Summary: 
A spectrum suppressed transmission that increases the frequency utilization efficiency, defined as throughput/bandwidth, by suppressing the required bandwidth has been proposed. This is one of the most effective schemes to solve the exhaustion problem of frequency bandwidths. However, in spectrum suppressed transmission, its transmission quality potentially degrades due to the ISI making the bandwidth narrower than the Nyquist bandwidth. In this paper, in order to improve the transmission quality degradation, we propose the spectrum suppressed transmission applying both FEC (forward error correction) and LE (linear equalization). Moreover, we also propose a new channel allocation scheme for the spectrum suppressed transmission, in multi-channel environments over a satellite transponder. From our computer simulation results, we clarify that the proposed schemes are more effective at increasing the system throughput than the scheme without spectrum suppression.
