ABSTRACT
The basic problems of wireless access are that the available spectrum is too limited and there is great attenuation of energy.These can be solved by frequency reuse and by reducing the maximum distance from the terminal to the nearest base station.
Distributed wireless communication system (DWCS) is a new architecture for a wireless access system with distributed antennas, distributed processors, and distributed controlling. The basic idea is to flatten the tree cellular structure. With distributed antennas, system capacity can be expanded through dense frequency reuse, and transmission power can be greatly decreased. With distributed processors controlling, the system works like a software or network radio, so different standards can coexist, and the system capacity can be increased by co-processing of signals to and from multiple antennas.
The beyond 3G ie. 4G mobile communications is aimed at much larger capacity and coverage requirements. DWCS is candidate architecture to fulfill these requirements.

INTRODUCTION

With the rapid progress in telecommunications, more and more services are provided on the basis of broadband communications, such as video services and high-speed Internet. With worldwide fundamental construction of a backbone network based on optical fiber providing almost unlimited communications capability, the limited throughput of the subscriber loop becomes one of the most stringent bottlenecks.Compared to the capacity of the backbone network, which is measured by tens of gigabits per second, the throughput of the subscriber loop is much lower, only up to hundreds of megabits
per second for wired systems (including fixed wireless access). However, for mobile access the throughput is even lower, and depends on the mobility of the terminal. For example, the peak data rate is only 2 Mb/s for 3G systems.
Since there will be more and more need for mobile services, the poor throughput of mobile access not only limits user applications based on interconnection, but also wastes the capability of the backbone network. This case is quite similar to the traffic conditions shown in Fig. a, which is an image of an ultra-wide expressway with a few narrow entrances.


Since the little paths are rough,narrow, and crowded, the problems in Fig. a are:
? Terminals are far away from the expressway, which will consume much power.
? Too many cars converge into the same narrow paths.
? Little paths converge several times before going into the expressway.
? The expressway is used insufficiently, since few cars are running on it.
In telecommunications, the optical fiber network (expressway) is relatively much cheaper than the wireless spectrum (little paths), while the capability of the former is much greater than that of the later. As shown in Fig. b, besides the backbone expressway, there are some dedicated subexpressways used to provide direct entrance for distributed subscribers.The above example implies that the high-capacity wired network, being so cheap, can help us solve the problem of wireless access(too many users crowded in a very narrow bandwidth). The key issue is to provide each mobile user a direct or one-hop connection to an optical network.This structure also follows the trend in network evolution: the hierarchical or tree-like structure of traditional networks will be gradually flattened to simple single-layer ones.
PRIMARY PROBLEMS
The basic problem of wireless access is that the available spectrum is too limited compared to the almost unlimited service requirement, just like cars jammed in crowded narrow paths. Another basic problem is that there is great attenuation of energy. For example, the transmitter power may be 300 mW in order to transmit 2 Mb/s in a 2 GHz frequency band. Correspondingly, for a future system working on a 5 GHz band at a data rate of 100 Mb/s, we may need 30 W transmission with the same technique. This is impossible for a handset, considering the battery life and the radiation effect on the human body.
CLUES FOR SOLUTION

It seems that the only solution for the first problem is to explore the space resource. The cellular system is a successful example. With a cellular structure, the frequency can be reused as many times as needed. Also, the cellular structure reduces the maximum distance from the terminal to the nearest base station, which is also a clue to solve the second problem.
However, in a traditional cellular system, when the cell size gets smaller, capacity can be increased linearly with cell density. But this is based on the assumption of a large path loss exponent. Pathloss is the amount of loss introduced by the propagation environment between transmitter and receiver. When the cell size is small enough, the exponent gets small, which may be approximately 2; thus, the interference may be so large that the system may not work, as seen in Fig. 2.The above phenomenon indicates that the system capacity cannot be increased anymore when the density of cells reaches a certain level.

Fortunately, the information theory of minimum input minimum output (MIMO) indicates that for a system with M fixed antennas and N mobile antennas (the mobile antennas belong to one or more mobile terminals), the total capacity can be expressed as C = log2(det(I + HHH/s2)), where s2 denotes the receiver noise power, and H denotes the matrix of channel attenuation factor, which can be expressed as

where Hij denotes the channel attenuation factor submatrix from users in the jth cell to the ith base station.

For a cellular system with large path loss exponent, interference from other cells is very small, so elements in Hii are much greater than those in Hij(i?j), and H can be approximately expressed as

where Hii denotes the channel attenuation factor in each cell. Thus, the signal design and processing can be dealt with by each cell independently, which is the reason for the success of the cellular system.However, when the path loss exponent is relatively small, the interference from other cells will be intolerable if the signals in each cell are processed independently. Fortunately, in this case, since Hijs are independent, the rank of H is still very high, which is approximately the number of fixed antennas. Thus, the system capacity can still be proportional to the number of fixed antennas. Note that here we do not use the word cell, since the traditional concept of cell no longer exists. The signals to and from antennas located at different places must be designed and processed jointly. This is one of the motivations for our new architecture of distributed wireless communication system (DWCS).


AN OVERVIEW OF 4G NETWORKS

Traditional phone networks (2G cellular networks) such as GSM, used mainly for voice transmission, are essentially circuit-switched. 2.5G networks, such as GPRS, are an extension of 2G networks, in that they use circuit switching for voice and packet switching for data transmission. Circuit switched technology requires that the user be billed by airtime rather than the amount of data transmitted since that bandwidth is reserved for the user. Packet switched technology utilizes bandwidth much more efficiently, allowing each userâ„¢s packets to compete for available bandwidth, and billing users for the amount of data transmitted. Thus a move towards using packet-switched, and therefore IP networks, is natural.
3G networks were proposed to eliminate many problems faced by 2G and 2.5G networks, like low speeds and incompatible technologies (TDMA/CDMA) in different countries.
Expectations for 3G included increased bandwidth: 128 Kbps in a car, and 2 Mbps in fixed applications. In theory, 3G would work over North American as well as European and Asian wireless air interfaces. In reality, the outlook for 3G is neither clear nor certain. Part of the problem is that network providers in Europe and North America currently maintain separate standardsâ„¢ bodies (3GPP for Europe and Asia; 3GPP2 for North America). The standardsâ„¢ bodies mirror differences in air interface technologies. In addition there are financial questions as well that cast a doubt over 3Gâ„¢s desirability.There is a concern that in many countries, 3G will never be deployed. This concern is grounded, in part, in the growing attraction of 4G wireless technologies.
A 4G or 4th generation network is the name given to an IP-based mobile system that provides access through a collection of radio interfaces .A 4G network promises seamless roaming/handover and best connected service, combining multiple radio access interfaces (such as HIPERLAN, WLAN, Bluetooth, GPRS) into a single network that subscribers may use. With this feature, users will have access to different services, increased coverage, the convenience of a single device, one bill with reduced total access cost, and more reliable wireless access even with the failure or loss of one or more networks. At the moment, 4G is simply an initiative by R&D labs to move beyond the limitations, and deal with the problems of 3G (which is having trouble meeting its promised performance and throughput).
At the most general level, 4G architecture will include three basic areas of connectivity:
Personal Area Networking (such as Bluetooth), local high-speed access points on the network including wireless LAN technologies (such as IEEE 802.11 and HIPERLAN), and cellular connectivity. Under this umbrella, 4G calls for a wide range of mobile devices that support global roaming. Each device will be able to interact with Internet-based information that will be modified on the fly for the network being used by the device at that moment. In short, the roots of 4G networks lie in the idea of pervasive computing.
The glue for all this is likely to be software defined radio (SDR). SDR enables devices such as cell phones, PCs and a whole range of other devices to scan the airwaves for the best possible method of connectivity, at the best price. In an SDR environment, functions that were formerly carried out solely in hardware - such as the generation of the transmitted radio signal and the tuning of the received radio signal - are performed by software. Thus, the radio is programmable and able to transmit and receive over a wide range of frequencies while emulating virtually any desired transmission format.
4G Characteristics
The defining features of 4G networks are listed below:
? High Speed “4G systems should offer a peak speed of more than 100Mbits per second in stationary mode with an average of 20Mbits per second when travelling.
? High Network capacity - Should be at least 10 times that of 3G systems. This will quicken the download time of a 10-Mbyte file to one second on4G, from 200 seconds on 3G, enabling high-definition video to stream to phones and create a virtual reality experience on high-resolution handset screens.
? Fast/Seamless handover across multiple networks “ 4G wireless networks should support global roaming across multiple wireless and mobile network.
? Next-generation multimedia support - The underlying network for 4G must be able to support fast speed and large volume data transmission at a lower cost than today.
LOGIC STRUCTURE OF DWCS
For comparison, Fig. a shows the traditional tree structure of a cellular system, where each base transceiver station (BTS) processes the signals to and from mobile terminals within its coverage, and considers the signals of other cells as interference. Terminals at the boundary of cells may hand off between adjacent BTSs, and the handoff is controlled by the radio network controller (RNC). When cell size is reduced, hand-off frequency increases, and system overhead will be too heavy. Meanwhile, interference from other cells may become so strong that the capacity of each cell is very small. The basic idea of the distributed wireless communication system is to flatten such anarchitecture, as indicated in Fig. b. The structure consists of three layers: distributed antennas, distributed signal processing, and distributed high-layer control.


DISTRIBUTED ANTENNAS ” The new structure has a very high density of distributed antennas,so almost anywhere in the area may have a line of sight (LOS) to at least one fixed antenna.Each antenna is equipped with a transceiving device, which converts radio frequency (RF) to and from digital intermediate frequency (IF) signals. The received IF signal is transmitted to the processing center through optical fiber. The IF signals for transmission and system timing are also provided by the processing center through optical fiber. Thus, we may have a large number of very low-cost transceivers with no information loss introduced, since no baseband signal processing is performed here.
DISTRIBUTED SIGNAL PROCESSING ” This is the essential part of the architecture. All signal processing concerning wireless access is involved in this layer, including modulation/demodulation,channel coding/decoding, joint detection, channel measurements, medium access control (MAC),link layer control (LLC), radio link control (RLC), radio network control (RNC), and so on.Physically, this layer consists of two sublayers,distributed processing centers (DPCs) and the dedicated optical network. The optical network has two main tasks: to collect and deliver digital IF signals to and from distributed antennas, and to connect the processing centers so that co-processing among different DPCs can be performed based on high-speed real-time data exchange. The optical network may have any kind of topology ” star, bus, ring, or any other. Logically, this layer can be regarded as an extremely powerful processor (EPP), which connects all the RF modules of distributed antennas. This EPP is actually software radio equipment, and is realized by many workstations in parallel while exchanging data through a high speed network. With such a structure, the EPP knows all signals received from all antennas, and can control the transmission of all the antennas. Thus, the whole system works like a point-to-multipoint system with a large number of distributed antennas, which is actually a rather large-scale MIMO system.Practically, the coverage of signals from each terminal or distributed antenna is relatively small compared to the whole area, so each processing center is responsible for the distributed antennas located nearby. The regions for different processing centers may overlap each other;thus, co-processing must be involved. With a distributed processor, the system becomes scalable and software configurable. Thus, coexistence of difference systems, and system update and expansion may be quite easy.
DISTRIBUTED HIGH-LAYER CONTROL ” This is also a logic layer, which may be performed on the same platform as signal processing. This layer performs all high-layer protocol control,including all signaling, switching, and mobility management (gateway to core network).


SOME DEFINITIONS
FREQUENCY REUSE
The ability to use the same frequencies repeatedly across a cellular system, made possible by the basic design approach for cellular. Since each cell is designed to use radio frequencies only within its boundaries, the same frequencies can be reused in other cells not far away with little potential for interference. The reuse of frequencies is what enables a cellular system to handle a huge number of calls with a limited number
of channels.
CELL
The basic geographic unit of a cellular system and the basis for the generic industry term cellular.A city is divided into small cells, each of which is equipped with a low-powered radio transmitter/receiver or base station. The cells can vary in size depending on terrain and capacity demands. By controlling the transmission power, the radio frequencies assigned to one cell can be limited to the boundaries of that cell. When a wireless phone moves from one cell toward another, a computer at the Mobile Telephone Switching Office (MTSO) monitors the movement and at the proper time, transfers or hands off the phone call to the new cell and another radio frequency. The handoff is performed so quickly that it is not noticeable to the callers.
BTS (BASE TRANSCEIVER STATION)
In mobile communications, a BTS holds the radio transceivers that define a cell and coordinates the radio-link protocols with the mobile device.It usually consists of one or more receive/transmit antenna, microwave dish, and electronic circuitry. The BTS is the networking component of a mobile communications system from which all signals are sent and received. A BTS is also called a base station (BS) and is commonly referred to as a "cell phone tower."
SHADOW FADING
Fading is the variation in channel performance due to the dynamicity of the environment, which changes the receive signal strength.A phenomenon that occurs when a mobile moves behind an obstruction and experiences a significant reduction in signal power.
OUTAGE PROBABILITY
The probability that an outage will occur within a specified time period. outage: A telecommunications system service condition in which a user is completely deprived of service by the system. For a particular system or a given situation, an outage may be a service condition that is below a defined system operational threshold, i.e., below a threshold of acceptable performance.
RNC(RADIO NETWORK CONTROLLER)
These days, mobile telecommunication systems are in widespread use and a large number of people are using a variety of handy mobile terminals in various situations. Multimedia services such as audio and visual services as well as traditional voice services have become very important for the future growth of the market. The large variety of services that will become available in the future will be achieved by adding more functions, capacity, and bandwidth to the network.Also, a new global standard for the 3rd generation mobile system is needed. Such a standard is being prepared by the 3GPP(3rd Generation Partnership Project) . Radio network control system based on the CDMA global standard specifications of the 3GPP can provide multimedia services such as voice, TV telephone, packet, and multi-call at a higher quality and higher rate than those of the 2nd generation mobile telecommunication system. Radio network control system has a highly flexible and scalable structure. This has been achieved by dividing various functionalities such as diversity handover, common transport channel related transaction, user data transaction with protocol conversion, and bandwidth control based on ATM and other technologies into several transaction units. These transaction units use high-speed RISC processors and closely interact with each other under the control of the application part to achieve various high-performance functionalities. The RNC consist of several types of transaction units, and each unit has unique software and hardware structures for achieving the required functionalities, for example, diversity handover. The RNC is responsible for all radio resources and controls call processing such as connection establishment and diversity handover.
HANDOFF
The process by which the Mobile Telephone Switching Office passes a cellular phone conversation from one radio frequency in one cell to another radio frequency in another. The handoff is performed so quickly that users usually never notice.


NEW CONCEPTS
DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING OF WIRELESS SIGNALS

In a distributed wireless communication system, each layer is distributed, and the most important concept is the distributed processing of wireless signals. Unlike a traditional cellular system, whose signal processing is performed in the BTS for each cell, the processors in DWCS are separated from the antennas, each processor performs the signals to and from many antennas distributed in the area, and there is tight co-processing among different processors.Although the processing layer can be logically considered as a central processing unit, signal processing is performed in parallel by many processors distributed in the area. In such a structure, signals to and from multiple antennas can be processed jointly at the nearest processor so that the capability of the channel can be fully utilized by a mechanism similar to MIMO.Meanwhile, high-speed connectivity between processors enables interworking among them, and processing tasks can be dynamically arranged and delivered among the processors, which can make full use of the procesing power. Distributed processors also help to increase the reliability of the system, since in the failure of one processor, its processing tasks can be moved to another processor.This processing structure is also a kind of software radio, or network radio, which is based on configurable processors connected by a high speed network. With its configurability, the system can easily support multiple standards and be updated and expanded freely.
THE VIRTUAL BASE STATION
In a traditional cellular system, the base station performs the signal processing for its own antenna and users.However, in DWCS, the function of signal processing is put into a distributed processing network. Thus, the processing function for the user of a certain region no longer belongs to a certain
processor, and thus becomes a virtual base station (VBS). A VBS provides signal processing service for users within reach of the set of antennas. The function of a VBS can be performed among several processors. In order to process the signals for the overlapping area, data communication between VBSs is necessary.
THE VIRTUAL CELL
The traditional concept of cells no longer exists in DWCS instead, we propose a new concept, the virtual cell. Unlike a traditional cell that is base-station-centered, a virtual cell is MT-centered. In other words, the virtual cell is a set of distributed antennas that are within reach of a certain mobile terminal(MT). Each MT has its own virtual cell, and it changes as the MT moves or the environment changes (e.g., change of system load). A virtual cell is not exactly a real cell; it is only useful in signal processing. The processing layer selects a virtual cell for each MT dynamically, and detects and optimizes for transmission jointly with the virtual cell. Some MIMO techniques will be involved in virtual cells, so interference from other users can be canceled or suppressed.

SYSTEM CAPACITY VIEW
In order to evaluate the system capacity, we constructed a simple system. Here, we consider a system with CDMA signals. Although in considering the high throughput requirements for future mobile communications, a multiple carrier technique such asa orthogonal frequency-division multiplex (OFDM), may be preferred, in DWCS, interference from other users is very strong, so some code-division multiple access(CDMA) mechanism must be involved to distinguish users.
Code Division Multiple Access is a digital technology that provides crystal clear voice quality in an exciting new generation of wireless communications products and services. Using digital encoding "spread spectrum" radio frequency (RF) techniques, CDMA provides much better and cost effective voice quality, privacy, system capacity, and flexibility than other wireless technologies, along with enhanced services such as short messaging, e-mail and Internet access.CDMA uses spread spectrum technology to break up speech into small, digitized segments and encode them to identify each call. A large number of users can thus share the same band of spectrum and greatly increase system capacity CDMA works by converting speech into digital information, which is then transmitted as a radio signal over a wireless network. Using a unique code to distinguish each different call, CDMA enables many more people to share the airwaves at the same time - without static, cross-talk or interference.
The parameters are described as follows:
¢ Service activity factor: 0.375
¢ Spreading factor: 127
¢ Log-normal shadow fading parameter: 8 dB
¢ Required signal-to-interference ratio (SIR): 7 dB
¢ Number of antennas in a virtual cell: m
UPLINK CAPACITY
UPLINK-The portion of a telecommunications path from the ground to the satellite, also referred to as the forward link.
Here, we will provide some of the analytical results with the assumption of perfect power control on shadowing effect. Figure 5 shows the average outage probability of uplink vs. user number per antenna, with virtual cell size as a parameter. From the analytical results, we find an interesting phenomenon: the outage probability of users may differ from different locations. The maximum outage probability occurs at the site of the antenna. The reason may be that the effective diversity order is only 1 at this point, while at other places the diversity gain is much better. Figure also shows the effect of path loss exponent a on capacity. We can see clearly that when the virtual cell size is small, the decrease of a introduces significant capacity loss. However, this loss becomes negligibly small when mgets larger. Especially when user density is very small, the decrease of a may have a positive effect, since we may get more diversity gain than the loss in interference. This result indicates that system capacity can be increased almost infinitely with increased antenna density, whether or not the path loss factor changes. This is one of the most significant differences from a tradition-
al cellular system.

DOWNLINK CAPACITY
DOWNLINK-The portion of a telecommunications path from a satellite to the ground. Also referred to as the reverse link.
Downlink capacity depends on the assumption of the transmission scheme. The following results are based on the assumption that an MT has only one antenna. The red lines in Fig show the results for equal power allocation on m antennas (m is the virtual cell size), which means that the m antennas for a certain user transmit same information with different spreading modes and the same power. We can see from the figure that the capacity decreases when m increases.The reason is that with larger m, there will be more transmitted power wasted on poor antennas, which introduces more interference. Thus, it seems that selective transmission among antennas may be the best choice. Fortunately, with another assumption we may get much better results. Here we assume that m best antennas for a certain user transmit the same waveform to it, and the timing and phase of transmission is adjusted so that the signals from m antennas arrive at the user at the same time with the same phase. The power allocation among antennas is proportional to the channel gain of the antennas. We call this scheme maximum ratio transmission (MRT). With MRT, the receiving SIR can be increased with m; thus, more capacity can be achieved (Fig.).

FEASIBILITY OF MRT
Of course, the success of MRT needs very strict conditions, including timing and phase adjustment. Besides, the result is only for a flat fading channel. For a frequency selective channel, the channels from different antennas may be of different delay spreads, and fading is independent.
To solve this problem, multicarrier technique may be used. For example, with OFDM, each subcarrier can be regarded as flat. Thus, we can adjust the phase of each transmitted subcarrier so that the received SIR is maximized. Obviously, such a scheme needs knowledge of the channel at the transmitter. This can be achieved by either time-division duplex(TDD) or feedback from users. Either of these may restrict the mobility of users. Thus, one feasible solution is to involve the two transmission schemes simultaneously, MRT for low mobility and selective transmission for high mobility.
ACCESSING POWER
Besides the benefit of capacity increase, another significant advantage of DWCS is that the accessing power of an MT may be decreased greatly. The relationship between the required transmission power is proportional to (antenna density)“a/2, where a is the path loss exponent. Moreover, with a decrease in access distance the path loss exponent also decreases, so the required transmission power may be even lower.Consider again the example discussed previously in this article: we may need 30 W to achieve 100Mb/s transmission at 5 GHz in the current cellular system. However, with distributed antennas of 10 times the density, the required power can be 20 dB lower, which is less than 300 mW, and is actually quite practical.

NETWORK RADIO
As communications technology continues its rapid transition from analog to digital, more functions of contemporary radio systems are implemented in software - leading toward the software radio. A software radio is a radio whose channel modulation waveforms are defined in software. That is, waveforms are generated as sampled digital signals, converted from digital to analog via a wideband DAC and then possibly upconverted from IF to RF. The receiver, similarly, employs a wideband Analog to Digital Converter (ADC) that captures all of the channels of the software radio node. The receiver then extracts, downconverts and demodulates the channel waveform using software on a general purpose processor. Software radios employ a combination of techniques that include multi-band antennas and RF conversion; wideband ADC and Digital to Analog conversion (DAC); and the implementation of IF, baseband processing functions in general purpose programmable processors. The resulting software-defined radio (or "software radio") in part extends the evolution of programmable hardware, increasing flexibility via increased programmability. And in part it represents an ideal that may never be fully implemented but that nevertheless simplifies and illuminates tradeoffs in radio architectures that seek to balance standards compatibility, technology insertion and the compelling economics of today's highly competitive marketplaces.
The concept of software radio has progressed for about 10 years. In different environments and different systems, different kinds of software radio architecture are proposed. Software radio based on a PC network is one of them, which is suitable for applications in base stations. Its basic idea is to perform the baseband signal processing in parallel among many PCs, which are connected by a network.
This idea is now extended inDWCS; here,the PCs are replaced by much more powerful processors, and the interconnection among these processors is evolved from an ether network to an optical network, to ensure high-speed data exchange and accurate timing. Another extension is that the processors are no longer located at the same place, but are distributed in a large area.
This architecture is also a kind of realization of radio functions, and thus can be called network radio. Besides all the benefits inherited from software radio (flexibility, scalability, easy update, supporting multiple standards, etc.), it is much more suitable for large area radio network processing, and enhances system reliability.


ADVANTAGES
? No fast handoff problem ” The virtual cell changes dynamically with the movement of the user, so no handoff is needed.
? Large capacity ” With distributed antennasand distributed processing, the problem of increased interference in traditional cellular systems is overcome.
? Much lower power consumption ” The transmission power can be greatly reduced.
? Seamless coverage ” The antenna terminal is so cheap that the density of antennas can be very high.
? Suitable for nonuniformly distributed traffic ”
simply by adjusting the density of antennas.
? Opened structure ” Existing and future standards and techniques can be realized on the platform of DWCS, and the resources of the wired system can be utilized sufficiently.
? Flexible ” The concept of software radio enables DWCS to accommodate different standards without hardware modification.
? Extendibility ” The opened structure ensures that redeveloping and extension can easily be achieved on the same platform. Scalability ” The scale of DWCS(including the number of antennas and processors)can be configured freely so that the cost of system devices can be minimized.
? Easy to update Less harmful to human health ” A result of
much lower electromagnetic radiation.

CONCLUSION
DWCS, proposed here, is a new architecture for a future wireless access system. Although it has many advantages, discussed here, it is still immature at this time. In order to make it a reasonable structure for the future, some of its ideas must be applied in existing systems. As the first stage, the existing distributed repeater connected by optical fibers can be regarded as a special but simple case of DWCS.
While the industrialization of 3G mobile communications is ongoing, studies have been started for techniques and architecture for future mobile or wireless access, namely 4G or beyond 3G. Since beyond 3G is aimed at the system for at least 10 years from now, much larger capacity and coverage requirements are put forward. DWCS is one of the candidate architectures to fulfill these requirements.

DISTRIBUTED WIRELESS COMMUNICATION SYSTEM full report

ABSTRACT

Wireless cellular communication systems have experienced a rapid growth during the last two decades. The first-generation (1G) systems were analog and provided wireless speech service. The major improvement in the transition to second-generation (2G) systems was the digital transmission technology, which enabled the use of error correction coding and increased service quality and capacity. The 2G systems have evolved further to provide also packet-switched data service in addition to the conventional circuit-switched services like the familiar speech service. Today, data rates of the order of hundreds or even thousands of kilobits per second are provided. Still, the 2G systems were designed mainly for wireless speech service.
As the markets have emerged for high-speed wireless multimedia, the old speech-optimized infrastructures are no longer enough. 2G systems, like the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), will continue to evolve to provide data services with data rates up to 384 kb/s. To go beyond this, new infrastructures that are suitable for the transmission of high-speed wireless data are being built all over the world. These infrastructures, called third-generation (3G) systems, are specified to provide data rates even greater than 2 Mb/s, which enables many new services, including streaming video, web browsing and file transfer. To be of interest to the customers, the new services should be cheap and of high quality. An important step for achieving these goals is the selection of the multiple access method. Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (Wideband CDMA or WCDMA) has been selected as the air interface for these networks.

The basic problems of wireless access are that the available spectrum is too limited and there is great attenuation of energy.These can be solved by frequency reuse and by reducing the maximum distance from the terminal to the nearest base station.
Distributed wireless communication system (DWCS) is a new architecture for a wireless access system with distributed antennas, distributed processors, and distributed controlling. The basic idea is to flatten the tree cellular structure. With distributed antennas, system capacity can be expanded through dense frequency reuse, and transmission power can be greatly decreased. With distributed processors controlling, the system works like a software or network radio, so different standards can coexist, and the system capacity can be increased by co-processing of signals to and from multiple antennas.
The beyond 3G ie. 4G mobile communications is aimed at much larger capacity and coverage requirements. DWCS is candidate architecture to fulfill these requirements.

INTRODUCTION

With the rapid progress in telecommunications, more and more services are provided on the basis of broadband communications, such as video services and high-speed Internet. With worldwide fundamental construction of a backbone network based on optical fiber providing almost unlimited communications capability, the limited throughput of the subscriber loop becomes one of the most stringent bottlenecks.Compared to the capacity of the backbone network, which is measured by tens of gigabits per second, the throughput of the subscriber loop is much lower, only up to hundreds of megabits
per second for wired systems (including fixed wireless access). However, for mobile access the throughput is even lower, and depends on the mobility of the terminal. For example, the peak data rate is only 2 Mb/s for 3G systems.
Since there will be more and more need for mobile services, the poor throughput of mobile access not only limits user applications based on interconnection, but also wastes the capability of the backbone network. This case is quite similar to the traffic conditions shown in Fig. a, which is an image of an ultra-wide expressway with a few narrow entrances.

Wireless communication and Wireless transmission sheet

Wireless communication is the transfer of information over a distance without the use of enhanced electrical conductors or "wires".[1] The distances involved may be short (a few meters as in television remote control) or long (thousands or millions of kilometers for radio communications). When the context is clear, the term is often shortened to "wireless". Wireless communication is generally considered to be a branch of telecommunications.
It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers and or garage doors, wireless computer mice, keyboards and headsets, satellite television and cordless telephones

MIMO Wireless Communication

Jean-Paul Linnartz

About the contents of the course

MIMO is an important trend that shapes the future of wireless communication systems
MIMO is a multidisciplinary topic
MIMO is being addressed in Delft, Eindhoven and Twente.


Capita Selecta in Wireless Communication


This course covers selected topics in Wireless Communications, including RF, information theory and software radio architectures. Yet the topics are not a random collection of faculty hobby horses, but are seen as important factors that push the limits of future systems:
One-chip radio, i.e., combining RF and BB into one chip solution, requires an new multi disciplinary approach to mitigating the imperfections of analog (CMOS) circuits by digital signal processing.
To achieve an adequate link budget for high frequency, multi gigabit, adaptive combination of multiple antenna signals is required.
There are power-consumption limits to pushing to A/D Converter further to the antenna. High-rate MIMO signals would pose unacceptably high demands on power hungry A/D converters, unless signals are optimally preconditioned before digitization.
The ever increasing density of using the radio spectrum call for signal separation, interference cancellation and beam-steering. DSP algorithms can push performance and the insights from information theory increasing set the stage for innovation.
More intelligent spectrum access techniques (“cognitive radio”) require flexible processor platforms, adaptive front-ends, and new adaptive algorithm

wireless communications

INTRODUCTION


The outgrowth of the wireless communications market has produced vast
opportunities to enhance and improve the communications between individuals.
Because of this growth the need to optimize Radio Frequency (RF) spectral
resources and provide ever-increasing services is essential.
To support the increase in wireless services while making best use of available
resources, the iDEN system capitalizes on the fact that communications can be:
• Half-duplex — where one user is transmitting (talking) and other users are
receiving (listening)
• Full-duplex — where there is an open bi-directional link that allows full twoway
communication
Many times communication does not require a full-duplex link. Messaging, paging,
some forms of data communication and structured voice communication are, or can
effectively operate in, half-duplex mode (Chapter 4, Dispatch Call Processing).
Traditional telephone conversations and more intensive data links require the ability
to interrupt; that requires full-duplex operation (Chapter 5, Interconnect Call
Processing).
The iDEN system provides both full and half-duplex operations. This melding of
communications methods allows much of the voice traffic to be run in half-duplex
mode, while providing full-duplex functionality when required.
As part of the ongoing effort to support the outgrowth in wireless communication,
the iDEN system is an integration of traditional Push-To-Talk (PTT), half-duplex,
analog radio technology and feature-rich, full-duplex digital cellular
communications. This integration of mobile communication technologies provides
state-of-the-art functions and benefits to mobile users while optimizing the available
infrastructure resources.

INTRODUCTION/OBJECTIVE
Title of the Project
Wireless communication
objective of project and implimentation

To eliminate wires and cables between stationary and mobile devices, facilitates fast and smooth data and voice communication.
Introduction
The scope of the project and implimentation involves the establishment of the connection between the two entities one master and the other client. Any two devices that come in contact can exchange data with the help of this bluetooth protocol stack. . The medium of exchange mostly used is electromagnetic radiations; this is one of the forms of wireless communication. Due to hardware constraints in using this wireless form of communication the best approach used in the project and implimentation for data communication is through socket programming assuming a network connection.
BLUETOOTH is a Radio specification protocol for wireless connectivity between various devices having a working range between 10 m to 100m in the 2.4 GHz band. The channel is represented by a pseudo-random hopping sequence hopping through the 79 or 23 RF channels. Two or more Bluetooth devices using the same channel form a piconet. There is one master and one or more slave(s) in each piconet. The BLUETOOTH protocol stack consists of various layers each having various functionalities.
In the BLUETOOTH protocol stack, the layer just below the Applications layer is the Session layer, which makes use of OBEX functions, which initiates data exchange between the two devices.
The OBEX (OBject EXchange) is the session layer of the BLUETOOTH stack. It manages sessions and dialogues between BLUETOOTH devices. Another important function of the OBEX is to exchange objects between a set of BLUETOOTH devices. OBEX also handles multiple connections. It performs all the operations in a request-response format.
The OBEX layer is designed for use in applications of BLUETOOTH such as File Transfer, Synchronisation Profile, and Businesscard Exchange. The OBEX layer will be integrated on the stack and used in any of the devices that are BLUETOOTH specific. This layer helps in establishing the connection and maintaining the connection. It helps the dialogue control between the two entities.
The scope of the project and implimentation involves the establishment of the connection between the two entities – one master and the other client. Any two devices that come in contact can exchange data with the help of this bluetooth protocol stack. The medium of exchange mostly used is electromagnetic radiations; this is one of the forms of wireless communications. Due to the hardware constraints in using this wireless form of communications, the best approach used in the project and implimentation for data communication is through sockets programming assuming a network connection.
This project and implimentation demonstrates the data exchange between a master and a single client using the form of OBEX (Object Exchange) present in Sessions layer of the Bluetooth protocol stack. The data exchange between the two entities is done through Sockets programming making use of UDP packet data exchange. Each request of data exchange gets an acknowledgement for the data received since the data is sent in the form of packets. Each packet size is fixed based on the OBEX protocol standards.
AN Introduction TO Object Exchange Protocol
One of the most basic and desirable uses of the IrDA infrared communication protocols is simply to send an arbitrary “thing”, or data object, from one device to another, and to make it easy for both application developers and users to do so. We refer to this as object exchange (un-capitalized), and it is the subject of the protocol described in this document.
This document describes the current status of the protocol IrOBEX (for IrDA Object Exchange, OBEX for short). OBEX is a compact, efficient, binary protocol that enables a wide range of devices to exchange data in a simple and spontaneous manner. OBEX is being defined by members of the Infrared Data Association to interconnect the full range of devices that support IrDA protocols. It is not, however, limited to use in an IrDA environment.
OBEX performs a function similar to HTTP, a major protocol underlying the World Wide Web. However, OBEX works for the many very useful devices that cannot afford the substantial resources required for an HTTP server, and it also targets devices with different usage models from the Web. OBEX is enough like HTTP to serve as a compact final hop to a device “not quite” on the Web.
A major use of OBEX is a “Push” or “Pull” application, allowing rapid and ubiquitous communications among portable devices or in dynamic environments. For instance, a laptop user pushes a file to another laptop or PDA; an industrial computer pulls status and diagnostic information from a piece of factory floor machinery; a digital camera pushes its pictures into a film development kiosk, or if lost can be queried (pulled) for the electronic business card of its owner. However, OBEX is not limited to quick connect- transfer-disconnect scenarios - it also allows sessions in which transfers take place over a period of time, maintaining the connection even when it is idle.
PCs, pagers, PDAs, phones, printers, cameras, auto-tellers, information kiosks, calculators, data collection devices, watches, home electronics, industrial machinery, medical instruments, automobiles, and office equipment are all candidates for using OBEX. To support this wide variety of platforms, OBEX is designed to transfer flexibly defined “objects”; for example, files, diagnostic information, electronic business cards, bank account balances, electrocardiogram strips, or itemized receipts at the grocery store. “Object” has no lofty technical meaning here; it is intended to convey flexibility in what information can be transferred. OBEX can also be used for Command and Control functions - directives to TVs, VCRs, overhead project and implimentationors, computers, and machinery. Finally, OBEX can be used to perform complex tasks such as database transactions and synchronization.
OBEX is designed to fulfill the following major goals:
1. Application friendly - provide the key tools for rapid development of applications.
2. Compact - minimum strain on resources of small devices.
3. Cross platform.
4. Flexible data handling, including data typing and support for standardized types - this will allow devices to be simpler to use via more intelligent handling of data inside.
5. Maps easily into Internet data transfer protocols.
6. Extensible - provide growth path to future needs like security, compression, and other extended features without burdening more constrained implementations.
7. Testable and Debuggable.
Bluetooth is short-range wireless communications technology
• Announced in May 1998 by an industry consortium (SIG)
• Low cost
• Simple, but powerful, applications
• Huge growth predicted
This project and implimentation demonstrates the data exchange between a master and a single client using the form of OBEX (Object Exchange) present in Sessions layer of the Bluetooth protocol stack. The data exchange between the two entities is done through Sockets programming making use of UDP packet data exchange. Each request of data exchange gets an acknowledgement for the data received since the data is sent in the form of packets. Each packet size is fixed based on the OBEX protocol standards.
It is a cutting edge open specification that enables short range (10m – 100m) wireless connections between computers, handholds, personal digital assistants, mobile phones, camera phones, printers, digital cameras, headset, keyboards and even a computer mouse. Bluetooth wireless technology uses a globally available frequency band of 2.4 GHz, for worldwide compatibility. Bluetooth protocol stack consist of various layers each having various functionalities.
• A new Global Standard for data and voice.
• Good Bye Cables!

Wireless communication is the transfer of information over a distance without the use of electrical conductors or "wires". The distances involved may be short (a few meters as in television remote control) or long (thousands or millions of kilometers for radio communications). Wireless communication is generally considered to be a branch of telecommunications.

It encompasses various types of fixed, mobile, and portable two-way radios, cellular telephones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and wireless networking. Other examples of wireless technology include GPS units, garage door openers and or garage doors, wireless computer mice, keyboards and headsets, satellite television and cordless telephones.

Wireless operations permits services, such as long-range communications, that are impossible or impractical to implement with the use of wires. The term is commonly used in the telecommunications industry to refer to telecommunications systems (e.g. radio transmitters and receivers, remote controls, computer networks, network terminals, etc.) which use some form of energy (e.g. radio frequency (RF), infrared light, laser light, visible light, acoustic energy, etc.) to transfer information without the use of wires. Information is transferred in this manner over both short and long distances.


In 1895, Guglielmo Marconi opened the way for modern wireless communications by transmitting the three-dot Morse code for the letter ‘S’ over a distance of three kilometers using electromagnetic waves. From this beginning, wireless communications has developed into a key element of modern society.

From satellite transmission, radio and television broadcasting to the now ubiquitous mobile telephone, wireless communications has revolutionized the way societies function.

Wireless communications and the economic goods and services that utilise it have some special characteristics that have motivated specialised studies. First, wireless communications relies on a scarce resource – namely, radio spectrum. Second, use of spectrum for wireless communications required the development of key complementary technologies; especially those that allowed higher frequencies to be utilised more efficiently. Finally, because of its special nature, the efficient use of spectrum required the coordinated development of standards. Those standards in turn played a critical role in the diffusion of technologies that relied on spectrum use.
