4 - Wireless-Powered Communication Networks with Ambient Backscatter

from Part II - Architectures, Protocols, and Performance Analysis


In this chapter, we first introduce the motivation of using RF energy harvesting for wireless-powered communication networks (WPCNs). We then present how ambient backscatter technology can be integrated and improve the performance of WPCNs. After that, an extensive performance analysis for the integration of ambient backscatter communication to a WPCN is studied. Finally, some open issues for WPCNs with ambient backscatter communications are discussed.
