Keywords: Terahertz band Ultra-broadband communications Terabit-per-second (Tbps) links Graphene a b s t r a c t The expectedly very limited communication distance of nanoscale machines in the Tera-hertz Band (0.1–10 THz) is one of the main factors narrowing the scope of the nanonetwork-ing applications. In this paper, the use of the transparency windows in(More)
Recent advances in wireless communications technology and car industry made it possible to consider wireless Ad-hoc (or mixed Ad-hoc/infrastructure) networks, providing connectivity among vehicles on the road. Such network, often referred to as VANET (Vehicular Ad-hoc Network) is seen to be one of the most valuable concept for improving efficiency and(More)
While operators have finally started to deploy fourth generation broadband technology, many believe it will still be insufficient to meet the anticipated demand in mobile traffic over the coming years. Generally , the natural way to cope with traffic acceleration is to reduce cell size; and this can be done in many ways. The most obvious method is via(More)
—IEEE 802.11p/WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments) is an emerging family of standards intended to support wireless access in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). Broadcasting of data and control packets is expected to be crucial in this environment. Both safety-related and non-safety applications rely on broadcasting for the exchange of data or(More)
In vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) beaconing is one of the core communication modes, which is designed to advertise the presence of a car to its neighborhood. For practical applications the delivery of beacons containing the speed, the direction and the position of a car should be organized both timely and successfully. IEEE 802.11p is the most recent(More)
—This article addresses the market-changing phenomenon of the Internet of Things (IoT), which relies on the underlying paradigm of machine-to-machine (M2M) communications to integrate a plethora of various sensors, actuators, and smart meters across a wide spectrum of businesses. The M2M landscape features today an extreme diversity of available(More)
It is well-known that next generation (5G) wireless networks will need to provide orders of magnitude more capacity to address the predicted growth in mobile traffic demand, as well as support reliable connectivity for billions of diverse devices, which comprise the “Internet of Things.” While the industry is focused on a concerted effort to(More)
