Performance of Spectrum Sharing Protocol for Uplink Transmissions in Cellular Communications with Relays

Presented at IEEE VTC Authors: Dileep Kumar Verma, Shankar Prakriya Abstract—In this paper, we consider a cellular communication system with half-duplex regenerative relays, and propose a dynamic spectrum access (DSA)-based protocol for simultaneous uplink transmission in the same frequency band as the downlink transmission. The proposed protocol facilitates better frequency utilization. In this protocol, relay selection is employed for the… Read More

Outage Performance of Dynamic Spectrum Access Systems with Energy Harvesting Transmitters

Presented at IEEE PIMRC Authors: Komal Janghel, Shankar Prakriya Abstract—We consider a two-hop primary network with a multi-antenna primary base-station (PBS) communicating to its distant primary receiver (PR) through a relay, and a secondary network with one of several energy harvesting secondary trans- mitters (STs) communicating to the secondary base-station (SBS). In this paper we propose a novel framework where the… Read More

Energy efficient random access with delay constraints

Presented at Conference: IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory (ISIT), June 29 – July 4, Honolulu, HI, USA Authors: S. Sreekumar, S R B Pillai, B K Dey Abstract—We consider a multiple access system (MAC) with bursty arrivals. The transmissions are grouped into slots and the users are frame-synchronized. At the start of each time slot, variable sized packets independently arrive… Read More
