A Feedback-Based Transmission for Wireless Networks with Energy and Secrecy Constraints

This paper investigates new transmission techniques for clustered feedback-based wireless networks that are characterized by energy and secrecy constraints. The proposed schemes incorporate multi-user diversity gain with an appropriate Power Allocation (PA) in order to support a defined Quality-of-Service (QoS) and jointly achieve lifetime maximization and confidentiality. The authors show that an adaptive PA scheme that adjusts the transmitted power using instantaneous feedback and suspends the transmission when the required power is higher than a threshold significantly prolongs the network lifetime without affecting the QoS of the network.
