Integrated satellite-terrestrial networks (ISTNs) are essential for providing ubiquitous mobile ultra-broadband service in beyond 5G networks. The spectral efficiency and reliability of ISTN depend on the integrated architecture and its operational strategies including interference management and resource allocation. Our view is to integrate terrestrial access and satellite backhaul networks and to develop an optimization technique for their joint operation. This paper proposes an efficient integrated access and backhaul (IAB) architecture for satellite-terrestrial networks (STNs) based on reverse time division duplexing (TDD) considering both uplink (UL) and downlink (DL). In particular, in-band backhauling and gNodeB (gNB) cooperation are considered for high spectral efficiency and reliability. A framework for joint optimization of cooperative beamforming and resource allocation is developed to maximize the UL-DL rate region of the in-band IAB. The proposed scheme is verified using the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard channel models. Results show that the proposed scheme significantly outperforms the conventional wireless backhauling, while approaching to an outer bound of the UL-DL rate region.

Abstract

Integrated satellite-terrestrial networks (ISTNs) are essential for providing ubiquitous mobile ultra-broadband service in beyond 5G networks. The spectral efficiency and reliability of ISTN depend on the integrated architecture and its operational strategies including interference management and resource allocation. Our view is to integrate terrestrial access and satellite backhaul networks and to develop an optimization technique for their joint operation. This paper proposes an efficient integrated access and backhaul (IAB) architecture for satellite-terrestrial networks (STNs) based on reverse time division duplexing (TDD) considering both uplink (UL) and downlink (DL). In particular, in-band backhauling and gNodeB (gNB) cooperation are considered for high spectral efficiency and reliability. A framework for joint optimization of cooperative beamforming and resource allocation is developed to maximize the UL-DL rate region of the in-band IAB. The proposed scheme is verified using the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard channel models. Results show that the proposed scheme significantly outperforms the conventional wireless backhauling, while approaching to an outer bound of the UL-DL rate region.
