• An Analytical Model for Sparse Network Codes: Field Size Considerations 

      Zarei, Amir; Pahlevani, Peyman; E. Lucani, Daniel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      One of the by-products of Sparse Network Coding (SNC) is the ability to perform partial decoding, i.e., decoding some original packets prior to collecting all needed coded packets to decode the entire coded data. Due to ...
    • Definition of QoE Fairness in Shared Systems 

      Hossfelt, Tobias; Skorin-Kapov, Lea; Heegaard, Poul Einar; Varela, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      User-centric service and application management focuses on the Quality of Experience (QoE) as perceived by the end user. Thereby, the goal is to maximize QoE while ensuring fairness among users, e.g., for resource allocation ...
    • Measures for Network Structural Dependency Analysis 

      Woldeyohannes, Yordanos Tibebu; Jiang, Yuming (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      A set of new measures for network structural dependency analysis is introduced. These measures are based on geodesic distance, which is the number of links in a shortest path. They capture the structural dependency effect ...
    • On Physical Layer Security of α-η-κ-μ Fading Channels 

      Mathur, Aashish; Ai, Yun; Bhatnagar, Manav R.; Cheffena, Michael; Ohtsuki, Tomoaki (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In this letter, we study the secrecy performance of the classic Wyner’s wiretap model, where the main and eavesdropper channels are modeled by a general and versatile α-η-κ-µ fading model. Novel and exact expressions of ...
    • On the Partial Decoding Delay of Sparse Network Coding 

      Zarei, Amir; Pahlevani, Peyman; Davoodi Monfared, Mansoor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      Sparse network coding (SNC) is a promising technique for reducing the complexity of random linear network coding (RLNC), by selecting a sparse coefficient matrix to code the packets. However, the performance of SNC for the ...
    • Rain Attenuation Measurements and Analysis at 73 GHz E-Band Link in Tropical Region 

      Al-Samman, Ahmed; Mohamed, Marshed Kassim; Ai, Yun; Cheffena, Michael; Azmi, Marwan Hadri; Rahman, Tharek (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      This letter presents the rainfall intensity and rain attenuation analysis in tropical region based on a one-year measurement using the 73.5 GHz E-band link of 1.8 km with three rain gauges installed along the path. The ...
    • Secrecy Performance of Correlated α-μ Fading Channels 

      Mathur, Aashish; Ai, Yun; Cheffena, Michael; Kaddoum, Georges (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This paper investigates the secrecy performance of the classical Wyner’s wiretap model, where the main channel and eavesdropper channel experience correlated α-μ fading. Novel and exact expressions for the average secrecy ...
