Abstract

Massive Internet of Things (mIoT) is a major use case of the fifth generation (5G) wireless systems. mIoT aims to support a large number of connection requests from the IoT devices. However, the conventional Long Term Evolution (LTE) random access procedure hinders the support of mIoT due to the limited number of available preambles. In this paper, we propose to aggregate two Zadoff-Chu preamble sequences from two different roots to obtain a larger set of preambles by considering all possible combinations of preamble sequence pairs. Decoding the aggregate preambles is challenging because the receiver needs to decode two preamble sequences where each one is allocated half of the transmit power. We propose two receiver architectures for preamble decoding. The first one is a threshold-based receiver which only requires minor changes to the LTE preamble receiver architecture. The second proposed preamble decoder architecture exploits a deep neural network. Simulations show that the proposed aggregate preamble design results in a lower service time for backlogged IoT devices compared to existing collision avoidance techniques. Moreover, the proposed receiver architectures can decode the aggregate preambles with low probabilities of misdetection and false alarms (less than 11%), especially in the high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regime.
