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. Tri-orthogonal polarization diversity for 5G networks

    Article first published online: 3 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3042

    Through a fundamental physical approach to tri-orthogonal antenna operation at a frequency designated to 5G networks, we show that the inclusion of a third orthogonal polarization provides orientation robustness and an overall increase in capacity performance over conventional circular polarization techniques.

    A low-delay cooperative strategy is proposed for a network with multiple sources and a single destination, which requires only a simple type of synchronisation. In this technique, we use a combination of superposition coding and network coding; hence the name superposition network coded cooperation. The results demonstrate improvement in error performance compared with other transmission schemes requiring the same transmission time as superposition network coded cooperation

  3. Overload mitigation mechanism for VoIP networks: a transport layer approach based on resource management

    Ahmadreza Montazerolghaem, Seyed Amin Hosseini Seno, Mohammad Hossein Yaghmaee and Farzad Tashtarian

    Article first published online: 21 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3038

    In this paper, a TCP protocol capability-based approach was introduced to reduce cost of rejecting new call when confronting overload and implemented on a real testbed. Results indicated the improved efficiency of proxy during overload. The reason can be that TMR method was aware of the server resources and of its preventable nature. In this method, the SIP overload was identified and controlled in the transport layer.

  4. Resource allocation and congestion control in clustered M2M communication using Q-learning

    Article first published online: 6 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3039

    A self-organized resource allocation scheme for time slots and frequency channels is proposed for a clustered M2M network based on independent learning. The advantage is the performance enhancement of MTCDs by selecting the conflict-free slots in congested scenarios using Q-learning algorithm in a distributed manner. Clustering is proposed to overcome the congestion and overload problem in M2M. The convergence capabilities are defined as convergence time, convergence probability and cumulative success rate and they are analysed with respect to different system parameters.

  5. Improving secrecy for multi-relay multi-eavesdropper wireless systems through relay selection

    Article first published online: 5 APR 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3040

    We propose both the so-called secrecy maximisation oriented relay selection (SMORS) and multi-relay oriented relay selection (MRORS) schemes to improve the physical layer security of wireless communications. It is shown that the MRORS scheme outperforms max-min relay selection schemes in terms of the intercept probability. Additionally, it is shown that with an increasing number of eavesdroppers, the intercept performance of wireless communications degrades, which can be well addressed using the SMORS and MRORS schemes through increasing the number of relays
