— Several recent standards such as IEEE 802.11a/g, IEEE 802.16, and ECMA Multi-band Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM) for high data-rate Ultra-Wideband (UWB), employ bit-interleaved convolutionally-coded multicarrier modulation over quasi-static fading channels. Motivated by the lack of appropriate error rate analysis techniques for this(More)
— In this paper, we analyze the frequency-hopping orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system known as Multiband OFDM for high-rate wireless personal area networks (WPANs) based on ultra-wideband (UWB) transmission. Besides considering the standard, we also propose and study system performance enhancements through the application of Turbo and(More)
— The frequency-hopping orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) proposal, known as Multiband OFDM, is a strong contender for the physical layer IEEE standard for high-rate wireless personal area networks (WPANs) based on ultra-wideband (UWB) transmission. In this paper, we analyze the performance of the Multiband OFDM proposal. To this end, we (a)(More)
— This paper presents an analysis of the performance of the Multiband Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (MB-OFDM) system for Ultra Wideband (UWB) communication in the presence of interference from IEEE 802.16 WiMAX systems operating in the 3.5 GHz band. We present an exact analysis of the uncoded bit error rate (BER) of the MB-OFDM system, based on(More)
