This paper proposes a frequency domain nulling filter and Turbo equalizer to suppress interference in the uplink of one-cell reuse single-carrier time division multiple access (TDMA) systems. In the proposed system, the desired signal in a reference cell is interfered by interference signals including adjacent-channel interference (ACI), co-channel interference (CCI), and intersymbol interference (ISI). At the transmitter, after a certain amount of spectrum is nulled considering the expected CCI, the suppressed power due to nulling is reallocated to the remaining spectrum components so as to keep the total transmit power constant. In this process, when mitigation of ACI is necessary, after a certain amount of spectrum at both edges is nulled using an edge-removal filter, the aforementioned process is conducted. At the receiver, frequency domain SC/MMSE Turbo equalizer (FDTE) is employed to suppress ISI due to spectrum nulling process in the transmitter as well as the multipath fading. Computer simulations confirm that the proposed scheme is effective in suppression of CCI, ACI and ISI in one-cell reuse single-carrier TDMA systems.
