we propose a joint channel estimation and decoding scheme using soft bit output information in OFDM-based systems. In order to estimate the complex OFDM channel amplitudes, the estimation algorithms usually rely on the Pilot Signal Assisted Modulation (PSAM). We enhanced this method by using the soft code bits after each turbo decoding(More)
