Timing Synchronization of the WIND-FLEX OFDM Prototype

  title={Timing Synchronization of the WIND-FLEX OFDM Prototype},
  author={Mika Lasanen and Jukka Rautio and Mauri Nissil{\"a}},
Timing synchronization of an early WIND-FLEX prototype is discussed in this paper. Simulation results for different low-complexity timing synchronization metrics are given in an AWGN (additive white Gaussian noise) channel. Simulations take into account frame detection via a threshold comparison followed by symbol timing estimation using a maximum search. Training symbols are fixed. A novel low-complexity metric reaches equal or better results than the maximum correlation (MC) metric, if we…

Implementation and performance of low complexity SIMO OFDM timing synchronization
This paper presents a low complexity downlink timing synchronization implementation for the mobile IEEE802.16e OFDMA WiMAX system and demonstrates performance of different options of the design in terms of estimation accuracy.
Implementation of a MIMO OFDM-based wireless LAN system
The complete MIMO OFDM processing is implemented in a system with three transmit and three receive antennas, and its performance is evaluated with both simulations and experimental test results.

The future evolutions of telecommunications will be characterized by multiple cooperating access networks, shared IP based core networks and multimode terminals and the development of one or more new radio interface, in parallel to the enhancements of existing ones, will be necessary.


Robust frequency and timing synchronization for OFDM
