Applications: various Area Networks
  • According to the applications, we define three “Area Networks”:
  • Personal Area Network (PAN), for communications within a few meters. This is the typical Bluetooth or Zigbee application between between personal devices such as your cell phone, desktop, earpiece and so on;
  • Local Area Network (LAN), for communications up 300 meters. Access points at the airport, coffee shops, wireless networking at home. Typical standard is IEEE802.11 (WiFi) or HyperLan in Europe. It is implemented by access points, but it does not support mobility;
  • Wide Area Network (WAN), for cellular communications, implemented by towers. Mobility is fully supported, so you can move from one cell to the next without interruption. Currently it is implemented by Spread Spectrum Technology via CDMA, CDMA-2000, TD-SCDMA, EDGE and so on. The current technology, 3G, supports voice and data on separate networks. For current developments, 4G technology will be supporting both data and voice on the same network and the standard IEEE802.16 (WiMax) and Long Term Evolution (LTE) are the candidates

OFDM and OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access)
  • Mobile WiMax is based on OFDMA;
  • OFDMA allows for subchannellization of data in both uplink and downlink;
  • Subchannels are just subsets of the OFDM carriers: they can use contiguous or randomly allocated frequencies;
  • FUSC: Full Use of Subcarriers. Each subchannel has up to 48 subcarriers evenly distributed through the entire band;
  • PUSC: Partial Use of Subcarriers. Each subchannel has subcarriers randomly allocated within clusters (14 subcarriers per cluster) .

An OFDM Symbol is made of
  • Data Carriers: data
  • Pilot Carriers: synchronization and estimation

IEEE802.16 Implementation
  • In addition to OFDM Modulator/Demodulator and Coding we need
  • Time Synchronization: to detect when the packet begins
  • Channel Estimation: needed in OFDM demodulator
  • Channel Tracking: to track the time varying channel (for mobile only)
  • In addition we need
  • Frequency Offset Estimation: to compensate for phase errors and noise in the oscillators
  • Offset tracking: to track synchronization errors

Since the preamble is random (almost like white noise), it has a short autocorrelation:

Channel Frequency Response Estimation:

1. Generate matrix

kF=[2,4,6,…,100, 156, …, 254]’; non-null frequencies (data and pilots)

n=[0,…,63]; time index for channel impulse response

V=exp(-j*(2*pi/256)*kF*n);

M=inv(V’*V+0.001*eye(64))*V’;

2. Generate vector z from received data y[n]:

Let n0 be the estimated beginning of the data, from time synchronization.

Then

y0=y(n0-256:n0-1); received preamble

Y0=fft(y0); decoded preamble

z=Y0(kF+1).*conj(Xp256(kF+1))/2; multiply by transmitted preamble

h=M*z; channel impulse response

In mobile applications, the channel changes and we need to track it.

IEEE802.16-2005 tracks the channel by embedding pilots within the data.
