Low Latency Issues in Cellular Communications

This special issue of the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking is intended to present recent developments in cellular communications and in particular latency improvement technologies. The issue extends a special session in EURASIP 2012 devoted to improvements of latency aspects in cellular networks in LTE and LTE-A networks, including meshed topologies as well.

    On the delay reduction of wireless ad hoc networks with directional antennas

    It is shown that the throughput capacity of wireless ad hoc networks using omni-directional antennas (OMN networks) is significantly decreased with the increased number of nodes. One major reason lies in the inte...

    Alamouti-coded decode-and-forward protocol with optimum relay selection and power allocation for cooperative communications

    In this paper, an Alamouti-coded decode-and-forward protocol with optimum relay selection for three-user one destination cooperative communications is investigated. Particularly, we design the new protocol tha...
