5G New Radio Sidelink Link-Level Simulator and Performance Analysis

October 24, 2022
Peng Liu, Chen Shen, Chunmei Liu, Fernando Cintron, Lyutianyang Zhang, Liu Cao, Richard A. Rouil, Sumit Roy
Since the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) specified 5G New Radio (NR) sidelink in Release 16, researchers have been expressing increasing interest in sidelink in various research areas, such as Proximity Services (ProSe) and Vehicle-to

PSCR 2021: Pecha Kucha Portfolio Overviews

September 28, 2021
John Beltz, Scott Ledgerwood, Roger Blalock, Joe Grasso, John S. Garofolo, Jesse Frey, Cara O'Malley, Fernando Cintron, Bill Fisher, Gema Howell, Yee-Yin Choong, Jack Lewis, Paul Merritt, Edmond J. Golden III, Ian Soboroff, Craig Connelly, Gary Howarth, Brianna Vendetti, Katelynn Kapalo, Margaret Pinson
PSCR Research Portfolio Leaders join their staff to provide an overview of the projects housed within their PSCR portfolio. Each portfolio overview is delivered in a traditional Pecha Kucha style presentation, dividing topics into 20 slides that when

Study of 5G New Radio (NR) Support for Direct Mode Communications

May 7, 2021
Fernando Cintron, David W. Griffith, Chunmei Liu, Richard A. Rouil, Yishen Sun, Jian Wang, Peng Liu, Chen Shen, Aziza Ben Mosbah, Samantha Gamboa Quintiliani
In public safety communications, direct mode communication is essential to keep first responders connected, especially when there is no network coverage. Direct mode communication is supported in Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term

Distributed Resource Allocation Schemes for Out-of-Coverage D2D Communications

February 27, 2020
Jian Wang, Richard A. Rouil, Fernando J. Cintron
In many public safety scenarios, Device-to-Device (D2D) communication should be capable of handling out-of-coverage situations, ensuring that D2D devices can communicate directly without the aid of network infrastructure. While a number of resource

Modeling and Simulation Analysis of the Physical Sidelink Shared Channel (PSSCH)

May 24, 2018
David W. Griffith, Fernando J. Cintron, Timothy Hall, Richard A. Rouil
This paper examines the performance of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) Physical Sidelink Shared Channel (PSSCH) in out-of-coverage (OOC) device-to-device (D2D) communication scenarios. We develop a closed form expression for the distribution of the number of

Adaptive synchronization reference selection for out-of-coverage Proximity Services (ProSe)

October 8, 2017
Samantha M. Gamboa Quintiliani, Fernando J. Cintron, David W. Griffith, Richard A. Rouil
Proximity services (ProSe) is a Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) feature that allows User Equipments (UEs) to communicate without the need of routing the data throughout the network. In this paper, we studied the synchronization protocol used by ProSe

Implementation and Validation of an LTE D2D Model for ns-3

June 13, 2017
Richard A. Rouil, Fernando J. Cintron, Aziza Ben Mosbah, Samantha M. Gamboa Quintiliani
The ability to perform device-to-device (D2D) communication in Long Term Evolution (LTE)-based cellular networks became possible with the introduction of Proximity Services (ProSe) functionalities in the 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP)

Physical Sidelink Control Channel (PSCCH) in Mode 2: Performance Analysis

May 25, 2017
David W. Griffith, Fernando J. Cintron, Richard A. Rouil
User Equipments (UEs) that send data must advertise the upcoming transmission by broadcasting signaling messages over the Physical Sidelink Control Channel (PSCCH). Thus, it is important for the network operator to define the PSCCH resource pool to

Impact of timing on the Proximity Services (ProSe) synchronization function

January 8, 2017
Samantha Gamboa Quintiliani, Fernando Cintron, David W. Griffith, Richard A. Rouil
Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) introduces a new feature called Proximity Services (ProSe), which enables device-to-device (D2D) communication between User Equipment (UE) and the capability to operate out-of-network. In order to establish a D2D

An Long Term Evolution (LTE) Device-to-Device module for ns-3

June 14, 2016
Richard A. Rouil, Fernando Cintron, Aziza Ben Mosbah, Samantha Gamboa Quintiliani
In this paper, we provide an overview of the on-going implementation of a 3rd Generation Partnership Program (3GPP) Proximity Services (ProSe) module in ns-3 to enable the performance evaluation of device-to-device (D2D) discovery and communication in Long
