Abstract—Recent advances in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology have boosted the deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Limited by energy storage capability of sensor nodes, it(More)
The phenomenal growth of mobile data demand has brought about increasing scarcity in available radio spectrum. Meanwhile, mobile customers pay more attention to their own experience especially in communication reliability and service continuity on the move. To address these issues, LTE-unlicensed (LTE-U) is considered as one of the latest groundbreaking(More)
—In this paper, we analyze the user accommodation capabilities of LTE-A systems with carrier aggregation for the LTE users and LTE-A users, respectively. The adopted performance metric is equivalent capacity (EC), defined as the maximum number of users allowed in the system given the user QoS requirements. Specifically, both LTE and LTE-A users are divided(More)
—Green energy is emerging as a promising alternative energy source to power network devices in next-generation wireless networks. Different from traditional energy, green energy is replenished from nature, e.g., solar and wind, and is highly dependent on the capacities and locations of the electronic devices. As such, the fundamental design criterion in the(More)
—In this paper, we study the resource allocation in a device-to-device (D2D) communication underlaying green cellular network, where the base station (BS) is powered by sustainable energy. Our objective is to enhance the network sustainability and efficiency by introducing power control and cooperative communication. Specifically, we propose optimal power(More)
—Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) standard with Carrier Aggregation (CA) is emerging as a promising technology for 4G mobile communication systems to fulfill tremendous growth of high-data-rate demand. However, in LTE-A systems with CA, the uplink Radio Resource Management (RRM) performance is greatly limited by the insufficient user transmission power(More)
—It is anticipated that future wireless networks will make use of more renewable energy sources, e.g., solar, wind, and hydro, etc., in order to sustain the ever-growing traffic demands, while mitigating the effects of increased energy consumption. The most critical issue of developing a sustainable communications network is how to cost-effectively deploy(More)
