HetNets Powered by Renewable Energy Sources: Sustainable Next-Generation Cellular Networks
Found in: IEEE Internet Computing
By Giuseppe Piro,Marco Miozzo,Giuseppe Forte,Nicola Baldo,Luigi Alfredo Grieco,Gennaro Boggia,Paolo Dini
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 32-39
Renewable energy could be the key for sustainable next-generation cellular networks. The authors' approach would let mobile operators feed base stations in a heterogeneous network using renewable energy sources. The authors compare their method to a classi...
 
An open source model for the simulation of LTE handover scenarios and algorithms in ns-3
Found in: Proceedings of the 16th ACM international conference on Modeling, analysis & simulation of wireless and mobile systems (MSWiM '13)
By Manuel Requena-Esteso, Raymond Kwan, Marco Miozzo, Nicola Baldo
Issue Date:November 2013
pp. 289-298
In this paper, we present an open source simulation model for the ns-3 simulator that allows the simulation of LTE handover scenarios, to support the design and evaluation of handover decision algorithms. In addition to the features supported by other publ...
     
A lightweight and accurate link abstraction model for the simulation of LTE networks in ns-3
Found in: Proceedings of the 15th ACM international conference on Modeling, analysis and simulation of wireless and mobile systems (MSWiM '12)
By Marco Mezzavilla, Marco Miozzo, Michele Rossi, Michele Zorzi, Nicola Baldo
Issue Date:October 2012
pp. 55-60
In this work we present a link abstraction model for the simulation of downlink data transmission in LTE networks. The purpose of this model is to provide an accurate link performance metric at a low computational cost by relying solely on the knowledge of...
     
Small cells, wireless backhaul and renewable energy: a solution for disaster aftermath communications
Found in: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Cognitive Radio and Advanced Spectrum Management (CogART '11)
By Jose Nunez-Martinez, Josep Mangues-Bafalluy, Marco Miozzo, Nicola Baldo, Paolo Dini
Issue Date:October 2011
pp. 1-7
In this paper we propose a network infrastructure to be deployed in the aftermath of a disaster with the aim of providing communication services to both emergency responders and civilians. The proposed infrastructure is a Network of Small Cells powered by ...
     
Design of a unified multimedia-aware framework for resource allocation in LTE femtocells
Found in: Proceedings of the 9th ACM international symposium on Mobility management and wireless access (MobiWac '11)
By Iffat Ahmed, Leonardo Badia, Marco Miozzo, Nicola Baldo
Issue Date:October 2011
pp. 159-162
In future 4G communication networks, it is expected that most of the bandwidth will be used to serve multimedia applications. Thus, there is a need for scheduling mechanisms, which can manage various types of multimedia communication (interactive, conversa...
     
An open source product-oriented LTE network simulator based on ns-3
Found in: Proceedings of the 14th ACM international conference on Modeling, analysis and simulation of wireless and mobile systems (MSWiM '11)
By Jaume Nin-Guerrero, Manuel Requena-Esteso, Marco Miozzo, Nicola Baldo
Issue Date:October 2011
pp. 293-298
In this paper we present a new simulation module for ns-3 aimed at the simulation of LTE networks. This module has been designed with a product-oriented perspective in order to allow LTE equipment manufacturers to test RRM/SON algorithms in a simulation en...
     
Multi-channel medium access using a virtual network coded control channel
Found in: Proceedings of the 2009 International Conference on Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing: Connecting the World Wirelessly (IWCMC '09)
By Alfred Asterjadhi, Michele Zorzi, Nicola Baldo
Issue Date:June 2009
pp. 5-6
In this paper we propose a Multi-Channel Medium Access scheme with the aim to enable efficient Dynamic Spectrum Access. Two are the remarkable features of our solution: first, it is completely distributed, and second, it does not need dedicated spectrum re...
