— We propose a new subcarrier allocation algorithm for Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) that gives fair allocation of capacity to multiple users with different channel and traffic characteristics. This is achieved by utilizing buffer state information and measured traffic statistics in addition to channel state feedback. Multiuser(More)
— This paper investigates subcarrier and power allocation in multiuser OFDM. The aim is to maximize the overall rate while achieving proportional fairness amongst users under a total power constraint. Achieving the optimal solution is computationally demanding thereby necessitating the use of sub-optimal techniques. Existing sub-optimal techniques either(More)
The mobile wireless channel aaords inherent diversity to combat the eeects of fading. Existing code division multiple access (CDMA) systems, by virtue of spread-spectrum signaling and RAKE reception, exploit only part of the channel diversity via multipath combination. Moreover , their performance degrades under fast fading commonly encountered in mobile(More)
The performance of iterative decoding of low density parity check (LDPC) codes over binary erasure channels can be completely characterized by the study of stopping sets. Therefore, the burst erasure correction capability of a given LDPC code can be readily quantified by searching for stopping sets within consecutive bit nodes. In this work we study the(More)
—Multiple antenna transmission and reception have been shown to significantly increase the achievable data rates of wireless systems. However, most of the existing analysis assumes perfect or no channel information at the receiver and transmitter. The performance gap between these extreme channel assumptions is large and most practical systems lie in(More)
—Channel estimation techniques for code-division multiple access (CDMA) systems need to combat multiple access interference (MAI) effectively. Most existing estimation techniques are designed for CDMA systems with short repetitive spreading codes. However, current and next-generation wireless systems use long spreading codes whose periods are much larger(More)
This paper presents algorithms and architecture designs that can meet real-time requirements of multiuser channel estimation and detection in future CDMA-based wireless base-station receivers. Sophisticated algorithms proposed to implement multiuser channel estimation and detection make their real-time implementation difficult on current Digital Signal(More)
also extended to band-wise allocation of subcarriers in order to help reduce signaling overhead in time varying channels. We examine the trade-off between increasing the sub-band size and the corresponding degradation in system performance for different values of the channel multipath delay spread.
—Antenna selection in Multiple-Input-Multiple-output (MIMO) systems preserves diversity gain while significantly reducing hardware complexity. However, imperfect Channel State Information (CSI) affects performance. In this paper, we first analyze the performance of a MIMO system employing antenna selection at the transmitter and Maximal Ratio Combining(More)
We consider the uplink channel estimation of a multipath wireless channel used for orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) transmission, where the uplink uses a pseudo-random ldquotilerdquo allocation pattern. A tile is made of small number of physically adjacent data subcarriers along with a few embedded pilot subcarriers and an uplink(More)
