Telecommunications is an exciting branch of engineering. It unravels the marvels of modern communication technology that is growing rapidly using the advancements in Microelectronics and Computers. Telecommunication has been acknowledged as a vital ingredient of economic growth. It is to realize this growing importance of the field that IUP has come up with a quarterly journal, The IUP Journal of Telecommunications. We are sure that the academic fraternity will encourage us—as they have done in all our previous endeavors—by availing this facility for publishing their research works.

Distributed Resource Allocation for Two-Tier Heterogeneous Cellular Networks

--O Oguejiofor, A Abe, A N Aniedu and G N Okechukwu

Heterogeneous cellular Network (HetNet) is a promising technology for 5th generation (5G) mobile networks that can potentially improve spatial resource reuse and extend coverage, therefore allowing it to achieve significantly higher data rates than single-tier networks. However, the performance of HetNet is limited by co-channel (inter-UE, inter-cell) interference. Hence, resource allocation is carefully done in this paper to ensure that the loss in achievable data rate due to interference does not diminish the gain in the achievable data rate due to higher spatial reuse. The resources considered are the spatial resource (unit-beamformer) and the power resource. Distributed spatial resource allocation problem is formulated as a quadratic optimization problem with non-convex quadratic constraints and solved by exploiting Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) conditions. The proposed hybrid power resource allocation scheme involves a three-step process, starting with two power optimization procedures. These two power optimization procedures are formulated as convex optimization problems and solved by exploiting KKT conditions and CVX (a Matlab software for discipline convex programming), respectively, while the third step involves utilizing results from the aforementioned power optimization procedures to compute average powers allocated to UEs. The simulation results of the proposed method, when compared with other existing methods showed significant improvement.

An Entropy-Based Binarization Method to Separate Foreground from Background in Document Image Processing

--Parthajit Roy and Swati Adhikari

Character recognition is a branch of pattern recognition, where texts or characters are realized from images. Binarization is an important step of character recognition, where foregrounds or texts or characters are separated from backgrounds. The paper proposes a novel entropy-based fuzzy clustering method for text binarization of a gray-level document image. The proposed method considers the spatial information of the gray pixels and the original gray level values for its computations. In order to separate text or document pixels and background pixels in a more realistic way, the proposed method incorporates fuzzy logic-based decision system. The performance of the method has been tested with several images consisting of different Indian languages and the results are evaluated with respect to two existing standard binarization methods.

Evolution of Non-Conventional MOS Device Structures: A Review

--Navneet Kaur, Munish Rattan and Sandeep Singh Gill

High packing density and low power dissipation in a chip are the needs of very large-scale integrated circuits. As technology is shrinking, conducting channels are becoming shorter to add more devices onto the fixed area, but simultaneously certain factors arise which degrade the device performance. To overcome the limitations of short channel MOS transistors, several designs for the device architecture like Double Gate (DG) and Triple Gate (TG) MOS structures have been explored. The paper reviews the performance advantages of each advanced structure and relative dependence on various process parameters. Also, the developed analytical models for calculating drain current, surface potential, transcapacitances, etc., of these structures have been assessed.

Automated Teller Machines (ATMs): The Changing Face of Banking in India

Bank Management
Information and communication technology has changed the way in which banks provide services to its customers. These days the customers are able to perform their routine banking transactions without even entering the bank premises. ATM is one such development in recent years, which provides remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the development of this self-service banking in India based on the secondary data.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is playing a very important role in the progress and advancement in almost all walks of life. The deregulated environment has provided an opportunity to restructure the means and methods of delivery of services in many areas, including the banking sector. The ICT has been a focused issue in the past two decades in Indian banking. In fact, ICTs are enabling the banks to change the way in which they are functioning. Improved customer service has become very important for the very survival and growth of banking sector in the reforms era. The technological advancements, deregulations, and intense competition due to the entry of private sector and foreign banks have altered the face of banking from one of mere intermediation to one of provider of quick, efficient and customer-friendly services. With the introduction and adoption of ICT in the banking sector, the customers are fast moving away from the traditional branch banking system to the convenient and comfort of virtual banking. The most important virtual banking services are phone banking, mobile banking, Internet banking and ATM banking. These electronic channels have enhanced the delivery of banking services accurately and efficiently to the customers. The ATMs are an important part of a bank’s alternative channel to reach the customers, to showcase products and services and to create brand awareness. This is reflected in the increase in the number of ATMs all over the world. ATM is one of the most widely used remote banking services all over the world, including India. This paper analyzes the growth of ATMs of different bank groups in India.
International Scenario

If ATMs are largely available over geographically dispersed areas, the benefit from using an ATM will increase as customers will be able to access their bank accounts from any geographic location. This would imply that the value of an ATM network increases with the number of available ATM locations, and the value of a bank network to a customer will be determined in part by the final network size of the banking system. The statistical information on the growth of branches and ATM network in select countries.

Indian Scenario

The financial services industry in India has witnessed a phenomenal growth, diversification and specialization since the initiation of financial sector reforms in 1991. Greater customer orientation is the only way to retain customer loyalty and withstand competition in the liberalized world. In a market-driven strategy of development, customer preference is of paramount importance in any economy. Gone are the days when customers used to come to the doorsteps of banks. Now the banks are required to chase the customers; only those banks which are customercentric and extremely focused on the needs of their clients can succeed in their business today.
