—In this paper, we analyze the performance of pilot-assisted least square (LS) and minimum mean squared error (MMSE) channel estimators for orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with transmit antenna diversity. We first provide a design of orthogonal pilot sequences to simplify the estimators. We then analyze the mean squared error (MSE)(More)
Recommended by Athina Petropulu To maximize system throughput and guarantee the quality of service (QoS) of multimedia traffic in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with smart antennas, a new packet scheduler is introduced to consider QoS requirements, packet location in the frame, and modulation level. In the frequency domain,(More)
— The binary exponential backoff (BEB) algorithm used in IEEE 802.11 DCF suffers from the unfairness problem and yields low throughput under heavy load. With physical layer assisted loss differentiation, this paper proposes a new distributed queuing medium access control (MAC) protocol (PALD-DQMP). In this protocol, utilizing the user detection module in(More)
