In OFDM based mobile communication systems, channel variation during one symbol period introduces intercarrier interference (ICI). Conventional pilot-aided equalization mitigates the ICI at the price of band inefficiency. On the other hand, the blind or semi-blind equalization method, which utilizes the known statistic properties of the transmitted data, will raise system complexity. In this letter, without bandwidth-consuming pilots, a novel channel estimation and tracking method based on an iterative equalization technique (IET) is proposed. The proposed approach successfully achieves a good compromise between bandwidth efficiency and system complexity, and its validity is demonstrated by numerical simulations, especially for fast fading channel.
