  title={NB-IoT via LEO satellites: An efficient resource allocation strategy for uplink data transmission},
  author={Oltjon Kodheli and Nicola Maturo and Symeon Chatzinotas and Stefano Andrenacci and Frank Zimmer},
In this paper, we focus on the use of Low-Eart Orbit (LEO) satellites providing the Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) connectivity to the on-ground user equipments (UEs). Conventional resource allocation algorithms for the NBIoT systems are particularly designed for terrestrial infrastructures, where devices are under the coverage of a specific base station and the whole system varies very slowly in time. The existing methods in the literature cannot be applied over LEO satellite-based NB… Expand


Resource Allocation Approach for Differential Doppler Reduction in NB-IoT over LEO Satellite

Radio Resource Management Scheme in NB-IoT Systems
An interference aware resource allocation for NB-IoT is proposed by formulating the rate maximization problem considering the overhead of control channels, time offset, and repetition factor and it is shown through the simulation results that the cooperative scheme provides up to 8% rate improvement and 17% energy reduction as compared with the non-cooperative scheme.

Satellite-enabled LTE systems in LEO constellations
Focusing on the latter, the impact of large delays and Doppler shifts on LTE PHY/MAC procedures is discussed and assessed and it will be shown that, while carrier spacings, Random Access, and RN attach procedures do not pose specific issues, HARQ requires substantial modifications. Expand
