The problem of maximizing the information flow through a sensor network tasked with an inference objective at the fusion center is considered. The sensor nodes take observations, compress, and send them to the fusion center through a network of relays. The network imposes capacity constraints on the rate of transmission in each connection and flow conservation constraints. It is shown that this rate-constrained inference problem can be cast as a Network Utility Maximization problem by suitably defining the utility functions for each sensor, and can be solved using existing techniques.


Millimeter wave (mmWave) communication is a promising technology to alleviate the shortage of spectrum resources in vehicular networks. To use mmWave spectrum resources more efficiently, in this paper we propose a novel beam alignment-based vehicular mmWave spectrum sensing model and algorithm. We first establish the spectrum sensing model on the basis of characteristics of mmWave signals and then derive the test statistics.


In this work we present novel provably accelerated gossip algorithms for solving the average consensus problem. The proposed protocols are inspired from the recently developed accelerated variants of the randomized Kaczmarz method - a popular method for solving linear systems. In each gossip iteration all nodes of the network update their values but only a pair of them exchange their private information. Numerical experiments on popular wireless sensor networks showing the benefits of our protocols are also presented.


For spreading-based multiple access, whether orthogonal (OMA) or non-orthogonal (NOMA), the spreading sequences (signatures) are selected from a predefined codebook. When operating in a cellular system, intercell interference will be inherently present between close base stations that share the same resources. If the codebook is reused across the different cells, then intercell interference can cause a full collision of the interfering users in the code-domain, thus deteriorating their performance, especially those at the cell-edge.


To develop intelligent receivers, automatic modulation classification (AMC) plays an important role for better spectrum utilization. The emerging deep learning (DL) technique has received much attention in AMC due to its superior performance in classifying data with deep structure. In this work, a novel polar-based deep learning architecture with channel compensation network (CCN) is proposed. Our test results show that learning features from polar domain (r-θ) can improve recognition accuracy by 5% and reduce training overhead by 48%.


The deployment of the 5G technology(ies) is planned to start by 2020, and these future systems will comprise multiple heterogeneous technologies and services ranging from the personal cellular, wireless local area networks (WLAN) up to the Internet of Things (IoT). The inherent complexity and heterogeneity in technology conjugated with the random nature of both the wireless channel, access and services will make the system evaluation of 5G a very difficult task calling for flexible testbeds where the randomness of the radio environment and mobility can be realistically emulated.
