Abstract [en]

Military training radio networks typically consist of large numbers of mobile nodes and have to provide real-time (RT) communication between these nodes. This paper introduces a method on how to manage radio resources and provide Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees for heterogeneous traffic by using admission control, deterministic queuing, and scheduling methods. The proposed solution is based on the use of a RT feasibility test in the admission control and earliest deadline first (EDF) scheduling and queuing. This deterministic solution handles heterogeneous traffic through a novel combination of RT downlink and two types of RT uplink dynamic scheduling mechanisms. The uplink scheduling consists of a control packet based mechanism for sporadic RT traffic and a periodic short-latency mechanism for periodic RT traffic. The method presented in this paper is investigated by computer simulation, evaluating its performance and determining the maximum number of nodes supported, given a worst-case user scenario. To the best of our knowledge this is the first centralized protocol designed for a military training network providing application-specific RT support for heterogeneous traffic. ©2014 IEEE.

Abstract [en]

Connected devices are increasing steadily and the number of devices will in soon future be so massive that they are impacting the next generation of wireless standards and are already being considered in them. Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications and Internet of Things (IoT) sub fields of wireless communications have developed lately with their own research fields and forums. 

Military training systems are using radio networks of connected devices to provide realistic combat training with new trends of multimedia streaming and lower traffic latency requirements. To facilitate further development of the networks a research goal is formulated to target the improvement of the network in the desired direction. The research goal is to answer how to provide energy efficient wireless communications within the framework of the military training application, meeting requirements of delay, number of network nodes and power efficiency for mobile devices and is broken down to three separate research questions that are each targeted separately as below.

We have developed an admission control with real-time analysis for a single-frequency base station for mobile nodes with real-time traffic. This scope has been extended to an admission control for a multichannel base station where we also proposed a method on how to maximize the number of mobile nodes, with different traffic requirements including multimedia traffic, in the network. Finally a probabilistic model has been proposed for the Discontinuous Reception (DRX) power saving mechanism for LTE/LTE-A in the 4:th Generation (4G) telecommunications standard. It was also shown how to meet traffic delays while maximizing the power saving factor in the mobile nodes.

Abstract [en]

The number of wireless connected devices are growing exponentially and the importance of this research area is growing as well to meet the known and looming challenges and expectations. The 5:th Generation telecommunications standard is partly embodied by the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and standards to handle a big part of these devices and connections. An example within the IoT paradigm is military training systems where each system can consist of thousands of battery operated mobile devices and their shifting requirements shall be fullled in an energy-aware manner to increase battery operating times.

Military training radio networks enables realistic combat training. The services and features provided in commercial telecommunications networks are desirable in these often proprietary and task specic networks, increasing capabilities and functionalities. To facilitate the current and future R&D of LTE based networks for adoption in military training networks and services this doctoral thesis intends to provide the starting ground for the energy-aware LTE based wireless communications. The thesis first presents general solutions on how to meet traffic deadlines in wireless networks for large number of nodes, and then continues with solutions for energy-aware LTE-based communications for the User Equipments (UEs).

The work builds on the problem formulation how to provide energy-aware resource handling for LTE-based military training networks from where three research questions are derived. From the research questions we derive different hypotheses and then test these within the investigated area to answer the research questions.

The contributions of this work are within areas of resource handling and power saving for mobile devices. In the first area an admission control using deterministic analysis is proposed fullling traffic requirements for military training mobile nodes. This admission control is enhanced for multiple-channel base stations, and evaluated using mobile nodes with different heterogeneous traffic requirements. In the second part energy-awareness is in focus for LTE/LTE-A based networks. The main power saving method for LTE/LTE-A UEs, Discontinuous Reception (DRX) mechanism, is evaluated and models for DRX in Idle and Connected state are proposed including metrics for wake-up delay and power saving. Additionally a mean queuing delay analysis is proposed for a variant of the Connected state DRX. Using these models and metrics, practical design guidelines for tuning of DRX parameters are proposed, including optimization of DRX parameters for either minimizing delay or maximizing power saving.
