Block Interleaved Frequency Division Multiple Access for Power Efficiency, Robustness, Flexibility and Scalability. Nov 2009.
Journal article, 2009
The multiple access solution in an IMT-Advanced mobile radio system has to meet challenging requirements such as
high throughput, low delays, high flexibility, good robustness, low computational complexity and a high power efficiency, especially in the uplink. In this paper a novel multiple access scheme for uplinks denoted as B-IFDMA is presented. We show that this scheme is able to provide equal or better error rate performance than the Single-Carrier Frequency Division Multiple Access (SCFDMA)
schemes IFDMA and LFDMA, when considering realistic channel estimation performance at the receiver and no reliable channel state information at the transmitter. We also show that B-IFDMA provides better amplifier efficiency than OFDMA and can provide better end-to-end energy efficiency than IFDMA and LFDMA. Moreover, the scheme shows a promisingly high robustness to frequency-offsets and Doppler spread. Thus, this scheme can be regarded as a promising solution for the uplink of future mobile radio systems.
