The distinguishing feature of his research is that it aims for holistic system optimization, with the ultimate goal of improving the users' quality of experience (QoE) , whilst maintaining a low complexity and power consumption. His approach is that of finding the performance limits, such as the capacity and then conceiving attractive solutions approaching these limits at a low complexity. In this spirit, Hanzo innovated in HSPA/LTE-style adaptive modulation techniques, joint iterative turbo decoding, detection, equalization and synchronization combined with source and channel coding, leading to cross-layer-optimized improved-QoE networked multimedia services. His optimization tools encompass both the entire suite of classic signal processing toolbox components, as well as radically new nature-inspired random guided learning/optimization techniques. His optimization Cost-Functions (CFs) are innovative, since he aims for the direct holistic optimization of multi-user, multi-cell systems using the most pertinent metric of direct Bit Error Ratio (BER) optimization or the above-mentioned QoE metric. Just to mention a few pioneering optimization techniques introduced into his holistic system optimization studies, they range from classic neural networks and genetic algorithms to particle swarm optimization, support vector machines, relevant vector machines, ant colonies, harmony search, weighted boosting, expectation maximization, probability data association, as detailed further below.
Following a decade of industrial development, Hanzo’s wireless research started in the mid-1980s, hallmarked by many innovative contributions to the GSM system, in particular leading to many technical advances in the standardization of adaptive modulation-aided EDGE 3G/3.5G HSDPA/HSUPA, 3GPP LTE, WiFi, WiMAX and DVB/DVB-H systems. His technical research solutions have led to the unprecedented evolution of quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), time-domain (TD) frequency-domain (FD) and spatial-domain (SD) spread MC-CDMA, orthogonal frequency domain multiplex (OFDM), new multi-functional MIMO, generalized turbo-detection and networking. Hanzo’s many major technical contributions can be summarized under the eight technical areas below:
3.5G HSPA/AQAM: He has developed seminal contributions on the BER evaluation of QAM, providing novel pilot-symbol-assisted modulation (PSAM) solutions, low-complexity differential-QAM dispensing with channel estimation and adaptive-QAM (AQAM) leading to the 3.5G HSPA data transfer mode. Three international teams were globally influential, providing sustained contributions on QAM research: the Japanese Ministry of Post/Telecomms - leading to an AQAM 3G-proposal, Andrea Goldsmith at Caltech/Stanford and Hanzo’s team. This research has substantially influenced the standardization of the third-generation (3G) mobile phone system’s High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) mode, and thus facilitated the introduction of the Wireless Internet.
His highly-cited AQAM research strongly influenced both the ensuing OFDM and CDMA standardization, again, in the 3.5G HSDPA mode, for WiFi and WiMAX. The crest-factor issues in AQAM/OFDM were solved along with the challenge of achieving joint turbo-detection and decision-directed channel estimation (DDCE) for MIMO-OFDM, where potentially 8x8=64 MIMO-channels may all have to be estimated. A benefit of his joint turbo-DDCE was that the perfect-estimation-based single-user/single-stream performance was achieved by multi-user MIMO-OFDM, demonstrating the benefits of TD, FD and SD spreading under time-variant propagation conditions, where no fixed-mode transceiver performs as well. His team also characterized CDMA, SDMA and MIMO scenarios with the aid of a unified channel matrix, which allows the joint physical interpretation of CDMA and SDMA/SDM systems.
3G/3.5G HSPA-STYLE NETWORKING: His research team quantified the overall network-layer benefits of the above-mentioned AQAM physical-layer performance improvements using novel cross-layer optimization techniques where, instead of dropping a call under hostile channel conditions, only the AQAM rate is dropped temporarily, leading to a factor of two improvement in user-load. He also demonstrated that the Gupta-Kumar scaling law of large ad-hoc networks cannot be entirely circumvented by AQAM, but nonetheless, by using AQAM and sophisticated decode-and-forward relaying and FEC design, the effective throughput can be substantially improved. Both AQAM and MIMO were proposed to improve the otherwise poor TDD performance of 3.5G TDD networks, approaching that of the corresponding FDD system. This radical TDD improvement facilitated the large-scale roll-out of the wireless Internet, where the asymmetric uplink/downlink (UL/DL) tele-traffic benefits from allocating an arbitrary number of time-slots to both the UL and DL. This was exploited by numerous service providers across Europe, where companies, who bought FDD licenses were freely allocated additional TDD resources, which were exploited for example for creating residential femto-cells, etc.
NON-LINEAR MUD and MULTI-USER TRANSMISSION FOR HIGH-THROUGHPUT RANK-DEFICIENT LTE MIMO-OFDM SCENARIOS: In the presence of a high number of uplink (UL) transmitters it is unrealistic to expect the UL receiver to have a sufficiently high number of receiver MIMO-elements, which renders the channel matrix rank-deficient. As the received signal constellation degrades, only powerful non-linear Maximum Likelihood (ML), Bayesian or low-complexity near-ML Sphere-Decoders (SD) can avoid catastrophic BER degradations. He thus proposed a suite of powerful MUDs based on Radial Basis Functions (RBF), Bayesian optimization, new Genetic Algorithms (GA), Ant Colonies (ACO), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Harmony Search (HS), Expectation Maximization (EM), Probability Data Association (PDA), etc – most of these used the radically new Minimum Bit Error Ratio (MBER) cost function to directly minimize the BER, rather than the classic MSE. These MBER transceivers perform extremely well, conveying 2-3 times the user load at the cost of an increased complexity. It is confidently expected that these MBER designs will soon become widely applied. Particularly beneficial solutions were designed by using the MBER cost-function and optimizing it using particle swarm optimization at a fraction of the sphere-encoder's complexity in multi-user transmissions, which facilitated the employment of low-complexity single-user receivers. More explicitly, the overwhelming benefit of these MBER multi-user transmitters is that they minimize the multi-user interference at the transmitter even in the presence of inaccurate channel information and hence facilitate the employment of low-complexity matched-filtering based single-user receivers.
WIRELESS MULTIMEDIA TURBO TRANSCEIVERS: In 1993 Hanzo conceived one of the first wireless video communicators, which led to a series of further development and to the first dedicated Wiley-IEEE Press monograph on this subject in 2001. The objective function was that of optimizing the overall channel-impaired video quality, instead of designing error-sensitive compression for a perfect channel, as is now widely adopted across the multimedia communications industry. His recent research demonstrated that near-capacity operation can be achieved by exchanging extrinsic information between the source decoder and channel decoder and by exploiting the new concept of iterative joint source and channel decoding, which now incorporates many of Hanzo’s personal research advances. This work culminated in a pair of research monographs on speech/audio and video transceivers. As a further extension, in 2010 he published the first monograph on loss-less near-capacity variable-length coded wireless transceivers.
NON-COHERENT TRANSCEIVERS FOR COOPERATIVE MOBILES: Hanzo published a series of IEEE journals papers and Wiley-IEEE Press monographs on the design of MIMOs having either co-located or distributed antenna elements. These designs have to manipulate large matrices and their coherently detected versions typically require a large number of channels to be estimated. This task imposes a potentially excessive complexity, requires a high pilot overhead and yet, the predicted performance gains erode in the presence of channel estimation errors and spatial signal correlation. These limitations may be beneficially circumvented with the aid of the carefully designed non-coherently detected multi-functional MIMOs documented by Hanzo and his team, as detailed in the open literature. The related design-guidelines are as follows:
The spatial antenna-correlation is eliminated with the assistance of cooperating single-antenna-aided mobiles, where again, low-complexity non-coherent detection dispensing with channel estimation is employed. However, their performance may degrade for high Doppler frequencies, which is eliminated with the aid of multiple-symbol sphere-detection at a low complexity. The FEC codes of these distributed MIMOs have to be specifically designed with the aid of Extrinsic Information Transfer (EXIT) charts. He demonstrated that the relay-aided multiple-component FECs may be viewed as three-stage concatenated transceivers, where the near-capacity design criterion is that of maintaining a marginally open EXIT-tunnel at both the relay and the destination, which facilitates convergence to an infinitesimally low BER at near-capacity channel SNRs. Numerous new regular and so-called irregular FEC codes were designed and disseminated, including 36-component Irregular Convolutional Codes (IrCCs), new protograph LDPC codes, generalized LDPC codes using Reed-Solomon component codes, self-concatenated codes using Trellis Coded Modulation (TCM) components, new early-stopping assisted ARQ arrangements, optimum multi-dimensional sphere-packing modulation schemes etc. Another radical advance was the elimination of the interference imposed by asynchronous cooperating relays with the aid of new so-called Large Area Synchronized (LAS) and Generalized Orthogonal Codes (GOCs) invoked for the CDMA-style direct-sequence spreading of the potentially interfering signals. These LAS and GOC codes exhibit an interference-free window, which ensures that within this time-interval all multi-path and multi-user interference is eliminated.
BASE-STATION COOPERATION AND RADIO-OVER-FIBRE AIDED DISTRIBUTED ANTENNAS: Many of the above-mentioned cooperative techniques may also be exploited not only in the context of MSs, but also for supporting the cooperation of BSs. In this BS-context it is more realistic to use sophisticated coherent-detection aided MIMO techniques, where similarly to the single antenna elements of the MSs, the omni-directional antennas of multiple BSs may also be viewed as the elements of a distributed MIMO system. Hanzo and his team designed a campaign for quantifying the attainable upper-bound performance in the idealized scenario of having perfect channel knowledge for each MS-BS link. Then this iealized assumption was eliminated and a variety of partial channel knowledge scenarios were considered, including the complete absence of channel knowledge.
Finally, in contrast to the assumption of a perfect Radio-over-Fiber (RoF) link routinely used in the literature, Hanzo and his team modeled the realistic dispersive optical fiber and quantified its effects on distributed antennas systems.
LOW-POWER IMPLEMENTATION OF WIRELESS SYSTEM COMPONENTS: In a large fraction of the studies found in the open literature the transmit power reduction and implementation-oriented power reduction of wireless systems are carried out independently. In his recent research Hanzo embarked on the joint transmit power reduction and signal processing power consumption reduction of wireless system components. As an example, instead of time-consuming bit-by-bit Monte-Carlo simulations, novel EXIT-chart based techniques were proposed for finding the minimum required number of bits in fixed-point implementation of turbo codes, for example.
PhD Supervision: 70 PhD students have successfully graduated under Hanzo’s supervision. He also supervised in excess of 100 Master student projects and helped more than 100 students to start their publishing career. He was awarded his University's top Graduate Teaching Award in two different years. Hanzo also created five e-learning modules for the IEEE, as seen at Xplore.
Hanzo is unquestionably the top UK communications academic researcher with particularly high international visibility. He is the dynamic leader of a group of ~50 Southampton researchers and his academic colleagues there rely heavily on Hanzo himself defining the new research directions and conducting the detailed supervision of PhD students and assisting them with their many publications.
