In this paper, we investigate the dynamic resource allocation adapted to spread-spectrum multicarrier multiple-access (SS-MC-MA) systems in a multiuser power line communication (PLC) context. The developed adaptive system is valid for uplink, downlink, as well as for indoor and outdoor communications. The studied SS-MC-MA system is based on classical(More)
In this paper, we propose to apply adaptive loading principles to linear precoded digital multitone (LP-DMT). This new approach can especially be exploited in the powerline context, since it requires the knowledge of the channel at the transmitter. We first show that maximal waveform capacity is achieved when orthogonal matrices are used to linearly precode(More)
Time reversal (TR) is considered as a promising technique for green and multi-user communications thanks to its time and space focusing properties. TR can be viewed as a precoding scheme which can be combined with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) and easily carried out in a multiple transmit antenna context. This paper analyzes the(More)
In this paper we study the Time Reversal (TR) technique in a large MISO-OFDM system. This technique has been proven to provide good beamforming gains at a price of a channel estimation availability at the transmitter side. Moreover, the greater the number of transmit antennas, the better the spatial and temporal focusing gains, which makes TR a good(More)
This letter introduces a 3D space-time-space block code for future terrestrial digital TV systems. The code is based on a double layer structure designed for inter-cell and intra-cell transmissions in single frequency networks. Without increasing the complexity of the receiver, the proposed code is very efficient to cope with equal and unequal received(More)
Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is the most popular transmission technology in digital terrestrial broadcasting (DTTB), adopted by many DTTB standards. In this paper, the bit error rate (BER) performance of two DTTB systems, namely cyclic prefix OFDM (CP-OFDM) based DVB-T and time domain synchronous OFDM (TDS-OFDM) based DTMB, is evaluated(More)
We investigate the use of a linear precoded orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (LP-OFDM) waveform for high-data-rate ultra-wideband (UWB) systems. This waveform applied for the first time to UWB applications is an evolution of the multiband OFDM (MB-OFDM) solution supported by WiMedia-MBOA (MultiBand OFDM Alliance). The aim of this paper is twofold.(More)
In this paper, we present a finite-granularity loading algorithm for multicarrier spread-spectrum modulation systems. The proposed scheme attempts to give a robust solution to the power line communication challenging task. Throughout the paper, the particular case of an adapted version of multi-carrier code-division-multiple-access (MC-CDMA) is considered,(More)
This paper considers the problem of impulse response shortening for discrete multitone (DMT) ransceivers. The proposed channel shortening filter shortens the effective channel impulse response (CIR) while concentrating energy in a predetermined window. This approach is based on convolution operation and filter coefficients decomposition which over(More)
