High Order QAM Performance Under Phase and Amplitude Distortions

Gulgun, Ziya
Yılmaz, Ali Özgür
High Order QAM such as 512QAM, 1024QAM along with mm-wave transmission is one of the strong candidates for next generation wireless networks. However, due to nonlinearities of RF devices the performance of higher order QAM may be hampered and restrict the transmission rate. As observed in many studies in the literature, outermost constellation points are usually more adversely affected by these impairments. In our previous work, we analyzed this effect by using the Rapp model. Namely, only amplitude distortion on the constellation points was taken into account, where in-phase and quadrature distortions originating from the model can be assumed as independent. In this work, in addition to amplitude distortion, we add phase distortion to the system by using the Saleh model and adding phase distortion prevents us to assume that in-phase and quadrature parts of the distortions are independent according to our observations. In this work, focusing on non-uniform EVM values of each QAM symbol we evaluate achievable rates by considering correlation between in-phase and quadrature distortions. Moreover, we propose a receiver that considers correlation between the in-phase distortion and the quadrature distortion and the unequal EVM distribution by assessing each symbol's distortion. The performance of the receiver is compared with that of other two receivers.


Optimized Asymmetric Cooperation for Downlink Cloud Radio Access Network under per-Base Station Data Transfer Constraint
Kadan, Fehmi Emre; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür (2017-01-01)
Using multicell cooperation between several base stations (BSs) connected to a central processor (CP) via finite capacity digital backhaul links, the inter-cell interference, which is known to limit the standard cellular systems, can be mitigated. When all user data is sent to each BS through the CP, which is referred as the full cooperation, the interference can be perfectly eliminated, however, this may cause the capacity of backhaul links to be exceeded. In this study, it is aimed to find the optimal asy...

Güngör, Ömer Fevzi; Aydın Çivi, Hatice Özlem; Koçer, Fatih; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
Massive MIMO and beamforming are technologies that may enable ultrafast 5G network. They are predicted to be used widely in next-generation high capacity communication systems. In the implementation of beamforming and MIMO, the large number of antennas and RF control components are utilized. However; some challenges related to power consumption, control complexity, cost, and size of transceiver have arisen. Vector Modulator (VM) may be one possible effective solution to these challenges because it merges th...

Hakyemez, Serkan Ender; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2007)
In recent years the need for multimedia packet data services in wireless networks has grown rapidly. To overcome that need third generation (3G) mobile services have been proposed. The fast growing demands multimedia services in 3G services brought the need for higher capacity. As a result of this, the improvement on throughput, traffic serving performance has become necessary in 3G systems. Code division multiple access (CDMA) technique is one of the most important 3G wireless mobile techniques that has be...
Implementation of stanag 428 hf modem software on tms320c54x digital signal processor
Örümlü, Erhan; Baykal, Buyurman; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
In this research, STANAG 4285 HF modem software is implemented on TMS320C54x fixed point digital signal processor. The software is optimized in order to meet real-time operation requirements. A fractionally spaced least mean square (LMS) decision feedback equalizer (DFE) is employed for the receiver. In order to improve the convergence of the LMS algorithm a multipass technique is utilized. Based on Watterson̕s model, an HF channel simulator is employed for evaluating the performance of the modem. The simul...

Sarıça, Alper Kaan; Angın, Pelin; Department of Computer Engineering (2021-9)
The significant advances in wireless networks with the 5G networks have made possible a variety of new IoT use cases. 5G and beyond networks will significantly rely on network virtualization technologies such as SDN and NFV. The prevalence of IoT and the large attack surface it has created calls for SDN-based intelligent security solutions that achieve real-time, automated intrusion detection and mitigation. In this thesis, we propose a real-time intrusion detection and mitigation system for SDN, which aims...
