Adaptive Modulation Techniques for Duplex OFDM Transmission

Record type: Article


The design tradeoffs of turbo-coded burst-by-burst adaptive orthogonal frequency division multiplex (OFDM) wide-band transceivers are analyzed. We demonstrate that upon aiming for a higher throughput a higher proportion of low-quality OFDM subcarriers has to be used for the transmission of inherently vulnerable high-order modem modes, transmitting several bits per subcarrier. Upon invoking turbo coding and adjusting the modem mode switching regime near-error-free performance can be achieved at the cost of a reduced throughput. Various blind modem mode detection techniques have also been investigated and the most complex channel coding trellis-based detection algorithm was found to be the most powerful. Last, the design tradeoffs of spectral pre-equalization have been explored and qualtified. We concluded that AOFDM provides a convenient framework for adjusting the required target integrity and throughput both with and without turbo channel coding.
