Adaptive modulation for completion time minimization in wireless broadcast networks

2017-01-01
In this work we study the effect of hierarchical modulation on completion time minimization in wireless broadcast channels. Time needed to transmit all bits intended for a particular user is defined as its completion time. In this work we investigate minimizing the maximum completion time over all users in a broadcast channel using hierarchical modulation. We compare time division, opportunistic scheduling, and three different adaptive modulation schemes: rate adaptive hierarchical modulation assisted transmission (HA), modified HA (MHA) and optimal HA (OHA). While HA aims at maximizing total throughput, OHA minimizes the maximum completion time, and MHA provides an intermediate solution. It is observed that OHA always chooses the best superposition order and the constellation size to minimize the maximum completion time. (C) 2016 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

Diversity Analysis of Hierarchical Modulation in Wireless Relay Networks
Yalcyn, Ahmet Zahid; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda (2014-07-01)
In communication systems, hierarchical modulation is used to increase system robustness and to send different information flows simultaneously. However, when used in cooperative communication systems, hierarchical modulation is prone to error propagation, which is the most important problem that prevents the achievement of full diversity gains. Depending on the signal-to-noise ratio between the source and the relay, threshold digital relaying can be used to mitigate error propagation. Mitigating error propa...
Frequency invariant beamforming and its application to wideband direction of arrival estimation
Babataş, Eren; Candan, Çağatay; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2008)
In this thesis the direction of arrival estimation of wideband signals using frequency invariant beamforming method is examined. The difficulty with the direction of arrival estimation of wideband signals is that it is not possible to obtain a single covariance matrix valid for the whole frequency spectrum of the signal. There are various methods proposed in the literature to overcome this difficulty. The common aim of all the methods is to obtain a composite covariance matrix for the overall band of the si...
Optimal resource allocation algorithms for efficient operation of wireless networks
Özel, Ömür; Uysal Bıyıkoğlu, Elif; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, we analyze allocation of two separate resources in wireless networks: transmit power and buffer space. Controlled allocation of power can provide good performance for both users and the network. Although centralized mechanisms are possible, distributed power control algorithms are preferable for efficient operation of the network. Viewing distributed power allocation as the collection of rational decisions of each user, we make game theoretic problem formulations, devise distributed algorith...
Reducing MIMO detection complexity via hierarchical modulation /
Uğur, Yiğit; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
This work considers multiple-inputmultiple-output (MIMO) communication systems using hierarchical modulation. A disadvantage of the maximum-likelihood (ML) MIMO detector is that its computational complexity increases exponentially with the number of transmit antennas. To reduce complexity, we propose a hierarchical modulation scheme to be used in MIMO transmission where base and enhancement layers are incorporated. In the proposed receiver, the base layer is detected first with a minimum mean square error (...
Fpga implementation of jointly operating channel estimator and parallelized decoder
Kılcıoğlu, Çağlar; Yılmaz, Ali Özgür; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
In this thesis, implementation details of a joint channel estimator and parallelized decoder structure on an FPGA-based platform is considered. Turbo decoders are used for the decoding process in this structure. However, turbo decoders introduce large decoding latencies since they operate in an iterative manner. To overcome that problem, parallelization is applied to the turbo codes and the resulting parallel decodable turbo code (PDTC) structure is employed for coding. The performance of a PDTC decoder and...
