ABSTRACT Group-orthogonal multicarrier code-division multiple access (GO-MC-CDMA) has been proposed as an attractive multiplexing technique for the uplink segment of wireless systems. More recently, a variant of this scheme has also been proposed for the downlink. This paper presents a unified bit error rate (BER) performance analysis of group-orthogonal wireless systems when using maximum likelihood (ML) multiuser/multisymbol detection covering both link directions. Valuable design rules regarding the number of subcarriers per group and the selection of spreading codes are derived. Simulations results using realistic system parameters and ETSI BRAN channel models are also presented which serve to validate the analytical results.

    ABSTRACT: Recent research has shown that code-division multiplex orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (CDM-OFDM) significantly improves the robustness of conventional OFDM against subcarrier fading. In particular, the combination of CDM with multiple transmit antennas has been shown to be very effective in the context of IEEE 802.11n. In this paper another distinctive feature of the forthcoming WLAN standard, namely, the existence of a feedback channel, is exploited to implement a frequency diversity adaptive technique. In the proposed method the receiver estimates an effective diversity order of the underlying wireless channel and feeds it back to the transmitter, which then uses it to appropriately dimension the CDM component. At the same time, the receiver can switch between iterative or noniterative processing depending on the CDM dimension of the forthcoming packets. Results show that this adaptivity can bring along important reductions in complexity without compromising error performance.

    ABSTRACT: Code-division multiplex orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (CDM-OFDM) has received considerable attention due to its superior resilience against subcarrier fading in comparison with conventional OFDM. More recently, group-orthogonal CDM-OFDM (GO-CDM-OFDM) has been considered as a suitable method to extract additional frequency diversity of the wireless channel by splitting the available subcarriers into (orthogonal) groups and applying optimum detection at the receiver on a per-group basis. One critical parameter of this scheme is the group size as it can effectively act like a complexity-performance trading knob. In this work an adaptive technique to dynamically adjust the group size as a function of the instantaneous operating scenario is presented. It is shown that this adaptivity can bring along important reductions in complexity without compromising error performance.

    • "In order to address the dimensioning and applicability of the GO-CDM component, its benefits should be weighed against the increase in computational complexity incurred in the detection process. To this end, and as already mentioned in [4], [5], it is important to bear in mind that the gains provided by code-division multiplexing are reduced when considering a coded system. Figure 3 depicts the trade-off between detection complexity and BER performance as a function of the group size for two SNR levels (8 and 14 dB). "

    ABSTRACT: Multicarrier and multiple transmit/receive antenna have become two key technologies underpinning most of the current development and research efforts towards ubiquitous high-throughput wireless communications. Both techniques can be used to increase the link throughput and/or to improve its robustness against channel fading and noise. This paper presents a unified bit error rate analysis for a particular flavour of multicarrier, namely, group-orthogonal code-division multiplex (GO-CDM), in combination with multiple Tx/Rx antennas. This system can be shown to encompass many of current wireless architectures and the analysis is general enough to incorporate the effects of channel frequency selectivity and Tx and/or Rx antenna correlation. The main outcome of this paper is a general analytical framework suitable to study the effects of the different types of diversity in multicarrier systems. More particularly, it is shown how GO-CDM can play an important role in improving the performance of MIMO-OFDM systems.
