In order to meet the strong demand for wireless broadband services from fast-growing mobile users, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has initiated the standardization process of the next-generation mobile communication systems, entitled IMT-Advanced or fourth-generation (4G) mobile systems [1]. According to the performance and technical(More)
A hybrid system of cellular mode and device-todevice (D2D) mode is considered in this paper, where the cellular uplink resource is reused by the D2D transmission. In order to maximize the overall system performance, the mutual interference between cellular and D2D sub-systems has to be addressed. Here, two mechanisms are proposed to solve the problem: One(More)
Taking full advantages of both heterogeneous networks (HetNets) and cloud access radio access networks (CRANs), 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)
Machine-to-machine (M2M) communications are expected to provide ubiquitous connectivity between machines without the need of human intervention. To support such a large number of autonomous devices, the M2M system architecture needs to be extremely power and spectrally efficient. This article thus briefly reviews the features of M2M services in the third(More)
Performance analysis is presented for multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) relay channels with transmit antenna selection and maximal-ratio combining receive (TAS/MRC) in two-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) relay networks operating over flat Rayleigh fading channels, where the source and destination are equipped with Ns and Nd antennas, respectively, and(More)
In this paper, a novel OFDM-CDMA system with joint time-frequency spreading methods is proposed. The average bit error probability of the proposed system using maximum-ratio combining (MRC) is derived for a frequency-selective fading channel and that of conventional MC-CDMA is also presented for comparison. Numerical analysis and simulation results indicate(More)
