Jinghao Shi, Zhangyu Guan, Chunming Qiao, Tommaso Melodia, Dimitrios Koutsonikolas, Geoffrey Challen
2014 Proceedings of the 13th ACM Workshop on Hot Topics in Networks - HotNets-XIII  
In contrast with previous mobile devices, such as laptops, smartphones are always on but mostly idle, making them available to perform measurements that help other nearby active devices make better use  ...  The hundreds of millions of deployed smartphones provide an unprecedented opportunity to collect data to monitor, debug, and continuously adapt wireless networks to improve performance.  ...  We refer to these approaches collectively as crowdsourcing access network spectrum allocation using smartphones, or CANSAS.  ...

Game-theoretic Resource Allocation Methods for Device-to-Device (D2D) Communication [article]

Lingyang Song, Dusit Niyato, Zhu Han, Ekram Hossain
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Device-to-device (D2D) communication underlaying cellular networks allows mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to use the licensed spectrum allocated to cellular services for direct peer-to-peer  ...  The D2D devices can compete or cooperate with each other to reuse the radio resources in D2D networks. Therefore, resource allocation and access for D2D communication can be treated as games.  ...  Unlike traditional resource allocation in orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) networks, the resource allocation in D2D involves the assignment of a D2D user to proper resource blocks  ...
