Program Overview & Objectives:
Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) is the transmission technique for all emerging wireless technologies such as Wimax and LTE, because it facilitates very high data rates over a wireless medium. This is very exciting for wireless operators eager to deploy multimedia rich Internet content with Seamless access anywhere, anytime. This course introduces the fundamental concepts of OFDM and OFDMA systems. Discussion topics include orthogonality, types of subcarriers, the challenges of radio propagation and OFDM-based solutions. OFDMA basics are described, which include scalability, frame structure and resource allocation strategies. This course steps through the key OFDM operations in an end-to-end transmission. This course also discusses key multiple antenna concepts and techniques that help achieve higher spectral efficiency in OFDM systems.
