The Editor-in-Chief has retracted this article. Recently, a reader of Telecommunication Systems brought to our attention that some parts of this article  have been plagiarized from another publication  without giving a citation or credit. After investigating this case, it was confirmed that this paper duplicates Figs. 1, 2 and Tables 1, 2, and larger part of the text from .
