How QPSK & BPSK Modulation in WCDMA?

A data-modulation scheme defines how the data bits are mixed with the carrier signal, which is always a sine wave. There are three basic ways to modulate a carrier signal

Transmit Diversity & Receive Diversity

Transmit Diversity MISO = Multiple Input Single Output Principle More complex than SISO. 2 or more transmitters and one receiver. MISO is more commonly referred to as transmit diversity. The

LTE Downlink Logical Channel

Paging Control Channel(PCCH) A downlink channel that transfers paging information and system information change notifications. This channel isused for paging when the network does not know the location cell of

Main Characterictics of WCDMA

Support two basic modes: FDD and TDD modes High chip rate (3.84 Mcps) and data rates (up to 2 Mbps) Employs coherent detection on uplink and downlink based on the

Ranging in Wimax

Since each MS has a unique distance from the base station, it is critical in the uplink to synchronize the symbols and equalize the received power levels among the various

What are the Advantages of OFDMA in Wimax ?

 OFDMA is essentially a hybrid of FDMA and TDMA: Users are dynamically assigned subcarriers (FDMA) in different time slots (TDMA) . The advantages of OFDMA start with the advantages of

What is Fixed WiMAX ?

Fixed WiMAX offers cost effective point to point and point to multipoint solutions. What makes WiMAX so exciting is the broad range of applications it makes possible but not limited
