Wireless communication technology is approaching a spectrum crunch with the proliferation of data-hungry applications enabled by broadband mobile wireless devices, such as smartphones, laptops and tablets [1–4]. On the one hand, the data-hungry applications will soon outgrow the megabits/sec speeds offered by current networks and require aggregate data transport capability of tens or hundreds of gigabits/sec (Gbps) [5–8]. On the other hand, the wireless electromagnetic spectrum is essentially limited, due to technological, physical and regulatory constraints [5, 9]. This has led to new approaches for the efficient use of the available spectrum, ...
