—The objective of this work is to research and analyse the performance of Cyclic Delay Diversity (CDD) with two transmit antenna on DVB-H systems operating in spatially correlated channel. It is shown in this paper that CDD can achieve desirable transmit diversity gain over uncorrelated channel with or without receiver diversity. However, in reality, the(More)
—This paper investigates the effects of the Cyclic Delay Diversity (CDD) transmit diversity scheme on DVB-H networks. Transmit diversity improves reception and Quality of Service (QoS) in areas of poor coverage such as sparsely populated or obscured locations. The technique not only provides robust reception in mobile environments thus improving QoS, but it(More)
—The requirements for future DVB-T/H networks demand that broadcasters design and deploy networks that provide ubiquitous reception in challenging indoors and other obstructed situations. It is essential that such networks are designed cost-effectively and with minimized environmental impact. The EC funded project PLUTO has since its start in 2006 explored(More)
—This paper presents a novel ultra wideband (UWB) channel model in the 3–10 GHz range for body-centric wireless communications. The tests are performed in both indoor anechoic chamber environments, addressing on-body and off-body propagation scenarios. The body channel model is extracted by using a single spatial grid over all the body, and by(More)
In the last few years, a great attention has been paid to wireless communications for body area networks especially since the IEEE 802.15.6 standard. The main objective of this work is to present a good technique for identifying between both Line-Of-Sight (LOS) and Non-Line-Of-Sight (NLOS) propagation schemes for UWB both of both on-body and off-body(More)
This paper presents a test-bed development and measurement plan for evaluating transmit diversity and on-channel repeaters in the Digital Video Broadcasting Network. Transmit diversity reduces the complexity and improves the power consumption of the personal receiving devices by enhancing the transmission of signals in NLOS cluttered environments. It is(More)
