This paper considers the problem of optimizing the downlink capacity of broadband fixed wireless access systems in two representative scenarios: a non-line-of-sight terrestrial system, and a system operating from a high altitude platform. In each case a packet-based system is considered, with the delay through the system of constant-length packets taken as the metric to evaluate the effectiveness of the ...

A framework is introduced to develop coordinated multicell beamforming (CMBF) design for wireless cellular networks powered by renewable energy sources (RES). To this end, novel models are put forth to account for RES harvesting, two-way energy trading, and conditional value-at-risk (CVaR) based energy transaction cost. Building on these models, we propose a distributed CMBF solution that minimizes the system-wide CVaR ...

  • Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter

    The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) mission has the primary objective of placing a science orbiter into a low and near‐circular Sun‐synchronous Mars orbit to perform remote sensing investigations to characterize the surface, subsurface, and atmosphere of the planet and to identify potential landing sites for future missions. This chapter describes the specific telecom calibrations and activities. Aerobraking ended with MRO in a slightly elliptical low‐altitude Sun‐synchronous orbit, called the science orbit. The antenna placement on an arriving/descending vehicle and that vehicle's attitudes relative to the orbiter are critical to maintain communication during EDL. The high‐gain antenna (HGA) consists of three main components: the feed, an ellipsoidal subreflector, and a 3‐m offset parabolic main reflector. The Ka‐band demonstration includes an assessment of the DSN's readiness to track Ka‐band signals from deep‐space missions. The MRO test was planned in the form of a telecommunications technology demonstration.

  • Mars Exploration Rover Telecommunications

    This chapter describes and assesses telecommunications of the two rovers launched in 2003 and named Spirit and Opportunity. Generally, the term 'spacecraft' refers to the vehicle before landing, and the term 'rover' refers to the vehicle after landing. For each spacecraft, there were three phases of the Mars Exploration Rover (MER) primary flight mission. The chapter provides a description of the MER X‐band and UHF telecommunication subsystems, with emphasis on both their development and operational challenges and lessons learned. The MER spacecraft were designed, built, and tested at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. The MER Flight Team is located at JPL.MER has been a fantastically successful mission, with both rovers reaching Mars' surface and embarking on explorations lasting far longer than the full mission‐success criterion of 90 sols each. The chapter discusses the MER telecom operations and performance for the primary mission and the first extended mission.

  • Mobility Management

    This chapter discusses the mobility management procedures that the network uses to keep track of the mobile's location. It begins by covering the procedures that switch a mobile between these states in response to changes in the user's activity, namely S1 release, paging and service requests, and continue by describing the mobility management procedures themselves. The chapter defines the mobility management procedures that the mobile should follow cell reselection in radio resource control (RRC)_IDLE, while TS 23.401. It describes the signalling procedures in RRC_CONNECTED and the procedures that switch the mobile between states. The chapter shows the measurements that the mobile has to make in both RRC states and the corresponding performance requirements.

  • The Wireless Standards Point of View

    A final set of constraints that drive the functionalities to be embedded in a transceiver as well as their performance come from the requirements set by the wireless standard we want to address. This chapter gives a quick overview of the classical metrics in order to understand the underlying network system constraints. The classical metrics include metrics for transmitters and metrics for receivers. By a "medium access strategy" the authors mean the strategy that is used by a wireless system in order to share in an optimal way the limited radio resource, i.e. the radio frequency band in practice, between on the one hand the different users and on the other hand the uplink and the downlink. Finally, the chapter gives a quick overview of the different strategies classically used to achieve these two goals, with the aim of examining the associated implementation constraints for transceivers.

  • Performance of LTE and LTE‐Advanced

    This chapter begins by examining the peak data rate of an LTE mobile, and reviews the issue that might prevent it from reaching that data rate. It discusses the techniques used for link budget estimation and propagation modelling in LTE and uses the results to estimate the coverage of an LTE cell. The chapter develops the techniques to produce an initial estimate of the capacity of an LTE cell and compares this with more robust estimates that are obtained from simulations. It concludes by examining the typical data rates and cell capacities for voice over IP.

  • Energy‐efficient Wireless OFDMA Networks

    This chapter focuses on energy‐efficient (EE) transmission and resource‐allocation techniques for OFDMA networks. The origin of EE wireless networks is first reviewed, and some interesting open problems in the area are also discussed. Then, the fundamental principles of EE design for OFDMA networks are discussed. As the first step, the fundamental interrelationship between EE and spectral efficiency (SE) in downlink OFDMA networks is investigated and the impacts of channel gain and circuit power on the EE-SE relationship are analyzed. Next, a general EE-SE optimization framework is proposed, where the overall EE, SE and per‐user quality‐of‐service are all considered. Under this framework, EE proves to be quasiconcave in SE and decreases with SE when SE is large enough. Finally, the tradeoff between EE and delay for delay‐sensitive traffic in downlink OFDMA networks is analyzed by integrating information theory with the concept of effective capacity. The relationship between spectrum‐efficient and energy‐efficient designs, and the impact of system parameters, including circuit power and delay exponents, on the overall performance are also discussed.

    This chapter contains sections titled: Introduction Physical Layer RF Tests for HSPA

  • Self‐Optimizing Networks

    This chapter covers the main self‐optimization features that have been added to long‐term evolution (LTE) in each of its releases. These fall into four broad categories, namely self‐configuration of an LTE base station, interference coordination, mobility management and drive test minimization. The chapter discusses a technique known as radio access network information management (RIM). It also discusses three self‐optimization techniques that relate to mobility management within LTE: mobility load balancing; mobility robustness optimization; and energy saving. RIM was originally developed for information transfers within the radio access network of GSM. It was later extended to information transfers between the radio access networks of Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) and LTE, specifically between the GSM base station controller, the UMTS radio network controller and the evolved Node B (eNB).

  • Mobile Broadband: Next Generation Mobile Networks

    The mobile broadband is becoming reality with 4G mobile networks, which include LTE‐Advanced and Mobile WiMAX 2.0. This chapter covers LTE‐Advanced regarding the standardization in access and core networks, including System Architecture Evolution (SAE), carrier aggregation in the radio access part, home eNodeB and Self‐Optimizing Networks (SON). Further, it describes Mobile WiMAX 2.0 architecture and radio access network. Also, the chapter covers Fixed‐Mobile Convergence (FMC) and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) in NGN environments with its functional entities. It also includes emerging mobile services such as mobile TV and location‐based services. However, in mobile environments this goes along with allocation of more spectrum and mechanisms for even higher spectral efficiency to have higher available bitrates in the future, so chapter ends with spectrum management and business aspects for mobile broadband.
