Multicast services, whereby a common valuable message needs to reach a whole population of user equipments (UEs), are gaining attention on account of new applications such as vehicular networks. As it proves challenging to guarantee decodability by every UE in a large population, service reliability is indeed the Achilles' heel of multicast transmissions. To circumvent this problem, a two-phase protocol capitalizing on device-to-device (D2D) links between UEs has been proposed, which overcomes…

D2D-Aided Multi-Antenna Multicasting under Generalized CSIT

A general two-phase framework that is applicable to the cases of perfect, statistical, and topological CSIT in the presence of multiple antennas at the BS and overcome the worst-UE bottleneck behavior in all the considered CSIT configurations is proposed.

D2D-Aided Multi-Antenna Multicasting in a Dense Network

This work designs a two-phase scheme that exploits multi-antenna transmission at the BS and D2D communications between the UEs to achieve a non-vanishing multicast rate when the number of UEs grows large.

Decentralized coordination methods for beam alignment and resource allocation in 5G wireless networks. (Méthodes de coordination décentralisées pour alignement de faisceaux et allocation de ressources pour la 5G)

This thesis focuses on decentralized cooperative methods for massive multiantenna transmission optimization that are implemented at the cooperating devices themselves, and considers the important limitation factors which hinder perfect coordination such as the measurement noise and the limited information exchange capabilities between the cooperating nodes.

Sidelink-Aided Multiquality Tiled 360° Virtual Reality Video Multicast

A utility model for each scenario is proposed, and quality level selection, sidelink sender/receiver selection, and transmission resource allocation are optimized to maximize the total utility of all users under the bandwidth constraints as well as the quality smoothness constraints for multiquality tiles.



Device-to-device assisted two-stage cooperative multicast with optimal resource utilization

The D2D assisted cooperative multicast (CM) is investigated in a new scenario, where a large number multicast recipients are densely distributed within a small area (called a D1D cluster), and a new relay selection scheme named nearest center protocol (NCP) is proposed.

Joint Multicast Beamforming and Antenna Selection

Careful simulations indicate that the proposed algorithm significantly reduces the number of antennas required to meet prescribed service levels, at relatively small excess transmission power, and its performance is close to that attained by exhaustive search, at far lower complexity.

Fundamental limits and scaling behavior of cooperative multicasting in wireless networks

A framework for analyzing capacity gains from user cooperation in slow-fading wireless networks when the number of nodes (network size) is large is developed and the notion of a network "scaling exponent" to quantify the rate of decay of error probability with network size as a function of the targeted fraction of the capacity is introduced.

Device-to-Device Aided Multicasting

We consider a device-to-device (D2D) aided multicast channel, where a transmitter wishes to convey a common message to many receivers and these receivers cooperate with each other. We propose a

A cooperative multicast scheduling scheme for multimedia services in IEEE 802.16 networks

By exploiting the multi-channel diversity across different multicast groups and user cooperation among group members, the proposed scheme can achieve higher throughput than existing multicast schemes, for subscriber stations in both good and bad channel conditions.

A Survey on Device-to-Device Communication in Cellular Networks

This paper provides a taxonomy based on the D2D communicating spectrum and review the available literature extensively under the proposed taxonomy to provide new insights into the over-explored and under- Explored areas that lead to identify open research problems of D1D communications in cellular networks.

On the Broadcast Capacity of Wireless Networks With Cooperative Relays

A multistage cooperative broadcasting scheme, which achieves Θ(1) broadcast rate for the high-density extended networks with pathloss channel model is proposed, which quantifies the gains obtained due to cooperation compared to multihop noncooperative broadcasting, which has a maximum rate that scales as Θ (1) for high- density and δ(1/(log f(N)α/2) for extended networks.
