ML performance analysis of digital relaying in bi-directional relay channels

Ozdemir, Ozgur
Yılmaz, Ali Özgür
The research challenges to enhance the throughput of communication networks revealed the concept of network coding which is based on the idea of coding at packet level. The bi-directional relay channel in which two user terminals exchange independent information with the help of a relay terminal is among the prominent applications of network coding in wireless cooperative communications. In this paper, maximum likelihood (ML) performance analysis of digital relaying based bi-directional communication is presented. The three stage communication scenario is considered where the first and second stages are allotted to the transmissions of the users and after demodulation the relay broadcasts the network encoded packet obtained by a bit-wise XOR operation to the users in the third stage. The average bit error rate of this scheme with ML detection is derived for Rayleigh fading channels under noncoherent BFSK and coherent BPSK signaling. Simulation results are also presented to validate the theoretical analysis. Analytical and simulation results show that digital relaying based three stage bi-directional communication scheme with ML detection not only outperforms the noncooperative system that involves direct transmissions between user terminals but also prevents the diversity level reduction due to error propagation.

Cognitive-Node Architecture and a Deployment Strategy for the Future WSNs
Al-Turjman, Fadi (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-10-01)
The advent of sensing and communication technologies represents the next step in the evolution of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) and future applications. Future WSNs systems demand that connected devices could be able to work autonomously, while surfing on-line generated data and process them for self-decision making. Accordingly, we propose a cognitive Information-Centric Sensor Network (ICSN) framework. The fundamentals of cognition in ICSN can be recognized as a promising direction in addressing opportu...
PLGAKD: A PUF-based Lightweight Group Authentication and Key Distribution Protocol
Yıldız, Hüsnü; Cenk, Murat; Onur, Ertan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-11-01)
Securing Internet of Things (IoT) applications that collect and transport sensitive data by guaranteeing authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality is a critical challenge. Reducing computation and communication overhead of security functions is also a key concern since a large number of constrained devices may take place in such applications. Our main focus in this paper is group authentication and key management in IoT. The existing group authentication and key management protocols in the literature per...
Handoff performance improvement with latency reduction in next generation wireless networks
Akan, OB; Baykal, Buyurman (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2005-05-01)
The next generation (NG) wireless networks are expected to provide mobile users with the real-time multimedia services. High sensitivity to time constraints like delay and jitter is one of the important characteristics of the multimedia traffic. In order to maintain a certain quality of service (QoS) level, the handoff latency should be minimized. Furthermore, if the new cell is not ready at the actual handoff time, the handoff call may be even forced terminated. Hence, the handoff preparation latency direc...
Systematic message schedule construction for time-triggered CAN
Schmidt, Klaus Verner; Schmidt, Şenan Ece (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2007-11-01)
The most widely used standard for in-vehicle communication networks that interconnect electronic control units is the controller area network (CAN). However, the event-triggered architecture of CAN introduces several issues, such as predictability, signal jitter, and reliability. Different time-triggered networks. are being developed to address these issues. In this paper, we focus on time-triggered CAN (TTCAN), which achieves time-triggered behavior by implementing time-division multiple access on the exis...
IPBM: an energy efficient reliable interference-aware periodic broadcast messaging protocol for MANETs
ÜNLÜ, BERK; Ozceylan, Baver; Baykal, Buyurman (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-07-01)
Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) have been widely employed in many fields including critical information delivery in open terrains as in tactical area, vehicular or disaster area network scenarios. To provide effective network maintenance for those MANETs, it is essential to adopt proper control communication methods, which provide reliable delivery of network information. However, it is difficult to provide control communication that meets the quality of service requirements due to the broadcasting of contr...
