Written by leading authority Ramjee Prasad, this timely new work offers a complete understanding of OFDM technology and applications in wireless communications systems, placing emphasis on wireless LANs and PANs. OFDM is a key technology for beyond 3G communications, promising robust, high capacity, high speed wireless broadband multimedia networks. In this practical resource, established and new technologies are explained clearly and comprehensively, from OFDM basics to a detailed account of a new technique, hybrid OFDM CDMA slow frequency hopping.
My wireless (mobile) garden is full of flowers with varieties of flavors, for example,
CDMA, OFDM, and so forth.
Last year I realized my “OFDM flower” has become a “paragon” with the successful
completion of the work of of several masters, doctoral, and postdoctoral
candidates, for example Mohindar Jankiraman, Dusan Matic, Klaus Witrisal, Uma
Jha, Richard van Nee, Shinsuke Hara, Hiroshi Harada, and so on. Therefore, I
decided to put together in one place their interesting and valuable contributions,
particularly of those of Klaus, Jankiraman, Uma, and Richard.
Although I coauthored OFDM for Wireless Multimedia Communications with
Richard and Multicarrier Techniques for 4G Mobile Communications with Shinsuke,
this book is very different in that it presents an overview of the wireless local
area network (WLAN), wireless personal area network (WPAN), frequencydomain
channel model, a novel hybrid OFDM concept, and a practical OFDM
