Common signaling mode csm executive summary

Common Signaling Mode (CSM) Executive Summary

  • Very Simple CSM Solutions Identified

  • ~5 dB link margin improvement

    • Bandwidth is dropped by 1/3 and data-rate is dropped by 1/10Result is 5 dB better link margin than base 110Mbps MB-OFDM rate

  • Important Problem

    • More than one UWB solution will exist in the marketplace

  • CSM proactively manages co-existence

    • Enables interoperability and controls interference

    • Provides flexibility/extensibility within IEEE standards

  • Manages Risks

    • Improves the case for international regulatory approval

    • Provides options for future growth & scalability

    • Provides options to meet diverse application needs

Different compromise discussions

Different Compromise Discussions

  • Common mode for multiple PHYs

  • BPSK in MB-OFDM Band 2

  • Common mode using existing MB-OFDM preamble, or minimal changes

  • Common mode that supports a low-rate non-TG3a device (UWB or non-UWB)

Range of application requirements

Range of Application Requirements

  • TG3a has uncovered a huge range of requirements and usage scenarios:

    • Very high rate, isochronous transport of multimedia content (HDTV, Home Theater) between powered and portable devices.

    • Transfer of large amounts of data (video, image, MP3) between portable devices and PCs/media servers.

    • Transfer of individual items between like devices (e.g., exchange images between group capture camera and those cameras carried by the group in the image)

    • Interaction of portable devices sharing a local experience (multi-player gaming)

  • The CSM provides a framework to facilitate future growth and innovation:

    • High data rate short range transfers vs wireless home theater connectivity

    • A PHY selection that leaves openings for more efficient PHY choices will always be under attack by more appropriate PHYs

John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK


Long term vision

Long Term Vision

  • 802.15.3a defines UWB solutions useful in a large number and variety of devices

  • As technology improves, any 802.15.3a device can coexist and interoperate with all current (legacy) and future UWB devices

  • An ecosystem for WPAN technology evolves because of the ubiquity of the 802.15.3a standard in devices (e.g. WiFi)

  • 802.15.3a common base mode more easily enables world wide regulatory approval, where CSM manages one or more optional modes approved for use in each regulatory region

John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK


Objectives requirements goals

Objectives / Requirements / Goals

  • A Mode where different classes of UWB device (PHYs) operating in common spectrum can proactively co-exist & interoperate

    • TG3a compromise

      • MB-OFDM  DS-UWB

      • PNC does not limit peer-to-peer operations within CTAs

    • Extensibility to other UWB PHY’s

      • TG3a  non-TG3a

  • Simple

    • Negligible cost in terms of die-size and power consumption

    • Enable lower cost/power implementations without limiting the performance of higher-end implementations

  • Negligible impact on current proposals

    • Minimum changes to DS-UWB and MB-OFDM approaches

  • Mode is likely to fit into worldwide regulations

John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK


Current mac capabilities

Current MAC Capabilities

  • 15.3 TDMA behavior allows different classes of UWB devices to interoperate

  • Once a device is assigned a timeslot, that slot can be used for any transmission (e.g. MB-OFDM or DS-UWB or future UWB PHY) the device chooses

  • The basic mechanism needed to make this work is a “common language” or common signaling mode (CSM) that allows devices to communicate at a basic level that allows time slot request and allocations

John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK


15 3 mac support for a compromise

15.3 MAC Support for a Compromise

  • Beacon formats

    • Default use of CSM for beacons in mixed piconet

    • Homogenous piconets can use higher rate beacons

      • Periodic use of CSM beacon to permit new devices to join

  • Contention mechanisms for mixed piconets

    • CSMA/CA, slotted aloha, RTS-CTS with CSMA

  • DEV capabilities

    • Add fields to identify DEV support for alternate waveforms

  • Minimum requirements for non-TG3a devices

    • Participation as DEV

    • Participation as PNC

Overview of a csm phy

Overview of a CSM PHY

  • It is inevitable that multiple UWB solutions will exist in the marketplace

  • CSM manages multiple UWB solutions

  • Advantages

    • Interoperability – minimizes market confusion caused by dissimilar UWB devices

    • Coordinated co-existence provides higher system throughput & better QoS than non-coordinated systems in mixed-device environments

    • CSM provides a very low power mode for power sensitive devices

    • Future proofing

      • Multiple PHYs provide more options for diverse applications

      • Potential support for future UWB solutions

    • Mitigates regulatory uncertainties

  • Disadvantages

    • Slight additional complexity

John Santhoff, Pulse~LINK


The csm is consistent with goals of other uwb trade organizations

The CSM is Consistent with goals of other UWB trade organizations

  • MBOA Mission:

    “To develop the best overall solution for ultra-wideband based products in compliance with worldwide regulatory requirements, to ensure peaceful coexistence with current and future spectrum users, and to provide the most benefits to the broadest number of end consumers.”
