About Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies

Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (ETT), formerly known as European Transactions on Telecommunications (ETT), has the following aims:

  • to attract cutting-edge publications from leading researchers and research groups around the world
  • to become a highly cited source of timely research findings in emerging fields of telecommunications
  • to limit revision and publication cycles to a few months and thus significantly increase attractiveness to publish
  • to become the leading journal for publishing the latest developments in telecommunications

  1. Optimal power allocation for relay-based cooperative communication systems with energy harvesting

    In this paper, the 3-node Gaussian relay channel with decode-and-forward relaying scheme is investigated, where the source and relay harvest energy from the environment. Optimal power levels for both offline and online cases are obtained. In offline case, noncausal knowledge of the harvested energy and channel states is available while in the online case only the casual knowledge of the harvested energy and channel states are used. The performance of the system in both cases is evaluated using computer simulations.

  2. Probabilistic-based secrecy rate maximisation for MIMOME wiretap channels: Towards novel convexification procedures

    According to the concentration measurement inequalities, we technically provide 2 tight and observably more efficient asymptotic bounds for a general paradigm in relation to MIMOME-based transceivers. The philosophy behind of our work is essentially to convexify the outage probability-driven schemes, per se. We fundamentally make a comprehensive comparison among the works in connection with the absolutely central criterion convexification.

  3. Orthogonal superimposed training design for doubly selective channel estimation using basis expansion models

    Because of the increasing demand on data rate and mobility of users, wireless channels are characterized by frequency-selectivity and time-selectivity. The accurate acquirement of channel state information at the receivers faces more and more challenging. Superimposed training scheme provides bandwidth-efficient transmission over doubly selective wireless fading channels and has attracted much attention recently.

  4. Energy-efficient active offloading with collaboration communication and power allocations for heterogeneous ultradense networks

    This paper proposes the auction theory–based active green offloading for energy efficient objectives, which provides flexible user associations for heterogeneous ultradense networks. Aiming to guarantee the offloaded user performances and decrease interferences, the collaboration communications are explored with introducing the strongest interfering base station into the coordinated transmission base station set. Moreover, the supermodel game–based power allocation for further improvements of system energy efficiency after collaboration communications is implemented in the proposed scheme.

  5. Security architecture and scheme of user-centric ultra-dense network (UUDN)

    In the group-shared authentication method of the APG, the APG can secure, refresh, and follow the user's movement. When the UE accesses the UUDN, only one authentication is needed until the working APG is deleted.
