— A rapid synchronization method is presented for an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) system using either a continuous transmission or a burst operation over a frequency-selective channel. The presence of a signal can be detected upon the receipt of just one training sequence of two symbols. The start of the frame and the beginning of the(More)
—Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is robust against frequency selective fading due to the increase of the symbol duration. However, for mobile applications channel time-variations in one OFDM symbol introduce intercarrier-interference (ICI) which degrades the performance. This becomes more severe as mobile speed, carrier frequency or OFDM(More)
—Multiple-input–multiple-output (MIMO) systems have the potential to achieve very high capacities, depending on the propagation environment. Capacity increases as signal correlation decreases. We present the measurements of a MIMO system under strong and weak line-of-sight conditions. The system capacity decreases as the distance from the transmitter(More)
—This letter addresses the effect of timing synchronization errors that are introduced by an erroneous detection of the start of an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) symbol. 1 Such errors degrade the performance of an OFDM receiver by introducing intercarrier interference (ICI) and intersymbol interference (ISI). They can occur due to either(More)
—In this paper, we analyze the behavior of a multiple element antenna system in an indoor environment based on the measurements taken in the Lucent Bell Labs building in Crawford Hill, NJ, with a system of 12 transmitters and 15 receivers. In particular , we investigate the capacity behavior with respect to the polarization of the transmitting/receiving(More)
Handoo is the procedure by which a user's radio link is transferred between radio ports in the network without an interruption of the user connection. In this paper , we discuss how a Wireless Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) network may reroute a user connection during a handoo. We propose a novel procedure called \Nearest Common Node Rerouting (NCNR)."(More)
We consider the problem of managing the information required to locate users in a wireless communication system, with a focus on designing and evaluating location management techniques that are efficient, scalable, and flexible. The three key contributions of this paper are: (1) A family of location management techniques, HiPER (for Hierarchical ProfilE(More)
— Using parallel processing, the execution time of wireless network simulations can be significantly decreased without compromising the fidelity of the simulation. However, incorporating details such as signal propagation, interference, and resource allocation schemes may add considerable complexity to the parallel simulation which may overshadow the gain(More)
