—Terrestrial or Handheld Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB-T/H) and Terrestrial Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (T-DMB) are two popular broadcasting standards that enable digital television transmissions to handheld receivers. This paper presents a comprehensive performance comparison between the physical layers of DVB-T/H and T-DMB when employed for mobile(More)
—This paper deals with the analytical evaluation of the average delay, the packet-loss rate (PLR) and the throughput of a multiuser (MU) wireless system that capitalizes on a cross-layer design of adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) with automatic repeat request (ARQ). To this end, we propose a heuristic scheduling policy, which has the nice properties to(More)
—A multibeam satellite system can be modelled as a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) system with an inter-beam interference matrix that is derived from the positions of the users in the different beams. This way it is possible to apply precoding techniques, such as Tomlinson-Harashima precoding (THP), to mitigate the interference. This paper presents an(More)
—This paper develops a novel simulation model to characterize the bit error rate (BER) performance of coded orthogonal frequency-division modulation (OFDM) systems affected by Doppler spread. This simulation model, which acts directly in the frequency domain, greatly enhances the simulation efficiency, while maintaining a very good accuracy. By this model,(More)
—This paper analyzes the quality of service (QoS) of scheduling algorithms for heterogeneous users in multiuser (MU) wireless systems that take advantage from a cross-layer design with both adaptive modulation and coding (AMC) and automatic repeat request (ARQ). By developing a general theoretical framework based on a finite-state Markov chain, we(More)
—This paper proposes a novel simulation model to characterize the bit-error rate (BER) performance of coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) systems that are affected by the Doppler spread. The proposed equivalent frequency-domain OFDM model (EFDOM) avoids the exact generation of the time-varying channel by introducing several parameters(More)
