Based on the estimated CIR within CP length
In practical, the temperature and the bandwidth are known to receiver. Therefore, we may have the information of noise in advance.
The real and the imaginary part of noise follow Gaussian probability distribution.
Rayleigh probability derived from complex Gaussian variables is exploited.
Although the larger value of threshold can achieve more complete noise reduction, the taps with slight channel energy will be removed possibly.
There are two main causes of distortion associated with the carrier frequency. One is the non-coherent up and down frequency conversion accompanied with an unavoidable difference due to physically inherent nature of the transceiver oscillators. The other is caused by Doppler shift due to the transceiver mobility.
CP-Based Estimator :
LOS-Based Estimator :
Most of the maximum Doppler offset can be compensated with the proper schemes in the Rician fading channel. Broadly speaking, the LOS component usually emerges on the first arrival propagation path, and the Rician factor enlarges its weight diminishing the affection of scattered components.
Owing to the performance of linear interpolation highly depends on pilots, noise reduction on them makes an improvement as expected.
Although more MAWs mitigate the effect of noise evidently, it means the requirement of constant in several time-slots must to be satisfied.
When the rise of velocity such that the technique of Moving Average is unsuitable to use especially at high SNR, DFT-based transition is an alternative way. By inherent time domain processing, the goal of noise reduction on pilots can be achieved.
In order to make the frequency domain interpolation more robust to such large delay spread scenario, the time domain interpolation may be performed prior to the frequency domain interpolation.
