Caching the popular multimedia content is a promising way to unleash the ultimate potential of wireless networks. In this paper, we contribute to proposing and analyzing the cachebased content delivery in a three-tier heterogeneous network (HetNet), where base stations (BSs), relays and device-to-device (D2D) pairs are included. We advocate to proactively cache the popular contents in the relays and parts of the users with caching ability when the network is off-peak. The cached contents can be reused for frequent access to offload the cellular network traffic. The node locations are first modeled as mutually independent Poisson Point Processes (PPPs) and the corresponding content access protocol is developed. The average ergodic rate and outage probability in the downlink are then analyzed theoretically. We further derive the throughput and the delay based on the multiclass processor-sharing queue model and the continuous-time Markov process. According to the critical condition of the steady state in the HetNet, the maximum traffic load and the global throughput gain are investigated. Moreover, impacts of some key network characteristics, e.g., the heterogeneity of multimedia contents, node densities and the limited caching capacities, on the system performance are elaborated to provide a valuable insight.
In this paper, the design of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) in a multiple-input-single-output (MISO) downlink scenario is investigated. The impact of the recently developed concept, quasi-degradation, on NOMA downlink transmission is first studied. Then, a Hybrid NOMA (H-NOMA) precoding algorithm, based on this concept, is proposed. By exploiting the properties of H-NOMA precoding, a low-complexity sequential user pairing algorithm (SUPA) is consequently developed, to further improve the overall system performance. Both analytical and numerical results are provided to demonstrate the performance of the H-NOMA precoding through the average power consumption and outage probability, while conventional schemes, as dirty-paper coding and zero-forcing beamforming, are used as benchmarking.
Abstract-The various wireless networks have made the ambient radio frequency signals around the world. Wireless information and power transfer enables the devices to recycle energy from these ambient radio frequency signals and process information simultaneously. In this paper, we develop a wireless information and power transfer protocol in two-way amplifyand-forward relaying channels, where two sources exchange information via an energy harvesting relay node. The relay node collects energy from the received signals and uses it to provide the transmission power to forward the received signals. We analytically derive the exact expressions of the outage probability, the ergodic capacity and the finite-SNR diversity-multiplexing trade-off (DMT). Furthermore, the tight closed-form upper and lower bounds of the outage probability and the ergodic capacity are then developed. Moreover, the impact of the power splitting ratio is also evaluated and analyzed. Finally, we show that compared to the non-cooperative relaying scheme, the proposed protocol is a green solution to offer higher transmission rate and more reliable communication without consuming additional resource.
