Adaptive Routing Scheme to Avoid Clusterhead Congestion in c-DSDV Routing Protocol
Oh, Hoon ; Yun, Seok-Yeol ; Vu, Trong Tuan ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 219~224
In the c-DSDV routing protocol proposed to improve the scalability of DSDV, clusterheads manage a routing table that has only clusterheads as potential destinations and flood update request message to its neighbor clusterheads periodically or at the time of topology change. Accordingly, the convergence range of topology change by a single update request message was expanded nine times as wide as that of DSDV, increasing routing correctness; however, c-DSDV suffers from the congestion of clusterheads since data packets always go through clusterheads of the clusters on the routing path. To improve this problem, we propose an adaptive routing scheme that judges if detouring clusterhead is possible on the fly while packets are forwarded. As a result, a routing path length is shortened and an end-to-end delay is improved by the reduced queue length. It shows that the end-to-end delay is reduced by almost 40% through simulation.

Jin, Young-Hwan ; Kim, Hye-Jin ; Kim, Jik-Dong ; Ahn, Jae-Min ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 225~234
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems utilizing direct conversion receiver suffer from frequency selective (FS) and frequency independent (FI) phase and gain imbalances caused by imperfect local oscillator and low pass filter. In this paper, we analyze the impacts of the transmit/receive IQ imbalances on the system and propose the estimation and compensation schemes for those imbalances. The preamble signals coded by Alamouti scheme in the frequency domain could be used in the estimation of relatively large IQ imbalances with FS and FI characteristics and the estimation results are used for the compensation of distortions caused by the FI and FS IQ imbalances. The optimal maximum likelihood (ML) receiver or suboptimal ordered successive interference cancallation (OSIC) receiver utilizing the estimation results show symbol error rate (SER) performance improvement compared to zero-forcing (ZF) technique due to diversity gain inherent in the frequency domain IQ imbalances combined with the frequency selective channels.
Cooperative MIMO Channel Simulation Based on the Geometrical Ring Model
Yang, Mi-Sun ; Kim, Dong-Woo ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 235~239
In this paper, we study a simulation model for cooperative MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) channels and present a cooperative one-ring channel model which is extended from the geometrical one-ring and two-ring scattering models. Assuming that the source, the destination and the relay are surrounded by an infinite number of scatters, we derive a reference model for the cooperative one-ring channel and propose a simulation model based on the reference model provided in the paper. Then we show how modeling parameters of the simulation model are determined to match the correlation functions for the respective models. With numerical investigation, we also show that the correlation functions for the reference and the simulation are well matched.

Choi, Ho-Seon ; Jang, Dong-Heon ; An, Dong-Hun ; Yang, Hoon-Gee ; Yang, Seong-Hyeon ; Kang, Moon-Sik ; Kim, Se-Jung ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 240~247
In this paper, we propose a digitally implementable synchronization method for the UWB system. This is achieved by manipulating the frequency components of a synchronizing signal which is the sequence of pulses of periodicity. We analyze the dependancy of the number of pulses and pulse interval on the intrinsic synchronization accuracy. Moreover, through the computer simulation, the performance of the proposed method is examined via varying system parameters.
Delay Determination of Cyclic Delay Diversity for Multi-user Scheduling in OFDMA Systems
Rim, Min-Joong ; Hur, Seong-Ho ; Song, Hyun-Joo ; Lim, Dae-Woon ; Jeong, Byung-Jang ; Noh, Tae-Gyun ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 248~255
In an OFDMA system the performance of multi-user scheduling in the frequency domain is affected by the frequency selectivity of the channel. If the channel is too flat in the frequency domain, the multi-user scheduling gain might be degraded. On the contrary, if the frequency selectivity is too high and the magnitude of the frequency response severely fluctuates on the allocation bandwidth, it is also hard to get sufficient scheduling gain. For maximizing the multi-user scheduling gain, a cyclic delay diversity technique can be used to adjust the frequency selectivity of the channel. This paper proposes a method to determine the optimal delay value of cyclic delay diversity according to the allocation bandwidth and the channel characteristics.

This paper proposes an efficient scheme to track the time variant channel induced by multi-path Rayleigh fading in mobile wireless Multiple Input Multiple Output-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MIMO-OFDM) systems with null sub-carriers. In the proposed method, a blind channel response predictor is designed to cope with the time variant channel. The proposed channel tracking scheme consists of a frequency domain estimation approach that is coupled with a Minimum Mean Square Error (MMSE) time domain estimation method, and does not require any matrix inverse calculation during each OFDM symbol. The main attributes of the proposed scheme are its reduced computational complexity and good tracking performance of channel variations. The simulation results show that the proposed method exhibits superior performance than the conventional channel tracking method  in time varying channel environments. At a Doppler frequency of 100Hz and bit error rates (BER) of 10-4, signal-to-noise power ratio (Eb/N0) gains of about 2.5dB are achieved relative to the conventional channel tracking method . At a Doppler frequency of 200Hz, the performance difference between the proposed method and conventional one becomes much larger.
Analysis of M-WiMAX Uplink Capacity with Receive Beamforming and Adjacent Channel Interference from WCDMA Downlink
Wang, Yu-Peng ; Chang, Kyung-Hi ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 269~276
In this paper, we analyze the M-WiMAX UL capacity limits under 2-Tier cell layout, considering the effects of random user position, path loss models, fading channel and adjacent channel interference from WCDMA system. In order to make the analysis approximate to the practical system capacity, we propose a MCS-based capacity analysis method considering the effects of PER requirement and the utilized MCS levels in M-WiMAX system. The proposed MCS-based method is validated through a system-level Monte Carlo simulation. Furthermore, a comparison between the conventional Shannon method and the proposed MCS-based method is presented and the optimum cell radius is suggested.
Improved Orthogonal Code Hopping Multiplexing Using Both Division and Hopping
Kwon, Jae-Kyun ; Park, Su-Won ; Sung, Dan-Keun ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 277~285
We previously proposed an Orthogonal Code Hopping Multiplexing (OCHM) scheme for statistical multiplexing on a synchronous downlink. OCHM enables a large number of users to share a limited number of code channels through statistical multiplexing. We here improve the performance of OCHM by prioritizing encoded symbols according to their importance using both the conventional code division and the previously proposed code hopping multiplexing schemes. Prioritization is useful for channel coding schemes with different levels of importance for encoded symbols such as turbo-codes. Scheme performance is evaluated by simulation in terms of the required Eb/N0 for a 1% block error rate.
Orthogonal Multi-beam Techniques for Multi-user Diversity and Multiplexing Gain in Packet-based Wireless Systems
Oh, Dong-Chan ; Lee, Yong-Hwan ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 286~295
In this paper, we consider the use of orthogonal multiple beams (OMBs) to simultaneously achieve multi-user diversity and multiplexing gain in a packet-based wireless system. Previous OMB scheme considers the use of a fixed number of multiple beams equal to the number of transmit antennas. However, unless the number of active users is sufficiently large, the use of a fixed number of multiple beams may not provide desired performance due to the interference signal transmitted through other beams, being even worse than the use of a single beam. To alleviate this problem, we consider the adjustment of the number of beams in use to maximize the spectral efficiency according to the operating condition. Simulation results show the validity of the proposed scheme.

Co-existence of various wireless systems may cause frequency interference problem. For this reason, frequency sharing studies play a very important role in order to use limited spectrum resources efficiently. Especially, because a satellite system covers a global area in nature, the frequency sharing between the satellite system and terrestrial systems is essential. For satellite systems using Ka bands, we can increase spectrum efficiency by considering off-axis angles of earth station antenna. In this paper, we demonstrate the analysis result of separation distance between the satellite earth station and a terrestrial repeater, and the presented results can be used to design and implement Ka band wireless systems.
Mobility Management in Multi-Radio Multi-Channel Wireless Mesh Networks
Que, Ma. Victoria ; Hwang, Won-Joo ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 304~310
In a wireless mesh network, there are two types of nodes: mesh routers and mesh clients. These two contradistinct network entities will be characterized and modeled depending on their role in the network. Mesh routers are essentially not mobile unlike the mesh clients. The differences on these nodes should be noted in any protocol design. In this paper, we present a mobility management for wireless mesh network (WMN). This mobility management handles movement of wireless mesh clients as it leaves from a coverage area of a wireless mesh router to another. We consider signaling overhead and mobility as performance metrics.
Pulse Shape Design for Ultra-Wideband Radios Using Projections onto Convex Sets
Lee, Seo-Young ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 311~318
We propose new pulse shapes for FCC-compliant ultra-wideband (UWB) radios. The projections onto convex sets (POCS) technique is used to optimize temporal and spectral shapes of UWB pulses under the constraints of all of the desired UWB signal properties: efficient spectral utilization under the FCC spectral mask, time-limitedness, and good autocorrelation. Simulation results show that for all values of the pulse duration, the new pulse shapes not only meet the FCC spectral mask most efficiently, but also have nearly the same autocorrelation functions. It is also observed that our truncated (i.e., strictly time-limited) pulse shapes outperform the truncated Gaussian monocycle in the BER performance of binary TH-PPM systems for the same pulse durations. The POCS technique provides an effective method for designing UWB pulse shapes in terms of its inherent design flexibility and joint optimization capability.
An Efficient Method for Selecting DVOR Installation Site
Park, Hyeong-Taek ; Hwang, Byong-Won ;
The Journal of Korean Institute of Communications and Information Sciences, volume 33, issue 3A, 2008, Pages 319~326
All over the world more than 2,000 VORs(VHF Omni-directional Ranges) including 39 in Korea are being operated for formulating air routes. But VOR reveals some difficulties in cost and time when relocating already an installed one due to its poor performance from the interference by its geometrically surrounding obstacles. DVOR(Doppler VOR) which is more popular than CVOR(Conventional VOR) has huge antennas and make it very difficult to assume a sufficient number of proper site candidates for permanent installation. This paper develops an efficient method for predicting proper site of DVOR installation by isolating transmitter from sideband antennas and counterpoise, making the transmitter easily moveable and verifying the performance of DVOR only with a transmitter and an antenna. The method was tested with a real flight measurement for DVOR performance around Gwangju Airport in Korea.

Conventional on-channel-repeaters (OCRs) have a crucial problem that the power of a re-transmitted signal is highly limited by a feedback signal due to antenna coupling. The power limitation problem in OCRs has been solved by incorporating a demodulation-type feedback canceller which eliminates unwanted feedback signals by estimating a feedback channel. In applying the demodulation-type feedback canceller to T-DMB repeaters, there is a troublesome problem of unfrequent known pilot symbols, resulting in poor convergence performance of channel estimation. To solve this problem and enhance the accuracy of estimation, we propose a partitioning method of the Phase Reference Symbol (PRS) transformed in time domain. Since filter coefficients are updated every one partitioned subgroup, the number of updates is increased by the number of partitioned subgroups and thus the convergence speed is enhanced. The improved performance of feedback-channel estimation is directly connected with the feedback-cancellation performance. Simulation result shows that the feedback canceller incorporating the proposed partitioning method has a good performance in terms of residual feedback power.
