D2D Offloading for Statistical QoS Provisionings Over 5G Multimedia Mobile Wireless Networks Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2019 IEEE. The device-to-device (D2D) communication is an efficient mobile-data offloading technique to significantly improve the cellular base station (BS) spectrum efficiency in the fifth generation (5G) wireless networks by enabling mobile users to directly receive the multimedia data from a nearby mobile users through D2D communication. On the other hand, D2D multimedia-data offloading imposes the new modeling challenges in characterizing the statistical delay-bounded quality of service (QoS) provisioning over two-hop tandem wireless links when a mobile user receives its requested data from the cellular BS and relays it to the next mobile user which is requesting the same data via D2D communications. Thus, one of the most important challenges of the D2D multimedia-data offloading architecture lies in how to satisfy the statistical delay-bounded QoS requirements over the two-hop wireless links which consists of two tandem single-hop links. To tackle these challenges, we propose the overall two-hop wireless link QoS provisioning schemes based on its two individual single-hop statistical QoS requirements. We derive the overall effective capacity's expression of the two-hop tandem wireless links as a function of the single-hop's effective capacities and prove that the overall equivalent effective capacity of the two-hop wireless link is upper bounded by the single-hop effective capacity with the smaller QoS exponent. Moreover, we derive the upper-bound and lower-bound of the equivalent QoS exponent for the overall two-hop wireless links and also show its monotonicity with respect to single-hop QoS exponents. To show the network performance's improvement after integrating the cellular networks and D2D offloading, we compare the scalability of the BS-based cellular wireless networks with and without D2D offloading. We also evaluate and validate our proposed two-hop wireless link statistical delay bounded QoS provisioning schemes over multimedia D2D offloading architecture through numerical analyses.
