Abstract

The exponential growth of cellular radio, WLANs and the Internet sets the context for a discussion on the role and objectives of 4G. In this paper OFDM is proposed as a leading candidate for a 4G cellular communications standard. The key design considerations and link parameters for a 4G OFDM system are identified and initial physical layer performance results are presented for a number of transmission modes and channel scenarios. Additionally, space-time techniques are considered as a means of enhancing the performance of the coded OFDM system.
