The family of operational CDMA systems is interference-limited owing to the Inter Symbol Interference (ISI) and the Multiple Access Interference (MAI) encountered. They are interference-limited, because the orthogonality of the spreading codes is typically destroyed by the frequency-selective fading channel and hence complex multiuser detectors have to be used for mitigating these impairments. By contrast, the family of Large Area Synchronous (LAS) codes exhibits an Interference Free Window (IFW), which renders them attractive for employment in cost-efficient quasi-synchronous ad hoc networks dispensing with power control. In this contribution we investigate the performance of LAS DS-CDMA assisted ad hoc networks in the context of a simple infinite mesh of rectilinear node topology and benchmark it against classic DS-CDMA using both random spreading sequences as well as Walsh-Hadamard and Orthogonal Gold codes. It is demonstrated that LAS DS-CDMA exhibits a significantly better performance than the family of classic DS-CDMA systems operating in a quasi-synchronous scenario associated with a high node density, a low number of resolvable paths and a sufficiently high number of RAKE receiver branches.
