Block-equidistant resource mapping in OFDM, MC-CDMA and SS-MC-MA
Paper in proceedings, 2007

A resource allocation scheme for next generation multi-carrier systems is analyzed in this paper. The mapping scheme is based on a blockequidistant distribution of the user resources for nonfrequency- adaptive downlink transmissions. This leads to benefits of frequency diversity, potential power savings by user terminal sleep mode, and reduction of signalling overhead. The mapping scheme is applied and investigated for different multi-carrier schemes, namely OFDMA, MC-CDMA, and SS-MC-MA in the context of the WINNER system.
