Patent
Telecom Italia and Polytechnic University of Turin | Date: 2017-07-12

It is disclosed a method for activating an ONU in a multi-wavelength PON. Other ONUs may be already active and transmit upstream signals to the OLT on various upstream channels. The new ONU transmits an activation signal superimposed to such upstream signals. Since the ONU may comprise an uncalibrated tunable transmitter, initially the activation signal wavelength might be different from that upon which the ONU shall be activated. The activation signal optical power is lower than the other upstream signals, so as not to impair their reception at the OLT. The OLT operates the ONUs already active on the upstream channel on which the new ONU shall be activated to suspend transmission for one or more time gaps, during which the OLT detects the activation signal. This improves the activation signal detection conditions, thereby allowing to increase its bitrate. An acceptable duration of the activation procedure is then achieved.

A method (200) is proposed for scheduling, in a radio mobile network (100), serving cell/radio resource allocation pairs (ak) for transmission of data flows (f) using Carrier Aggregation. Each serving cell/radio resource allocation pair comprises a serving cell and a radio resource thereof allocated for transmission of data flows (f) using Carrier Aggregation. At each scheduling period (k) the method (200) comprises: determining (210-220), among said data flows (f), active data flows (fa) whose transmission is not yet completed at the current scheduling period (k), and iterating, for each active data flow (fa): - determining (225) candidate serving cells (sc,Sak) adapted to provide transmission of the active data flows (fa); - for each radio resource of each candidate serving cell (sc,Sak),determining (230) a signal to noise-plus-interference ratio estimate (SINRrk(sc,u)) for that active data flow (fa); - associating (235), to each candidate serving cell/radio resource pair, a weighting parameter (W) according to said signal to noise-plus-interference ratio estimate (SINRrk(sc,u)) and to an indication of the interference caused to other active data flows (fa); - determining (240-245), among said candidate serving cell/radio resource pairs, a potential allocation pair (sc*,r*) based on the weighting parameter (W) associated with the candidate serving cell/radio resource pair, and calculating (250) a potential amount (dtemp) of data that can be transmitted by the allocation pairs so far determined and the potential allocation pair, and - identifying (260) said potential allocation pair (sc*,r*) as allocation pair (ak) if (255) said potential amount of data (dtemp) is higher than an overall amount of data (dcurr) that can be transmitted by the allocation pairs so far determined for all the active data flows (fa).

Agency: European Commission | Branch: H2020 | Program: SGA-RIA | Phase: FETFLAGSHIP | Award Amount: 89.00M | Year: 2016

This project is the second in the series of EC-financed parts of the Graphene Flagship. The Graphene Flagship is a 10 year research and innovation endeavour with a total project cost of 1,000,000,000 euros, funded jointly by the European Commission and member states and associated countries. The first part of the Flagship was a 30-month Collaborative Project, Coordination and Support Action (CP-CSA) under the 7th framework program (2013-2016), while this and the following parts are implemented as Core Projects under the Horizon 2020 framework. The mission of the Graphene Flagship is to take graphene and related layered materials from a state of raw potential to a point where they can revolutionise multiple industries. This will bring a new dimension to future technology a faster, thinner, stronger, flexible, and broadband revolution. Our program will put Europe firmly at the heart of the process, with a manifold return on the EU investment, both in terms of technological innovation and economic growth. To realise this vision, we have brought together a larger European consortium with about 150 partners in 23 countries. The partners represent academia, research institutes and industries, which work closely together in 15 technical work packages and five supporting work packages covering the entire value chain from materials to components and systems. As time progresses, the centre of gravity of the Flagship moves towards applications, which is reflected in the increasing importance of the higher - system - levels of the value chain. In this first core project the main focus is on components and initial system level tasks. The first core project is divided into 4 divisions, which in turn comprise 3 to 5 work packages on related topics. A fifth, external division acts as a link to the parts of the Flagship that are funded by the member states and associated countries, or by other funding sources. This creates a collaborative framework for the entire Flagship.
