Optimal preemptive retransmission strategy for URLLC in unlicensed spectrum

Abstract : In this paper, we exploit the use of unlicensed spectrum in industrial scenarios for UltraReliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC). We consider a set of automated machines communicating with a central base station and competing to the radio resources among themselves and with enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) traffic. Observing the impact of Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) on the stringent reliability and delay requirements, we propose a progressive bilevel power transmission policy for URLLC, where a high power transmission can be regarded as a preemption of eMBB packets with lower power. We formulate the objective as a stochastic optimization problem under constraints and solve it in the simple Aloha-like case, and in the more complex LBT case. We then use this model to build an online (re-)transmission algorithm which enables the URLLC stations to determine in a distributed manner the optimal policy using observations of the environment parameters.
