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. Energy detection–based spectrum sensing with constraint region in cognitive LTE systems

    Nan Wang, Yue Gao, Fengyi Yang, Qi Bi, Weiliang Xie and Clive Parini

    Version of Record online: 24 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3171

    An error decision probability is proposed to solve the trade-off problem between detection and false alarm probability with the constraint region requirement. By implementing both Welch and wavelet-based energy detectors, the adaptive threshold-setting algorithm demonstrates a more reliable and robust sensing result for both primary users and secondary users in comparison with the conventional fixed one.

  2. Providing ultra-short latency to user-centric 5G applications at the mobile network edge

    MEC solutions need to efficiently cope with user mobility, which requires fast relocation of service instances to guarantee the desired latency requirements. In this paper, by leveraging the potential of lightweight container virtualization, we investigate a proactive service replication approach for stateless applications, to drastically reduce the time of service migration between different edge nodes. The performance evaluation shows promising results of our approach with respect to classic reactive service migration.

  3. Delay analysis of mixed fronthaul and backhaul traffic under strict priority queueing discipline in a 5G packet transport network

    Apurva Gowda, José Alberto Hernández, David Larrabeiti and Leonid Kazovsky

    In this paper, we analyze and simulate fronthaul flows arriving at the packet switch assuming strict priority for the fronthaul queue. We propose a fronthaul frame aggregation strategy to improve the packet transmission efficiency while keeping the average fronthaul queueing delay and jitter constant regardless of the percentage of fronthaul traffic. We show that the optimal number of basic frames to aggregate is between 3-10 frames assuming the Common Public Radio Interface protocol.

  4. Overlay spectrum sharing for device-to-device communications in two-way cellular networks with nodes mobility

    Version of Record online: 17 MAR 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/ett.3164

    A three-phase overlay spectrum sharing scheme is proposed for device-to-device (D2D) communications in a bidirectional cellular network. Herein, a pair of D2D users facilitates relaying to the cellular nodes, and in return, they get the opportunity to exchange their own information by exploiting the same cellular spectrum. With this, the two bidirectional communications can be realized in three time phases by using SC technique at both cellular nodes and decode-and-forward strategy at both D2D users.

  5. Unified analysis of energy harvesting–based MIMO relay wireless systems over Nakagami-m fading channels

    This paper performs a unified analysis of energy harvesting (EH)-based multiinput multioutput relay wireless systems associated with various multiinput multioutput schemes and EH protocols over Nakagami-m fading channels. We derive exact and approximated closed-form expressions for throughput in both delay-tolerant and delay-limited transmission modes. Optimal energy-harvesting time and optimal power-splitting ratio associated with different EH protocols to achieve maximum throughput are also analysed. Additionally, we derive closed-form expression for bit-error rate, which facilitates the evaluation of the system performance.
