To mitigate the severe inter-tier interference and enhance limited cooperative gains resulting from the constrained and non-ideal transmissions between adjacent base stations in heterogeneous networks (HetNets), heterogeneous cloud radio access networks (H-CRANs) are proposed as cost-efficient potential solutions through incorporating the cloud computing(More)
The simultaneous wireless transfer of information and power with the help of a relay equipped with multiple antennas is considered in this letter, where a " harvest-and-forward " strategy is proposed. In particular, the relay harvests energy and obtains information from the source with the radio-frequent signals by jointly using the antenna selection (AS)(More)
As a promising paradigm for fifth generation (5G) wireless communication systems, cloud radio access networks (C-RANs) have been shown to reduce both capital and operating expenditures, as well as to provide high spectral efficiency (SE) and energy efficiency (EE). The fronthaul in such networks, defined as the transmission link between a baseband unit(More)
—Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) has recently received considerable attention as a promising candidate for 5G systems. A key feature of NOMA is that users with better channel conditions have prior information about the messages of the other users. This prior knowledge is fully exploited in this paper, where a cooperative NOMA scheme is proposed.(More)
Compared with the fourth generation (4G) cellular systems, the fifth generation wireless communication systems (5G) are anticipated to provide spectral and energy efficiency growth by a factor of at least 10, and the area throughput growth by a factor of at least 25. To achieve these goals, a heterogeneous cloud radio access network (H-CRAN) is presented in(More)
—Taking full advantages of both heterogeneous networks (HetNets) and cloud access radio access networks (C-RANs), heterogeneous cloud radio access networks (H-CRANs) are presented to enhance both the spectral and energy efficiencies, where remote radio heads (RRHs) are mainly used to provide high data rates for users with high quality of service (QoS)(More)
