Outline l.jpg


  • Open Mobile Access Network (OMAN)

  • Requirements for PHY

  • UWB as PHY

  • UWB Domain Parameters

  • Current work

Whyless com l.jpg

  • Cofunded by European Union

  • Current paradigmatic chain

    • Infrastructure – Service – Terminal (user)

    • Rigid: prevent a quick response to changing user needs and business models

  • Open Mobile Access Network (OMAN) paradigm

    • Efficient information transport

    • Modern, small scale, electronic business, evolutionary growth

    • Decouples user, info transport resources, content provision service

  • Goal: ‘standardize’ a new commodity dealing with the transportation of electronic information

Oman concepts l.jpg
OMAN Concepts

  • Administratively independent IP domains

    • external characterization of traffic in terms of QoS parameters

  • Virtual delay (d)

    • Network commodity

    • Standard measure of the level of the service

  • Differentiated Services (DiffServ) compliant approach to guarantee QoS (RFC 2475)

  • Usage-based pricing

    • Actually used and/or reserved network resources

    • QoS charge beyond the flat access charge

Entities involved l.jpg
Entities involved

  • End Users

    • Consumers needing service

  • Network Service Providers (NSPs)

    • Provide the network infrastructure

  • Network Resource Manager (NRM)

    • Manage the domains owned by the NSP

    • Guarantee a set of edge-to-edge services over domain

  • Application Service Providers (ASPs)

    • Application service and IP connectivity to End User

  • Information Brokers (IBs)

    • End User and ASP mediator

    • Identifies ASPs and provides ASPs history

  • Resource Brokers (RBs)

    • ASP and NSP mediators

End to end service provisioning procedure l.jpg
End to End Service Provisioning Procedure

End user (through IB)

Identifies an ASP for a specific service

Requests service (quality of desired service and willingness to pay)

End to end service provisioning procedure9 l.jpg
End to End Service Provisioning Procedure


Transforms customer’s qualitative requirements into quantitative technical parameters

Requests RB to find the “best” path to deliver the application service (eBDL)

End to end service provisioning procedure10 l.jpg
End to End Service Provisioning Procedure


Identifies the potential domains and checks their offers with e-Table

Runs an interdomain routing algorithm

E table l.jpg

  • f(d) : Technical cost of information transfer in commodity unit

    • f(∞) = 0

  • α : Cost of each commodity unit

    • Network parameters, end points, domain policies

  • γ : Price variation factor

    • Market fluctuations

  • Bres,i = xiPs (0<xi<1)

ASP -> End user : Relevant price

End user -> ASP : Accept/Reject

ASP -> Each NAP involved : Service contract

Phy requirements l.jpg
PHY Requirements

  • Advanced and scalable radio transmission technology

  • Heterogeneous traffic with specific QoS

    • PHY should not be a bottleneck

  • Short-term trading of wireless and wired information transport resources

    • Wireless: Ownership not clear

    • On demand spectral usage shared with others

    • Synchronization probs (TDMA)

    • Combine resources with single radio front end (FDMA)

Phy layer for oman l.jpg
PHY Layer for OMAN

  • PHY layer requirements:

    • Single PHY channel has to support a wide range of net data rates

    • Re-configurable on-the-fly, to maintain QoS

    • Support continuous and packet-oriented channels

    • Mobility of terminals has to be considered.

  • PHY layer functionality

    • Coding according to the appropriate FEC scheme

    • Pulse modulation by the appropriate mapping of the encoded bits onto symbols

    • Insert/remove pilot symbols/preamble to/from the symbol train

    • Perform radio transmission and reception including synchronization

Uwb characteristics l.jpg
UWB Characteristics

  • Large data rates over short distances without allocating dedicated spectral resources

  • Software controllable parameters

    • Adapt bit rate according to terminal location, propagation condition and service requirements

    • Enables highly resilient, scalable and flexible networks

  • Other features

    • Low mean transmission power

    • Through the wall penetration

    • Precision location

    • Minimized hardware complexity

Uwb for oman l.jpg

  • Unsynchronized UWB

  • Fulfills wide range of requirements

    • End user service contracts

    • Dynamic domain requirements from NRM

    • Broad range of data rates

    • Classes of services

  • No sophisticated cell planning

    • Same frequency

  • On the fly modification of transmission parameters

    • Processing gain, TH sequence, duty cycle, temporal pulse shape, code rate

Ir uwb l.jpg

  • Spread Spectrum technology with BW in GHz

  • Impulse Radio

    • Best studied

    • Relatively simple implementation

    • Large crest factor but with low average power

  • Whole band to every service provider

    • Improved spectral efficiency

    • Wider range of rates possible

    • Same equipments for all providers

    • Disadvantages:

      • Synchronization not possible

      • Power monitoring for billing

  • Less affected by fading

Phy design considerations l.jpg
PHY design considerations

  • IR with FCC regulations

  • Centralized wireless network

  • Up- and down-link have the same air interface definition

  • Only continuous pulse transmission with hard handovers are currently considered

Uwb domain per domain behavior l.jpg
