Green communications by demand shaping and user-in-the-loop tariff-based control

Rainer Schoenen, Gurhan Bulu, Amir Mirtaheri, Halim Yanikomeroglu
2011 2011 IEEE Online Conference on Green Communications  
This paper investigates QoS-aware demand shaping and control by user-in-the-loop and tariff-based control.  ...  The green index is defined here for cellular wireless. On the other hand there is a demand which is user-generated, variable over time and space, and ever increasing at a fast pace.  ...  User in the loop The concept of user-in-the-loop was developed to control the user behavior in a wireless network so that a higher goal was achieved [9] .  ...

First Survey Results of Quantified User Behavior in User-in-the-Loop Scenarios for Sustainable Wireless Networks

Rainer Schoenen, Gurhan Bulu, Amir Mirtaheri, Tamer Beitelmal, Halim Yanikomeroglu
2012 2012 IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference (VTC Fall)  
Instead, the User-in-the-loop approach allows to shape the demand where it originates either in space or time.  ...  Any approach to engineer networks greener by better spectral efficiency only will fail to meet the global objective, if demand keeps on increasing faster than supply and efficiency.  ...  User-in-the-loop ( Figure 1 ) works by having the system including the user, wireless equipment and channel in a control loop.  ...

Economics of user-in-the-loop demand control with differentiated QoS in cellular networks

Rainer Schoenen, Halim Yanikomeroglu
2012 2012 IEEE 23rd International Symposium on Personal, Indoor and Mobile Radio Communications - (PIMRC)  
The user-in-the-loop (UIL) approach offers a solution orthogonal to the traditional supply-only view.  ...  Demand shaping is implemented by a dynamic usage-based tariff and adaptive rates depending on the load condition.  ...  User in the Loop in Space and Time The closed loop control of user behavior for either a spatial or a temporal user reaction is called user in the loop (UIL) [5] .  ...

Shake Well Before Use: Intuitive and Secure Pairing of Mobile Devices

R. Mayrhofer, H. Gellersen
2009 IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing  
Simultaneous shaking is proposed as a novel and easy-to-use mechanism for pairing of small mobile devices.  ...  We present two concrete methods, ShaVe and ShaCK, in which sensing and analysis of shaking movement is combined with cryptographic protocols for secure authentication.  ...  Any such mechanism must be human-assisted and have the user in the loop to control and/or verify that only the intended devices communicate over the out-of-band channel.  ...
