Heterogeneous small-cell networks (HetNets) are considered to be a standard part of future mobile networks where operator/consumer deployed small-cells, such as femto-cells, relays, and distributed antennas (DAs), complement the existing macrocell infrastructure. This article proposes the need-oriented deployment of small-cells and device-to-device (D2D)(More)
The growth in mobile communications has resulted in a significant increase in energy consumption and carbon emissions, which could have serious economic and environmental implications. Consequently, energy consumption has become a key criterion for the design of future mobile communication systems. Device-to-device (D2D) communication has been shown to(More)
In multi-cell communication, users close to the cell boundaries tend to suffer interferences from other-cell users. Other-Cell Interference (OCI) coming from neighbouring cells considerably degrades the overall performance of the system. In this paper, we propose a precoding scheme for the multi-user multi-input multi-output (MIMO) downlink based on the(More)
With wireless communications increasingly becoming popular and convergent, service providers have to continuously upgrade their networks in order to support the increasing demand for bandwidth. However, given that wireless communication systems operate on radiofrequency waves, the health effects of electromagnetic (EM) emission from these systems are(More)
This paper provides a survey and tutorial of electromagnetic (EM) radiation exposure and reduction in mobile communication systems. EM radiation exposure has received a fair share of interest in the literature; however, this work is one of the first to compile the most interesting results and ideas related to EM exposure in mobile communication systems and(More)
Next generation cellular networks require huge capacity, ubiquitous coverage and maximum energy efficiency. In order to meet these targets, Device-to-device (D2D) communication is being considered for future heterogeneous networks (HetNets). In this paper, we consider a three tier hierarchical HetNet by exploiting D2D communication in traditional HetNet.(More)
The ubiquity and convergence of wireless communication services have contributed to an unprecedented popularity of mobile communications. Given that wireless communication systems operate on radiofrequency waves, the electromagnetic (EM) radiation exposure they generate is also unprecedented and, hence, this could have adverse health effects on both humans(More)
The increasing demand for data and multimedia services, as well as the ubiquitous nature of the current generation of mobile devices have resulted in continuous network upgrades to support an ever-increasing number of users. However, given that wireless communication systems operate on radiofrequency waves, the health effects of electromagnetic (EM)(More)
The popularity and convergence of wireless communications have resulted in continuous network upgrades to support the increasing demand for bandwidth. However, given that wireless communication systems operate on radio-frequency waves, the health effects of electromagnetic (EM) emission from these systems are increasingly becoming a concern due to the(More)
Optimization in mobile communications has mostly been performed based on spectral efficiency (SE). However, energy efficiency (EE) is fast becoming a key performance indicator, together with SE for designing future networks. In multi-cell communications, other-cell interference (OCI) coming from neighboring cells degrades both the SE and EE performances of(More)
