     View Summary

    In this article, the transmission performance of a circle polarization shift keying (CPolSK)-based free space optical (FSO) system working in space-to-ground channel is analyzed. Formulas describing the optical polarization distortion caused by the atmospheric turbulence and the communication qualities in terms of signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR), bit-error-ratio (BER) and outage probability of the proposed system are derived. Based on the Stokes parameters data measured by a Japanese optical communication satellite, we evaluate the space-to-ground FSO link and simulate the system performance under a varying regime of turbulence strength. The proposed system provides a more efficient way to compensate scintillation effects in a comparison with the on-off-keying (OOK)-based FSO system. These results are useful to the designing and evaluating of a deep space FSO communication system.

    Di Zhang, Yuanwei Liu, Zhiguo Ding, Zhenyu Zhou, Arumugam Nallanathan, Takuro Sato

    IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS   65 ( 11 ) 4777 - 4790  2017.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The non-regenerative massive multi-input-multi-output (MIMO) non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) relay systems are introduced in this paper. The NOMA is invoked with a superposition coding technique at the transmitter and successive interference cancellation (SIC) technique at the receiver. In addition, a maximum mean square error-SIC receiver design is adopted. With the aid of deterministic equivalent and matrix analysis tools, a closed-form expression of the signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) is derived. To characterize the performance of the considered systems, closed-form expressions of the capacity and sum rate are further obtained based on the derived SINR expression. Insights from the derived analytical results demonstrate that the ratio between the transmitter antenna number and the relay number is a dominate factor of the system performance. Afterward, the correctness of the derived expressions are verified by the Monte Carlo simulations with numerical results. Simulation results also illustrate that: 1) the transmitter antenna, averaged power value, and user number display the positive correlations on the capacity and sum rate performances, whereas the relay number displays a negative correlation on the performance and 2) the combined massive-MIMO-NOMA scheme is capable of achieving higher capacity performance compared with the conventional MIMO-NOMA, relay-assisted NOMA, and massive-MIMO orthogonal multiple access (OMA) scheme.

  • Localization in wireless sensor networks: A survey on algorithms, measurement techniques, applications and challenges

    Anup Kumar Paul, Takuro Sato

    Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks   6 ( 4 )  2017.10

     View Summary

    Localization is an important aspect in the field of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) that has developed significant research interest among academia and research community. Wireless sensor network is formed by a large number of tiny, low energy, limited processing capability and low-cost sensors that communicate with each other in ad-hoc fashion. The task of determining physical coordinates of sensor nodes in WSNs is known as localization or positioning and is a key factor in today’s communication systems to estimate the place of origin of events. As the requirement of the positioning accuracy for different applications varies, different localization methods are used in different applications and there are several challenges in some special scenarios such as forest fire detection. In this paper, we survey different measurement techniques and strategies for range based and range free localization with an emphasis on the latter. Further, we discuss different localization-based applications, where the estimation of the location information is crucial. Finally, a comprehensive discussion of the challenges such as accuracy, cost, complexity, and scalability are given.

    Jairo López, Takuro Sato

    IEICE Transactions on Communications   E100B ( 10 ) 1827 - 1836  2017.10

     View Summary

    In order to support seamless mobility in the Information- Centric Networking (ICN) Architecture we propose the Named-Node Network Architecture (3NA). 3NA introduces two independent namespaces to ICN, the 3N namespace used to uniquely identify nodes within a network and the Point of Attachment (PoA) namespace to identify a node's PoA to the network. The mappings between the two namespaces, along with all the necessary mechanisms to keep the mappings updated over time, are used when routing ICN packets to improve delay and the goodput when either the producer or the consumer are mobile. To support simultaneous producer and consumer mobility, we expand on the 3NA by adding a new Protocol Data Unit (PDU), the DU PDU. The DU PDU permits the encapsulation of ICN packets in a header that has source and destination name fields which belong to 3NA's 3N namespace. The new PDU permits seamless connectivity as long as 3NA's point of attachment signaling is strictly followed. We demonstrate the performance of the DU PDU against our previous defined communication methods and Named Data Networking's (NDN) Smart Flooding forwarding strategy using our open source nnnSIM module for the ns-3 framework. The new PDU outperforms all existing alternatives when the producer or both consumer and provider are mobile, obtaining overall lower mean network delay and higher median goodput.

  • Capacity Analysis of NOMA With mmWave Massive MIMO Systems

    Di Zhang, Zhenyu Zhou, Chen Xu, Yan Zhang, Jonathan Rodriguez, Takuro Sato

    IEEE JOURNAL ON SELECTED AREAS IN COMMUNICATIONS   35 ( 7 ) 1606 - 1618  2017.07  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), millimeter wave (mmWave), and massive multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) have been emerging as key technologies for fifth generation mobile communications. However, less studies have been done on combining the three technologies into the converged systems. In addition, how many capacity improvements can be achieved via this combination remains unclear. In this paper, we provide an in-depth capacity analysis for the integrated NOMA-mmWave-massive-MIMO systems. First, a simplified mmWave channel model is introduced by extending the uniform random single-path model with angle of arrival. Afterward, we divide the capacity analysis into the low signal to noise ratio (SNR) and high-SNR regimes based on the dominant factors of signal to interference plus noise ratio. In the noise-dominated low-SNR regime, the capacity analysis is derived by the deterministic equivalent method with the Stieltjes-Shannon transform. In contrast, the statistic and eigenvalue distribution tools are invoked for the capacity analysis in the interference-dominated high-SNR regime. The exact capacity expression and the low-complexity asymptotic capacity expression are derived based on the probability distribution function of the channel eigenvalue. Finally, simulation results validate the theoretical analysis and demonstrate that significant capacity improvements can be achieved by the integrated NOMA-mmWave-massive-MIMO systems.

  • A key technology for standardizing outdoor optical wireless communications

    Yuwei Su, Takuro Sato

    ICT Express   3 ( 2 ) 62 - 66  2017.06

     View Summary

    In this paper, we introduce a key technology, polarization modulation (PM), which should be taken into account when standardizing outdoor optical wireless communications (OWC), also known as free-space optical communications (FSO). We analyze the distortion of the polarization state when a laser beam propagates through the atmospheric channel. The floating range of the optical polarization was estimated and the necessity of researching the proposed technology was discussed. Moreover, we conducted a comparison between the PM-based FSO system and intensity modulation-based FSO system. The conclusions will be helpful in establishing the FSO standard architectures.

  • Node Name Routing in Information-Centric Ad-Hoc Network

    Zheng Wen, Di Zhang, Keping Yu, Takuro Sato

    IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRONICS COMMUNICATIONS AND COMPUTER SCIENCES   E100A ( 2 ) 680 - 687  2017.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    We propose the node name routing (NNR) strategy for information-centric ad-hoc networks based on the named-node networking (3N). This strategy is especially valuable for use in disaster areas because, when the Internet is out of service during a disaster, our strategy can be used to set up a self-organizing network via cell phones or other terminal devices that have a sharing ability, and it does not rely on a base station (BS) or similar providers. Our proposed strategy can solve the multiple-name problem that has arisen in prior 3N proposals, as well as the dead loop problems in both 3N ad-hoc networks and TCP/IP ad-hoc networks. To evaluate the NNR strategy, it is compared with the optimized link state routing protocol (OLSR) and the dynamic source routing (DSR) strategy. Computer-based comprehensive simulations showed that our NNR proposal exhibits a better performance in this environment when all of the users are moving randomly. We further observed that with a growing number of users, our NNR protocol performs better in terms of packet delivery, routing cost, etc.

    2016 IEEE Globecom Workshops, GC Wkshps 2016 - Proceedings    2017.02  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2016 IEEE.Urban surveillance systems are being applied in a rapid pace with mature but inefficient solutions. The inefficiency is revealed with two aspects, too concentrated bandwidth and processing requirement. To solve this problem, we proposed a content oriented surveillance system based on Information-Centric Network. However, we can't simply replace TCP/IP streaming structure with named contents streaming structure because it can't improve the surveillance system's efficiency enough. In this paper, we took the ICN network's profits even further with the named contents. Instead of streaming live video to the central data center and processing multiple data stream in the same time, we have designed the nodes to process the captured raw data and produce objective contents for the central data center. With the extremely size difference in raw data and actual valued contents from it, we could apply the method in investigating area people traffic conditions and even in disaster and anti-terrorism scenarios. There was a field experiment performed to evaluate tourists' densities and dressing habits during winter season of March. The experiment expressed the benefits of our system and compared our method with traditional surveillance systems in saving network bandwidth and functionalities.

    In order to address the energy issue and enhance the feasibility of Information-Centric Networking (ICN) in the case of access networks, this research proposes a novel Green ICN design which can adapt power consumption of network devices to their optimized real-time link-utilizations based on content popularity levels. We utilize dynamic ALR (Adaptive Link Rate) based scheme for content nodes to provide efficient content delivery as a realistic approach for the economically viable green network. We also develop a game-theoretical model to study the interaction between an ISP and a network equipment company in the context of green networking. Specifically, we present the system concept and some demonstration results of game-based Green ICN model to analyze the economic incentives of players. Moreover, we discuss ICN deployment and standardization challenges, then show that the proposal is robust, easy to deploy and practically relevant for the network players.

     View Summary

    Besides the prior study of energy efficiency (EE) that focuses on single component (antenna, radio frequency (RF) chain, circuit, etc.), or limited to one base station (BS) area, in this paper, EE is integrated, investigated with various components (antenna, RF chain, circuit, coverage area) considering in, based on an optimized system model. That is, one optimized multi-BS system model is introduced beforehand with the cloud radio access network (C-RAN) for easier deployment of the selecting/sleeping mechanism. In addition, the system EE is described by an optimization problem while taking more component factors into consideration. While solving, this integrated optimization problem in all time intervals of all BS areas is proved to be equal to an optimization problem of each single BS area within each single time interval. After that, the integrated optimization solution is obtained while adding up the single-BS-single-interval optimization solutions, whereas the later solution is addressed by an offline decision method plus a convex optimization strategy. Observation from the numerical results demonstrates that the antenna power consumption is the dominant factor of the power consumption, which therefore, the dominant factor of EE performance.

     View Summary

    To further enhance the energy efficiency (EE) performance of fifth generation (5G) Internet of Things systems, an integrated structure is proposed in this paper. That is, other than prior studies that separately study the wireless and wired parts, the wireless and wired parts are holistically combined together to comprehensively optimize the EE of the whole system. The integrated system structure is introduced beforehand with the proposed unified control center components for better deployment of the select-and-sleep mechanism. In addition, in the wireless part, one cellular partition zooming (CPZ) mechanism is proposed. In contrast, in the wired part, a precaching mechanism is introduced. With these proposals, the proposed system EE performance is investigated. Comprehensive computer-based simulation results demonstrate that the proposed schemes display better EE performance. This is due to the fact that system power consumption is further reduced with these schemes as compared to the prior work.

     View Summary

    In order to provide high-quality and highly reliable video delivery services for mobile users, especially train passengers, we propose a proactive content caching scheme that uses transportation systems. In our system, we place content servers with cache capability [e.g., content centric networking/named data networking (CCN/NDN)] in every train and station. Video segments encapsulated by MPEG-Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP (MPEG-DASH) are distributed and pre-cached by the station servers before the trains arrive at the stations. The trains receive content via high-speed wireless transport, such as wireless LANs or millimeter waves, when they stop at the stations. We developed prototype systems based on hypertext transfer protocol and CCN/NDN protocol, evaluate their performance through two field experiments that uses actual trains, and compare with traditional video streaming over cellular networks. Such evaluations indicate that our system can achieve high-quality video delivery without interruption for up to 50 users simultaneously.

  • A Novel Energy Efficient Object Detection and Image Transmission Approach for Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks

    Yasar Abbas Ur Rehman, Muhammad Tariq, Takuro Sato

    IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL   16 ( 15 ) 5942 - 5949  2016.08  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Energy efficient object detection and image transmission are one of the key issues in wireless multimedia sensor networks (WMSN). Recent approaches in the WMSN propose in-node object detection and tracking algorithms. However, a little effort has been made to effectively detect object presence and absence in images in the WMSN. Since object detection has a direct relation with image transmission, therefore effective object detection algorithm would provide a reduction in the false transmission of image information. In this paper, a novel object presence model and an image transmission scheme are proposed for the WMSN. This scheme uses the transmission of image segments rather than a complete image. It guarantees in-node energy conservation and minimal image content transmission to the sink node. The proposed scheme is evaluated based on in-node energy consumption and reconstructed image peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR). Simulation results show that the proposed approach saves 95% of the node energy with the received image PSNR of 46 dB as compared with other state-of-the- art approaches.

This research proposes a novel proactive-caching technique in ICN providing the robust and effective content delivery to the mobile nodes (commuters) for transportation system and fitting numerous ICN mobility scenarios of transportation system thanks to our "smart scheduler". We also propose a wireless ICN architecture which can adapt the power consumption of network nodes to the actual values of their optimized utilizations for greening the transportation communication network. Moreover, we identify that there are currently various ICN-based models and emphasize the need of an official international standard for wireless communication in general and transportation system in particular. Then by evaluating our proposal, we show that our proposal is a promising and feasible contribution for the ITU standardization process of Data Aware Networking (DAN) by integrating Green networking into DAN to combine the benefits of innovated rate-adaptivity and proactive-caching based schemes for achieving highly scalable, reliable and energy-efficient network performance in future transportation Information-centric communication system with data-awareness.

    A Pseudo Double Scattering Channel (PDSC) Matrix assumption is proposed here for downlink Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access (NOMA) within massive Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO) systems. Afterwards, outage probability analysis of such a system is investigated. That is, with the aid of random matrix and statistics theories, the Cumulative Probability Distribution (CDF) and also the outage probability performance are addressed. After that, the mathematics derivations obtained here are verified through numerical simulation results, wherein we further find out that with antenna number increasing, the system outage probability performance is reduced.

     View Summary

    Based on the Cloud-Radio Access Network (C-RAN) structure and massive Multi-Input Multi-Output (MIMO), we propose one comprehensive system model and give the Energy Efficiency (EE) analysis of this system. The C-RAN structure is amended for better antenna control in massive MIMO based C-RAN system model. Furthermore, system EE optimization problem is modeled from a comprehensive way, and its solution is addressed with a convex optimization method plus an offline decision. In EE analysis, apart from the prior literature, Carrier Capacity (CC), antenna, Radio-Frequency (RF) chain, machine room and also the electron circuits are integrally taken into consideration. A positive correlation is observed between CC and the EE performance prior to the optimal value, after this optimal value, further increase CC has little help to EE enhancement.

     View Summary

    This paper presents a novel model of heterodyne-detected optical code-division multiple-access (OCDMA) systems employing polarization shift keying (PolSK) modulation over a free-space optical (FSO) turbulence channel. In this article, a new transceiver configuration and detailed analytical model for the proposed system are provided and discussed, taking into consideration the potential of heterodyne detection on mitigating the impact of turbulence-induced irradiance fluctuation on the performance of the proposed system under the gamma-gamma turbulence channel. Furthermore, we derived the closed-form expressions for the system error probability and outage probability, respectively. We determine the advantages of the proposed modeling by performing a comparison with a direct detection scheme obtained from an evaluation of link performance under the same environment conditions. The presented work also shows the most significant impact factor that degrades the performance of the proposed system and indicates that the proposed approach offers an optimum link performance compared to conventional cases.

     View Summary

    We studied the physical properties of hollandite titanates, BaxTi8O16+delta, which have double chains of edge-sharing TiO6 octahedra with d electrons in the t(2g) states. We found that there is an electronic phase transition at similar to 220 K, at which various properties exhibit anomalies. This phase transition is characterized by a modulation in the TiO6 chains and a spectral weight transfer of over 2 eV in the optical conductivity spectrum, which are presumably caused by charge and orbital ordering of the Ti t(2g) electrons.

    Information Centric Networking (ICN) had merits in terms of mobility, security, power consumption and network traffic. When a large-scale disaster occurred, the current communication system might be fragile and the server based network service might be unavailable due to the damages, network congestions, and power failure, etc. In this paper, we proposed an ICN based Disaster Information Sharing Service (DISS) [1], [2] system. DISS could provide robust information sharing service. Users could publish disaster information as a content message with the help of our DISS. In addition, by utilizing DISS's message naming strategy, users could retrieve disaster information even without a server connection. The ICN based DISS could reduce the probability of network congestion when a large number of simultaneous connections occurring. It could provide server-less service in poor network condition. DISS allows users retrieve disaster information from terminals or ICN nodes. During disasters, sharing information timely and effective could protect people from disaster, ensure people's safety.

     View Summary

    Despite the numerous benefits brought by device-to-device (D2D) communications, the introduction of D2D into cellular networks poses many new challenges in the resource allocation design because of the co-channel interference caused by spectrum reuse and limited battery life of user equipment's (UEs). Most of the previous studies mainly focus on how to maximise the spectral efficiency and ignore the energy consumption of UEs. In this study, the authors study how to maximise each UE's Energy Efficiency (EE) in an interference-limited environment subject to its specific quality of service and maximum transmission power constraints. The authors model the resource allocation problem as a non-cooperative game, in which each player is self-interested and wants to maximise its own EE. A distributed interference-aware energy-efficient resource allocation algorithm is proposed by exploiting the properties of the nonlinear fractional programming. The authors prove that the optimal solution obtained by the proposed algorithm is the Nash equilibrium of the non-cooperative game. The authors also analyse the tradeoff between EE and SE and derive closed-form expressions for EE and SE gaps.

    In order to provide the robust and energy-efficiency contents delivery to the mobile terminals in Information Centric Networking (ICN), this paper proposes a dynamic proactive-scheme and evaluates its performance as an effective mechanism for green mobility in ICN. In our scheme, when a mobile node expresses an Interest for a content then neighbor Aggregation Nodes (possible future points of attachment) also generate the "fake interest" for this content to the Content Provider. As a result, after the handoff, when the mobile node re-issues the same interest, the desired content can be found en-route and can be retrieved immediately. To diminish the ICN energy consumption by utilizing this scheme (the interest needs not to travel to the Content Server), we design different operating modes for the server based on the interest traffic. We verify the effectiveness and reliability of our proposed scheme by simulating the model with ndnSIM.

Particularly, we take the scenario of cellular communication industry and as an evolutionary technology we take CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) as a case study. Game theory is chosen as a tool for analysis of the business decision of stakeholder of an innovative technology. CDMA' s spread spectrum approach was unique. However, the good technology doesn' t always win out. A good example is VHS ; which is successful and won out the market though technically inferior to Betamax. For the case of CDMA, we explain the case of good technological innovation, strategic management by the innovator and the role of standardization as a pre-requisite to win the market. We designed the game based on the scenario while a technology licensor (Qualcomm) simultaneously works as a product manufacturer and make a role overlapping with the licensee (Motorola, Nokia, Ericson etc) . We also give a brief mathematical analysis with the Stackelberg leadership Game Model for the Qualcomm' s Royalty and Chip business.

     View Summary

    Massive Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (Massive MIMO) has been realized as a promising technology element for 5G wireless mobile communications, in which Spectral Efficiency (SE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) are two critical issues. Prior estimates have indicated that 57% energy consumption of cellular system comes from the operator, mostly used to feed the base station (BS). Yet previously, the User Equipment (UE) is focused on while studying the EE issue instead of BS. In this case, in this paper, an EE scheme that focuses on the optimization of BS energy consumption is proposed. Apart from the previous studies, which divides the coverage area by circuit section, the coverage area is divided by fan section with the help of Propagation theory for zoom in or zoom out. In the proposal, transmission model and parameters related to EE is deduced first. Afterwards, the Cellular Partition Zooming (CPZ) scheme is proposed where the BS can zoom in to maintain the coverage area or zoom out to save the energy. Comprehensive simulation results demonstrate that CPZ presents better EE performance with negligible impact on the transmission rate.

  • Exploiting Correlation for MMSE Channel Estimation in Massive MIMO Systems with RF-Impairments

    Semaganga Frank, Battulga Davaasambu, Takuro Sato

    2015 IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER AND COMMUNICATIONS (ICCC)     324 - 328  2015  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The Large Scale Antenna System is expected to bring significant improvements to overall Communication System Performance. However the use of so many antennas in Massive Multiple Inputs Multiple Outputs (Massive MIMO) architectures highlights the cost implication of the technology. It is therefore possible that Massive MIMO may be deployed using low cost equipment to avoid HUGE implementation costs. The use of Low Cost Equipment will results into significant Radio Frequency Impairments (RF-Impairments) such as Phase Noise, IQ Imbalance and Nonlinearities, which will affect the overall system performance. Among other aspects channel estimations will also be affected since the signal used for these estimations will be affected by the RF-Impairments. This paper analyzes a way to exploit correlation during Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) Channel Estimation of a Massive MIMO System in presence of aggregated RF-Impairments (i.e. combined effects of the impairments). Specifically it derived the statistical distribution of the equivalent aggregated error/noise term using statistical identities and uses the derived term to obtain temporal channel estimation error and consequently the correlation matrix necessary to minimizes the channel Mean Square Error (MSE) of the channel estimate.

Content centric network as a new network which can push relevant content where needed can use its cache and repository characteristic to reduce congestion and latency in backbone network. In disaster scenario, poor network environment will cause communication obstruction; higher demand for information delivery than usual from both inside and outside of the disaster area will bring great pressure on backbone network. CCN with repositories of pre-fetched contents will utilize its robustness and high performance in cache hit and hop distance to help releasing congestion and throughput pressure in backbone network.

To achieve this, we propose a proactive content caching scheme utilizing transportation systems, especially trains. In our system, we place content servers with CCN capability to every train and station. Segments of video contents are pre-cached by the station servers before trains arrive at stations. Trains receive the contents via high-speed wireless transport while they stop at the stations. We develop a prototype system based on IP and CCN Hybrid protocols. We evaluate its performance by field experiment and compare with traditional CDN scenarios using cellular networks. Evaluations conclude that our system can achieve high-speed and high-reliable video delivery without freezing.

     View Summary

    In Japan a feed-in tariff scheme has promoted the utilization of photovoltaic power generators in combination with electric batteries. Although many researchers have assessed the operations of grid-connected photovoltaic systems with electric batteries, little attention has been paid to the impact of the electric batteries' degradation characteristics. This paper presents an evaluation of the operation of a grid-connected photovoltaic/electric battery system in a house from energy saving and economy viewpoints. We constructed a long-term operational optimization model considering the degradation characteristics of the electric battery. This model contains two objective functions: energy saving and operating cost. We set a scenario of power rate and photovoltaic/battery system configurations. In order to reveal the optimal operational strategy of the photovoltaic/battery system, the multi-objective optimization problem was solved. As a result, pareto optimal solutions were obtained, and trade-off relationships between economy and energy saving are presented. In this study, the utilization of the grid-connected photovoltaic system with an electric battery was expected to be effective in an energy saving priority operation.

  • CCN-AMI: Performance evaluation of content-centric networking approach for advanced metering infrastructure in smart grid

    Yu, Keping, Zhu, Li, Wen, Zheng, Mohammad, Arifuzzaman, Zhou, Zhenyu, Sato, Takuro

    2014 IEEE International Workshop on Applied Measurements for Power Systems, AMPS 2014 - Proceedings     121 - 126  2014.01  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2014 IEEE. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), as the totality of systems and networks to measure, collect, store, analyze, and use energy usage data, is supposed to the key component that should be preferentially constructed for smart grid. In the meanwhile, content-centric networking (CCN) is perceived as a promising approach where the content itself becomes the core of communication instead of the address or location in the future internet research. Based on its caching advantage, it is widely believed that CCN can effectively reduce the AMI network bandwidth. This paper aims to apply the CCN approach on AMI system, which is called CCN-AMI. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first attempt to distribute contents or requests based on CCN in AMI system. Moreover, a simulation-based performance evaluation is employed to evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed CCN-AMI approach in traffic control for developing AMI system in smart grid.

     View Summary

    The contributions of this paper are twofold. Firstly, we analyze the decision making problem of caching contents by the network players of Information Centric Networking (ICN) from a game theoretic perspective. We also mention a possible content distribution model for ICN. By our proposed game theory, different network players can find the optimality taking into consideration which benefits them with optimum revenue. Secondly, we present a solution for Live Streaming Media broadcast in ICN and analyze the economic part with a decision tree. We believe, our paper clearly shows the economic incentives for major network players which can stand as a motivation to achieve the faster accommodation of ICN architecture. Besides, we identify some standardization issue in ICN architecture and we emphasize on the need for a common standard for content routers (CR) so that as a node in the ICN, CR ensure scalable content delivery as well as its functionalities match with the Internet open standard philosophy. © 2014 ITU.

  • Game theory based hybrid access for macrocell-edge users in a macro-femto network

    Li, Yanwei, Zhou, Zhenyu, Zhou, Zhenyu, Nguyen, Nam, Sato, Takuro

    IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference    2013.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The extensive deployment of femtocells introduces co-channel interference to the macro cell-edge users (MCEUs), which degrades the throughput improvement of the total network. In this paper, we consider the scenario in which the femtocell base station (FBS) allows the hybrid access of MCEUs on the condition that the MCEUs rent the power resource from it. However, the FBS is power limited. If almost all of its power is used to serve the MCEUs and its original femtocell users (FUEs), when newly authoritized FUEs are switched on, there will be little power left to serve these newly authoritized FUEs. In this situation, the FBS can select one MCEU as a relay to coordinate its information transmission to the FUE. To reward the cooperation of the MCEUs, the FBS will agree to support the service of MCEUs without charging. Stackelberg game is used to find the optimal power and price value for this procedure. An MCEU relay selection criterion is proposed for the FBS. The optimal power that the MCEU can obtain from the FBS and the power that the MCEU can obtain from the FBS and the power that the MCEU can share with the FUEs are obtained. The simulation results show that the throughputs of both the FUEs and the MCEUs are improved. © 2013 IEEE.

  • Study on CCN Based Disaster System

    Yu Na, Mohammad Arifuzzanlan, Yu Keping, Sato Takuro

    IEICE technical report   113 ( 360 ) 1 - 6  2013.12

     View Summary

    For sending and receiving of disaster information during a disaster time, huge access is carried out on the network in a short period of time. Since the communication processing capability is insufficient to respond to the service dramatically and given that communication interruption occurred, it's required to construct an integrated network which can strengthen disaster tolerance. In this study, in order to reduce the traffic of the entire network, we consider cache on the routers by using s content centric network. Further, we propose a cache decision policy considering path capacity and content popularity in order to improve the cache hit rate.

  • An Intelligent Hybrid MAC With Traffic-Differentiation-Based QoS for Wireless Sensor Networks

    Mohammad Arifuzzaman, Mitsuji Matsumoto, Takuro Sato

    IEEE SENSORS JOURNAL   13 ( 6 ) 2391 - 2399  2013.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In this paper, we present the Intelligent Hybrid MAC (IH-MAC), a novel low power with quality of service guaranteed medium access control protocol for wireless sensor networks (WSNs). The IH-MAC achieves high energy efficiency under wide range of traffic load. It ensures shorter latency to critical and delay-sensitive packets. The IH-MAC protocol achieves high channel utilization during high traffic load without compromising energy efficiency. The IH-MAC does it by using the strength of CSMA and TDMA approach with intelligence. The novel idea behind the IH-MAC is that it uses both the broadcast scheduling and link scheduling. Depending on the network loads, the IH-MAC protocol dynamically switches from broadcast scheduling to link scheduling and vice versa in order to achieve better efficiency. The scheduling is done in the IH-MAC with a novel decentralized approach where the nodes locally use the clock arithmetic to find the time slot, allocated for it. Furthermore, the IH-MAC uses Request-To-Send, Clear-To-send handshakes with methods for adapting the transmit power to the minimum level necessary to reach the intended neighbor. Thus, the IH-MAC reduces energy consumption by suitably varying the transmit power. The IH-MAC also uses the concept of parallel transmission that further reduces delay. The analytical and simulation results corroborate the theoretical idea, and show the efficiency of our proposed protocol.

    This paper presents an information sharing system by using modern concept of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) approach. Disaster in concentrated metropolitan area causes heavy loss of human life and severe damage to property. Once a disaster occurs, victims need to receive information of discrete incidents in real time, while rescuers outside the damaged area providing services such as shelter locations need more aggregated information provided less frequently. Since the tremendous growth in the demand of smart phones, the Web service of our disaster management system could also provide to smart phone. In this paper, we describe the design of the information sharing system while mobile users could retrieve the current location through wireless positioning technology and upload disaster related information to the system, and rescuers outside the damaged region confirm these data on the website to assess further rescue operations.

  • A cluster-based consensus algorithm in a wireless sensor network

    Yanwei Li, Zhenyu Zhou, Takuro Sato

    International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks   2013  2013

     View Summary

    In this paper, we propose an average connectivity degree cluster (ACDC) scheme gossip algorithm to improve the convergence speed and the accuracy of the consensus, when a common decision is needed for a certain phenomenon in a distributed network. We analyze the effects of the initial value, the network topology (regular and irregular), and the number of clusters on the algorithm convergence rate as well as the accuracy of the value when reaching consensus. A utility function is developed based on two parameters, iteration and relative error, to help the network designers make an optimal decision based on their requirements. An irregular sensor model which is based on the degree of irregular (DOI) radius is introduced to evaluate the robustness of the algorithm. The simulation results demonstrate that for any initial value and network topology, the proposed ACDC gossip algorithm can yield results that are 50% closer to the real average value than the referenced standard gossip and grid cluster gossip algorithms. With different DOI values, our ACDC gossip algorithm can still reach lower relative error compared with other gossip algorithms, which demonstrates that our algorithm is robust enough to be executed in the network. © 2013 Yanwei Li et al.

    The involvement of smart grid in home and building automation systems has led to the development of diverse standards for interoperable products to control appliances, lighting, energy management and security. Smart grid enables a user to control the energy usage according to the price and demand. These standards have been developed in parallel by different organizations, which are either open or proprietary. It is necessary to arrange these standards in such a way that it is easier for potential readers to easily understand and select a suitable standard according to their functionalities without going into the depth of each standard. In this paper, we review the main smart grid standards proposed by different organizations for home and building automation in terms of different function fields. In addition, we evaluate the scope of interoperability, benefits and drawbacks of the standard. © 2012 IEEE.

    We propose a resource allocation method which guarantees a throughput of each mobile station (MS) in a Base Station (BS) cooperated MIMO. A previously proposed method for guaranteeing MS throughputs allocates resource to MSs which can not guarantee throughput with a bad channel quality. Our method excludes MSs with a bad channel quality and allocates resource to the other MSs with a good channel quality. The simulation result showed our method guaranteed more MSs' throughput and achieved a higher system throughput than the previous method.

  • An Adaptive Blind Single Antenna Interference Cancellation Algorithm for 4G LTE Systems

     View Summary

    In previous works, a blind single antenna interference cancellation (SAIC) algorithm named least mean squareblind joint maximum likelihood sequence estimation (LMS-BJMLSE) has been proposed for OFDM systems. It is blind with respect to interference and is able to cancel interference by only one receive antenna. However, LMS-BJMLSE requires a long training sequence (TS) for channel estimation, which greatly reduces the transmission efficiency. Furthermore, since TS is not available in 4G LTE systems, LMS-BJMLSE can not be applied directly. In this paper, in order to solve this problem, a SINR and symbol position weight adaptive algorithm is proposed, and named as adaptive LMS-BJMLSE (ALMS-BJMLSE). For each slot, ALMS-BJMLSE dynamically decides the number of antennas used for interference cancellation and adjusts the step size, based on estimated SINR conditions and symbol position weight. Simulation results demonstrate that ALMS-BJMLSE achieves a much better balance between performance and transmission efficiency compared to the conventional LMS-BJMLSE algorithm, and can be applied for 4G LTE systems.

    This paper proposes a study of performances of the Orthogonal Four Single Sideband elements modulation previously proposed by Ohta [1]. Realistic parameters such as receiver noise and various channel effects are introduced in the derivation of the modulation. Transmission of two QPSK signals multiplexed in one 4-SSB (Single Sideband) signal over OFDM (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) is considered and a demodulation process exploiting a turbo equalizer is presented. Computer simulations are used to verify the performances of the proposed modulation scheme. Results show that 4-SSB QPSK signal over OFDM can achieve performances close to QPSK-OFDM scheme while carrying twice more information, provided perfect channel equalization. However, we also show that in a non-ideal equalization case, performances of 4-SSB QPSK OFDM become highly sensitive to channel effects. © 2011 IEEE.

     View Summary

    Energy efficient data gathering is a common but critical operation in many applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Innovative energy efficient schemes that improve the sensor network lifetime are highly desirable. One of the energy efficient schemes in sensor network is clustering, which is an effective topology control strategy to increase network scalability and lifetime. In this paper we propose effective data gathering and energy efficient clustering scheme (EDGE) which ensures the equal distribution of cluster head responsibility among the sensor nodes and better suits the periodic data gathering applications. Our approach selects cluster head based on three metrics: sensor nodes current energy level, distance to base station and LEACH's probabilistic approach. We also propose two hop communication by selecting one gateway node. We simulate EDGE with two hop communication and without two hop communication. Simulation results shows that our approach significantly improve the network lifetime over Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy (LEACH), LEACH-Centralized (LEACH-C) and Energy-LEACH (E-LEACH) algorithm especially when the first node runs out of energy. © 2011 National Institute of Inform.

    The involvement of IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) in diverse applications has made the realistic analysis of sensor power dissipation in distributed network environments an essential research issue. In this paper, we propose and thoroughly analyze a power dissipation model for Carrier Sense Multiple Access/Collision Avoidance (CSMA/CA) based IEEE 802.15.4 distributed multi-hop WSNs. Our model takes the loss rate of frames, neighbor sensors density in communication range of a sensor, number of hops, distance of source to the sink, and density of the network into account. We evaluate the impact of these factors on overall power dissipation. We also perform comprehensive analysis of overheads caused by message routing through multi-hop distributed networks. We validate our proposed model through Monte Carlo simulations. Results show that our power dissipation model is more realistic compared to other proposed models in terms of accuracy and multiplicity of the environments.

     View Summary

    With Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) involving in diverse applications, the realistic analysis of energy consumption of a sensor node in an error-prone network environment is emerging as an elementary research issue. In this paper, we introduce a Distributed Communication Model (DCM) that can accurately determine the energy consumption through data communication from source to destination in error-prone network environments. The energy consumption is affected with the quality of link, which is characterized by symmetry, directivity, instability, and irregularity of the communication range of a sensor node. Due to weak communication links, significant packet loss occurs that affects the overall energy consumption. While other models unable to determine energy consumption due to lossy links in error-prone and unstable network environments, DCM can accurately estimate the energy consumption in such situations. We also perform comprehensive analysis of overheads caused by data propagation through multi-hop distributed networks. We validate DCM through both simulations and experiments using MICAz motes. Similarity of the results from energy consumption analysis with both simulations and experimentations shows that DCM is realistic, compared to other models in terms of accuracy and diversity of the environments.

  • Error Probability Bounds Analysis of JMLSE Based Interference Cancellation Algorithms for MQAM-OFDM Systems

    IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS   E94B ( 7 ) 2032 - 2042  2011.07  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Due to the reuse factor reduction, the same frequencies are reused in adjacent neighboring cells, which causes an attendant increase in co-channel interference (CCI). CCI has already become the limiting factor in the performance of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based cellular systems. Joint maximum likelihood sequence estimation (JMLSE) based interference cancellation algorithms have been under intense research. However, despite the fact that the error probability of JMLSE is critical for analyzing the performance, to the best of our knowledge, the mathematical expression has not been derived for MQAM-OFDM yet. Direct computation of the error probability involves integrating a multi-dimensional Gaussian distribution that has no closed-form solution. Therefore, an alternative way is to upper and lower bound the error probability with computable quantities. In this paper, firstly, both the upper and the conventional lower error probability bounds of JMLSE are derived for MQAM-OFDM systems based on a genie-aided receiver. Secondly, in order to reduce the gap between the conventional lower bound and the simulation results, a tighter lower bound is derived by replacing the genie with a less generous one. Thirdly, those derived error probability bounds are generalized to the receiver diversity scheme. These error probability bounds are important new analytical results that can be used to provide rapid and accurate estimation of the BER performance over any MQAM scheme and an arbitrary number of interferers and receive antennas.

    IEICE TRANSACTIONS ON FUNDAMENTALS OF ELECTRONICS COMMUNICATIONS AND COMPUTER SCIENCES   E94A ( 5 ) 1173 - 1183  2011.05  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Due to the reuse factor reduction, the attendant increase in co-channel interference (CCI) becomes the limiting factor in the performance of the orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based cellular systems. In the previous work, we proposed the least mean square-blind joint maximum likelihood sequence estimation (LMS-BJMLSE) algorithm, which is effective for CCI cancellation in OFDM systems with only one receive antenna. However, LMS-BJMLSE requires a long training sequence (TS) for channel estimation, which reduces the transmission efficiency. In this paper, we propose a subcarrier identification and interpolation algorithm, in which the subcarriers are divided into groups based on the coherence bandwidth, and the slowest converging subcarrier in each group is identified by exploiting the correlation between the mean-square error (MSE) produced by LMS and the mean-square deviation (MSD) of the desired channel estimate. The identified poor channel estimate is replaced by the interpolation result using the adjacent subcarriers' channel estimates. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can reduce the required training sequence dramatically for both the cases of single interference and dual interference. We also generalize LMS-BJMLSE from single antenna to receiver diversity, which is shown to provide a huge improvement.

    Data collection method for mobile sensor networks based on the theory of thermal fields.   11 ( 7 )  2011  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    :Many sensor applications are aimed for mobile objects, where conventional routing approaches of data delivery might fail. Such applications are habitat monitoring, human probes or vehicular sensing systems. This paper targets such applications and proposes lightweight proactive distributed data collection scheme for Mobile Sensor Networks (MSN) based on the theory of thermal fields. By proper mapping, we create distribution function which allows considering characteristics of a sensor node. We show the functionality of our proposed forwarding method when adapted to the energy of sensor node. We also propose enhancement in order to maximize lifetime of the sensor nodes. We thoroughly evaluate proposed solution and discuss the tradeoffs.

    Martin Macuha, Yangyang Li, Takuro Sato

    2011 IEEE 22ND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON PERSONAL INDOOR AND MOBILE RADIO COMMUNICATIONS (PIMRC)     21 - 25  2011  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Peer-to-Peer file sharing, computing and communication services are widely used by internet community and thoroughly studied by academia. However, main utilization of such services is in the wired networks due to several significant issues in the wireless world like connectivity, bandwidth, battery, unwillingness of cellular operators, etc. In the recent years, offering femtocell access points to subscribers became very promising business model for cellular operator. It also opens space for a variety of new services at the users premises. In this paper, we propose novel architecture for mobile peer-to-peer file sharing based on the femtocell deployment and describe a role of the femtocell in such scenario. We also describe traditional architecture and previously proposed solutions for mobile P2P. We evaluate these approaches and clearly show that the femtocell plays significant role and moves mobile P2P services into reality. We also discuss several current issues which can be easily solved by this architecture.

  • RLS for link trigger in handover across heterogeneous wireless networks

    Nam Hoai Nguyen, Zhenyu Zhou, Takuro Sato

    IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference    2011

     View Summary

    The wireless communication system is evolving towards a ubiquitous wireless network in which multiple-radio devices can roam anytime and anywhere across different access networks. Minimal latency and low packet loss ratio during handover (HO) are the indispensable requirements to reduce service disruption and support real-time services. However, minimizing service disruption is a challenging issue to multiple access networks since HO latency is much higher than that of homogeneous networks. Link layer trigger or layer 2 trigger has been proposed to address this issue. Nevertheless, the precise timing and denitive criteria for initiating L2 trigger which can greatly affect the handover performance is not specified. This paper considers the issue of how to timely initiate handover decision from the link layer by using adaptive filtering algorithm to predict forthcoming received signal. Particularly, we propose Recursive Least Squares (RLS) as the predictive method for layer 2 triggering and compare its performance with various conventional filtering techniques. A simulation in which the proposed predictive algorithm is implemented to a handover scenario from Wi-Fi to WIMAX is also presented. Our numerical analysis and simulation results show that the proposed algorithm can achieve better performance than that of the other algorithms and can be used to enhance the handover performance in heterogeneous wireless networks. © 2011 IEEE.

  • Performance evaluation of a blind single antenna interference cancellation algorithm for OFDM systems with insufficient training sequence

    Zhenyu Zhou, Muhammad Tariq, Yi Jiang, Nam Hoai Nguyen, Takuro Sato

    IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference    2011

     View Summary

    In the previous work, a single antenna interference cancellation (SAIC) algorithm named least mean square-blind joint maximum likelihood sequence estimation (LMS-BJMLSE) has been proposed. However, LMS-BJMLSE requires a long training sequence (TS) for channel estimation, which reduces the transmission efficiency. In another work, in order to solve this problem, a subcarrier identification and interpolation algorithm was proposed, in which the slowly converging subcarriers are identified by exploiting the correlation between the mean-square error (MSE) produced by LMS and the mean-square deviation (MSD) of the desired channel estimate. However, this correlation relationship was only found based on simulation results and no clear mathematical proof was given. The performance of the algorithm was only evaluated for the case of single interference. In this paper, the mathematical proof of the correlation relationship between MSE and MSD is given. Furthermore, we generalize LMS-BJMLSE from single antenna to receiver diversity, which is shown to provide a huge improvement over single antenna. The performance of LMS-BJMLSE is also evaluated for the case of dual interference. © 2011 IEEE.

  • Performance Evaluation of the IEEE 802.15.4 Multi-hop Communications in Error-prone Wireless Sensor Networks

    Muhammad Tariq, Martin Macuha, Yong-Jin Park, Takuro Sato

    MOBIWAC 11: PROCEEDINGS OF THE NINTH ACM INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON MOBILITY MANAGEMENT AND WIRELESS ACCESS     131 - 135  2011  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Performance evaluation in terms of energy conservation and data reliability of the IEEE 802.15.4 multi-hop communications in error-prone Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) is an emerging research issue. In order to accurately evaluate the energy consumption of a sensor node and ultimately the lifetime of WSNs, it is highly desired to thoroughly analyze data reliability through variety of aspects. In this paper, we analyze data reliability in the IEEE 802.15.4 multi-hop communications in error-prone WSNs, by assessing the channel quality using both physical and logical channel quality estimators with different set of parametric values of IEEE 802.15.4 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol. On the basis of these estimators, we approximate the energy consumption of a sensor node. We also analyze the overheads caused by packet forwarding in the multi-hop WSNs. Simulation results indicate that although physical channel quality estimators are dependent on hardware characteristics, they show better performance in terms of energy consumption and successful data delivery compared to logical channel quality estimators.

  • A scheme for disaster recovery in wireless networks with dynamic ad-hoc routing

    Chen, Guowei, Hu, Aixian, Sato, Takuro

    International Telecommunication Union - Proceedings of the 2010 ITU-T Kaleidoscope Academic Conference: Beyond the Internet? Innovations for Future Networks and Services     183 - 188  2010.12

     View Summary

    This paper proposes a hybrid network scheme combining ad-hoc networks into cellular networks. The scheme is aimed to help the networks to recover to service as much as possible after a disaster strike, by maintaining the connection between Base Stations (BSs) and nodes via multi-hopping, where if a node cannot connect to a BS directly, it switches its working mode from cellular mode to ad-hoc mode. A location-based routing protocol has been proposed for building a route from the node to the BS. Simulation results shows that even if only a small part of the nodes can directly connect to a BS, most of the nodes can find a route to a BS via multi-hopping. And it is found that it outperforms a previously proposed solution which is via beaconing in terms of resistance to mobility.

  • Training sequence reduction for A blind single antenna interference cancellation algorithm in MQAM-OFDM systems

    Zhenyu Zhou, Takuro Sato

    IEEE International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications, PIMRC     36 - 40  2010

     View Summary

    In orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) based cellular systems, co-channel interference (CCI) from adjacent interfering base stations (BSs) would greatly degrade the bit error rate (BER) performance of cell-border users. In the previous work, a blind single antenna interference cancellation (SAIC) algorithm named least mean square-blind joint maximum likelihood sequence estimation (LMS-BJMLSE) has been proposed. The proposed LMS-BJMLSE algorithm is blind with respect to interfering signals and neither the training sequence (TS) nor pilot signal from interferers is needed. However, the conventional LMS-BJMLSE requires a long training sequence (TS) for channel estimation. In this paper, we propose a TS reduction scheme in which the subcarriers are divided into small groups based on the coherence bandwidth, and the slowest converging subcarrier in each group is identified by exploiting the correlation between the mean-square error (MSE) produced by LMS and the mean-square deviation (MSD) of the desired signal. The identified subcarrier's channel estimate is replaced by the interpolation result using the adjacent subcarriers' channel estimates. Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm could reduce the required TS length by 80%. ©2010 IEEE.

  • Diffusion based self-deployment algorithm for mobile sensor networks

    Muhammad Tariq, Zhenyu Zhou, Yong-Jin Park, Takuro Sato

    IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference    2010

     View Summary

    Mobile Sensor Networks (MSN) are used for network load balancing, prolonging network lifetime, and improving network coverage by monitoring critical areas where manual sensor deployment cannot be performed. Addressing the problem of how to achieve maximum network coverage and network uniformity, after deploying sensors in critical areas randomly, is of significant importance recently. In this paper, we design an energy efficient distributed self-deployment algorithm, which is based on the diffusion of mobile sensors in the Region of Interest (ROI). Mobile sensors are diffused from denser sensors area to lesser or uncovered area in ROI, on the basis of localized information. Our algorithm considers ROI with the absence as well as presence of obstacles. Resemblance in the numerical and simulation analysis confirms the concreteness of our algorithm. ©2010 IEEE.

     View Summary

    Mobile sensor networks have received significant attention recently. Mobile sensors are deployed to achieve network load balancing, prolonging network lifetime, and improving network coverage, by monitoring critical areas where manual sensor deployment cannot be performed. To achieve these goals, energy estimation is one of the main constraints and concerns to consider, while deploying mobile sensors in a sensor field. Most of the energy models designed for sensor networks assumed static sensors. In this paper, we propose a comprehensive energy model to estimate the overall energy consumption through power dissipation, for both static and mobile sensors in the potential sensor fields. We calculate the total remaining lifetime of mobile sensor networks from the total power dissipation. By predicting the remaining lifetime of any network in different network scenarios at a given instance of time, an optimum network strategy can be designed for a given application.

    KI Itoh, S Watanabe, JS Shih, T Sato

    IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON VEHICULAR TECHNOLOGY   51 ( 6 ) 1460 - 1468  2002.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    The performance of a proposed handoff algorithm based on both the distance of a mobile station to neighboring base stations and the relative signal strength measurements is evaluated. The algorithm performs handoff when the measured distance from the serving base station exceeds that from the candidate base station by a given threshold and if the measured signal strength of the adjacent base station exceeds that of the serving base station by a given hysteresis level. The average handoff delay and average number of handoffs are used as criteria for performance. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of the distance-based handoff algorithm, including results for an additional criterion based on relative signal strength. The proposed algorithm is compared with an algorithm based on absolute and relative signal strength measurements and with a solely distance-based algorithm. It is found that the proposed handoff algorithm performs well in a log-normal fading environment when the distance estimate error is modeled by wide-sense stationary additive white Gaussian noise.

     View Summary

    This paper assesses the performance of the handoff algorithm based on distance and RSSI measurements in a multi-cellular environment by computer simulation. The algorithm performs a handoff if handoff initiation conditions, handoff possible conditions, and handoff selective conditions are met. The performance criteria are based on the average number of handoffs, the crossover points and the average number of outages. Numerical results are presented to demonstrate the feasibility of the algorithm. The performance of the distance-assisted handoff algorithm is compared with that of a conventional algorithm that utilizes signal strength alone. Overall, the distance-assisted algorithm exhibits higher performance in average number of handoffs and the crossover points, yet exhibits a higher number of outages on average than the conventional algorithm.

    5TH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WIRELESS PERSONAL MULTIMEDIA COMMUNICATIONS, VOLS 1-3, PROCEEDINGS     1366 - 1369  2002  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    We analyzed the handoff performance of a multihop-based wireless LAN that uses Access Points (APs) for communication. When a mobile terminal isn't able to communicate with any APs, it uses other mobile terminals as Terminal Repeaters (TRs). The handoff criteria are based on absolute and relative signal strengths. The performance criteria are the average number of handoffis and the average handoff delay. We investigated the relation between the handoff criteria and the performance criteria when both the mobile terminal and the terminal repeaters are moving. Numerical results are presented to show that the average handoff delay decreases but the average number of handoffis increases as the TRs' moving speed is increased.

     View Summary

    This paper clarifies an estimation method of a carrier offset frequency of an orthogonal coding multi-carrier CDMA system under a multi-path fading. This paper analyzes an inter channel interference and an inner channel interference which are caused by the multicarrier offset frequency. An estimation method of the carrier offset frequency adopts a prediction method. Prediction coefficients are obtained by Burg algorithm of a Maximum entropy method. As a result of a simulation, it shows that Bit Error Rate (BER) is 3.5x10(-2) at 15 dB of E-6/N-0 for 32 kbit/sec of data rate and 16 subchannels of the orthogonal coding multi-carrier CDMA under a multi-path fading environment.

     View Summary

    This paper describes the evaluation results for Group 3 (G3) facsimile transmission in the transparent mode over the digital cellular system. Effectiveness of a convolutional code is clarified for encoding the G3 facsimile data from analysis of error correction capability for the transparent mode. The 1/2 convolutional code is used as the error correction code in the digital cellular circuit, and a simulation experiment is conducted at the data transmission speed of 4,800 bit/sec in a G3 facsimile. It has been clarified that the transparent transmission system is applicable up to a fading frequency of 80 Hz, a received power of -100 dBm and a handoff occupancy frequency of 4 times per minute on asumption of handoff occurrence probability in a Poisson distribution. This scheme presents the high reliable G3 facsimile transmission which does not depend on delay time of the digital cellular system.

    In collaboraticn with "Research and development of district-oriented high level information and communication service applications" Project which is underway in Honjyo area of Saitama prefecture, this research studies practical use of wireless ATM technology through application to the access network in the high level medical information network support system infrastructure in the area.
    2 Summary of the research result so far and the prospect for further study
    The collaborative project mentioned above has been implementing the regional wireless LAN and the high level medical information network support system in Honjyo city and adjacent townships of Saitama prefecture. In FY1999 we conducted the basic research activities as study and design of the wireless ATM network using optical wireless communication system, basic experiment, and investigation of the system environment together with the research committee of the collaborative project. In FY2000 we implemented the optical wireless ATM network, designed the architecture to interconnect with the network of the collaborative project followed by the functional confirmation through high definition video delivery and MPEG4 audio-visual communication, and verification test through multi-points distance learning. In FY2001 we continued further verification of the integrated network including the optical wireless ATM network by contents delivery through the digital CATV network in neighboring Kamiizumi village as well as MPEG-4 audio-visual contents delivery, which confirmed the practical use of wireless ATM technology. Also we studied the network support system and the service system for the high level medical information as well as the current situation of the medical organizations in Honjyo area in order to look into the possibility of the application of the research system throughout the area. We are going to continue to work together with the collaborative project in social welfare and medical fields to reflect well the results of this research work.

  • Research on Neural Network Based Dynamic Channel Assignment Systems in Cellular Mobfle Communication Systems

     View Summary

    Because demand for mobile communication services rapidly increases, the efficient use of frequency bands is an important issue. For the efficient use of the frequency bands, mobile communication networks should be highly optimized. Also, it is neciessary to apply intelligent control methods to mobile communication networks. To optimize the mobile networks, we must solve some NP complete problems quiclfly. For this purpose,neural networks and generic algorithms can be used, and it is very important to develop quick dynamic channel assignment systems using neural networks and genetic algorithms. The objective of this project is to develop dynamic channel assignment systems using neural networks and genetic algorithms, and to evaluate performance of the systems. It is considered that we can apply parallel computation systems consisting of some CPUs to dynamic channel assignment systems. Hence, this project develops dynamic channel assignment systems based on neural networks or genetic algorithms with parallel computation. This project has developed such systems for dynamic channel assignment. Through the evaluation process, we confirmed performance improvement by using the developed method. Also, we examined channel assignment methods to adapt to traffic fluctuation caused by vehicles' traffic fluctuation. Also, this project developed an approximate method to theoretically analyze communication traffic characteristics of dynamic channel assignment methods considering mobility. Other optimization problems and fundamental problems to improve mobile communication systems were also considered

  • 単一アンテナを用いた干渉除去技術による周波数有効利用技術の研究

    2009  

     View Summary

    概要本研究は、OFDM方式において一つのアンテナを送受信機に用いるSISO(Single Input Single Output)技術を用いて、さらに、隣接セルが同じ周波数を用いても、自局の希望信号と隣接セルの干渉信号とを分離し、自局の信号のみを検出する方式に関する研究である。本研究の成果により、一つのアンテナを用い、しかも全てのセルで同一の周波数を同時に用いることができることから、OFDM方式において周波数利用効率が最大となる通信方式を明らかにした.研究報告本研究成果は2つの分けることができる。それぞれについて述べる。(1)The Sequential Channel Estimation-Adaptive Joint Maximum A Posteriori (SCE-AJMAP)に関する研究逐次型チャネル推定は、シンボル毎にデータを更新し、高速フェージングによる希望信号と干渉信号が合成された受信信号の振幅変動をより精密に追従できることを示した.逐次型チャネル推定されたシンボル毎に適応的に同時最大事後確率を希望信号と干渉信号の両トレーニング信号も用いて適応同時最大事後確率を求める逐次型チャネル推定適応同時最大事後確率(SCE-AJMAP)復号方式を研究し、従来の同時最大事後確率(JMAP)復号器に比べて高速フェージング環境下における受信特性を大きく改善できることを示した.結果を図1に示す。干渉雑音が2dBで高速移動環境下において、14dBSINRにおいて10-3の誤り特性を可能とした。(2)The Least Mean Square-Blind Joint Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimation (LMS-BJMLSE)Algorithmに関する研究処理遅延が低い同時最尤度推定(JMLSE:Joint Maximum Likelihood Sequence Estimation)法と最小平均二乗(LMS:Least Mean Square)法を用いた単一アンテナ干渉除去方式の研究を行った.最小二乗同時最尤推定(LMS-JMLSE)方式は、希望局からのトレーニング系列のみを用い、干渉局からの情報が必要としないブラインド方式が可能であることを示した.LMS-JMLSE方式は希望信号および干渉信号のシンボル系列候補とそれぞれのチャネル推定値を用い、希望信号と干渉信号を含むレプリカ信号を生成し、受信信号から減算することで尤度情報を得て最尤推定を行い干渉信号が未知でも希望信号を検出することでブラインド問題を解決した.また、LMS-JMLSE方式は収束が遅いサブキャリアを検出し、線形補間が行うことで、トレーニング系列の大幅な減少を可能とし、伝送効率を大幅に向上させることができる.本研究ではさらに受信ダイバシーティにも適用し高速フェージングに対する優れた耐性が得られたことを明らかにした.結果を図2に示した。干渉雑音と希望信号が同じ0dBの条件において誤り特性10-3を実現した。
