Recent developments in telecommunication world have allowed customers to share the storage and processing capabilities of their devices by providing services through fast and reliable connections. This evolution, however, requires building an incentive system to encourage information exchange in future telecommunication networks. In this study, we propose a mechanism to share bandwidth and processing resources among subscribers using smart contracts and a blockchain-based incentive mechanism, which is used to encourage subscribers to share their resources. We demonstrate the applicability of the proposed method through two use cases: (i) exchanging multimedia data and (ii) CPU sharing. We propose a universal user-to-user and user-to-operator payment system, named TelCash, which provides a solution for current roaming problems and establishes trust in X2X communications. TelCash has a great potential in solving the charges of roaming and reputation management (reliance) problems in telecommunications sector. We also show, by using a simulation study, that encouraging D2D communication leads to a significant increase in content quality, and there is a threshold after which downloading from base station is dramatically cut down and can be kept as low as 10%.


Dynamic Resource Management in Next Generation Networks based on Deep Q Learning
Aslan, Aysun; Bal Bozkurt, Gülce; Toker, Cenk (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE); 2021-1-07)
In next generation networks, with the increasing number of diverse mobile network service types, a major challenge lies in how to manage and support all mobile service users who have different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Network slicing term can be a solution to satisfy the heterogeneous network requests over a common physical infrastructure. Splitting the network into slices which have different properties (e.g., bandwidth requirements, delay tolerance, user density, etc.) allows to schedule and...
Mobile user data mining to infer knowledge workers' differences in office environments for effective health delivery
Çavdar, Şeyma; Taşkaya Temizel, Tuğba; Department of Information Systems (2019)
Owing to the widespread and ubiquitous nature of mobile technologies, a large amount of data about users including location, access and interaction behavior is currently available. This data has recently become important as it has the potential to reveal personal information, social context and user characteristics, which can be significant for effective health interventions through mobile phones. Accordingly, this thesis mainly aims to explore the individual differences of knowledge workers and social cont...
Usage of device-to-device communication with multiple antennas at the cell edges Çoklu antenli cihazdan cihaza haberleşme yönteminin hücre kenarindaki alanlarda kullanimi

5G technology is considered to bring dramatic improvements from the large scale data transmission to latency, from reliable data trasmission to energy efficiency. One significant improvement is expected in the communication rates between the mobile users at cell edges. Device-to-device (D2D) communication is an important technique to meet the higher data rates between the mobile users at cell edges compared to standard base station communication. In this paper, important decrease in the outage probability i...
Semantic prefetching and caching in 5G
Mehteroğlu, Can; Onur, Ertan; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
Recent popularity of mobile devices increased the demand for mobile network services and applications that require minimal delay. 5G mobile networks are expected to provide much lesser delay than the present mobile networks. One of the conventional ways for decreasing latency is caching content closer to end users. However, currently deployed methods are not effective enough. In this thesis, we propose a new astute caching strategy that is able to smartly predict subsequent user requests and prefetch necess...
Device-to-Device Caching for Video Streaming Content
Aytac, Koray Necip; Girici, Tolga; Yüksel Turgut, Ayşe Melda; Telli, Ali; Koksal, Murat Ilter (2017-01-01)
The novelty of 5G with respect to former generation mobile networks is to provide fast and effective access to rich media and video content information. On the other hand, 5G promises to provide very low latency and very high datarate with respect to current technology. One of the methods that makes this target possible is to store popular contents at the caches of base station and mobile terminals and then to transmit to the demanding users with a low latency. In this paper we constructed a simulation mode...
