Systems and methods for standards compatible Mobile Edge Computing (MEC), including splitting Serving gateways (SGWs) and Packet Data Network gateways (PDN-GWs) to provision sufficient resources to deploy data-plane entity instances locally at a Radio Access Network (RAN) edge with one or more cloudlets. One or more local controller nodes is deployed in one or more operator clouds, a dedicated bearer is leveraged to route traffic from the one or more cloudlets through the split SGWs and PDN-GWs, and the dedicated bearer is configured with a traffic flow template (TFT) including an Internet Protocol (IP) address of the one or more cloudlets. Efficient access to one or more MEC applications at the RAN edge is provided to one or more user devices using the dedicated bearer.

Systems and methods for managing network resources, including managing a generated virtualized data plane network using a central controller. Virtual machine (VM) resources are assigned to two or more different network functions at a local data center. Traffic is dynamically optimized based on at least one of aggregate traffic demands and quality of service (QoS) goals, and resource allocations and inter-data center (DC) bandwidth resources are determined for VMs for a plurality of services. VMs for each middlebox function and a routing plane for each service are configured based on the determined resource allocation, and flows are routed based on the resource allocation and one or more configured network paths using an overlay-routing framework.

A system and method for management of one or more grid-scale Energy Storage Systems (GSSs), including generating an optimal GSS schedule in the presence of frequency regulation uncertainties. The GSS scheduling includes determining optimal capacity deployment factors to minimize penalties for failing to provide scheduled energy and frequency regulation up/down services subject to risk constraints; generating a schedule for a GSS unit by performing co-optimization using the optimal capacity deployment factors, the co-optimization including tracking upper and/or lower bounds on a state of charge (SoC) and including the bounds as a hard constraints; and calculating risk indices based on the optimal scheduling for the GSS unit, and outputting an optimal GSS schedule if risk constraints are satisfied. A controller charges and/or discharges energy from GSS units based on the generated optimal GSS schedule.


Aspects of the present disclosure relate to methods and systems for improved energy storage systems employing batteries operating in a frequency regulation market.

A method is provided for performing downlink scheduling in Long Term Evolution-Advanced networks. The method includes assigning resource blocks and transmission modes to users such that (i) each of the users that is assigned at least one of the resource blocks is assigned only one transmission mode chosen from a finite set of transmission modes, (ii) a sum of normalized costs across all of the resource blocks that are assigned to the users is less than unity. The method further includes incorporating a resource block and transmission mode assignment for a user into downlink scheduler of a base station to cause the downlink scheduler to perform downlink scheduling in accordance with the resource block and transmission mode assignment.

In this tutorial overview, the principles, advantages, challenges, and practical requirements of optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM)-based optical access are presented, with an emphasis on orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) for application in next-generation passive optical networks (PON). General OFDM principles, including orthogonality, cyclic prefix use, frequency-domain equalization, and multiuser OFDMA are summarized, followed by an overview of various optical OFDM(A) transceiver architectures for next-generation PON. Functional requirements are outlined for high-speed digital signal processors (DSP) and data converters in OFDMA-PON. A techno-economic outlook for such a software-defined, DSP-based optical access platform is also provided. © 2006 IEEE.
