Modelling Green Femtocells in Smart-grids

Al-Turjman, Fadi M.
On going demands to connect massive amounts of the heterogeneous mobile devices and data traffics make the mobile operators in desperate need to find energy-efficient solutions for coverage and real-time services. Accordingly, mobile femtocells are found to be a promising solution in the coming few decades. This paper presents energy-based analysis for mobile femtocells in Ultra-Large Scale (ULS) applications such as the smart-grid. The potential reduction of the consumed energy and service interruption due to mobility and multihop communication effects are considered as well as various performance metrics such as throughput, availability, and delay. In that sense the smart-grid is modeled as a green wireless communication system for traffic offloading while considering mobility of the femtocell base-station (FBS) as well as the FBS cut-offs for energy-saving aspects. A typical scenario, called e-Mobility, is considered as a case study where a set of mobile femtocells are utilized inside a single macrocell in order to achieve optimized utilities' usage. Numerical results achieved from the proposed smart-grid model have been verified and validated via extensive simulation results while considering typical operational conditions/parameters.


SWARM-based data delivery in Social Internet of Things
Hasan, Mohammed Zaki; Al-Turjman, Fadi (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
Social Internet of Things (SIoTs) refers to the rapidly growing network of connected objects and people that are able to collect and exchange data using embedded sensors. To guarantee the connectivity among these objects and people, fault tolerance routing has to be significantly considered. In this paper, we propose a bio-inspired particle multi-swarm optimization (PMSO) routing algorithm to construct, recover and select k-disjoint paths that tolerates the failure while satisfying quality of service (QoS) ...
Highly personalized information delivery to mobile clients
Ozen, B; Kilic, O; Altinel, M; Doğaç, Asuman (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-11-01)
The inherent limitations of mobile devices necessitate information to be delivered to mobile clients to be highly personalized according to their profiles. This information may be coming from a variety of resources like Web servers, company intranets, email servers. A critical issue for such systems is scalability, that is, the performance of the system should be in acceptable limits when the number of users increases dramatically. Another important issue is being able to express highly personalized informa...
IoT-enabled smart grid via SM: An overview
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Abujubbeh, Mohammad (Elsevier BV, 2019-07-01)
Power quality and reliability issues are big challenges to both service provider and consumers in conventional power grids. The ongoing technological advancements in the Internet of Things (IoT) era provide better solutions to enhance the management of these challenges and enforce the measures of a Smart Grid (SG). Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) and Smart Metering (SM) technologies are enabler technologies that can modernize the conventional power grid through exposing the hidden details of electric...
Modelling green HetNets in dynamic ultra large-scale applications: A case-study for femtocells in smart-cities
Ever, Enver; Al-Turjman, Fadi M.; Zahmatkesh, Hadi; Riza, Mustafa (2017-12-09)
In recent years, with the rapid increase in the number of mobile connected devices and data traffic, mobile operators have been trying to find solutions to provide better coverage and capacity for mobile users. In this respect, deployment of femtocells is a promising solution. This paper presents performability analysis of femtocells. Unlike the existing studies, the potential reduction of the service capacity due to failures are considered as well as various performance metrics such as throughput, mean que...
Cognitive routing protocol for disaster-inspired Internet of Things
Ai-Turjman, Fadi (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
In this paper, we propose a framework for data delivery in large-scale networks for disaster management, where numerous wireless sensors are distributed over city traffic-infrastructures, shopping-malls' parking areas, airports' facilities, etc. In general, our framework caters for energy-efficient applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) where data is propagated via relays from diverse sensor-nodes towards a gateway connected to a large-scale network such as the Internet. We consider the entire network...
