Resource Allocation for Full Duplex Communication and Networks

Abstract The recent significant progress in realizing full duplex (FD) systems has opened up another promising avenue for increasing the capacity of future wireless networks. In addition to the self-interference cancelation signal processing algorithms, network protocols such as resource management are also essential in the practical design and implementation of FD wireless networks. This talk aims to present the latest development and future directions of resource allocation in different full duplex systems by exploring the network resources in different domains, including power, space, frequency, and device dimensions. Four representative application scenarios are considered: FD MIMO networks, FD cooperative networks, FD OFDMA cellular networks, and FD heterogeneous networks. Resource management problems and novel algorithms in these systems are presented, and key open research directions are discussed. Then, we will concentrate on the use of resource allocation tools (such as optimization and game theory) to analyze and design FD wireless networks.

Full duplex Radios: How to evaluate the performance

Abstract: One of the promising technologies for B5G and future WiFi is full-duplex radio, an innovation that is expected to double spectral efficiency. To realize full-duplex in practice, the main challenge is overcoming self-interference, and to do so, researchers have developed self-interference cancellation (SIC) techniques. Most prior work has evaluated link-level performances through a real-time prototype. In this talk, I will talk about software defined radio (SDR) based platforms and a new pure-software based approach to design analog active cancellation. I will also discuss a methodology to evaluation system-level performances.
