  • Network as a Service for Next Generation Internet (Duan, Q. and Wang, S.;
           2017) [Book Review]
    • Authors: Piotr Borylo;
      Pages: 7 - 7
      Abstract: he concept of delivering Network as a Service (NaaS) is enabled mainly by three approaches, which combined are attracting more and more attention: Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and Software Defined Networking (SDN). This book addresses all of these three topics, and therefore is a timely work presenting up-to-date research areas. The book is divided into 16 chapters. The book is a valuable source of information about integration of SOA, NFV, and SDN regarding the development of the NaaS concept. Basic ideas, principles and architectures are carefully described for most of the aspects. Such preliminary information is often followed by practical considerations, optimization problems, or numerical results. A broad perspective of addressed aspects is another advantage of the book, making it an interdisciplinary work. The most important drawback of the book regards the fact that each chapter forms a separate work. Therefore, some basic ideas are presented more than once in the book. This especially concerns introductory sections of chapters. To sum up, even taking into account the mentioned minor drawbacks, the book is recommended for readers interested in network softwarization and cloudification processes.

      Abstract: The seven articles in this special section examine how 5G mobile communications will impact the smart healthcare industry. With the advancement of 5G communications, smart or "connected" healthcare is getting tremendous attention from academia, governments, industry, and the healthcare community. This will include, for example, 5G wireless networks, mobile edge computing (MEC), software-defined networking (SDN), and cloud radio access networks (C-RANs) can play a significant role in smart healthcare by offering better insight of heterogeneous healthcare media content to support aff ordable and high-quality patient care. While researchers have been making advances in the study of next-generation networking and healthcare services individually, very little attention has been given to make cost-effective and aff ordable smart healthcare solutions. Connected or smart healthcare has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our society.

      Abstract: Recent advances in wireless networking and big data technologies, such as 5G networks, medical big data analytics, and the Internet of Things, along with recent developments in wearable computing and artificial intelligence, are enabling the development and implementation of innovative diabetes monitoring systems and applications. Due to the life-long and systematic harm suffered by diabetes patients, it is critical to design effective methods for the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes. Based on our comprehensive investigation, this article classifies those methods into Diabetes 1.0 and Diabetes 2.0, which exhibit deficiencies in terms of networking and intelligence. Thus, our goal is to design a sustainable, cost-effective, and intelligent diabetes diagnosis solution with personalized treatment. In this article, we first propose the 5G-Smart Diabetes system, which combines the state-of-the-art technologies such as wearable 2.0, machine learning, and big data to generate comprehensive sensing and analysis for patients suffering from diabetes. Then we present the data sharing mechanism and personalized data analysis model for 5G-Smart Diabetes. Finally, we build a 5G-Smart Diabetes testbed that includes smart clothing, smartphone, and big data clouds. The experimental results show that our system can effectively provide personalized diagnosis and treatment suggestions to patients.

      Pages: 24 - 32
      Abstract: With the evolution of the Internet of Things, mutual sharing of information becomes easy among various smart devices across the globe. In such an environment, smart healthcare also needs to be expedited with an aim to provide remote diagnosis to patients located across the globe. However, as the sensitive information about a patient travels using an open channel (i.e., the Internet), there are chances of misusing this information. Hence, there is a requirement for a strong crypto mechanism for securely processing smart healthcare data. Most of the solutions reported in the literature use heavy computation-based solutions for providing security to smart healthcare data, which may not be suitable in view of less resources for modern smart devices. In this article, we propose a novel lattice-based secure cryptosystem for smart healthcare (LSCSH) in future smart cities. LSCSH uses a lightweight key exchange and an authentication mechanism at several stages. The proposed scheme has been evaluated with respect to the communication and computation costs in comparison to the other competitive schemes. The results obtained prove the efficacy of the proposed scheme in comparison to the existing schemes.

  • Medical Image Forgery Detection for Smart Healthcare
    • Authors: Ahmed Ghoneim;Ghulam Muhammad;Syed Umar Amin;Brij Gupta;
      Pages: 33 - 37
      Abstract: With the invention of new communication technologies, new features and facilities are provided in a smart healthcare framework. The features and facilities aim to provide a seamless, easy-to-use, accurate, and real-time healthcare service to clients. As health is a sensitive issue, it should be taken care of with utmost security and caution. This article proposes a new medical image forgery detection system for the healthcare framework to verify that images related to healthcare are not changed or altered. The system works on a noise map of an image, applies a multi-resolution regression filter on the noise map, and feeds the output to support-vector-machine-based and extreme-learning-based classifiers. The noise map is created in an edge computing resource, while the filtering and classification are done in a core cloud computing resource. In this way, the system works seamlessly and in real time. The bandwidth requirement of the proposed system is also reasonable.

      Pages: 46 - 52
      Abstract: Understanding essential factors that influence urban citizens' workout activities, both aerobic and training, is important for public policy development and city planning. Mobile fitness app usage data, which describes who works out at what time and place, provides a good opportunity to figure out these key factors that influence human workout activities. This article investigates the mobile fitness app usage data from more than 14,000 cellular towers and 4000 users. Based on solid analysis, we find that temporal factors, such as the day of the week and the time of day, affect human workout activities, while location is another key factor. In addition, mobility factors, such as moving range and regularity of mobility, also influence human workout activities. Finally, personal income is another fundamental factor that we find influences human workout activities.

      Pages: 53 - 59
      Abstract: Smart healthcare, instead of traditional healthcare, has attracted tremendous attention all over the world, and calls for integrated design bringing together interdisciplinary technological approaches and solutions with the aim of supporting affordable and high-quality patient care. With the increasing number of visually impaired people, including the blind, the elderly, and patients with eye diseases, it is vital to help them explore their outside environment with the assistance of smart technologies so that they can adapt to the environment more easily. The smart indoor anti-collision system is one typical application. Previous works normally use video monitors or deployed sensors to provide outside environment information for visually impaired people. However, these methods suffer from privacy disclosure and inconvenience. In this article, we present IAAS, a smart indoor anti-collision system based on RFID, which identifies and tracks passive RFID tags by analyzing the received backscatter signals. We extract RSSI based on the LWLR algorithm and phase profiles as fingerprints to help the user guide from obstacles without observations of eyes. Experiments are conducted to verify our system, and results show that IAAS could achieve high accuracy of 94 percent in obstacle avoidance.

      Pages: 60 - 65
      Abstract: The advancement of next-generation network technologies provides a huge improvement in healthcare facilities. Technologies such as 5G, edge computing, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things realize smart healthcare that a client can have anytime, anywhere, and in real time. Edge computing offers useful computing resources at the edge of the network to maintain low-latency and real-time computing. In this article, we propose a smart healthcare framework using edge computing. In the framework, we develop a voice disorder assessment and treatment system using a deep learning approach. A client provides his or her voice sample captured by smart sensors, and the sample goes to the edge computing for initial processing. Then the edge computing sends data to a core cloud for further processing. The assessment and management are controlled by a service provider through a cloud manager. Once the automatic assessment is done, the decision is sent to specialists, who prescribe appropriate treatment to the clients. The proposed system achieves 98.5 percent accuracy and 99.3 percent sensitivity using the Saarbrucken Voice Disorder database.

      Abstract: The nine articles in this special section focus on amateur drone surveillance system implementation issues such as software-defined radio solutions for amateur drone surveillance, context-aware amateur drone localization, and moving target surveillance based on a cooperative drone network. The drone can be the key enabler to provide high-speed wireless communication for fifth-generation systems. But its deployment poses several public safety threats to national institutions such as atomic plants, historical places, and presidential houses because it may carry explosive and destructive chemicals or surveillance equipment. To cope with these security threats, surveillance drone deployment is required for counter-surveillance of amateur drones. The main motivation of deploying surveillance drones is to keep an eye on the amateur drones, which may lead to serious disasters if no precautionary measures are taken. The Feature Topic articles in this issue highlight the most recent advances in amateur drone survelliance system implementation issues such as software- defined radio solutions for amateur drone surveillance, context-aware amateur drone localization, and moving target surveillance based on a cooperative drones network.

      Abstract: In recent years, drones have undergone tremendous development. Due to the low price and ease of use, drones have been widely utilized in many application scenarios, which potentially pose great threats to public security and personal privacy. To mitigate these threats, it is necessary to deploy anti-drone systems in sensitive areas to detect, localize, and defend against the intruding drones. In this article, we provide a comprehensive overview of the technologies utilized for drone surveillance and the existing anti-drone systems. Then we develop an anti-drone system at Zhejiang University, named ADS-ZJU, which combines multiple passive surveillance technologies to realize drone detection, localization, and radio frequency jamming. Furthermore, we discuss the challenges and open research issues in such a system.

      Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles, also known as drones, are expected to play major roles in future smart cities, for example, by delivering goods and merchandise, serving as mobile hotspots for broadband wireless access, and maintaining surveillance and security. The goal of this survey article is to study various potential cyber and physical threats that may arise from the use of UAVs, and subsequently review various ways to detect, track, and interdict malicious drones. In particular, we review techniques that rely on ambient radio frequency signals (emitted from UAVs), radars, acoustic sensors, and computer vision techniques for detection of malicious UAVs. We present some early experimental and simulation results on range estimation of UAVs and receding horizon tracking of UAVs. Finally, we summarize common techniques that are considered for interdiction of UAVs.

      Abstract: With the development of better links, enhanced coverage, comprehensive data resources, and network system stability, the cooperative network formed by wireless sensor networks and unmanned aerial vehicles is envisioned to provide immediate and long-term benefits in military and civilian fields. Previous works mainly focus on how to use UAVs to assist WSNs in sensing and data collection jobs, or target localization with a single data source in surveillance systems, while the potential of multi-UAV sensor networks has not been fully explored. To this end, we propose a new cooperative network platform and system architecture of multi-UAV surveillance. First we propose the design concepts of a multi- UAV cooperative resource scheduling and task assignment scheme based on the animal colony perception method. Second, we provide the moving small target recognition technique and localization and tracking model using the fusion of multiple data sources. In addition, this article discusses the establishment of suitable algorithms based on machine learning due to the complexity of the monitoring area. Finally, experiments of recognition and tracking of multiple moving targets are addressed, which are monitored by multi- UAV and sensors.

      Pages: 90 - 97
      Abstract: The advancement of the micro-electro-mechanical sensory industry and open source autopilot stacks, have dramatically reduced the cost and difficulty of making highly maneuverable UAVs. Such ease in flying drones has caused concerns about privacy, public safety, and security. One of the major threats is inadequate control of flying small drones over sensitive areas. In this research, we address this problem through a dual approach: detection and eviction. We propose a distributed system to identify the appearance and the approximate position of unwelcome drones using a wireless acoustic sensor network and machine learning algorithms. Next, we integrate software defined radio transceivers along with machine learning algorithm into a framework to specify and decode the UAV's telemetry protocols. Using decoded information, we can then send control commands to evict the trespassing drone away before sending aggressive surveillance UAVs.

  • Designing UAV Surveillance Frameworks for Smart City and Extensive Ocean
           with Differential Perspectives
    • Authors: Hyunbum Kim;Lynda Mokdad;Jalel Ben-Othman;
      Pages: 98 - 104
      Abstract: In this article, we design differential frameworks for monitoring smart city and extensive ocean by multiple heterogeneous smart UAVs. Since the requirements and fundamental environments between smart city and extensive ocean are quite different, we consider two differential strategies. For smart city, we introduce a tight plane-based framework that utilizes the existing public transportation including public buses, city trains, and their routes to provide time-sensitive surveillance. For extensive ocean, we develop a loose hierarchical-based framework. To support seamless surveillance over extensive ocean, we use three types of UAVs, which allows replenishment among heterogeneous UAVs at different layers through airborne docking. Moreover, the research challenges and open issues related to the differentiated infrastructures are presented.

      Pages: 106 - 111
      Abstract: Amateur drones are enjoying great popularity in recent years due to the wide commercial diffusion of small, rather low-cost devices. More and more user-friendly, easy-to-pilot aerial and terrestrial drones are available off the shelf, and people can even remotely pilot them using their smartphones. This situation brings up the problem of keeping unauthorized drones away from private or sensitive areas, where they can represent a personal or public threat. With this motivation, after a survey of the existing solutions, we propose a WiFi-based approach aimed at detecting nearby aerial or terrestrial devices by performing statistical fingerprint analysis on wireless traffic. This novel detection technique, tested in a variety of real-life scenarios, proved able to efficiently detect and identify intruder drones in all the considered experimental setups, making it a promising unmanned aerial vehicle detection approach in the framework of amateur drone surveillance.

      Abstract: This article presents an overview on passive drone detection. An SDR-based, portable universal software radio peripheral (USRP) prototype is developed for detection in two scenarios. In the scenario in which a drone communicates with the ground controller, the cyclostationarity signature of the drone signal and pseudo Doppler principle are employed. For the scenario in which a drone is not sending any signal, a micro Doppler signature generated by the RF signal is exploited for detection and identification.

    • Authors: Vishal Sharma;Dushantha Nalin K. Jayakody;Ilsun You;Ravinder Kumar;Jun Li;
      Pages: 120 - 128
      Abstract: Drone swarming involves multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which are able to manoeuver autonomously, providing a vast range of surveillance applications such as traffic evaluations, driver monitoring, disaster management, temporary network support, and pedestrian tracking. All these applications are an integral part of urban surveillance. In other words, cooperation between multiple drones can facilitate urban surveillance while being able to provide high-quality 3D visualization of the surroundings. This 3D representation is driven by the initiation of accurate and non-overlapping waypoints. Such efficient localization depends on the type of context and its security validation by the receiving entities. For example, a highly burdened context with negligible security is of limited use. This article presents a novel solution that is capable of securing the context information for sharing 3D waypoints between UAVs. The proposed approach achieves optimal localization through hierarchical context- aware aspect-oriented Petri nets while being powered by a novel drone context-exchange protocol for security validations.

           Vehicles: Fuzzy-Logic-Based Approach
    • Authors: Fekher Khelifi;Abbas Bradai;Kamal Singh;Mohamed Atri;
      Pages: 129 - 133
      Abstract: Localization and energy efficiency is very important for UAVs. In this work, we propose a new mechanism for data routing based on localization in GPS-denied or GPS-challenged areas. The proposed mechanism relies on a weighted centroid localization technique, where the position of unknown UAV nodes are calculated using fuzzy logic. The UAV nodes are organized into clusters. The proposed localization algorithm first localizes the UAVs, then elects the next cluster head in order to minimize the energy consumption of the whole network and consequently increase its lifetime. Evaluation of the proposal shows that it is more efficient than the existing solutions in terms of energy consumption, localization accuracy, localization time, and data transmission.

      Pages: 134 - 135
      Abstract: The seven papers included in this special section focus on Cognitive radio ad hoc networks (CRAHNS). CRAHNs are equipped with the intrinsic capabilities of cognition and self-organization, providing a flexible spectrum- aware communication paradigm in wireless networks. Since available spectrum mostly manifests as several discontinuous frequency ranges, CRAHNs should be able to operate on multiple frequency channels. Multi-channel CRAHNs can alleviate interference and improve the spectrum utilization with greater fl exibility for channel access. The promising applications of multi-channel CRAHNs include large-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) communication, the Internet of Things (IoTs), high-density Wi-Fi, and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) swarms. Multi-channel CRAHNs impose unique challenges due to the distributed dynamic network topology and the temporal or spatial variations in spectrum availability. To overcome these challenges, fundamental problems in multi-channel CRAHNs have to be carefully resolved with respect to spectrum sensing, convention resolution, network topology maintenance, and application support.

  • Compressed Wideband Spectrum Sensing: Concept, Challenges, and Enablers
    • Authors: Bechir Hamdaoui;Bassem Khalfi;Mohsen Guizani;
      Pages: 136 - 141
      Abstract: Spectrum sensing research has mostly been focusing on narrowband access, and not until recently have researchers started looking at wideband spectrum. Broadly speaking, wideband spectrum sensing approaches can be categorized into two classes: Nyquist-rate and sub-Nyquistrate sampling approaches. Nyquist-rate approaches have major practical issues that question their suitability for real-time applications; this is mainly because their high-rate sampling requirement calls for complex hardware and signal processing algorithms that incur significant delays. Sub-Nyquistrate approaches, on the other hand, are more appealing due to their less stringent sampling rate requirement. Although various concepts have been investigated to ensure sub-Nyquist rates, compressive sampling theory is definitely one concept that has attracted much interest. This article explains and illustrates how compressive sampling has been leveraged to improve wideband spectrum sensing by enabling spectrum occupancy recovery with sub-Nyquist sampling rates. The article also introduces new ideas with great potential for further wideband spectrum sensing enhancements, and identifies key future research challenges and directions that remain to be investigated.

  • Cooperative Spectrum Sensing as Image Segmentation: A New Data Fusion
    • Authors: Keyu Wu;Min Tang;Chintha Tellambura;Dongtang Ma;
      Pages: 142 - 148
      Abstract: Reliable and efficient identification of spectrum access opportunities is crucial for cognitive radio ad hoc networks (CRAHNs). A promising method to improve sensing reliability is CSS, where sensing data from multiple secondary users is combined to facilitate decision making. However, the performance of CSS algorithms in CRAHNs is limited by two challenges. First, the spectrum occupancy status in CRAHNs is spatially heterogeneous. Second, malfunctioning nodes or malicious attackers may falsify the true sensing results. To handle both these challenges, inspired by image segmentation in computer vision, we propose a novel graph-cut CSS algorithm. This algorithm is robust in the presence of false sensing data reports, computationally efficient (with polynomial worst case time complexity), and can be implemented distributively. Theoretically, it can be regarded as a new data fusion scheme that is generalized from classical likelihood ratio tests when sensing information is fully exploited, or from the majority fusion rule, when thresholded sensing information is utilized.

    • Authors: Yi-Tang Wang;Guu-Chang Yang;Min-Kuan Chang;Wing C. Kwong;
      Pages: 149 - 155
      Abstract: In this article, the channel hopping (CH) method for the rendezvous process of secondary users in multi-channel CRAHNs is overviewed. With the evolution of the Internet of Things, design criteria of CH sequences targeting these applications are discussed. While channel collision among CH sequences is inherent in realistic CRAHNs, most prior works focused on sequence designs without addressing the channel collision problem. Hence, the concept of contention resolution in CRAHNs is introduced in this article, and a "multi-round" contention resolution mechanism is studied. To quantify the performance, the RS rate of the mechanism is presented and validated with computer simulation. Finally, the rendezvous time savings, which, in turn, can enhance data throughput, of the multi-round mechanism over a single-round one are investigated.

      Abstract: CR enables dynamic spectrum access to utilize licensed spectrum when it is idle. CR technology is applied to wireless ad hoc and sensor networks to form CRAHNs and CRSNs, respectively. Clustering is an efficient topology management technique to regulate communication and allocate spectrum resources by CR capabilities of nodes in CRAHNs and CRSNs. In this article, we thoroughly investigate the benefits and functionalities of clustering such as topology, spectrum, and energy management in these networks. We also overview motivations for and challenges of clustering in CRAHNs and CRSNs. Existing clustering schemes are reviewed and compared. We conclude by revealing key considerations and possible solutions for spectrum-aware clustering in multi-channel CRAHNs and CRSNs.

      Pages: 164 - 171
      Abstract: The increasing popularity of wireless services and devices necessitates high bandwidth requirements; however, spectrum resources are not only limited but also heavily underutilized. Multiple license channels that support the same levels of QoS are desirable to resolve the problems posed by the scarcity and inefficient use of spectrum resources in multi-channel cognitive radio networks (MCRNs). One reason is that multimedia services and applications have distinct, stringent QoS requirements. However, due to a lack of coordination between primary and secondary users, identifying the QoS levels supported over available licensed channels has proven to be problematic and has yet to be attempted. This article presents a novel Bayesian non-parametric channel clustering scheme, which identifies the QoS levels supported over available license channels. The proposed scheme employs the infinite Gaussian mixture model and collapsed Gibbs sampler to identify the QoS levels from the feature space of the bit rate, packet delivery ratio, and packet delay variation of licensed channels. Moreover, the real measurements of wireless data traces and comparisons with baseline clustering schemes are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme.

    • Authors: Yan Shi;Hongguang Sun;Min Sheng;Jiandong Li;Xuan Li;
      Pages: 172 - 179
      Abstract: In multi-channel CRAHNs, the spectrum efficiency can be improved via spectrum reutilization by secondary users. However, unpredictable transmission interruptions may occur when primary users reclaim their channels, resulting in the partition of the CRAHN and the failure of the end-to-end transmission. Therefore, in CRAHNs, considering the activities of primary users, how to maintain a connected network topology is fundamental in ensuring reliable secondary communications. Even though one licensed channel is reclaimed by a PU, multiple SUs may be affected. The situation gets even worse when multiple channels are reclaimed simultaneously. In this article, we elaborate on k-channel connectivity in the context of multi-channel CRAHNs. We first introduce the preliminaries of topology connectivity with the focus on the k-channel connectivity and then discuss the challenges of robust topology control by guaranteeing the k-channel connectivity in both interweave mode and underlay mode. After reviewing the recent research on topology control algorithms, we propose a distributed k-channel connectivity algorithm in underlay mode to minimize the number of required channels while satisfying the k-channel connectivity and conflict-free property. Next, we illustrate the potential benefits of k-channel connectivity through simulation results. Finally, possible directions for future research are pointed out in the conclusions.

      Abstract: With the development of mCRAHNs, more emerging mobile applications and services could be foreseen and applied in our human society. In this article, we propose an emotion-aware cognitive system (ECS), which aims to provide a systematic approach that can facilitate deployment of different emotion-aware mobile applications in mCRAHNs. ECS is constructed to provide multidimensional emotional data collection and processing approaches for mobile applications working in mCRAHNs. Also, we present a flow of emotion-aware solution designed on ECS, and highlight the implementation and orchestration of several key technologies and schemes we apply in this system for different emotion-aware mobile applications in runtime. In addition, we demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed ECS by presenting a novel emotion-aware mobile application, iSmile, and evaluate the system performance based on this application.

  • Cognitive Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access with Cooperative Relaying: A New
           Wireless Frontier for 5G Spectrum Sharing
    • Authors: Lu Lv;Jian Chen;Qiang Ni;Zhiguo Ding;Hai Jiang;
      Pages: 188 - 195
      Abstract: Two emerging technologies toward 5G wireless networks, namely non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and cognitive radio (CR), will provide more efficient utilization of wireless spectrum in the future. In this article, we investigate the integration of NOMA with CR into a holistic system, namely a cognitive NOMA network, for more intelligent spectrum sharing. Design principles of cognitive NOMA networks are perfectly aligned to functionality requirements of 5G wireless networks, such as high spectrum efficiency, massive connectivity, low latency, and better fairness. Three different cognitive NOMA architectures are presented, including underlay NOMA networks, overlay NOMA networks, and CR-inspired NOMA networks. To address inter-network and intra-network interference, which largely degrade the performance of cognitive NOMA networks, cooperative relaying strategies are proposed. For each cognitive NOMA architecture, our proposed cooperative relaying strategy shows its potential to significantly lower outage probabilities. We discuss open challenges and future research directions on implementation of cognitive NOMA networks.

  • Out-of-Band Radiation from Large Antenna Arrays

      Pages: 196 - 203
      Abstract: The OOB radiation from large arrays with nonlinear hardware has a different radiation pattern than the beamformed in-band signal. This is the main difference between the OOB radiation from large arrays and from well-studied legacy systems. Beamforming might focus the OOB radiation in certain directions but also significantly reduce the total power that has to be transmitted. For cost and power-consumption reasons, large arrays might have to be built from low-complexity hardware without advanced precompensation for linearization, which increases the relative amount of OOB radiation. Given that large arrays will be used in future base stations, a correct understanding of the OOB radiation is crucial to specify appropriate linearity requirements for the hardware. We show that the OOB radiation from large arrays varies little between coherence times; it is isotropic in many cases; and when it is beamformed, it is directed toward the served user in a very narrow beam with an array gain equal to or less than that of the in-band signal. We draw the conclusion that, compared to legacy systems, less stringent linearity requirements can be used in many systems with large arrays by virtue of the lower transmit power needed

      Abstract: Many use cases of UAVs require beyond visual LOS communications. Mobile networks offer wide-area, high-speed, and secure wireless connectivity, which can enhance control and safety of UAV operations and enable beyond visual LOS use cases. In this article, we share some of our experience in LTE connectivity for low-altitude small UAVs. We first identify the typical airborne connectivity requirements and characteristics, highlight the different propagation conditions for UAVs and mobiles on the ground with measurement and ray tracing results, and present simulation results to shed light on the feasibility of providing LTE connectivity for UAVs. We also present several ideas on potential enhancements for improving LTE connectivity performance and identify fruitful avenues for future research.

  • Low RF-Complexity Technologies to Enable Millimeter-Wave MIMO with Large
           Antenna Array for 5G Wireless Communications
    • Authors: Xinyu Gao;Linglong Dai;Akbar M. Sayeed;
      Pages: 211 - 217
      Abstract: mmWave MIMO with large antenna array has attracted considerable interest from the academic and industry communities, as it can provide larger bandwidth and higher spectrum efficiency. However, with hundreds of antennas, the number of RF chains required by mmWave MIMO is also huge, leading to unaffordable hardware cost and power consumption in practice. In this article, we investigate low RF-complexity technologies to solve this bottleneck. We first review the evolution of low RF-complexity technologies from microwave frequencies to mmWave frequencies. Then, we discuss two promising low RF-complexity technologies for mmWave MIMO systems in detail, that is PAHP and LAHP, including their principles, advantages, challenges, and recent results. We compare the performance of these two technologies to draw some insights about how they can be deployed in practice. Finally, we conclude this article and point out some future research directions in this area.

  • Traffic Remapping Attacks in Ad Hoc Networks
    • Authors: Szymon Szott;Jerzy Konorski;
      Pages: 218 - 224
      Abstract: Ad hoc networks rely on the mutual cooperation of stations. As such, they are susceptible to selfish attacks that abuse network mechanisms. Class-based QoS provisioning mechanisms, such as the EDCA function of IEEE 802.11, are particularly prone to traffic remapping attacks, which may bring an attacker better QoS without exposing it to easy detection. Such attacks have been studied in wireless LANs, whereas their impact in multihop settings is less known. We provide a definition of traffic remapping attacks, highlighting their ease of execution, and analyze their impact in multihop networks. Suitable detection methods and defense measures are also discussed and evaluated.
