— Long Term Evolution (LTE) supports closed-loop MIMO techniques to improve its performance, but in order to exploit multiuser MIMO channel capabilities, the design of an efficient MAC scheme that supports Multiuser MIMO is still an open issue in the literature. This paper proposes a novel energy efficient MAC scheme for LTE, which aims to achieve(More)
In OFDM wireless networks, the radio resources are assigned to the users based on their quality of service needs and depending on their channel quality. Thus, during a call session, the bandwidth requirements and needed radio resources may increase from negotiated call setup resources. In this study, we propose a call admission control reservation algorithm(More)
Distributed base stations are studied in the framework of LTE public safety networks. In the proposed model, users are connected to remote radio heads deployed throughout the cell and connected to a central base station. In this paper, resource allocation for the purpose of real-time video transmission, in the uplink and downlink, is investigated, and the(More)
One of the radio resource management (RRM) functionalities in LTE systems, call admission control (CAC) is employed to control the number of LTE bearer requests in order to maintain the quality of service (QoS) of the admitted bearers. However, no quality guarantee can be provided due to the inherently dynamic nature of wireless communication. For example,(More)
—We extend vehicular cooperation into downlink LTE-A networks in what we call Infrastructure-to-Relaying-Vehicles (I2RV) cooperation. In I2RV, vehicles are used as relaying terminals between eNodeB/BS and a receiving user equipment located or mounted on another traveling vehicle, for the aim of extending coverage, improving performance, and attaining(More)
The introduction of femtocells enabled high data rates and better indoor coverage without the need for expanding or increasing the density of cellular networks deployment or upgrading the cellular network infrastructure. Despite this direct advantage, the introduction of femtocells challenges traditional interference mechanisms because of the ad hoc and(More)
