Cooperative access among UEs in cellular networks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper proposes the Piggyback schemes between each User Equipment (UE) in cellular networks. This scheme is able to reduce a communication traffic volume of base station by each UE cooperates with other one. Therefore, it can make a smaller load in base station. Each UE establishes an independent connection and communication in current mobile network. When a UE accesses a base station, the UE receive data from other UEs nearby by device-to-device communication and the UE sends its own uplink data with the received data in this proposed method. We name the method a 'Piggyback scheme'. Here we introduce two methods; one is 'real-time active calling based piggyback scheme'. The calling UE receives uplink data from other UEs and the UE sends the data in free white space of its own real-time active call channel while using call function in this scheme. The second one is 'Data aggregation piggyback scheme'. In this scheme, when the UE sends its own uplink data to base station, the UE informs that it can piggyback execute for nearby UEs, and the UE receives data from the nearby UEs. And the UE sends data that includes its own and other's data. And piggyback request UEs use broadcast scheme in searching piggyback execution UE and it choice the best condition piggyback execution UE every time with plural evaluation criteria. In this paper, we confirm that performances of the proposed schemes have an effect on the load reduction of cellular network as it has been shown in the simulations.
