    Uplink Capacity Analysis of OFDMA Based Cellular Networks with Reuse-1

    OFDMA based cellular radio networks aim to operate as close as possible to frequency reuse distance of one, where the whole spectrum would be available in every cell. Modern systems are able to adjust parameters such as transmission power, modulation, and coding separately for each frequency sub-channel on a very...

    System Level Performance Evaluation of LTE with MIMO and Relays in Reuse-1 IMT-Advanced Scenarios

    Cellular radio systems of the next generation will have to comply with the IMT-Advanced guidelines. Advanced radio techniques must be integrated into wireless systems to achieve the high spectral efficiency numbers required. Multiple antenna techniques such as MIMO are beneficial in regions of high SINR and low spatial stream correlation....

    Frame Delay Distribution Analysis of IEEE 802.11 Networks Using Signal Flow Graphs

    Frame delay variance in CSMA/CA networks is large. Wireless applications may require both, limited mean delay and limited delay jitter. These parameters can be derived easily from Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF) of frame delay. This paper applies Signal Flow Graphs (SFGs) to calculate the CDF of frame delay in IEEE...

    How Bad Is Interference in IEEE 802.16e Systems?

    This paper presents a performance model for dynamic resource allocation in cellular deployments of IEEE 802.16e-like systems. More specifically, the authors derive a framework which allows to quantify the number of VoIP calls that can be supported in downlink of such systems purely based on the average SINR per terminal....
