A conceptual study of OFDM-based multiple access schemes: Part 1 - Air interface requirements

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The multimedia era has started. The migration of computer (packet oriented) and telephony (circuit switched) networks in combination with an explosive development of new services, creates a mass market for public broadband communication. There are no reasons foreseen why these kinds of services should not go mobile. Future customers will not treat a mobile access differently than a fixed access to the network. The different types of services together with the demand of broadband mobile communication requires a new air interface. Limitations in the existing systems (flexibility and bit-rate) gives that they are not serious competitirs.
